Summer is arriving, and at the DISDads Podcast, that means tournament time!
Each summer since 2012, we’ve brought you a different elimination tournament, with a different method of setting and organizing the field, and we’re back at it again this year at 7:00 p.m. Central Time on Sunday, May 7, with our first-ever Walt Disney World Quick Service Dining Tournament. We’ll start with a full field of 64 quick service restaurants, progressively narrowing the field over the next several weeks, until we reach the championship rounds for the July 2, 2017 live show.
For this Sunday’s live show, host Aaron Rittmaster will be joined by Terry Hawkins, Josh Shusterman, David Juart and Justin West, who will serve as “captains.” During the show, the captains will each be selecting 16 quick service restaurant locations, which will serve as their “team” for the tournament. Remember – if you want to participate in the chat, you’ll need to register at DisTalkRadio.com – we’ll get those accounts approved as quickly as possible.
