Discussion: High tourney entry fees and weak prizes...

Let's wake up, boys. These associations are put together for one reason: profit maximization at the expense of those who participate in and underwrite their tournaments. Losing discipline regarding the dispensing of awards/prizes and the like is not economically beneficial to their business plan. What do you think, maddog?

Anyone out there have any input as to what 60AAA teams might be participating?

Discussion: Dalton 60AAA

Continue to wait 3 days prior to tournament commencement for teams and schedules to be announced. What is the problem with this operation that, year after year, they consistently wait until the 11th hour to make this information known? They need to take a lesson from SSUSA who has been very good in this regard.

Discussion: Fielder's Mits

Would be interested in hearing from those more experienced than myself in the art of fielder's mit acquisition. Looking to find out what the best choice(s) is(are) for one who plays the infield. Currently using a Mizuno 12-14 unch. I'm thinking the latter, though functional, could be improved upon.

Discussion: Dalton Nationals (9/10-9/13)

Once again, unlike SSUSA which does a very good job of providing advance notice of teams, brackets, schedules, etc., SPA is waiting until the very last possible moment to make the Dalton information available to those who expend considerable resources in order to participate. Can someone tell me why? Am I the only that sees this? Is disclosure of this information too much to ask? Going to the source is an effort in futility. It would be intersting just to see who is coming in.

Discussion: Accepted Teams List

Curveball: One step ahead of you. Emailed SPA before I decided to post. Do I expect a reply, probably not in this lifetime. Give them a call, someone's got to be kidding( do they really have phones?). In total agreement that SSUSA, on the contrary, is very good about letting people know who's in and who's not.

Taits: As far as putting on a tournament relative to SPA involvement, a once bulbis learning curve should now be nothing but a mere hump in the road as long as they've been at it. Certainly they've learned something from repetition.

Discussion: Accepted Teams List

Can someone explain why, after the official entry cut off date, SPA will not publish a list of accepted teams to their "Ring Tournaments" so people will get an idea of just what they're going to be up against? Seems like they want to continually keep you in suspense up until the 11th hour. Maybe it's too labor intensive, I don't know. Hopefully, someone can enlighten me.
