TD. Tom Sorry, Fields at Little valley in St. G. (Last minute changes confuse me at times also.)

HSquared Little Valley parking question follow up.

About 100 parking spaces at the LV fields and about 40 across the street. As for the next door school, as long as players park close to the field (as mentioned before) and some openings furthest west from the school entrance, it should be OK. The field behind the school has always been off limits. Schools are scheduled to begin Aug. 13th. The use of this schools parking area has really helped in previous tournaments.

The two soccer fields across the street should be OK for BP I was told. City does not want anyone using the fenced in soccer field.

HUNTER Field #3

Other than the turf field means no temporary 300' fencing, haven't seen any info about the size of the whole field. Our player coach a couple of years back told us out fielders not to chase a gapper or over our heads shot. Just go get the ball and let the batter have the ITP HR. The fences are way out there. Both dugouts are far back from the field and the backstop has a separate zip code it's so far back from the plate. The catchers ability may become critical in a game.

The parking right at the complex might hold maybe 40-50 vehicles. Across the street is another lot for another 20 or so. Depending what teams do for late morning/afternoon BP before their first game, arriving at LV one game before yours is an option. With school possibly not starting until late August, parking at the school might be allowed. That location would easier handle the over flow. Looks like a visit might be in order.

For those RV folks out there, the dirt parking lot across from the Little Valley pickle ball courts is used quite often for RV's during the tournaments for that sport. A short walk across the fields to the SB fields and 9 miles from the canyons SB complex.
Your welcome.

Discussion at Lorenzi this morning is that the upcoming announcement MIGHT not be good for Mesquite. MAYBE St. G could handle those games after 5PM under the lights. Those younger players handle the lights better.

IF a POTENTIAL shutdown of NV forces USA to find another home for the Worlds, St. G SEEMS to be on a roll right now. With the Huntsman Games cancelled, they MIGHT be interested in some discussions.

Reason of changes don't bother me as long as I know the night before. Still use a pencil with an eraser. (I believe the only league playing on Tuesday is our O70/80 league on fields 6&7 at the Canyons which starts at 9AM. Interesting. Usually we shut down for tournaments. Might be another story behind the story.)

Time to re-check your schedules for 65 & 70 Men. There have been changes. Not sure about other age groups.

As Dave D. typed above ALLPRODude, "We will be issuing guidelines and procedures as we get closer to the event time." Carry a mask, keep it attached under your chin, and if any mask police approach, pull it up.

As mentioned earlier in this topic, the Canyons usually have coolers in each dugout. I personally don't use the coolers since too many people stick their bottle right up over the tube and they may end up leaving whatever they have had in their mouths. Last year, they started having bat racks for larger tournaments.

Also mentioned was the recent girls USA Preps tournament had the shaded bleachers just for the players and the other ones were left empty since the majority of fans were outside the fences from 1st base to 3rd base. Also, not all the various parks have space behind the OF fences. But, I imagine a senior tournament will not have as many fans as the teenagers have.

Canyons and Little Valley usually have their concessions up and running. Don't be surprised if you cannot use the open fields across from the LV complex. They've worked on them in recent years for more soccer pitches.

DD or other USA Staff. Will there be a posting explaining the guidelines for this tournament? Questions have begun to be asked about on field/off field expectations for C19 related matters. Haven't seen a topic about it. Thank you.

For the Huntsman Games athletes, a decision will be announced this Friday at 12 noon (MT). It looks like those folks from other countries have the year off do to quarantine requirements once you arrive.

For those not familiar with the Canyon Complex, there is room between fields and outside fields with no neighbor, to sit and watch the games. At the recent girls SB tournament (140 or so teams) family and friends, for the most part, were outside the fences but not in the stands. From the entrance to the fields, by 1st and 3rd base, they were all sitting down towards the outfield. Several fields have partial or full room behind the OF fences. Again, if driving, bring a patio umbrella or one of those fold up curved tents(?) with an opening to stay out of the sun. Not far from the Little Valley complex are 24(?) pickle ball courts. During the Huntsman Games, there are those athletes who park their RV on a fairly large dirt parking area. Might work for SB players. Derrick and his crew usually have water coolers in the dugouts and bat racks. But, if you're not comfortable with cooler water, BYO. Good luck.

Update. St. G/Mesquite (if used) are not requiring masks other than maybe the catcher. A team was given some false info that was used in the recent Salem, OR tournament. Back to your regularly scheduled program.

With wearing of the masks as a requirement at this tournament (OF's have to put them back on once leaving the OF), and only a few players allowed in the dugouts, if driving, you may want to bring a folding chair, or the ones that clip on a bench. Hopefully gators are acceptable and bring extra. They are easier to pull up and down and can be soaked with water as a bonus in the heat. Family that may be travelling might consider a beach umbrella that works well down the sidelines.
