Dalton, Ga.SPA Worlds
Could someone please tell me, WHY, we have to play Thur,Friday,Sat and Sunday for the 55AAA ???? Even with 2-3 pool games, are we playing 1 game a day, or 2 on Friday? I can maybe see Friday start for 50s/55s..but Thursday for everyone??
Someone please, explain the reasoning for a 9am Thursday start for these age groups?

The Thursday night doesn't go to late in the evening because they have an opening night special events games, intro of the teams, all star games and IceCream social....

I just looked at there site and they did start playing at 10am on thursday last year. Alot of the teams dont want to play to late in the evening with the heat and humid condtions and the way the sun sets at this complex does make it tough some of the fields....

Hope this helps
