Welcome to The 2017 Ruck-a-Buck Tournament!

We are pleased to welcome you to the ninth iteration of our annual tournament. 

In conjunction with DeKalb County, this year's tournament will be hosted at Mercer University's Atlanta Campus, and have an extra focus on highlighting local Atlanta businesses.  Even if you're an experienced Atlanta visitor - we're certain you'll find new and exciting things to do in our city.  While you're here, explore the unparalleled global flavors of Buford Highway, enjoy the night life, and if you still have the energy, take in the views from scenic Stone Mountain.

However you choose to spend your time in Atlanta, we are thrilled that you have decided to join us here to continue and grow our tournament.  Team, Tournament, Pre/Post-Tournament events and lodging details are below, as well as information on how to register.
