Teen Video Game Tournament & Free-play
Friday, May 24, 3-5 pm
Community Room. Compete against your friends in a friendly video game tournament at Rockland Public Library. On Friday May 24th the tournament will feature Forza Motorsport 4 on the Xbox 360. No experience necessary - there will be time for practice before the tournament. Compete for prizes, or free-play on the Wii / laptops. Healthy snacks provided.
We had a great turnout for the Wii Punch Out tournament earlier this month! Once everyone got the hang of the controls, the bouts were evenly matched and very competitive! Congrats to Michael, the Punch Out! Champion.
