    Not a shot at all, just wanting to help people learn from what has happened to others.

    Who the f**k are you and why are you talking crap about a tourney that got rained out and went to a card draw?

    Are we really talking about The July Classic? That is a joke of a tournament 6 Class teams all from Canada and Grand Forks 4 Rec 1 teams ha you can hardly call that a tournament. And of course it would get called because of rain those fields up there hold about as much water as my dogs little blue baby pool.

    Interesting theory guy. Too bad you're wrong. After a long day at Rick's and indulging in that extra Appletini you just shouldn't have had you may not have posted this nonsense. You must have been white girl wasted. Rec 1 had a full round robin on Saturday.

    Ummm, apparently you haven't heard but a few beefy MMB players made the trip to GF so yeah.. the July Classic is basically now forever legit. You've heard of MMB, right? They actually sell their own shirts/hats.. it's like, really cool~

    Depends on what BEEFY MMB players were there, my guess is they sent their scrubs up there and all the Grand Forks players secretly wanted their autographs. Similar to when the Twins send their player caravan around to all towns in North Dakota, you have to be a super fan to know who the hell they are.

    Solid guess, besides the fact that MMB would never allow an actual "scrub" to play for them. My guess is that's why you'll never be on their squad. But yeah, everyone in Forks who saw those sweet-ass MMB hats was just dying for an autograph.. or a ZJ~

    Speaking of super fan weirdos though, I wish you all the best in your curious quest to learn about other teams weekend softball plans.. #getalife

    I’ll be at the Polk County Fair in Fertile,Mn continuously riding the Ferris Wheel while stuffing my face with Oofda Taco after Oofda Taco trying to figure out just how we (Hashers) lost the most prestigious tournament in the State of North Dakota (The July Classic).

    After that..I’ll probably chug a bottle of Vodka and pass out till State rolls around.

    Seth, Mellmer, and Matt played with First Class Mortgage. They're kinda beefy.

    I will take Mmb in C. D will come down to the draw. Whichever of D*ckson, Dmvw, Rhombus, gets the best draw.

    How'd everybody end up this weekend. I know a few of the results, but not all. It would have been nice for Rumors to come to DL, we would have enjoyed working them in the silver division.

    DL isn't in Grand Forks so there's no way we would ever go there. We prefer these tiny fields so we feel decent about ourselves. It's all about confidence ya know?! What team do you play for?

    Good Weekend for ball this past weekend weather wise. From what I've heard results from the weekend:

    Brainerd
    Box/3x 2nd
    Rhombus with a good showing got 6th I believe, if they can play like that in D state and Nats they will be a tough out

    Litchfield
    QC: 6th or 7th not sure exactly but finished just outside the money I believe, the fact they showed up on Sunday is a win in itself.

    DL
    MMB 1st obviously it was an unlimited HR tournament, now if only they would make state unlimited HR's.
    DMVW 4th I think after they shagged balls for MMB during the HR derby they stopped caring
    The Box JV 5th couldn't keep up with MMB's varsity team.

    There was no tournament in Grand Forks so no Grand Forks teams played this weekend.

    I see the old thread peeked its head out of the swamp, lets bury that back where it belongs.

    Looked like some ND teams in multiple tiers are heading to fireman's this weekend, is there anything else going on?

    You've obviously spent a lot (too much) time watching the beasts of ND slow-pitch and you should really know better than to aggravate them at this point. But since you're all "Curious George" about the weekend, I'll enlighten you slightly..

    MMB & the Box will be waxing their taints. Stop by Nails 2000 on Main if you want to check it out or get your hands on a few stray hairs.
    Most of DMVW will be at my grandma's baby shower on Saturday so they won't be playing.
    Livewire will be taking morning & evening BP on Sat/Sun to prepare for their early August sand-bagging in Bismarck.
    QC might go to Fireman's if they can find a couple suckers to agree to ride down with Tony.
    Rhombus.. pfff, who cares. Grand Forks/Bismarck.. who cares~

    I think they are going to run it like a grand forks tournament. Please just assume you play at 9 am Saturday and show up to a field. Whoever chooses the other dugout is who you play.....Good luck to all.
