UT & CA
Why is SSWC suppporting Utah?
Looking @ the teams that played in the Western Championship, there was a total of 63 & 4 teams from Utah.
CA State Championship had 60 teams the following week, with no Utah teams. In the World last year, there was only 1 team from Utah.
Western Championship needs to be moved to another state that supports this league & can draw more teams. Like CA or even Misquite when the 20(?) field complex is completed.

Jawood,
Actually it's a good point, but contractual agreements, for ever how long made, would no doubt kill it.
Who do you play for ?
Manteca (BLD) has a pretty good field of teams this year, Some mixed as expected, but looks good. You just never know until posted.

Jawood,
Good luck this weekend and if you see Art E. please tell him the same.

Doker,
On your way back did you have the time to check out the new Mesquite park being built? Just wondering about it...
