Discussion: The 1 day Tourney Movement

Hello titanhd,

I should have been more clear in my response. The Columbus, IN qualifier (APR) is a 2 day, 4 game guaranteee tournament.

The ISA World Series (JUL) is also held in Columbus, IN. That is a 3 day, 5 game guarantee TOC qualifying tournament,

If I'm not mistaken, the only 3 day tournaments hosted by SSUSA are TOC qualifiers which offer a 5 game guarantee, draw teams from a larger geographic area and award larger prize pacakage.


You used Wilkes-Barre, Columbus and Tulsa as examples of tournaments that shouldn't be 3 days long.

Wilkes-Barre is 3 days long, but is hosted by another Association. SSUSA has nothing to do with it.

Columbus and Tulsa are hosted by SSUSA and are run over a shorter (2 day) period.

Curtis Wilson (aka "The Wolf") from the Suncoast Adidas 40s team won the HR derby on Friday afternoon. He's also a pretty good pitcher and umpire.

Dave Reed, who will turn 70 this year also had a nice showing in the HR derby. Very impressive!

Discussion: Expected Tentative Field Assignments for Winter Worlds Phoenix

The Winter National (FL) has used 3 complexes in the older age groups for at least the past 8 yrs. Park makeup and anticipated team numbers by age / rating are pretty similar from year to year.

That isn't necessarily the case with the Winter World (AZ). In fact, SSUSA had to pick up a 3rd park last year to cover increased demand for the older groups. This year, they are probably waiting until they get more accurate numbers before projecting field assignments.

They are in a lose - lose situation here. If SSUSA doesn't project parks 30 days in advance they are scrutinized. If SSUSA projects early, but inaccurately they are crucified.

Desert Breeze has 4 diamonds with dirt infields and turf outfields.

The tournament is a "GO" I was traveling back from Michigan today. The schedule is just about completed. I hope to have it in the hands of all coaches by 12pm on Tuesday. With 14 teams, I am looking to complete it all on SAT, using SUN as a rain make-up day.

Discussion: CT Senior Games schedule

Message to teams that are playing in the CT Masters Games this weekend. I've written the schedule (twice actually) but we have had changes to the list of confirmed entries. We're also getting last minute requests for late starts / early starts, etc..

I am re-writing it again today / tonight with in hopes of pleasing the majority. Coaches will receive an email from me when it is done. Calls to the Sacramento office WILL NOT expedite the re-schedule process.


For now, people can expect the first games of the day to begin at 8:00am on Saturday and last games beginning at 5:00pm. Sunday will look pretty similar.

18 teams on the weekend- 9 in the 50/55 division and 9 in the 60s division.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

Tim
