Westerns in Mesquite?
My 80s team (Git-R-Done) will be in Mesquite. Will there be any other 80s or 75s?

Scrap Iron Gray Berets 80's will be there but we are planning on all games in St George. Not Mesquite, that's the info we have. Hope there are lots of teams, everyone wanting to play... sounds like this one is a Go!!!!!

Mike ... It's highly unlikely there will be enough teams in Session #1 (65+ and more senior ages) to result an overflow situation causing your team playing in Mesquite ... I would plan on St. George, UT, for all Session #1 teams ... Good luck! ...

Dave. Just to confirm - my 80s should plan on playing in St George and not Mesquite?

YES ... Mesquite being used as an "overflow" site would require somewhere in the order of magnitude of 75 teams for SESSION #1 ... That's unlikely in our view based on historical precedent ...

Hi Don and Mike
Glad to see your both gonna be here in warm Saint George
for the Western National tournament in Aug.
Remember the weather here that time of year is a lot warmer
then in Oct. when you are usually here for Huntsman.
The weather in SG is a few degrees cooler than Mesquite and
also in my opinion the fields you'll be playing on are much
better than in Mesquite.
The Hunter Park in Mesquite has astro turf and with the heat
it would melt the soles on your shoes. All our complexes here
are dirt grass and as you know are very well maintained.
You and all your teammates have safe travels and looking forward
to seeing you.

Hi Mike. Really looking forward to this tourney. It will be our first this year. Our Denver Senior league has not started either so I have only hit twice. Ron and I hope to hit two more times before the tourney. Hope all is well with you in St George. Are you playing or umping???? Don. Wyo 22

Will the games for the older groups be early ones? It looks as if it will be quite hot in St. George during the tournament.

Bob S. ... We anticipate a fairly "normal" scheduling format for the Western National's ... The mid-term "Hi/Lo" temperature forecast (via accuweather.com) as of 10:45 AM on 07/16/2020 for the dates of the tournament is quite similar to what's been the historical experience in Sacramento/Placer Counties in recent years ... The rumor mill is cranked up on this one for some reason, but there doesn't appear to be cause for alarm if this forecast holds ... Good luck!

Glad to see your still playing.
As far as myself the local 80 team (Magic Stuff) ask my to play with them
I'm not sure if I'll be in town at that time.
I had some problems from a June of 2019 until just recently, too many
to explain in writing. It lasted for almost 13 months but I'm back now.
Say hello to Joy, Ron & Juanita for me.
Stay safe and have a great tournament.

Dave, The 137 team count for all divisions seems to make St George the clear winner over Mesquite for the 80s. Correct?

Mike ... It's really easy math! ... In order for us to need to use the "overflow capacity" in Mesquite fields, the SESSION #1 (ages 65+ and more senior ONLY) team count would have to be somewhere in excess of 75 teams ... That's not a realistic expectation since there are only 39 teams in that age group enrolled thus far ... You're halfway there on the count, but not a realistic forecast to double up in the next week or so ... It's going to be St. George for your games as a 99.3% probability ...

Very glad to hear it's St. George. A wonderful venue with beautiful scenery. The Canyons Complex is particularly nice. I hope priority will be given to using those fields.

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.

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.
