Just curious who else had a horrible experience with this tournament?? Lack of umpires and the ones they did have they didn't treat right. No hospitality room for the officials and the first day didn't even supply water for the umpires at the complex we were playing. Second day was scheduled to play at one complex only to arrive and find out that no umpires had shown up to call the games before so we had to wait a couple hours. After the couple of hours we were told to relocate to another complex 25 miles away, complete game one and win and have to wait another 6 hours to play game 2 of the day. All in all 13 hours at the field in 100 degree heat and only play 2 games. We won our first game and should have been played our last game at 12:30 but ended up playing last game of the day at 7pm. It was just one screw up after another, they ended up getting enough officials but on day three we played 4 seven inning games back to back to back to back without being given a break for the girls to eat. On top of all this there were no trainers available to take care of any injuries or give players ice. Seems like TCS got $2200 as an entry fee per team and decided to go on the cheap. We have played TCS tournaments before and never had anything this screwed up.
