Home-Run Contest
I was wondering why there are no Home-run Contest at these big tournaments?

SPA had a hr contest at their nationals in Plano 4 or 5 years ago. I believe they also had one last year in Dalton at the AA and AAA nationals.
SSUSA should think about having one at their larger tournaments. They could donate the entry fees to charity.

Great idea Bruce.
I have a format that might be fun.
Each contestant hits, one after the other,
has to hit one to stay in the contest.
Single or double elimination.
Either way should be fun and shouldn't take too long.
One rep from each team
and everyone would have a chance.
Just might work?
Really consistent long ball guys
like Joe Lecak would have a chance with the huge hitters like the Bull,
John Kramer.
Hmmmmmmm.

maybe this would give them the idea.I am playing my first year and enjoying the senior tournaments,just wish there were more.Like Rockin Reno and the Title suggest music,I think a party on fri night would be fun where everyone met each other and maybe a rockin band played.

Just a base hitter?
Not hardly.
Great tournament and win in Reno
with Jerry, Junior, Shack and the boys.
Every time I watched
you were hitting bullets.
Will you guys be in Oakdale
next weekend?

HR contests are always fun to watch. They should have one for guys over 200 lbs and one for the smaller guys. Gives more folks a chance to show there guns.
Thanks:
