When the MLL Pro outdoor lacrosse league came along 2 summers ago, and many of the players with "big names" could no longer come to The Shootout, it signified a new and uncertain era for the Elite tournament. That new era quickly shaped itself when many of the current best college players from all over the country started jumping on the stage headed to Vail. The Elite event has quickly become a piece of modern "art". The mountain landscape will be highlighted by one of the finest collections of young gun lacrosse talent that you will find anywhere. Stars can be seen everywhere you look, but team play has become chic again, and this athletic, fast paced style will be the main fireworks on display in Vail this July 4 holiday, as the fireworks shows have been cancelled for this year with so many fires burning out of control around the state.
