The revised schedule is about to go live, and our CCWBWS team cannot express our gratitude to you for your patience today. We got hit early after our folks had been out since before 5 am getting the fields playable for your teams. Rest assured, they will not quit on you and will be right back at it early tomorrow morning. We have a very volatile weather system moving through the area with 50% in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday. That said, and all things considered, we are going to make every effort to get all of you one pool game tomorrow and seed your teams into a modified bracket that would bring all of you back Sunday for a chance to win a division. We will post the bracket just as soon as we can execute our plans for tomorrow.

Time limits for tomorrow are back to 1 hour and 45 minutes for all divisions 9U through 15/HS and 1 hour and 30 minutes no new inning after 1 hour and 15 minutes. NO EXTRA INNINGS.

Thanks again from all of us - enjoy your evening and let's roll tomorrow!

Please distribute to all of your baseball family

All games in all age groups are cancelled for Friday July 15. If you purchased single day passes this morning, please save them as we intend to honor them on Saturday July 16.

Once the rain lets up we will have a lot of work to do at the field level. We intend to have a workable schedule for Saturday pool play by 8 pm this evening. Thanks to all of you for your patience and continue to watch for messages and notifications.

You can view your roster online by clicking on your team name in the schedule and a page will open - scroll down and view your players and make sure all are added.

IF YOU HAVE NOT loaded your roster, they will be frozen and you will be LOCKED out at 11:59 PM tonight Thursday, July 14, 2022.

It will be an inconvenience to assist you with this further and it's doubtful we will be available due to the forecast - everyone in the event has been sent roster invites so check your spam folder. There is a minimum of $50 administrative fee if we have to assist you in adding players after receipt of this message. ANY PLAYER not on your roster before your first game of the event begins is considered an illegal player and you cannot add players once your first game begins. Having an illegal player can cause your team to forfeit.

Also. MAKE SURE you have with you a birth record for every player on your Roster. Any player without a valid birth record can also cause your team to forfeit the event. WE DO NOT CHECK BIRTH RECORDS EXCEPT WHEN A PROTEST FOR ELIGIBILITY IS FILED so the burden is on the team to have these records at the event.

Please travel safe and we wish the very best to all of your teams this weekend!

To all teams and age divisions.

Please see the attachment and go ahead and share it with all of your families and attendees.

Periodic, scattered thunderstorms remain a threat in this weekend's forecast and we're trying to get ahead of things prior to First Pitch on Friday morning by going to a 1-hour and 30-minute time limit (finish the inning in progress) in ages 9U through 15U/HS. In the 8U Divison, teams are already on a 1-hour and 30-minute scheduling window with no new innings after 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Until we can update the game schedule, use the information in the attachment and plan accordingly.
