Are you playing by the senior rules of 55 minutes and finish the inning plus one or just one hour?

Hey Southpaw, weather is looking great for your tournament. Hard to believe as cold as it was this morning, that in 2 days it will be close to 70 degrees. I'll definately take it.

Typical Alabama weather, Vance! Years ago, I was a mailman in a Bham suburb. At 6 a.m. it was snowing; ground beginning to be covered. My supervisor encouraged all of us to hurry, get what mail we could prepared for delivery. By 11 a.m. I was headed home. At 3 p.m. that afternoon it was 50+ degrees!!
Looking forward to a great day and meeting all of you. God bless and have a safe trip.

Just wanted to let everyone know that the park concession stand is excellent; not your typical burgers and hotdogs with condiments by the window. Turkey, ham, BLT, tuna salad, etc. and prices are very fair.
