Spring Worlds St. George
Dave and all the directors at The Canyon's Complex are to be commended on a very well run tournament. Additionally, in the 7 games we played there, the umpires were terrific and maybe the best we've had in a long time. Overall, a great time and a great tournament.

However, is it too soon and/or inappropriate at this time for SSUSA to address the rumors regarding this being the last tournament there? The ridiculous increase in fees for the fields - if true - are unbelievable! It would be a shame for this to be true as certainly St George and The Canyon's are one of our favorite places to play.

Thank you bond_171513 ... Your first paragraph is very kind ... The entire SSUSA team appreciates your observations on a community effort that worked out pretty well ...

Your second paragraph is, fortunately for all concerned, a complete work of fiction someone is blindly trying to sell you ... The rumor mill is thriving, as is the norm ... SSUSA C.E.O. Terry Hennessy and the Greater Zion Convention & Tourism Office reached an agreement in principal last week for St. George to be the primary host of the 2023 Spring World's in St. George, with secondary coverage in Mesquite, if needed ... This agreement includes SSUSA using more fields in the metropolitan area and should result in the inclusion of the Men's 40+ Masters division next year ... Don't believe everything (anything?) you hear around the ball parks on this ... There are a lot of things being presumed that have no basis in fact ... We'll see you in St. George about this time next year ...

Good to read DD. If Gubler will be used, the park guys are willing to put up the temporary fences if asked.

Glad to hear this. Dave, you mentioned to me when I checked in that you will be coming to the Rocky Mountain Championships this year for the first time. That was great to hear also. I was hoping to talk to you again on another suggestion but I never saw you again at Little Valley.

I note that you're doing more round robin brackets and I'm suggesting to consider doing even more of them. For instance, the 75 major/major+ bracket had four teams so we played each other in the round robin and then had a double elimination bracket. Instead, why not just do a double round robin and best record wins. Again, the major+ team, if there is one, would have to win to get the goodies for major+. That way when the schedule is released, every team, no matter where they finished, would know when they would be finished for planning purposes. Just a thought.
