Guess my question from a couple days ago just got answered. The tournament page shows the Southwest Championships in Vegas at the end of the month cancelled!

Bigger question for me is, what about the LVSSA/SSUSA Southwest Championships in Vegas at the end of the month? I trust SSUSA will find a place for us to place and Dave will work his voodoo and we will get the Western Nationals in for all age groups. I, unfortunately, do not have the same feeling for the upcoming SW Champs! Nevada Governor Sisolak will never allow it to happen! Maybe St. George will welcome us back 2 weeks after the Western Champs!

Dave, you should know by know that no matter what you do people are going to complain about it! You could give them 9 out of 10 things they ask for and they would still say something!

I hate to be that guy, but that being said, I am gonna be that guy! Sorry in advance Dave, but any idea when the schedule for session #2 will be out?

I am sure the changes in the Session #1 teams did not help getting session #2 complete.

Thanks!!!!!

The Nevada governor, yesterday stated and I quote "a new directive is expected shortly to extend the current restrictions". Those restrictions include no gatherings of over 50 people, restrictions on team sports such as baseball and softball.

How are we expected to play in Mesquite in 2 weeks? Especially given that Clark county, where Mesquite is located, is probably going to be the last county the gov. allows to be back to business as usual.

Just my thoughts......

I am surprised to see that we are playing in Mesquite. Nevada has not moved into phase 3, and are governor is threatening to move us back!

Discussion: Prescott

The state has given the city and county the power to make that decision.

"Under the latest order, the state's Department of Liquor Licenses and Control will suspend special event and festival licenses, although a city or county would be allowed to approve a large gathering, if social distancing and other safety guidelines are followed."

With the Arizona shutdown there is still this piece of the governors order that will allow a city or county to decide for themselves.

"Under the latest order, the state's Department of Liquor Licenses and Control will suspend special event and festival licenses, although a city or county would be allowed to approve a large gathering, if social distancing and other safety guidelines are followed."

Hopefully this means that Prescott will not get cancelled!

Forget Reno, our esteemed governor has extended Phase II through the end of July. So gatherings like softball will be limited to 50 people or less.

Making the tournament "more centrally located for all teams to participate" sounds great, but then we should just play every tourney in St Louis then. I think the effort should be to make the tournament as convenient and as close to the original location as humanly possible. Colorado is neither, Reno is both. That being said, we are not playing in Sacramento this year, but if it was moved to Reno we probably would, and we are already playing in Aurora. combining the two reduces revenue but more importantly, it reduces the chances teams have to earn a berth in the TOC. I also think Reno would welcome the revenue that comes with the tournament.

Play it in Reno, cooler temps and is only a 2 hour drive from the original location.

It was just great to be back on the field playing in competitive games again! The Yuma facility was great, cannot wait for the trees to grow and provide some shade! I would love to see that park a part of the regular schedule, just a a different time of the year. To say it was hot out there would be a gross understatement. Overall, a great weekend and a great tournament!

Discussion: Catchers will wear a mask

Masks limit healthly people being infected by the sick, if the sick are wearing a mask. Healthy people wearing a mask serves no purpose, and the good Dr, who many people like you Dbax, who are also afraid to leave their houses, have said everything he says is gospel! But, I guess science and the good Dr's statements being good enough is selective.

Didn't Dr Fauci(sic) recently state that masks do not really do anything in the way of prevention???

It would be nice to be home on Sunday for fathers day! With the low number of teams I think it could be accomplished, but then again I am not the guy trying to work out the schedule!

I have read a few articles about the rise in COVID cases in the Yuma area, and what is important to look at is not just the number of positive cases (which is all the media shows because they want to scare you), but look at the number of tests being conducted. The rise in cases is in direct correlation to the Yuma area hitting all time highs each day in the number of people being tested.

Why not just buy the actual SSUSA softball at evilsports.com They are like $49 a dozen and they are the same thing you will be hitting in games.

Dbax, Yuma is a horrible prospect for me in that there is no easy way to get there for me, it is a much longer drive than Hemet. It is nothing to do with the city or the facilities!
