Golden Eagle Complex in Sparks
I see where most of the 75's got aced out of playing at Golden Eagle. This makes 6 years in a row. I think we all pay the same entry fee.

LS, here are a few reasons why we oldsters get Shadow Mountain instead of Golden Eagle:

Golden Eagle fields are spacious. Outfielders don't have to run as much at SM.
They have artificial turf, so there are few bad hops. What fun is that? Boring.
They have a great view of mountains and open sky. Very distracting when you want to concentrate on the game.
They have an actual restaurant, while we can enjoy the hot dogs of our youth.
The vendors tend to be there and ignore SM. No temptation saves us money.
Headquarters is there, so disputes or questions can be resolved easily. We all know how geezers enjoy arguing.
The drive to GE goes through modern malls and shopping centers. We would miss Classic Reno.
SM is close to the Sands. Otherwise you'd be stuck with Atlantis, Peppermill, Grand Sierra, etc. Too new.
There is no chance of a broken windshield parking near GE. Lots of chances at SM. Don't we all want new glass?

Just a few reasons off the top of my head.
