Team Minnesota

Santa Rosa Fastpitch

Many other teams have requested further information this week.

We anticipate filling the tournament for the fifth straight year.


St. George is located in the southwestern corner of Utah. It's a warm
weather retirement community with seven beautiful diamonds consisting of
golf green quality outfields with enclosed fences. There is a full service
snack open during the entire tournament. The ball park is situated amongst
the beautiful backdrop of red colored mountains and green trees and lawns.

There is plenty of parking. The ball park is located just a few minutes away
from the city center. These are the most beautiful diamonds West of Orlando,
Florida's Disney World Complex. Many feel they are the finest they have ever
played on. The outfields are like carpets.

Many teams over the years have made this a family trip combining Las Vegas
and the Red Rock tournament into a super 3-4 day holiday. They either arrive
a day early or leave a day later spending a night or two in Las Vegas. There
are special group rates for 10 or more people. A few of the players
significant others spent the entire time in Las Vegas and were joined by
their significant others either before or after the tournament.

Getting to the Red Rock International Invitational:

St. George Airport:

The St. George airport is located about 5 minutes the downtown area and
about 10 minutes from the ball park and offers jet service as well as
commuter aircraft.

Las Vegas McCarran International Airport:

Driving from the Las Vegas airport is about a 1½ hour drive North up
Interstate 15. As you approach the mountain pass approaching St. George, the
view is absolutely incredible. Be sure to bring your camera.

There is a shuttle between the Las Vegas airport and/or the Salt Lake City
airport to both hotels listed below in St. George:

Salt Lake City Airport

Driving from the Salt Lake City Airport is about a 5 hour drive South on
Interstate 15.

Driving from Southern California can easily be calculated via Las Vegas.

Ken Hackmeister, executive director of the International Softball Congress
(ISC) will once again serve as Tournament Director.

Josh Olmstead of St George Leisure Services will be the Host Administrator
of the tournament.

Roy Stout will be the Umpire-in-Chief.

Bob Henning is Deputy Umpire-in-Chief.

Umpires are from various locations around the USA and Canada. Many have ISF
International and/or ISC World Tournament experience. All of the games will
work the three-umpire system.

It is expected teams will be from USA, Canada and Mexico.

Games will conclude on Sunday early enough for teams to make flights from
Las Vegas.
