Thanks guys. It's starting to shape up. Hope all divisions get a few more teams signed up so there are real brackets instead of playing out of your own age and rating.

Didn't turn out bad, but weak in teams. So by this, you should be able to figure out who you'll be playing... Hopefully more than who took the time to post and no one pulls out to cause other problem for everyone.

Only two teams I'm not familiar with both out of Tx, Omen & Makules.
Should be some good games.

I read the post by DoubleL10 regarding the team as another Tx team. I am familiar with the Ca. Omen team.
Game On is listed under the 65's
Over all, it's pretty accurate for info posted. Lets just hope more teams are going that we don't know about.
You just never know until about a week before.
Hope to put many faces to ID's and emails.

Someone clarify this for me. Are the Sacremento Blues and the Sacremento Buds two different AA teams? When we have played them the last three years they have always been called the Blues. That's cool if Sacremento has two AA 65 teams.

A couple more 65 Major Plus teams would be sweet.
While I see there are only 15 in this select group, I think getting 5 to 6 teams if not more is realistic for one of the best T's put on during the year.
Ten days to go for entry deadline and thought I know there are teams I was told were going no post have been made on them.

I hope to see & meet many here.

I'm anxious to see what our competition will be. This is my first year with the Saints and we've been competitive in all of our tournaments so far. I think the only reason we got moved to AAA is that there are 4-5 new quality players.

Caveman,
Homework time....
Read the past Reno T's most do them every year just as most teams attend the same T's where ever they are.
Some are mentioned in the thread but many are not.
You are correct on the new players ( new rule as well) but it is also a wise move to get better.
A few others could learn by it.
How was your Lodi T for you other than the RO.

Taits,
The Lodi Tournament went well. Everyone seemed to enjoy it and the brackets were good. We did a bat raffle and collected enough to raffle two bats of each winners's choice, plus did a 50/50 raffle. We have 4 winery sponsors that pay most of the awards, so we still make a good profit for our organization.

Am surprised that AEGIS Spartans and NV Giants have not responded since NV advertises for it and the other I started the season with but left due to an injury and misunderstand on a roster issue. Hope they both come.

Have an inquiry from a M+ team looking for a PITCHER.
Must be East if the Mississippi.
If your a M= pitcher and your team isn;'t going post a note with contact info here or contact me, I'll forward it to them.
Their Pitcher needed knee replacement. Team still plans to attend.
Act fast on this.

There is a little confusion here, my fault. Our team is the one that needs a pitcher. We aren't going to Reno, just need a pitcher. Looks like we will be playing in Maryville, Dalton, Las Vegas, Jacksonville and maybe a couple of others.
Let me know.

Jd32, That's good news.

I just got word via email that the 65 AAA Masters Marauders out of BC Canada. will attend also.

With any luck as it were, the team count might go past last years total of 217 teams for the event.
The last 3 years have each been larger then the previous one. It only goes back to 2009 with that info 2008 is only winners info.

JLD930,
Making the 60 M+ bracket very good indeed.

I was told that Ed Rose's team is also attending but am not sure of age etc or team name I could not find "name" in ratings for 65 or 60... any help here again Bruce?
It's part the mess up I did earlier re pitcher.

Could use a couple more 65 M+ teams so no one plays out of their comfort zone having to play up\down ratings and ages. That sucks.

Updated chart again & LMK is I missed something here.
Still a few questionable teams, but knowing that many do not reply to emails and others just like their ‘privacy’, there will be more that are not listed.
Only 3 days to enter, so I think those who do not speak up are really hurting the overall scheme of things thinking rightly or incorrectly that there will be only a few teams or will play out of age\ratings arena. I personally do not like them but I do not mind playing better teams in order to learn from them.
Also hear from many that so & so team is coming but I needed info from the team or player on it, so there are many others not listed here unfortunately.
Games begin in a week\half. Good luck to all, hope to meet see again many of you.

Marauders of CA are going to Reno. 60 AAA

I added ' of CA' because I know there is one other Marauder team also attending,
Masters Marauders 65 AAA out of BC Canada.
And possibly another as well in the 60's. from Canada.

I have sent out 3 bulk emails (BCC) over the last few days seeking info, only about 8-10 were returned w\ info and a few invalid email addys.

Keep them coming.

With about 30 teams listed here and given that most do not use the board for posting I'd say only half or less are representatives of the number of teams that will actually be there.

The tough div age brackets to fill are the Major Plus areas but the 60's is looking pretty good. Hope there are some more 65 M+ teams coming that just didn't post.
Bikerton's post will give Omen at least a run, Not sure if the 70's M+ will need to play down as it were in that one.
Hoping for one or two more M+ teams there.

Still 2 days left to enter.....

Still today and tomorrow to enter this good event. I am hoping for full brackets in all divisions, so no one is 'forced' to play out of their age & ratings area either up or down.
Hope to see & meet many new people there. Will be there Mon-Thrs. Need to be back by Fri for sleep apnea problem. so seeing many in the 60's I wanted to will be a problem now.

An update of sorts; There are 'roughly 'over 130 teams entered in just the 60 & 65 divisions.
Count isn't exact (intentionally) but within a dozen or so with a day still to go, this could well be a record breaker for the Rock 'N Reno event.
Your teams make it what it is, congratulations.

Maybe that was one of the 'voices' I heard in Area 51... I doubt it though.

DALLAS SPURS 60-AAA will be there. ended up in 4th place after the smoke cleared. we lost the first bracket game, won 7 games in a row in the loser's bracket, then we were knocked out by our compadres from austin TANEL 360. it was a fantastic tournament, . the weather wasnt too bad, 30's and 40's in the early mornng games. good luck to all teams attending.

The Spartans AA 65 team is also on the list bet there was a name change it seems according to the list posted on teams attending.
Didn't quite break any record for attendance nor reach last years total team count, but still very good.
Those brackets less than full, are likely due to those needing to work and or the expense it will cause them. I can relate to the latter.
Still have the weekend to enter it.
I believe too many wait to see the complete list as shown to get a pretty good idea who they might will be matched up against. It should be fairly easy to do too reading the ratings. The trouble occurs imo, when you end up playing out of age\ratings when you entered.
In checking some teams I've played with in the past, I noticed many haven't been rated for years and some very recently.
Should be an excellent venue.
Stay healthy.
Looking forward to meeting many new and players from before.

taits, Reno CAN be cold (although not normallyóthe wind is usually more a problem than heat). But just last year, I was standing on third base at Golden Eagle, ready to dash home on the next hit, in my shorts and short sleeve uniform and it started to sleet!! I thought to myself: "What am I doing dressed like this in the middle of snow flurries?!" It didn't last long, but it was cold! But the next day was pleasant.
