The 2017 FLAMES-Sports Columbia Gorge 3v3 Basketball Tournament will add an exciting new element to Art & Wine Fusion. Boys and Girls teams will compete in the streets around Rheingarten Park on July 22-23 in association with Art & Wine Fusion 2017, playing in grades 3-10 based brackets (some brackets may be combined if needed).
Local teams are also welcome to register on the Flames-Sports website. Registration is $125/4-person team, but space is limited so sign up soon.
This event alone is expected to bring a couple thousand kids and parents to town for the tournament in addition to the usual 2,500+ Art & Wine Fusion participants, so it will add quite a bit of action and excitement to the overall event.

WE BELIEVE THAT YOUTH SPORTS IS A TOOL AND OPPORTUNITY TO GROW OUR YOUTH NOT ONLY ATHLETICALLY BUT MENTALLY AND THROUGH CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AS WELL.
