SESSION #2 FOURTH REVISION Same story, different division ... Forecast-panic has claimed another victim, this time in the 65-Major division (Scrap Iron High Octane) at The Canyons Complex ... Changes impacted the combined 65/70-Platinum group and included collateral damage in the Men's 65-AAA seeding and bracket play for both Tuesday and Wednesday ... All of the revisions have been posted ... Good luck!

SESSION #2 ADDITIONAL 70's TEAMS FORFEIT OUT Two of the three remaining 70-AA teams (Scrap Iron Diamonds and Top Gun Olde Dawgs) have forfeited out of the tournament on Saturday ... They caused the collapse of the former 70-AA division ... The Git-R-Done 70 team was merged into a new six-team 65/70-AA division ... Changes affected both The Fields at Little Valley and the Canyons Complex and those revisions are available now online ... As before, we apologize on behalf of the forfeiting teams for the major inconveniences, despite the fact they are completely outside of either our causation or control ... Good luck!

UNRELATED NOTE In the Session #3 Men's 50+ division, there was a team initiated roster composition rating change that resulted in a team being moved from AAA to Major ... That change as been posted ...

SESSION #2 MAJOR REVISION Due to the late withdrawals of two teams (Duke City Dynamite 70-AA and General Equipment 80-Major+) significant changes were required at The Fields at Little Valley for Session #2 ... The Duke City withdrawal reduced that division from four to three teams and affected The Canyons on Sunday, too ... The General Equipment withdrawal casused the collapse and elimination of the 75/80-Platinum division, forced the 75-Major+ championship to expand to a Best 3 of 5 Championship Series and resulted in the replacement of the 75/80-Platinum bracket with a 75/80-Major Best 2 of 3 Series ... We apologize for the inconveniences, despite the fact that they were completely outside of our causation or control ... All changes are now online ... Good luck to all! ...

Here's the actual Rule Book provision on point (at page 56) ... Historically, it's been an effective method for adverse weather recovery ...
__________

SECTION 10 - ADVERSE WEATHER
10.1(1) TOURNAMENT PLAYED OR MODIFIED


SSWC qualifiers and World Masters Championships may be played in adverse weather conditions, much like a football game. Teams accept these conditions when entering. If it becomes necessary in the judgment of the tournament committee, playing procedures may be modified. If game times must be reduced because of time limitations due to inclement weather, or other acts of God, the following methods may be implemented, in priority order:
A. Games may be reduced to five innings, with the 5th inning being the open inning. A game reduced to five innings becomes official only after the completion of five innings, or 4 innings with the home team ahead....

Your team manager (if that's not you) fills that out online ... If you're the manager, please call Sacramento Office at (916) 326.5303 and ask for a roster department person ... They'll be happy to help you through it ...

Entries are pushing up to the tournament record of 55 teams in 2021 ... The 60-Major division is a free-standing division that won't require merging with other teams ... Team list will be released late Wednesday ... Good luck!

BANDITOS180 ... We look at it more like you have 3 months to plan, so here's a simple alternative for your consideration ... Book a hotel room in an acceptable nearby place for both venues, and when the TENTATIVE Field Assignments are released, cancel the one you don't need ... Lots of people do this ...

AJC You're correct that the ONLY Thursday starts are in the World's for teams under age 60+ ... And on topic, here are the number of teams who WILL be out at 0-2 in a 4-game-guarantee bracket for divisions between 4 and 20 teams ... NOTE: "Bye" teams can get their bye, then fail to protect themself and lose two, but winning just ONE bracket game converts a 4-Game-Guarantee to a 5-Game-Guarantee for your team ... That's on the team ...

Noted. There will be a contract Tournament Director on site who will listen and report back. Assuming this is an annual T.O.C. qualifier, it should be a 5-games format in 2024.

The Aloha Bowl (Hawaii), Spring Worlds (Mesquite/St. George/Bullhead City) and Spring Nationals (Polk County) are all going to be 4-games minimum scheduled events at their originally posted entry fees ... At this late time, and with the number of teams who have already paid the lesser rates, it didn't seem fair to ask them to pay more ... The 5-games minimum scheduled events will commence with the Tidewater Classic in Virginia Beach, VA, in late March ...
