January 30-February 2, 2020 | Lou Bradley Memorial– The Lou Bradley Memorial has been a long time IRT event, but making the jump to a Tier 1 this year has everybody excited! The atmosphere will be electric, and if you’ve never had a reason to visit Sun Prairie, Wisconsin in the Winter, this is it!

June 18-21, 2020 | Black & Gold – To close out the Season, the IRT is headed to Chihuahua, Mexico! It’s been since 2011 since a Tier 1 in Mexico, and they are known for having a large number of strong high-level players, so we have a feeling this event might have one of our largest Tier 1 draws to date!
