Nationals Logjam-LVSSA-HWSG-SSUSA
Why are these three tournaments scheduled back-to-back-to-back? Does anyone really think that players/teams can compete $$$ in all three of the tournaments? Again, we the players, are the ones that get stepped on. HWSG was always a great tournament to close out the year. LVSSA and SSUSA are cutting off their nose to spite their face. Spread them out so we can enjoy them all!

Hi Gumper. I looked at the schedules for each of the three groups and thought they did a pretty good job in not stepping on each other's toes with metal spikes. Last year LVSSA and SSUSA ran head-to-head in some age groups, which was a situation that didn't do either group the credit they deserve for putting on major tournaments with quality competition. This year looks a lot better! There are NO head-to-head conflicts in any of the age groups, so it seems a team can play in any or all of these toiurnaments if they have the time, the desire and the $$$ (as you put it). This year it's set up like this ...

It's my opinion that all three groups did a very sensible job in not preventing any team from playing when and where they want.
