Question for TD's
Looking forward to the NCSSA Championships in Manteca this weekend (Norcal). Only problem is - the schedule isn't out yet, and a lot of players who live an hour away (or more) are still trying to figure out whether to drive home Saturday night or make lodging arrangements - all depends on the game schedule.

So my question is this: what is an acceptable "deadline" for posting tournament schedules? 3 days advance notice? One week? I know it's not an easy job to pull all this together, but some of us working stiffs need to plan ahead...

NCSSA's own rules state 7 days, however since Bobs departure, I can't think of any that meet that. Most are day before or if lucky like the thus\fri sched for it, it was about 4 days.
Person doing site has a day job, but who knows if info was even received to do.
They bend their own rules to suit themselves imo.
Suggest you call John Reedy, his number is on flyer I believe. I've had no luck communicating via email.

Pretty good time frame for it. If your there Fri look me up, am with the Bears.
Fri we play on Angle at 8 and 10:30, if on time.
It's always been one of the better T's available.

If you were placed at the Tracy complex you might be better off because of the heat factor on the astro turf.

real deal, taits has it right that the standard in the past was 7 days before a tournament for exactly the reasons you list. With Bob Strand's passing, things aren't always as prompt. I did email Reedy about the tournament and got a very prompt response.

taits, where were you when the Bears played in Hayward? Looked for you, but missed you. By the way, the astro turf only covers the infield, so outfield with natural grass is a bit cooler at Manteca. But this weekend, infield temps will be around 120.

I'm the TD from Lodi. My schedules were up two weeks ahead of time and I used the tool that Bob made to create and post my schedules. I do believe that any NCSSA can use it if they want. I know of only one that had problems and it was because his email address changed.

Caveman,
How are the 4 legged guys?
You and one other, I maybe 2, I believe, did do that. However it's rare.
Looked over your teams and thought about trying to go on one but another problem kept that out.
Looked good though.
Bod did to a lot of special projects, but not getting in the info timely to be posted is till the rule and it's not followed at all by most.
Hope it gets better, but person doing it has a day job.

Scott,
The 4 legged kids are doing well, spent the weekend at the park making friends with everyone. Slept all the following week! I usually enjoy running the Lodi tournaments, but this time it was particularly not enjoyable as some of our volunteers never showed up so I had to run around all morning getting stuff covered. Only one review, tournament was boring. Everyone say to go to ASA bats and balls, but if I did, nobody would come to our tournaments. How are your fur babies?
