I had to figure out how to get to the small Bavarian Village of Haimhausen, in the countryside, where the tournament was hosted. After serveral modes of transport to get there, including the for the last leg, only one bus that went every hour on the weekday and every 3 on the weekend, i was able to make it to the tournament each day but had to mind the schedules. The town was what you would expect with all red roof's, a church, a castle, and farm fields close by. Haimhausen (the first day i had to wonder around the village to find the school):
The kids were hosted at the players and other students houses for the extended weekend. David and i stayed in a hotel in Unterschleissheim and each morning we went our seperate ways. Melissa had a conference in Titisee Germany which is in the Black forest.

It was a great experience for Noah staying overnight at a BIS students house with another of his team members. They played video games and after dinner they shot hoops outside.
Noah up against the Bonn team (they won the tournament), they had all 14 year olds on there "A" team (as they had two teams) and were a great team to watch as well as great sportsmen. Noah's bracket was very tough as they had the first and second place teams and third place team in their qualifiing pool.
Noah and the Berlin British International School (they took second place), again Noah is a little out sized:
