Midland - The 2013 Byron Johnston Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament is under way in Midland.
Teams from all over the country are in town competing against our local teams.
Organizers say the 21-year tradition is getting harder to plan each year.
They say reserving hotel rooms is a struggle.
“It was harder this year to reserve hotel rooms,” John Elliott with the Lady Bulldog Booster Club said. “We’ve been working with hotels since the summer and negotiating prices. We plan for 16 teams plus their parents.”
The tournament lasts through this weekend.
Organizers say to ensure they have hotel rooms for all participants, they start planning earlier.
