So, I just have to let some frustration out in regards to the GAPSS tournament this past weekend. Maybe it was better for the older ages etc. but wasn't impressed for the 12u division. Well, maybe just in all. I am very frustrated at the fact that we could prepay for parking and or pay as we arrive etc. In regards to that, I have no problem paying to park IF the people are actually out there charging all day and not just the first day first game and then no where to be found. Not only that considering we played at the middle school fields or I should say field and HS field there should have been no charge for parking at all. AGAIN NOT against paying for parking if you are going to do it the whole time and be stationed out there to charge everyone etc. There were quite a few people upset with that. Not to mention, You make some pay for parking etc. but then there were no concessions of any sort. Other then a Kona ice station. I have been to numerous tournaments and even those that are in the middle of nowhere and or further away from actual concessions have had a make shift concession. With snacks and water and Gatorade etc. Those were no where to be found for the 12u. At least at the HS and MS field. I must say at least the Porta johns stayed cleaned. So, in all this tournament was not at all at the high standard that people have made it out to be. Again, at least for the 12u. Pretty sad to when you have an ump having the other team keep track of time and mind you had to keep turning around to ask how much more time, and doesn't even know the correct count and has to keep clearing it up with the field ump bc he kept getting questioned about it. THANK god for the younger field ump, he did a great job at keeping track of the count etc. NOT looking for rude comments and not trying to be rude even though it may come across like that. Just venting bc it just really made no sense,. and just wasn't a good impression.
