Discussion: LVSSA/SSUSA WORLD MASTERS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2016 DRAFT Game Schedules & Brackets

DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets for SESSION #4 (Men's 50+ division) of the 2016 LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Championships in Las Vegas have been posted and are available from the links below and on the event's Tournament Page ... The caveats mentioned above for Sessions #1, #2 and #3 apply here as well ...

BRACKETS NOTE: In order to get the seeding game pool play schedules out as early as possible, the DRAFT Brackets for the 50-Major and the 50-AAA will show as ** UNDER CONSTRUCTION ** until they are completed ... There is no need to call the SSUSA Office to ask where the Brackets are! ... When they are done, they will appear like magic in the schedule files!

The Participating Teams List and the Master Games & Fields Grid for the session have also been posted ... Good luck to all!

TENTATIVE FIELD ASSIGNMENTS SESSION #4

50-MAJOR PLUS Arroyo Grande
50-MAJOR Lorenzi Park & Shadow Rock Friday/Saturday & Big League Dreams Sunday (Brackets commence Friday evening)
50-AAA Big League Dreams & Sunset Park Friday/Saturday - Seeding pods playing at BLD Friday are at Sunset Saturday, and vice versa ... Overflow games on Friday morning at Desert Breeze & Cheyenne Park (3 rounds of games at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 AM - Brackets commence at 2:00 PM at BLD and Sunset)
50-AA Russell Road Friday & Arroyo Grande Saturday/Sunday

FIELDS NOTE: The 50-AAA have never played a significant schedule at Big League Dreams (there was a quick cameo appearance for 17 seeding games early on Friday morning in 2012) since the World Masters Championships returned to Las Vegas. We were able to accommodate them at BLD this year because the 40-Masters Women and 50+ Senior Women played last weekend rather than making their usual schedule appearance with the 50+ Men ... Good luck everyone!

Discussion: Vegas Bat Display

Miken has named Team 1 Sports as their official (and only) authorized representative at this year's World Masters. Team 1 Sports is authorized to sell only at the Big League Dreams Vendor Fair. Suncoast Sports (Lee Trotter) is identically situated as the authorized representative for Adidas, selling their products only at BLD. These two vendors are acting in their official capacity as the sole representatives of SSUSA National Sponsors in Las Vegas. They are not violating any posting guidelines for this forum.

If there are others you are concerned about, call the office Monday and we can talk. Again, non-authorized self proclaimed bat "representatives" and "dealers" are advised: DO NOT BRING A TRUNK LOAD OF BATS TO SELL ON THE SIDE at any of the playing sites for this year's tournament. There is additional information on this in the "Vendors" thread.

Hail Ragna! ... You WILL be able to buy bats at the World Masters Championships from ANY of the National Bat Manufacturer/Sponsors ... They will all be setting up their display/sales booths at the Vendor Fair at Big League Dreams ... Bat sales at other playing sites are NOT AUTHORIZED outside of BLD by anyone, specifically the (seemingly) dozens of bat "representatives" or "dealers" selling from the trunk of their car or back of their pickup truck ...

This policy is to protect the economic interests of our Sponsor Vendors at BLD and, hopefully, to eliminate the prior years' problem of sales by individuals who are unlicensed, non-permitted by the municipalities and lacking a Nevada Sales & Use Tax License and account ... At the risk of being cited and creating the possibility of adversely affecting your eligibility as a player in the tournament: DO NO BRING A TRUNK FULL OF BATS TO SELL ON THE SIDE IN LAS VEGAS ... We will be aggressively enforcing this policy and cooperating with the municipal authorities in their enforcement activities ... Thank you!

curveball ... You may be thinking of the absence of a Personal Income Tax in Nevada (there is none) ... We file quarterly sales tax returns based on an 8.15% sales tax rate in Clark County ... The other part of it, which isn't technically a "tax", is the cost of permits to sell, a Nevada State Business License and a myriad of other red tape items ... Both the City of Las Vegas and Clark County assessed us for unlicensed vendors last year ... We are stepping out of the middle, especially the payment obligation, this year and will be supporting any and all enforcement actions by the authorities ... Save us an inconvenience and yourself an embarrassing economic detriment: DO NOT BRING A TRUNK FULL OF BATS TO SELL ON THE SIDE at the 2016 World Masters Championships ...

Discussion: Vendors

All National Sponsors have been invited to the 2016 World Masters Championships and attendance is expected to be excellent. There will be a "Vendor Fair" every day of the Tournament at Big League Dreams, where vendor specific merchandise, including bats, will be available. Vendors have also been invited to attend and sell at all four Manager Meetings at Boulder Station the evening before play commences.

Elite Sports and Tournament Sports (the event specific apparel vendor) will also be at many, if not all, other locations, selling only their respective product lines of merchandise. NOTE Bat sales are restricted to Big League Dreams ONLY. Bat "representatives" or independent "dealers" are specifically prohibited from selling bats at the parks. Do NOT bring bats for sale to Las Vegas. This is a Nevada and Las Vegas permitting and taxation issue that will be aggressively enforced by Directors, Park Rangers and City and County enforcement personnel. Thank you!

You may call the Sacramento Office and order them ... If your inquiry is regarding the upcoming World Masters Championships, the only "The Rock" softballs permitted must be purchased on site at the tournament ... A few years back, there was some controversy over which "flavor" of The Rock was being introduced into play ... To avoid a re-occurrence of that problem, ONLY softballs purchased on-site are permitted ... Good luck!

STL0 ... It's about responsible free speech here ... The other thread was closed because it had devolved into an excessive number of disparaging comments directed at individuals ... And it had very little to do with the best interests of Senior Softball ... No problem with this revival, but let's play nicely this time ...

Too many games, from a health and safety perspective, to play the format over three days with some of this age group ... Four days is wiser and makes more sense ... Good luck!
