Some information on various topics brought up... |
On the ASP Topic:
Aurora schedules their permits almost 2 years in advance now. Permit requests for 2020 events were due February 1, 2019 and the issue date for 2020 permits was May 1, 2019. To give an example of the time frame.
ASP is booked solid with youth events from park open through the end of summer. When we were asked to move dates to help alleviate some scheduling issues elsewhere on the conference schedule, we were able to be flexible by making the move to Loveland, CO.
As for Barnes@ Loveland....
I felt Loveland did a phenomenal job on the fields this weekend. For someone to suggest the fields were never prepped on Friday/Saturday, they were not in the park, if they were what their agenda is I do not know. Anyone that walked in at 5:30pm on Friday and 8:00am on Saturday or played in the hill game/championship knows what they saw.
If the veiled inference is that I am trying to save face and having people post, that is not true. Remember, we moved weekends twice and location to assist two other locations in the conference that were having permit/scheduling issues. We were able to do our part as a member of the association to help out the overall conferences schedule, not sure that requires any saving face. Colorado has always supported Conference USSSA and continues to do what is necessary to demonstrate their support of the program.
We had both non-conference and conference teams ask what was the deal with the negative posts leading up to the event, because the park was fine and the fields were great/no issue. I don't do these message boards anymore. So I had not seen any of it, I just heard second-hand information. After looking at some threads, clearly someone has an agenda. I have too much going on to worry about things I know that are not true/false or partake in keeping someone's agenda going.
It must be true because its on the internet...
On our end...
We had a field of teams that we were excited about for the holiday weekend. There were some great games on the fields and really enjoyable softball to watch. All of the teams treated each other with professionalism, respect and respected the game. We really could not ask for more. Congratulations to Bay Area Legends on a well deserved championship this past weekend! A big thank you to all of the teams that supported the event for a great weekend here in Colorado! We hope to see you back in 2020 and hope between now and then your teams have a great finish to the 2019 Conference USSSA season!
