Discussion: ROCK 'n RENO CHALLENGE CUP 2013 •DRAFT Game Schedules & Brackets

GOLDEN EAGLE • FIELD NUMBERS • We just learned (3:00 PM Wednesday 5/22/13) that the City of Sparks Public Safety people, Fire and Police, have required that the Golden Eagle Softball Complex field numbers be re-numbered for ease of identification and efficient access in the event of an emergency ... All of the Rock 'n Reno schedule sets, manager programs and related paperwork reflects the old numbers and have already gone to press ...

Here are the new numbers ...

*OLD* = *NEW*
Field 1 = Field 10
Field 2 = Field 11
Field 3 = Field 12
Field 4 = Field 13
Field 5 = Field 14
Field 6 = Field 15

For the more observant of you reading this, you have probably already figured out to just add "9" to the old Field numbers on the schedules to get the correct new Field numbers! ... Good luck everyone!

MAJOR REVISION - P. BOLEN PARK SESSION #2 • Due to the Wednesday withdrawal of Connecticut Sportsplex in the 55-Platinum division, extensive revisions were required to the schedules of the teams playing there ... Most affected were the 55-Platinum (complete revision from 8 to 7 teams) and the 50-Major, with EARLIER game times than as originally published ... There were nominal changes to the 60-Platinum division as well ... We apologize for any inconveniences caused by circumstances completely outside of our control ...

Revisions are online now, but please check the Bracket Boards at the park ... Any versions dated earlier than 05/15/13 are obsolete and the schedules in the printed program are no longer accurate ... Good luck everyone!

Thank you for the constructive criticism ... Among the options that teams may wish to consider for upcoming Brickyard Invitational tournaments include the following:

• Consent to play a 2½ or 3 day schedule commencing on Friday afternoon to relieve some of the field pressure in a compressed (this year) weekend only format with 38 teams in seven divisions; and

• Staying in the Winners Bracket longer, where the days are shorter by definition and Elimination Bracket games appear later in the day or evening ... Potential late(r) games were apparent well in advance in the pre-published schedule.

This year's event WAS a long and tight schedule, and it's a tremendous tribute to the teams, umpires and Midwest Grounds Crew that we were able to stay essentially on-time during what seemed to be constant rain throughout the weekend ... Thanks to everyone who participated!

SESSION #2 REVISION • PHILLIP BOLEN PARK • There have been revisions to reflect the addition of one more team in the Men's 50-Major Division (Northeast Storm Softball) ... There will be one added game on Friday ... The Saturday schedule has very nominal changes, only affecting elimination conditional "IF" games late in the day in the 55-Major and 60-Major Divisions ... The Sunday schedule remains unchanged ... Changes are available now online with a revision date of 05/09/2013 ... Good Luck all!
