The political unrest surrounding the growing Nazi regime brings a new found tension to the traditional camaraderie and spirit of the games, and the individuals who have trained their entire lives for this defining moment must, in the end, find it within themselves the will to achieve their own personal best in a triumphant moment of shared victory. Show dates are the first two weeks in May, 2015. Patrons are given preferred seating and recognition in the Waa-Mu program.
