Huntsman Games
Just got back from the Huntsman Games in St. George UT. It was my 1st trip and I've heard a lot of good things about it over the years so I thought I would give it a try. My team didn't go so I hooked up with a team from AZ. I really enjoyed the experience and competition. Anyone who is a traditionalist would love it, no home run limits and no PPR. The fields at the Canyons are some of the best I've played on. The weather was great, 70s and 80s all week. The grounds crew watered and drug the fields between games, the staff had bananas, apples, oranges and water in every dugout for every game. A top notch run tournament. I know it's hard to take a weeks vacation to play in if you're still working, but if you get the chance, try it some year, you won't be disappointed.

Bruce, agree with most of what you said. Fields, weather and staff were fantastic. But playing 1-2 games a day and stretching the tournament out makes for a long week. Also way to many divisisions. In 55 we had Major, AAA, AA, A, B, C & D. 5 teams in each division. This is not a tournament its a round robin. We played one team 3 times and 2 others twice! Glad I did it once, I will not go again!

This was my 4th. year, I go because of the area, weather and field conditions. It is a very well run tournament. Normally the tournament is over by thu or friday morning. I also agree that they drug it out way to much and we all know why, to keep teams in town and spend money.

As far as to many divisions-- if you award prizes, in this case medals to alot of teams and instill a sense of winning players will want to come back IMO
