Discussion: Nice job getting scores from NE Championships posted!

JBTexas ... Are you referring to the age 65+ and more senior groups that began play this morning (Monday) and will conclude this coming Wednesday afternoon? ... My crystal ball is sometimes pretty good, but not that good!

birdie ... Don't confuse the Seed #'s on the bracket with the Team #'s on the front page, they are unrelated ... The reason only seven teams are on the bracket is because only seven teams remain after the Metro Hitmen (NJ) dropped out ... The bracket was to be filled by a blind draw at this afternoon's manager meeting, so your team could be in any of those bracket seed spots ... Good luck!

Corky ... It was a "perfect storm" this time (and NOT the kind we have become accustomed to at Indy!) ... I was on-site at a single-facility tournament, meaning I didn't have to rely on called in scores or raw data sheets from other locations ... I had an outstanding co-director in Nancy Keaton (thanks again, Nancy!) to free up some time for data entry ... And I was in the Eastern time zone with my body-clock screaming "Pacific Time!" every night, so I stayed up later than normal ... That allowed me to stay out front a bit ... Right now Reno is the top priority, then I'll get to the Southwest scores ... Also, was good to see you again this year at the tourney! ...

Phillip ... Possibly sometime in the next week or so ... Just got off the plane from Indy to wrap up a 16-day road trip ... I went to Indy directly from Las Vegas and the scoring data came straight back to Sacramento ... First up is the Atlantic Coast (Loudoun County, VA) scheduling then I should have some time to get to the Southwest ...

Discussion: Game Time Notifications

The Session #3 schedules for the Brickyard Invitational will be posted sometime later this (Wednesday) evening/night ... It's a very complicated schedule due to there being 40 teams playing at the Midwest Sports Complex over only two days ... But I can tell you this much: Game times will start at 7:30 AM on Saturday morning and the last scheduled games will be at 10:30 PM ... Sunday games will begn at 7:30 AM, with most Championship games at 3:00 PM and "If" games at 4:30 PM ...

I sure miss the "good old days", when schedules were distributed at the Manager Meeting (where everyone actually had to show up) on the night before play commenced! [grins]

The info about Las Vegas is correct ... Am working as a Field Director there ... I'll write/post the Session # 1 (Ages 65+ and more senior) in the next couple days ... The 60+ (Friday Sat) has a pretty good chance by Monday, too ... Weekend is likely/hopeful for Tuesday ...

Session #2 DRAFT schedule and brackets will be posted here sometime between now and 4:30 AM on Monday, April 21st ... Just for accuracy, the Session #1 set made its initial appearance here on Wednesday, April 16th (the Rev. Date on each page)

Discussion: Las Vegas Field Assignments

SweetP ... We performed on our promise to not have you at the same facility for this year's Southwest Championships ... The 60-Majors played at Big League Dreams all three days last year during the 2013 Southwest Championships, as did the 60-Major+ and 60-AAA (two of three days) ...

Of the teams assigned to BLD later this month, the 40-Major+, 50-AAA and 55-Major did not play at BLD in either Las Vegas tournament last year, and the 50/55-AA there only for Championship Sunday of last year's World Masters ... It was actually more about the mathematics of fields vs. teams/games/league restrictions that led to this year's assignments at BLD ... But it WAS a bonus that the assigned teams were the ones who had gone the longest since their last appearance at BLD ... Seems like a very fair arrangement from our perspective ...

Discussion: Has anybody seen CERCE?

I think you have this a little bit wrong, Rich ... He signed with the New York Mets, not the Red Sox, about 29 years ago ... CERCE is just his user name here ... His real name is Sidd Finch! ... (Note to 40-Masters youngsters: Google that name and read the Sports Illustrated article)

Hey Rich ... Your post is about nine hours behind the curve! ... The results and scores were posted at noon Left Coast time on Tuesday ... Which "ain't all that bad" for having traveled back from Florida all day Monday ... But heck, it's probably not as silly as #19 asking for results nine hours before the tournament ended! ... [grins]

The "rollover" was just my front tire over the laptop at 1 MPH! Just a classically negligent move on my part.

I need a "Timex" brand laptop that can survive an SUV rollover. Take a licking and keep on ticking

Not yet, since I crushed my laptop at 4:15 AM on Monday morning at the office parking lot before heading to the airport! Yep, I'm THAT guy this time. New laptop delivered in Florida, but going to be a few days before data is restored to new laptop and back running again. Ughhhhh!

db14 ... That depends on the color of the apples! Green apples entitle Johnny to breeze right thru any stop lights along the way. Red apples require Johnny to stay and wait for the light to change. [grins]
