TD is correct, people aren't going to pay for plane fare at the last minute but SSUSA is in a very tough position, trying to figure out what any west coast state will do!

Omar, We have not played at the Sacramento Complex, only Maidu Park, which IS horrible. It's about the drainage from watering, obviously not rain. A lot of the outfields have been under water the last couple of years. No cafe! Sounds like you have been playing at Golden Eagle and we've been playing in Carson City, making a comparison to Rock n Reno!

It would be great to get it out of Sacramento every year! Horrible fields, terrible drainage, no concessions and offensively hot!

Discussion: Catchers will wear a mask

Don't most catchers stand a few feet in back of the batter anyway? Does anyone squat anymore? Just make it a rule a catcher has to stand 6' back.

You guys got to play a tournament? Consider yourselves fortunate! Governor Dictator won't even let us practice! We do anyway!

We've had the police cruze through the parking lot numerous times and have never stopped either. We even had one come through when were in our circle enjoying a beverage after BP and just waved.

Six feet away from each other and 10 people or less, you should be okay for BP

We have a small group of guys taking BP too, with no problems. BP is an activity that is quite easy to stay 6 feet apart.

That is correct, all about politics, red vs blue! The dictators in Washington (state), Michigan, Oregon, and California need to go. I have heard they are playing games in Arizona, Florida and Georgia.

Discipline yourself not to touch your eyes, nose and mouth if you're using or touching things that others do during a game. Sanitize as often as you feel necessary. Simple.

I don't think you'll see many teams up here in Washington getting on the field anytime soon with our Milk Toast Governor we have to deal with.

Wow, just greats points by OZ and Webbie!

In other words ... "I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer! The future's uncertain and the end is always near!"

Discussion: Reno

Yes, the hotel prices in Reno have really gone up! Ridiculously high at the Sands ... they must think since they did some renovation, it's okay to gouge the prices! Last year as they had everything torn apart, they doubled the buffet price without improving the quality, which is very low!

One of the age old questions! You'll probably get that answer on May 1st, when the entry fee deadline is. Obviously we hope it's in Sparks!

Discussion: Why 2-day

Got to agree with one dogg, part of softball is hanging out in the parking lot between and after the day is done with your team and opponents/friends that stop by. Dave does everything for a reason in regard to scheduling and explains it well here on the message board. Playing 4-5 games in one day is not fun!

NCSSA has a great format and would be great for the SSUSA smaller local tournaments of 5-6 teams, which there are many. I'm sure everyone gets kind of tired of playing the same teams over and over again in their area and 3 games on Saturdays and 2 on Sunday is perfect, playing everyone one time. Whoever has the best record wins or if you have to have a championship game, the top 2 seeds play with the #1 seed being the automatic home team. Another thing about this format is that every game counts.

If your desire is to form a "highly competitive team" at the "highest level", wouldn't you want to play higher than AAA?

A possible solution would be to take away the ability of the Major+ teams to pickup players outside their bordering states. Major teams may be more willing to move up knowing that these teams cannot go out and pay players from anywhere (east/west) to play with them while most others cannot afford it.

If not, let the Major+ teams go with "unlimited everything" rules and have 4 team world tournaments like we had back in the day.
