July 11-12, Showcase 1 July 24-26 – FYI

I wanted to let teams know that for our events on July 11-12, the only spots available are in 12u at Summerfield Athletic Park in Summerfield NC. We can take 2 more in 12u there.  We have 84 teams playing next weekend so we appreciate all those playing. I will take the 2 teams in 12u until Noon on Tuesday.  I will have Gametimes posted Tuesday evening by 6pm.  If your team would like to enter or get put on any of our waiting lists for next weekend, please email me at timdoby@gotgamefastpitch.com.

I wanted to let the teams playing in our Showcase 1 event set for Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC on July 24-26 know that IF we do not receive your payment by Friday, July 10th that your players will NOT receive a tournament shirt.  It is ok to pay at check in that Friday afternoon that we begin play, but in order for your girls to receive a tournament shirt I MUST have PAYMENT and SIZES by next Friday.  I am turning in my order for shirts at 9am Monday July 13 and I will be in Salem VA from this Thursday til late Sunday night so I will check in with Kristie Friday night to see who has paid during the coming week.  I had set a deadline concerning entry fee and sizes  yesterday, Friday July 3 but we have only had 4 or 5 pay so far.  As I said, I am ok with payment on Friday, July 24 but your players will NOT get a shirt.  I have no way of guessing at sizes for players and I have had these deadlines posted to the website for months.  I hope you all understand my position on this topic.

* Lonnie Raines 12U ’03 Virginia Scrappers offers Challenge

Hey Tim. Our girls are working hard to collect food for the Strike Out Hunger tournament in Salem in two weeks.  Today was their only free Saturday in weeks to set up at Kroger and request food donations. In six hours these girls collected 723 food items, then used the $254 they received in donations to purchase another 427 items for a total of 1,150 items.  Our team isn’t finished – we have at least one more food drive planned. We challenge all of the teams playing in this tournament to work hard to support the cause!  We challenge any team to beat us!  😀 Lonnie Raines 12U ’03 Virginia Scrappers

Danville VA Dates ADDED- FYI

I have added dates in Danville VA for August 22-23 and October 17-18.  I will have more details tonight as I will add them to our TOURNAMENTS and WHO’S PLAYING pages.  I anticipate being in this area much more in 2016 and we will see the response from teams on these 2 events and that will help me decide how many dates to request for next season.  I want to thank the city of Danville for wanting to become part of our Got Game Nation and welcoming us into their city. We were there last season and we both experienced some growing pains in hosting an event in their city but are proud to announce we are returning again.  Please check back tonight to see the details for these dates.

Showcase 1 July 24-26 NOW FULL. Team FYI

I wanted to let teams know that our 1st Summer Showcase set for Carolyn Allen Park in Greensboro NC on July 24-26 is NOW FULL.  I will add teams to WAITING LISTS and IF a team(s) have not paid by July 3rd, I will move in team(s) off waiting list and give them until July 10th to pay entry fee.  I wanted to go over a few of the items concerning this event:

-Teams MUST pay Entry Fee AND turn in Player Sizes for t-shirts by July 3rd.  ALL players will receive a Showcase shirt.

-There will be NO GATE FEES collected. That is included in Entry Fee.

-Unless we have a team(s) drop, IF you decide NOT to play on Friday, you will get to play 4 games.  I have booked the park for Friday and posted from the beginning that teams would get 1 game Friday, 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday.

-I will use paper wristbands for the college coaches to distinguish ages.  I will have different colors for the following: Rising Freshman, Rising Sophomore, Rising Junior, Rising Senior and Unsigned Seniors.  We will need you in your envelope with payment and t-shirt sizes to let me know how many of each you will need.  I will give you enough for each player for 3 days and you will pick up on Friday July 24th at check in.

-I encourage each team to have the info you wish college coaches to see about your players hanging on the fence beside your dugout each game.  I will have you turn in profiles for your players to us but many times coaches will come by and get out of your basket etc your schedule for rest of season and review player info.  I have/will be contacting more college coaches but if there is a particular school you are interested in for your player(s), you need to be contacting them to let them know you will be playing in this event.

-Gametimes will be as follows: Friday and Saturday Gametimes will be 1 Hour 30 Minutes Finish the Batter.  I had planned to do 1 Hour 20 Minutes but I decided on 1 Hour 30 for Friday and Saturday since I am reducing your times on Sunday to 1 Hour 10 Minutes Finish batter so we will be finished by 5pm.  We will be finished by 7pm on Saturday.  We will begin play on Friday at 3pm.  We will finish Friday around 9:30pm.  I will take requests for game slots soon for Friday.  I will be unable to accommodate all.  I will post schedule by July 10th so please get me your requests in as early as you can.

-We will have a Hospitality Tent set up for ALL coaches, College/University/Team coaches ALL 3 Days.

-We will also have during the Showcase an NCAA Umpire Training Camp ran by Christie Cornwell.  Christie will be evaluating and training NCAA umpires in 2 man and 3 man mechanics during the Showcase.  You can visit her bio and camp information at www.DiamondUmpireAcademy.com.  Christie is a 3 Time NCAA College World Series Finals Umpire.

-Please get us your Entry Fee, T-shirt sizes and Wristband info to us NO LATER than July 3rd to hold your spot.  I will note on our Who’s Playing as teams pay and spot secured.  Being FULL this early is a good thing but I do anticipate more wanting in so secure your spot now. Send to Got Game NC ASA 195 Beaver Run Eden NC 27288  Attn: Showcase #1
