This is the usual turnout for our local events here in WA. I know nearly
every manager personally and many of their players. I've played with or
against all of them for 8 years now. And it's a rec event, 2 days on a 4
field complex. What don't you understand? Probably 3 divisions, lots of
equalizers. I rate the teams top (40M=9) to bottom (65AA=3) arrange them in
order, group them in divisions, setup a round-robin schedule and let 'em go
at it, no useless trophys, just a damn good time at a great complex. We're
really just preparing each of the teams to travel and bring home titles.

Like the 2012 50M+ World Champions NW Legends
Like the 2012 60M World Champions W.E. Ruth Realty
Like the 2012 60AAA World Champions EnviroVac Marauders
Like the 2012 55AAA Western National Champions Jones Chemical Inc./The Y

Seems to be working...

Discussion: Other bats

So maybe the senior bats are as much about impatience as
anything? All the complaining about $ and lack of
durability, just buy a Worth or something similar and
be patient!!!

I picked up a Combat Pure last year for BP and NSA
league. Since I've never cracked or broken any bat,
including senior, it will likely last me into my 90's!

Discussion: Ambush Bat

I like the Ambush 27EL, been using it off and on for almost a year. Very solid
feel. Great line drive bat, and the ball comes off quick. Feels and looks
very durable. Used it first time this year last Wednesday, 45 degrees and
raining. Bought 10 last year when they came out and sold them around our area.

My go to bat has been the original senior grey Combat 27EL, have 2, may be nearly worn out. Have hit a few 310' in the right conditions, not a HR hitter.

Also have an Ultra II 27oz, swings light, when I need it, and a couple NSA
bats for another league.

I rewpect your opinion southernson and don't expect to
change it any time soon.

I do love the game and ask myself "how much?" each day. I
do, in fact, 25% sponsor a team, travel around WA and
to CA, NV, UT, CO & AZ with that team, pay for flights, gas,
hotel rooms, meals, slots, water, pop, beer (only for K's since I don't drink), etc.

Unlike a non-profit, I do profit, or at least earn wages
directing tournaments and umpiring, and that offsets most
of my softball expenses. I could not afford to travel as
much if I didn't.

I wish I had more details of the books of the big softball
organizations. Until I know for sure we're being "gouged",
I'll continue to defend them.

I don't have any specific details to defend SSUSA or the
price of this particular tournament, or any others for that
matter however there is this, referring to the "non-profit"
status. Imagine if SSUSA also had to make a profit for it's
owners, pay income tax and charge sales tax. Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think "profit" comes into play here.
Salaries - yes, per diem - yes, a few perks - maybe yes,
bonuses - maybe yes, profit - I don't think so:

Uh, directors and umpires that are well
rested and sharp after a good night's sleep
in a comfortable room.

Uh, directors that love the game, because
they certainly are not getting rich doing
this.

Uh, decent umpires who love the game, who
pay their own expenses to get to Las Vegas,
pay for their own meals, etc., and who also
are not getting rich.

Uh, decent playfields that are usually not free.

Uh, all that Las Vegas has to offer.
Of course you're there to play softball but
you have some free time to kill in a great
location. Almost like a free vacation
beyond the softball.

Uh, time away from the everyday, whether
that's work OR retirement.

I think I could go on and on...

Discussion: Bases @ 70'

And by the way, our Road to Las Vegas event
this weekend went really well. Almost no
comments on the 70' basepaths. If you
really think about it you will notice the
difference. At full speed, maybe one extra
stride or a bit more. I've noticed with the 65' bases I usually "stutter step" at the
bag to avoid the long, slow, last stride.
Didn't seem to be necessary with the 70'
base path. Could just be my imagination. I
was a bit distracted all weekend.

Not sure the impact on infielders except a
bit more time to make plays. The 5' is 7.7%
added to 65', but since you reach top speed
way before, maybe it adds 5% to your time to reach the bag. That's not much.

This is not a criticism, just a somewhat
biased observation. The key terms in the
official explanation that jump out at me:

City of

declined
declined

non-negotiable

Like I said, I'm biased...

Concessions are being made and nothing

good...
