5 de Mayo Tournament

Posted on April 24th, 2014 at 3:37 pm, in Uncategorized

 

2014 Fifth Annual Cinco de Mayo Tournament – Leon Paul Cup

OVER $5000 IN PRIZES! INCLUDING LEON PAUL GEAR AND A TRIP TO MEXICO TO BE RAFFLED.

Cinco de Mayo marks the date in 1862 that has taken on great importance for Mexicans. It marks the victory of a poorly trained and equipped army of approximately 4,500 over the much larger professional force of 6,500 sent by Napoleon the III to reestablish French foothold in the Americas. It would be the last time a European power attempted to re colonize the Americas.
