At the Louisiana State Championship to be held in April, we just finalized the registration forms, which will soon be up on the CFDA website.
This is Louisiana, after all, and we do things a little different down here. Hospitality for sure, and having fun is second nature. For our out-of-state visitors, we want them to absorb culture,, and the French language is a part of that culture. One thing they'll notice is a Lagniappe Match. What is a Lagniappe Match?
Well, Lagniappe has a special place in Cajun culture. Lagniappe has various meanings, depending on use, but it generally means "something extra". Lagniappe is important in Louisiana culture, it's a way of showing good will, of making sure that people are taken care of. Our Lagniappe match will fill a small hole in the schedule, give the folks an extra match to shoot in, a chance to warm up before the main match on Saturday. It's something extra, which is what Lagniappe is.
