Dear NCSS Presidents, Delegates, and Sports Chairs:
The "Boys (and at least 3 Girls) of Summer" need YOU! Yes, folks, it's Softball Season again!
The National Conference of State Societies (NCSS) needs teams from all 50 states, the 5 territories, and the District of Columbia for the 4th Annual NCSS Summer Insanity Regional Playoffs and Championship Softball Tournament. Please provide the following information (Team Captain/Coach, Email Address, Mobile Telephone Number) to Bill Christian (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5PM (Eastern), Tuesday, June 30th, 2015.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you don't already have a Softball Team, please do not despair! Work with the U.S. Senate or House softball leagues, or with the Collegiate Alumni Network (CAN) softball league, or all of the above, to invite one of those teams to represent your state or territory, or invite members from all of the above to form a state society team! Just as long as they "represent" your state, territory, or D.C.! Ideally, we want 56 teams involved in this annual tradition!
As you may remember, the states, territories, and D.C. are divided into four (4) regions of 14 jurisdictions each. The top four (4) finishers from each region will advance to the NCSS "Sweet 16" Championship Softball Tournament (tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 25th, 2015).
Please stay tuned for more details regarding the 2015 "Summer Insanity" Softball Tournament!
