    Wow, I cant keep up. So do you know if the event on August 6-8 is cancelled? Whatever they are calling that one:LOL:

    Scenic City Cancelled

    DD wasn't scheduled to go to Scenic City but I just checked the website out of curiosity and I could not find any information about cancellation but did notice they seemed to reschedule for August 6-9. https://www.connectsports-events.com/scenic-city-summer/

    Ohio Softball to start on 5/26!

    To my eye the trend in deaths is going down in Georgia and up in Texas on these charts. Not sure why you are so defensive. I said it wasn't going as well as Georgia, didn't say it was going horribly.

    Ohio Softball to start on 5/26!

    You nailed it right here. Because this virus is brand new much of the info we receive ranges from educated guesses to batshit crazy. Georgia reopens and as of yet no spike as was feared but Texas is not going as well. Why the difference? Who knows Maybe I should just be happy because DD is...

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    Great question! Wish we had definitive word on the dead period. While I appreciate them not acting too quickly it makes it very difficult to plan when the dead period may just get extended again on the 27th. Got an email from the All Ivy Camp today, it was scheduled for Monday June 29th in...

    Any info on NCAA dead period extension

    My understanding is this would not be allowed during a dead period just as coaches are not allowed to attend showcases during a dead period but I am far from an NCAA rules expert.

    Any info on NCAA dead period extension

    I thought the decision was due to be released today but could only find this article that appears to be specific to basketball. I felt all along as soon as the SEC cancelled all camps through July 31 that the dead period would also be extended until then. I just didn't see a way the SEC would...

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    I agree the Headfirst camp may become critical this year. MY DD has done the Headfirst Camp on Long Island the last 2 years, we originally were not planning on doing it this year but given the current situation we may have to. I assume you liked the camp since you are signed up for it again. I...

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    Not disagreeing with your point about how they arrived at the regional model, my complaint was more of a self pity over how the corona virus was affecting my DD and many others in the 2022 class. Specifically for her and others interested in high academic schools, they tend to have a national...

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    We usually fly to Atlanta and drive to Chattanooga. About 2 hours from the airport. Not ideal but not that bad since we usually play about 30-40 minutes north of Atlanta anyway so it is a little over an hour extra ride. With a 2022 DD I am just disappointed by the regional model especially...

    Colorado IDT and Fireworks plans

    Just got official word. Splitting into regions. The one surprise is 4 regions not the 3 most expected. In addition to the others they added a SoCal. Oh and it is Chattanooga not Atlanta.

    New Guidelines For The Team ~ What will your team do? What to expect.

    I thought this post had a lot of good information to help put the guidelines into context and did not have a lot of overtly biased opinion. Makes me feel better about DD playing softball but worse about using the restrooms, flying to the big tournaments, and going out to restaurants while there...

    New Guidelines For The Team ~ What will your team do? What to expect.

    I agree with you 1000% DD's team started traveling to the South twice a year at 12u, Before recruiting was a major motivation. Her coach wanted to challenge them against the best. But now that the trips are much more frequent and recruiting motivated I still find humor sitting in Alabama...
