Russell Rd. complex is also under City of Henderson maintenance. Those fields are every bit as good as Arroyo Grande.

Axe ... "The biggest draw to Vegas" in numbers plays where they fit ... It's all about games demand as measured against field availability and local league restrictions every year ... The entry fee for a 40-Major+ is identical to the one the 80-AAA team pays and nobody has a priority ... That being said, it was a good thing this year to be able to mix up the field assignments a bit ... Good luck!

Same answer for 50-AAA and 50-AA ... The tourney actually started last Friday ...

Yes they have. They are in final review mode now by the facility operators. Pending approval (likely Tuesday) they will be released, followed shortly thereafter by seeding/pool game schedules. Brackets will publish as UNDER CONSTRUCTION initially.

Yep, that's a bit of a different problem (with multiple posters here). The best analogy I can offer us that I feel like the guy trying to win the "smash the gophers with a mallet" game at the County Fair. It's rigged, I'm too old and slow and it's not possible to smack 'em all! This one is legit, though. Good luck in Vegas!

That's hilarious! ... But don't do the bank "deal" in Clark County ... You'll clog up the court system! ... Good luck!

JBTexas ... They got two of the best fields in all of Las Vegas, Shadow Rock #3-4 ... In excellent condition (always have been) and somewhat sheltered from breezy conditions ... If that's not acceptable, there's simply no pleazin' da man ...

When did he become "coachable' ... I've never seen that word in ANY of the mad dog descriptions I've heard or seen over the years!

FOFO ... It's either grass or it's dirt (still wondering why that makes a darn bit of difference!) GRINS

curveball ... When did they install grass infields at Lorenzi? ... They were dirt infields in April at the Southwest Championships ... Did you maybe mean Desert Breeze? ... Thanks!

Pay attention, coop! ... Tim McElroy gave an excellent review of Sunset Park about a week ago in response to a 40-Masters inquiry ... See if you can find it! ...

Discussion: Vegas Fields?

Thanks Ozone8 ... Much appreciate your understanding, and we'll likely re-visit again in the future ... This is a pretty large jig-saw puzzle every year and takes some time to fit all the pieces around local leagues and other restrictions ... And thanks for being an honest man! ... We believe the overwhelming percentage of "Where are we playingggggg?" inquiries have very little to do with hotel choices and a lot to do with curiosity on location, regardless of hotels ... With this being the 5th year in Las Vegas, our sense is that most people stay in the places they like and have before, as enhanced occasionally by where they have their "frequent player/loser" cards for reduce room rates! ... Good luck!

Ozone8 ... We are not publishing any field assignment "guesses" this year in advance of the release of DRAFT Game Schedules and Brackets ... This is largely due to an incident earlier this season when a municipality gave away our fields to another event (youth vs. adult priority, and we lost out) ... That unleashed a torrent of unfair, largely anonymous, criticism here, which is now easily avoided ... The difficulty in making these types of guesses is hard enough with the growth of this event, so we're just waiting until we "know" ...

Session #1 (Men's and Women's 40's and Senior 50+ Women) has been published, so those are firm ... It seems you may be in the Session #2 (Men's 55's and 60's) or #3 group (Men's 65+ and more senior) ... Session #2 (Men's 55's and 60's) had it's deadline Friday evening (09/02/16) ... The Session #3 entry deadline is tomorrow (09/06/16) ... It takes a couple days to tie down the entries, by rating group, and so far this weekend we have received "Whoa, we weren't on the preliminary team list but we're coming ... We already have our flights and hotels!" emails ... So, Session #2 should publish in the next few days and Session #3 hopefully by this coming weekend, both of which would be about two weeks ahead of session starts ...

If you are awaiting an announcement before making a hotel reservation, that's probably not the best course of action ... Most, if not all, of the host hotels have sold out for this year's championships ... We're not the only event in Las Vegas right now and demand for rooms has been unusually high ...

Discussion: Rating Changes for Vegas

Haven't seen any complete list and am in full schedule-prep mode for Las Vegas now, so I'll not likely be doing any looking ... Sessions #1 (Men's 40's and all Women) and #2 (Men's 55's and 60's) team lists for Las Vegas have been posted by age/rating, so you're good to go for those groups ... RATING pages would be where any other changes may have been made ... Look up the team(s) you're interested in and that;s where their current ratings will be ... You can sort the lists by "Date" to see when any changes might have been made ...
