Great Lakes Regional
I know this is the SSUSA board but I would like your guys opinion. We are playing in the SPA Great Lakes Tournament next weekend. We are playing 60 AAA with only 3 teams. We play 2 prelim games Friday then one more Prelim game Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon we play a SINGLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT. So if you lose the first game you will have only played 4 games in a 5 game minimum tournament. We are playing at Pacesetter Park in Sylavania, Ohio (a grear complex with 8 fields). Just wondering what you guys think of a single elimination tournament for a Regional (50 AAA with 6 teams is also a single elimination tournament).

I completely understand what you are saying, but with only two other teams there in your division how many times would you want to keep playing the same teams anyway?

The first thing I would do is verify your information with the tournament director.

As it stands now (I just called him and asked how they could say five game minimum and only give four games?): There are FOUR AAA 60's who will be playing THREE POOL and a double-elimination and SIX AA who will be playing three pool and a double-elimination.

There are 34 teams in the tournament and all will have five games minimum.

I would call SYLVANIA and verify you have the right schedule, because it looks like some changes may have been made since the one you first received.
