Saturday, August 26th, 2006
8:30 am - 5:30 pm

A.  Boys and Girls.  Ladies and Gentlemen.  Hermanos y Hermanas.  Eaters of cake. Mark those calendars.  It's official.  Friday, August 25th and Saturday, August 26th. Bohrer Park Rec Center.  Gaithersburg, MD.  The same location as the previous 2 years. 

Now, there will be no more crying about, if only we had  more time!  I wish we knew in advance!  We said we would get a specific date out to you early, and we have delivered.  Last year you had 2 & 1/2 months to prepare.  This year, you have roughly double that time in 5 months.  I don't think you heard me:

ALMOST 5 MONTHS

There, that's better.  So take time off from work early.  Get that membership to Bally's.  Organize team practices.  Go save 15% or more on your car insurance by switching to GEICO.  The whole SHABANG. 

I will of course have all the details for you including new team additions, rosters, fees, etc, etc, as we get closer and closer to tourney time.  But first, a couple of things:

1.  2 Day Event:  As you've probably noticed, this year's tourney will be a 2 day event.  We realize that this means you have to take an extra day off, but there are a few reasons why we're doing this:

a.  If all goes well, there will be 10 teams at this year's tourney, that's an increase of 2 over last year.  With that many teams, a one day tourney becomes unfeasible.  You would be talking 14-15 hours straight.

b.  Cramps.  That's right.  Cramps.  Last year, we had atleast 3 playoff teams w/players cramping up severely due to the # of games played on the one day event.  So, we've decided to spread the event out a bit over 2 days.  Our goal is such that we want all teams at or near full strength when they play.  Now, this will not eliminate cramping, but it should help reduce it.

Bottom line? GET IN SHAPE

2.  No Late Entries:  Last year, we allowed a late entry to the tourney out of the spirit of trying to include them, as they would have been the only team that missed out.  This year, we cannot allow such leniency.  Send in the fees/rosters on time and you have nothing to worry about.  But after the deadline passes, we have to move on.  It isn't fair to the planning staff or to the other teams in attendance to have to redo schedules b/c a team wasn't ready beforehand.  We want all teams to come out this year, so please be prompt and aware of the deadlines.

3.  Payment = Confirmation:  This year, the # of confirmed teams will only be posted upon receipt of team payments from each squad.  This will help eliminate confusion as to which teams are "officially in."  Having said that, our goal is to get 10 teams to the BSC this year.  The 2 new teams being Canada & Gaithersburg.

4.  August - Future Reference:  It's our intention to continue to hold this tourney in the month of August.  So please keep that in mind for future reference.

   Bohrer Park Rec Center
Gaithersburg, MD.

(same location as last year)

FEES DUE BY:
June 7th!

Team reps, you have over 5 months to get your troops into shape.  This is a full 2 & 1/2 months in advance of last year's announcement.  This is more than enough time to arrange your schedules & take time off.

------------------------------------------------------------

ATTENTION:

There are to be NO MISUNDERSTANDINGS - PLEASE READ!

Guidelines:  The following was posted last year, but in continues to be relevant this year, please read and UNDERSTAND.

1.  This event has not been sanctioned by any particular church, and it is therefore not an official church event of any kind.

2.  Let me say it again:  This event has not been sanctioned by any particular church, and it is therefore not an official church event of any kind.

Please write that down.  Post in on your fridge.  Tape it to your forehead.

3.  If you are planning on attending the 2006 BSC, and have a prior responsibility such as a music or prayer ministry, make arrangements BEFOREHAND

4.  If you are under your parents, tell them where you're going. 

5.  The Tourney will finish with enough time for those who are planning on attending a local meeting, to do so.  Enough said.

C. Tourney HQ:  All the information you need is in the The 2006 BSC section.  Check back often for more updates/details regarding this tournament.  Much Love.
