No water in the dugouts for 65's!!!!!! (no concessions to purchase from either)
For an organization that supposedly watches out for seniors health and safety, you dropped the ball! There is no way you should schedule games for seniors without providing water. As a recovering cancer patient without working saliva grands, keeping my mouth moist and staying hydrated is vital to my health. There was water the 1st day, then I was told the jugs were stolen! Solution: buy more jugs.

Tournament was well run other than the water issue. Umpiring was good. Competition was superb. Congrats to Rusty's on beating us in the finals. Great group of guys..............

Two of the outfields on the original fields, haven't been mowed in quite some time, maybe months.....tuff on the outfielders. (Shadow Rock Complex)

Lastly, to Jim Sherman, hang in there. Looking to see you well and healthy later in the year.

Rob, I am in the same boat and always, always, always bring my own water. It is easy to do, and the only one ultimately responsible for taking care of me is me.

Water is cheap. I bring my own no matter where I'm playing.

When I play I alway bring my own insulated bottle of water. I have a hanger that just clips on the fence. I hate the water that most places furnish, always has tha hose pipe taste.

If it is not furnished the team used to keep a cooler in the dugout with bottled water in it. a case at Sams is only $4.59 and gives most everyone two bottles during the game and was always cold

Th coolers with the wheels on them was always easy to manage
