STRAIGHT FROM THE STRIP

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas - unless you were there for Founders Cup 2009. Take kickball,
throw in some beers and you never know what might happen. Here is a brief glimpse at the craziness
that was Founders Cup 2009!

before competing in a day full of fun and games at Desert Breeze Park.
