The Masters Tour 2016 - IL Pride - November 19th

Bloomington, IL - November 19, 2016

2016 Masters Tour is here... with a projected 3,500 competitors likely to join the battle this year, we are looking forward to seeing you with us. Masters are a focus for The Garage Games, because we are masters, and we have been following since 2005 (no affiliation to the Garage Games). Veterans as it were, and we know that this competitive edge gives us a life edge. Gain the edge, have fun, and compete without expectation. It is simply fun to have this as our sport! #mastersrock #betheone
