SOUTHERN CHAMPIONSHIPS
It's to late for this year,but what about holding this Tourney in April. The way its scheduled now its held on 3rd weekend of August. There are 3 reasons why I would like to see this moved. After we played in TOC last month there is no where within a 6 hour drive to play until May for teams in KY-IN area. Also the way the schedule is now the Northern C-ships is the last weekend of August and we could drive to both but like most teams don't like to play back to back weekends. And its hot as heck in AL in August normally high humidity and say late April should be warm enough in Birmingham.
What do you teams in the Southern state's think and SSUSA STAFF what are your thoughts?

Thanks monty,your right with it being a toss up with the weather. Last year in Phoenix we had record highs and last month at TOC record lows. I looked up average temp for Birmingham for April and its 74 & 48. In our part of country there are a lot of tourneys in June,July & Aug but very few early one's. I know there were not many teams in Birmingham last couple of years,combining divisions, age groups etc. Seems like there would be more teams show if it was in April or even May,because August is a very busy month. IMHO
