Many fans of the men’s game were following the Boys of Summer tournament out of Denmark Wisconsin this past weekend and hopefully they were not disappointed. Regarded as one of the better weekend tournaments many of the top ten teams were there including Patsy’s, making a splash but out hit by the Broken Bow Gremlins in the championship game. See our front page and click the Denmark picture http://www.alsfastball.com/ or go direct to the page we set up for them at

Hank de Wild and Karen Conrod kept us up to date over the weekend for which we are all thankful. One glitch Saturday night results were delayed when Karen thought that Hank was sending the later results but Hank did not have a real connection (seems an annual problem in Denmark) but Hank did his usual great follow up and sent the results to us when he got home at 3:15am our time. So we got caught up Sunday morning. We had good game by game results all day Sunday. Thanks to both Karen and to Hank for your efforts, much appreciated by fans worldwide. I wish every tournament had folks like you who make the effort.

See the wrap up by Zach Flash on both the news page and the Boys of Summer links.

Always the optimist, we hope to get results from both these major men’s tournaments but so far they have not confirmed that we will be receiving game by game results, but I know the fans would love to get them so we can only hope.
Also this weekend:

This past week the ISC has added brackets and schedules for both the ISC World Tournament and the ISC II Tournament of Champions along with the final rankings for both divisions.
