I had a couple games that I had entered wrong so all ages please check Gametimes again. As a REMINDER, ALWAYS check Gametimes on Friday evening before every tourney in case of changes. I will add a post if I make changes but please make it a habit to always check them the Friday evening before a tourney. Thanks to all the teams playing this weekend. We will have several contests going on at the parks and we encourage teams to bring candy to distribute to teams. Teams are allowed to wear costumes as long as they are not baggy. Coaches that have not already done so, please VERIFY your times to me. Thanks.
I have just posted Gametimes for “Monsterjam 2″ set for this coming weekend. Coaches – Please VERIFY to me by 6pm Thursday that you have received your times. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or text me at 910.690.3556.
We would like to Thank Allen Dressler and the City of Covington for their hospitality this weekend. We were treated so well and Allen, the park staff and concessions staff were so hospitable to myself and our umpires. We loved being there and the teams also had a great time. Things went so well we have already been awarded 7 dates next year at this complex. Jackson River Sports Complex has 5 fields so next year we hope to bring in 25 to 30 teams at each event. The dates for 2015 at this Complex are April 4 (Easter 1 Day), May 2-3, June 6-7, July 25-26, August 22-23, September 26-27 and October 11-12(this will be our Paint it Pink 3 VA event). Allen also wanted me to let teams know that our events in the summer months will have a free concert at the Amphitheater every Saturday night. Thanks again to the City of Covington for a great weekend.

I have posted the entire format for ALL ages/parks for our “Monsterjam 2″ tournament set for October 25,26 on our GAMETIMES section of website. I will have teams Gametimes POSTED BY 6pm Tuesday, October 21.
Our Domestic Violence Awareness Benefit tourney set for November 1,2 will NOW be a 1 Day 3 Game Guarantee to be played on November 1. Please let me know if your team can play in this event.
I wanted to let teams know some updates that have been made to our “Monsterjam 2″ tournament set for next weekend, October 25,26. 10u, 14u and HS ages are FULL. We can take 1 more team in 12u. We now will have 10 HS teams play at Oak Ridge Town Park in Oak Ridge NC and 5 HS teams play at Freedom Park in Eden NC. I had originally planned to split the HS age teams and have them play at Oak Ridge and at Jaycee Park in Reidsville NC. At that point we had 2o HS teams. We have lost some due to SAT/ACT testing and we now have 15 teams. We can fit those teams into Oak Ridge and 1 field at Freedom Park now. As I posted last week, the format for “Monsterjam 2″ will be 1 warmup and 2 pool games on Saturday. Seedings will be posted once play is complete Saturday and teams will play in Single Elimination brackets on Sunday. Many teams/players have plans on Saturday night so this way all teams will know their 3 gametimes for Saturday by Tuesday at 6pm. As I have stated before, this format will mostly be used in events such as this one and our Paint it Pink where the events have many activities for the players and/or are benefit tourneys. Our normal 4 Game Guarantee events will continue to mainly be 2 Pool Games, Double Elimination format. We will be having winners in EACH age for Best Team Costumes, Best Coaching Staff Costumes and Best Team Decorated tent. Winning teams receive a $50 OFF entry fee card to be used in 2015. I will have GAMETIMES POSTED by 6pm on Tuesday, October 21.
We can now take 2 more teams in 12u, 1 more in 14u and 1 more in HS for our “Monsterjam 2″ event set for October 25,26. 10u is FULL. I will begin prep work on this event over the weekend and the deadline to enter this event is Monday, October 20 at 10am. Please let me know if your team would like to enter. Email me at email@example.com or text me at 910.690.3556. Thanks Tim
I have decided on my format for our “Monsterjam 2″ event set for October 25,26 at 5 parks. Each team will play 1 Warmup game and 2 Pool games on Saturday. I will post seedings for teams once play is complete on Saturday and Sunday will be Single Elimination brackets. With many kids/families having plans that Saturday night, I feel it is best for all teams to know their 3 Gametimes for Saturday upfront. This will be a fun event for all and please remember that EACH age will have winners in 3 Contests – Best Coaching Staff Costumes, Best Team Costumes and Best Decorated Tent. Each winner will receive a 2015 $50 Off Entry Fee card. Teams are encouraged to bring candy to distribute to the players. Teams MAY wear costumes as long as they are not baggy where they could grab and injure a player during play. Teams do NOT have to have numbers on back of shirt/costume. For lineup purposes, name supercedes numeral so as long as name is correct on lineup card, numeral is not required. I will have Gametimes POSTED for “Monsterjam 2″ by Tuesday, October 21st at 6pm.
We have lost a few teams for Christiansburg VA tournament that was set for October 25. I wanted to let teams know that I am cancelling this event. I am doing so early so that teams left can find another event to play or play in our Monsterjam 2 event. I do realize that hotels are an issue that weekend for our Monsterjam tourney but I did not think the tourney had a chance now to make and I did not want to tell teams that a week from now. I always hate to cancel an event but I try to do so in time so teams have enough time to alter their plans.
