Deck the balls with hoops of holly…

Well, it’s not even Thanksgiving, but the Christmas music channels have started on XM Radio and our household holiday party has been scheduled. So, maybe it’s not too early to start planning a trip to the 2010 Hickman County First Farmers Above the Rim Christmas Invitational Basketball Tournament held on December 27th, 28th and 29th at Hickman County High School. The Girl’s Tournament Brackets are posted on the HCHS Women’s Basketball webpage and the Boy’s Tournament Brackets are posted on the HCHS Men’s Basketball webpage. They put on a great tournament last year and one can expect a lot of great basketball action during this holiday season.
