Gametimes for this weekend’s Fall World Series set for Greensboro and Oak Ridge NC are NOW POSTED. I need ALL coaches to VERIFY to me by Thursday at 7pm that they have received their times. I also remind teams that there is a NO SMOKING policy at both of these parks and at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro, no pets are allowed. These policies WILL BE ENFORCED by the parks. Please plan accordingly.
I wanted coaches to know that I am having issues with my voicemail and calls on my phone. I am getting it worked on today. Please email me if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call Kristie at 336.932.5876 or Larry at 336.932.2979.
I have had a team drop out in HS age for this weekend. I will try to fill that spot until Noon today then begin to work on schedule. Gametimes for Fall World Series at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC and Oak Ridge NC will be posted by 6pm this evening.
I wanted to remind everyone that Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC does NOT allow pets or smoking. I know many parks may post a policy on both of these yet not really enforce either. I am letting everyone know now that Carolyn Allen DOES enforce both and will ask me to handle it the 1st time. The 2nd time, they will get involved and I do not want it to get to that point. Please plan accordingly. Thanks Tim
We have had teams drop tonight for Dublin VA tourney set for this Saturday, Sept 20. I am now CANCELING that tourney. I am sorry for the teams that still wanted to play but we do not have enough to play this tourney. I will be in touch with teams in the morning but I needed to post this tonight. We now have 1 spot open in HS for this weekend at Oak Ridge. Please let me know if your team would like that spot. Thanks Tim
I wanted to provide an update to some of our tourneys that are not full in October. We can still take teams in ALL ages for October 4th in our 1 Day “Border Wars” tournament. That will be played in Eden NC and Walnut Cove NC. We are FULL for “Paint it Pink 2″ for October 11-12. We still have 2 openings in 1ou for our October 18th 1 Day in Martinsville VA. 12u is FULL. We are in Covington VA for an event on October 18-19 and we can take more teams in 10u, 12u and 14u. We are also letting teams play a 4 Game Guarantee there for $350 (this includes ALL gate fees). And lastly, we have a few spots open for our “Monsterjam 2″ event set for October 25-26. We have almost 70 teams entered now and I will probably cap it off at 80 to 85 teams. Please let me know if your team would like to enter any of these events. We are FULL for the rest of September at all events.
I have decided to make our “Border Wars” tournament set for October 4-5 in Eden NC and Walnut Cove NC into a 1 Day, Saturday ONLY event. It will be a 3 Game Guarantee for $225. We will play the 10u and 12u in Walnut Cove. The 14u and 16u/18u will play in Eden. I will have Gametimes up for our event in Dublin VA this weekend posted by 6pm tonight. The Gametimes for our Fall World Series will be posted by 6pm on Wednesday. I also wanted to let teams know that in order to get as many teams off the Waiting Lists for “Paint it Pink 2″, my format for that event will probably be 2 Warmup games, followed by a Double Elimination bracket. Saving time with Warmup games will hopefully allow me to get in a few more teams. With so many teams in each age, I will place teams in Blue, Green and White brackets. These brackets will NOT face each other. This is an event held to raise money for Breast Cancer Research and for the Rockingham Co Hospice so I hope teams realize that and remember the real reason we are there. EVERY player at this event will receive an individual keepsake so we hope teams will understand that I am doing the best I can to let every team in that I can. And that means a different type of tournament format to accommodate getting teams in. Our “Monsterjam 2″ event set for October 25,26 may have more teams in it than “Paint it Pink 2″ so there may be a similar format to it as well. Teams have asked me about wearing costumes at this tourney and that is allowed as long as nothing hangs down that could grab or injure a player during play. We will have a Best Dressed Team, a Best Dressed Coaching staff and a Best Decorated Tent contest at each park. We will have more info on that and where each age will be playing at announced soon.
I wanted to provide an update on a couple items to teams. First, we have 1 spot open in 14u for our 1 Day at Randolph Park in Dublin VA this coming Saturday, Sept 20. Please let me know if your team would like to play. ALL ages are FULL at Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC and Oak Ridge NC for our Fall World Series. Secondly, I have 5 of our Tournament Packages left to sell. I may have more at beginning of October. I had a limited amount that we planned to sell this Fall and the teams that let me know they wanted one have all of this month to pay. If any do not pay by end of month, I will have those I can sell as well. If you need more information on our Tournament Packages, please email me at email@example.com.
Many teams are needing more information and details about our “Paint it Pink 2″ event coming up October 11,12. We have many teams on Waiting lists and I am working to get them off of that and into the tourney. I can say for sure now that the 10u and 12u ages will be at Pleasant Garden Community Center in Pleasant Garden NC. There are 6 fields there. I have several on the Waiting list for 12u and I will work on a format that will get those teams in. We will not be able to secure another park in that area so only way for me to get those teams in is to tweak my format. As for 14u and HS age teams – We have Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC and Freedom Park in Eden NC reserved as of now. We also have access to the 4 fields at the YMCA in Eden NC for Sunday. I also have many on the Waiting list for 14u. I am working on securing another park for Saturday to clear 14u teams off the list. With the addition of the Y on Sunday, we could handle all the 14u and HS age teams. Saturday is the issue now. We have a possibility of getting 1 of 2 parks that have 2 fields. I will know more this week. So for now, 14u and HS teams should plan to be in the Reidsville/Eden area for the tourney. IF I book 1 of those parks for Saturday, I will still bring all 14u and HS teams back to Reidsville/Eden area for Sunday play. I know many of you are looking to book rooms now. I will let teams know now that I will do ALL I can to get in all who want to play. This is a benefit tourney where we will be donating money to help Breast Cancer Research and to the Hospice of Rockingham County as we did last year. So please understand my format/schedule may be different than any other tourney we play. I do not want to keep out any team that wants to play unless I truly can’t make the schedule work.
We want to Thank all the teams that participated in our All Nighter event from this past Saturday night/Sunday morning. As I said before, I tried to hold the tourney in the Summer while players were out of school but couldn’t get parks/cities to get approval in time. With the success of this past weekend, that will not be an issue next year. With that being said, I am letting everyone know that “All Nighter 2015″ will be held on Friday, July 3rd, completing the event on Saturday morning, July 4th. We now will have time to plan more activities to coincide with the Holiday. We hope to have a cookout at each park at Midnight. I will try to plan where we can stop play for 1 hour for teams to enjoy fellowship with their teams and to celebrate July 4th before starting play again. I expect a lot of interest in this tourney so I am letting teams know now that I will post this event on our Who’s Playing early in January. The earlier I see the response I get will allow me plenty of time to get more parks if I need them. We also hope teams will wear Red, White and Blue like many of you do with the Pink for Paint it Pink. I will also do a better job managing how many I let in so we are finished earlier at all parks. I was limited in the amount of parks I could get this year and wanted to let in as many teams that wanted to play. I understand some teams/parents didn’t like this type of event but overwhelmingly the results were positive. We hope we can make the 2015 event bigger and better.
