50 Major Plus schedules making progress
I've been collecting the various schedules from the listed 50 major plus teams and attempting to share them with the folks I have contact with. I have schedules from the Mavericks, LAF, Goodman Racing, Gekle Builders and had one from Hollis (Audie I think you sent me something and lost it.) I have been in contact with Fredericks and Sweet Construction and should get those. I see Coors Light and Windy City from the mid west if your interested I think the other teams would love to see your schedules when you get them. Hopefully if the two other listed Florida teams might be interested in sharing their schedules and Damons there will be a couple of tounaments where turn out is decent. And if the major teams that might get moved share their schedules could be a good year.

Larry perhaps if you guys cut out half the expense involved in your infamous tailgating you might be able to afford to play in another tourney or two lol

Foothills I did at the beginning of the week, maybe it got stuck in his Spam filter. Dick Cunningham from the MTC 50 team gave me his email. I'll send him another one any chance you could tell him to be on the look out for my email.

Stick8, you know we can't do that. We'll make a few more, just waiting on the next drinking party a a a i mean team meeting to fill out our schedule which should be by mid March at the latest. We just had our local Sno(mud)-ball tourney last weekend. Now that makes all the muscles hurt, even some i didn't know i had. Main thing had a blast. Can't wait to see ya'll and play some ball in warm weather again. Lazer Larry

stick8, that could be a true statement. Every time the weather starts to warm up it goes in the toilet again. How much snow do you guys have on the ground, or have you seen the ground lately. I think my spring fever is getting worse every year. We're due to have a meeting in the next couple of weeks to decide the rest of the year. Indoor ball ain't bad but just not cutting it.

Larry where I'm at we had a warm stretch which pretty much melted all the snow that was piled up. We've had a dusting here and there but the possibility of another blast always looms for us in February.
I play myself once a week indoors and your right, it isn't the same. But being northerners what else can we do besides that and indoor cages? I've also been working out pretty heavily at the gym to get ready for the upcoming grind. Got to get in the best shape so I can hang with you guys in the parking lot!!
On the serious side I'm not sure anything can be done to prepare for those stifling hot, humid days of summer where you end up playing 4 or 5 games a day. It becomes more of an endurance test.

Ray I made contact with the Florida Sluggers hopefully we will get their schedule. I'm looking forward to see what this will bring, so far everyone I have spoken to has been very receptive. Hope to have something from Sweet Construction by the end of this month and something from Audie Hollis shortly also. Here's hoping that the teams that get moved here in the next several days see it as a pat on the back and decide to compete, instead of fighting it. Take it as a compliment that your in rare company and all your hard work paid off. Test those skills.

Got it Ray. I'll shoot him a call tomorrow. Did you see where they changed the date of the Midwest tourney. That is probably going to be bad for us. Sorry about that. Never say never though.

Joe I am not sure that this date for Midwest is right or not nobody from staff will respond to this question which I find to be very strange.Maybe they don't know yet?We may not go either if we don't get answer soon.Hope it works out for you guys.

Thanks Ray

Add ron@bobblebabes.com to your
50 Major Plus list.
He is the man behind the Ploog / Kevitt team from
Minnesota and is as interested as y'all
are about making sure that when you spend the money to go to a tournament
there are more than 4 major plus teams there.

Looking good on this end either myself or Ray from Gekle have been in contact with most everyone. Suspect we'll get the bulk of the remaining schedules from everyone here in the next few weeks. From conversations and the schedules thinking that there might be a number of well attended events this year. Hopefully the new teams will want to participate once the announcements are up. If myself or Ray missed anyone let us know.

Richard I sent you an email, I'll get something to you soon. Also if anyone is looking at this Evolution disbanded right after Phoenix last year that team is now the 55 Major Plus Nighthawks and 50 LAF.

I spoke to the guys from Fangrabbers and they are not planning to travel much they never have since I have known them maybe they can respond but I would only expect to see them in Phoenix at the end of the year. If anyone from the Texas Legends or Seven would care to share your schedule I'm sure it would be appreciated.

Lecak,
You're right, we at Fan Grabbers don't play alot of out of state. We don't have the big bucks like alot of other squads. Planned for Mesquite & Vegas only. Let you guys win your share that way. Good luck to all.
