Below are the official start times for the 2007 NAFA Masters East Men's Fastpitch World Series in Rockford, Illinois at the Sportscore 1 Complex to be held September 8(Saturday)-9(Sun). They have been posted on our website at www.Nafafastpitch.com  and on Al Doran's site and on Jim Flanagan's www.fastpitchwest.com.  The Carson City start times will be posted on Thursday this week.

There will be no parking fee this weekend but there will be a spectator admission fee of $5 per day for all non-uniformed males and females. Each team will be allowed entry for all players in uniform, 2 coaches and one scorekeeper.
 
Coaches please confirm that you have received your start time by emailing us at  Nafafastpitch@aol.com  AND INCLUDE your cell phone number where we can get you at all times of the tournament and your motel where you are staying should we need to contact you for any reason. The Tourney emergency and rain info line should that necessary is 888-852-1115.

Remember each team is allowed three players 3 years too young that cannot pitch. All pitchers and other players must be turning the legal age in this calendar year. As of this time we have no geographic restrictions and no classification restrictions. You will be allowed to use only the players that are on your roster. The masters roster for 2007 can have 30 players on each roster so make sure you add enough players to your roster from other teams that are playing in this event in higher age brackets to cover yourself so that you don't have to forfeit.

Many players are playing in multiple age divisions and on Saturday their are very few age division conflicts but on Sunday there will be due to the large size of this years event so you have to have enough players to play when your game is scheduled as don't plan to hold any games up to wait for individual players who are playing in multiple divisions.

Print out the NAFA Official roster from our website and bring it with you to the tournament and hand it to the tournament director 60 minutes prior to your first game with Loren Lathrop at the registration tent.

There will be a homerun contest Friday night at 7pm and the coaches and umpire meeting will take place at that time also. If you want to check your players in on Friday night you may do so at the Complex.
 
If you have an emergency during the event call Benjie's cell phone at 503-559-5398.
 
We will be checking in each team's players at each complex 60 minutes prior to your first game to assure all players are legal age. Loren Lathrop will oversee the rosters and be the tournament director for fields 1-4 and Mike Watson will be the tournament director for fields 5-8 at Sportscore and check in those teams starting there.  Any player coming late needs only to check in with Mike or Loren once they arrive.
