The deadline is fast approaching for the adult open basketball competition at this summer’s Iowa Games. Executuve director Jim Halihan say the postal deadline is Wednesday and the on-line registration deadline is the 12th.

The open division is a large one at the Iowa Games in part because there are not that many tournaments for adult teams to play in.

Halihan says teams qualify for the summer games by taking part in one of several regionals being held. June 17th they’ll be in Cedar Falls and June 24th in Des Moines and Iowa City with the regionals.

Halihan says teams can choose which regional they want to play in. He says they haven’t limited the teams to a specific regional, and have given them a couple of weekends to choose from. The Iowa Games are July 13th through the 16th and the 21st through the 23rd in Ames.
