GRAND SLAM SPORTS TOURNAMENTS INC.
THE 2013 GRAND SLAM WORLD SERIES OF BASEBALL SESSION III
WEATHER UPDATE FOR WS III AS OF FRIDAY, JULY 5 @ 7:22 AM
We have just spoke to the NOAA Weather Service and have gotten the latest weather models, please see below:
- TodayShowers and possibly a thunderstorm today after lunch. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. High near 78. Southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts between 1 and 2 inches possible.
- TonightShowers and possibly a thunderstorm before 8pm, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 8pm. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. Steady temperature around 79. East southeast wind 5 to 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
- SaturdayShowers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 10am. Patchy fog before 10am. Otherwise, mostly cloudy, with a high near 86. East southeast wind around 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.
Because of this information coupled with the Park telling us that ANYMORE RAIN at all will mean a cancellation of tomorrow (Saturday) and early Sunday, we have no choice at this point but to cancel the remainder of the event. Despite our efforts to play, mother nature has other plans and we just can't control the rain. It has been our desire all along to try and play at least a Single Elimination Championship bracket but alas, that will not be possible. I deeply apologize but we have held out hope that somehow we could get some more games in but that is not possible with this latest information. I know a number of you want to get on the road and head back home so I wanted to get this information out as early as possible.
For those of you who are seeded in the top-4 in your particular age class and division, we will be set up at ROCKIT LANES on Richard Jackson Bouvelard in the Shoppes of Edgewater from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM today with trophies to give out. We will also have Tournament merchandise if anyone would like to stop by and purchase anything. Gump's Photography will also be at Rockit Lanes with the action photos that have been taken. You can also turn in any host property rebate forms at this time.
Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi & Louisiana teams will received some type of credit towards your next Grand Slam event while teams from other states will receive some type of credit into a future Grand Slam World Series event or, if the team is not able to attend one in the future, some type of refund off the team gate fee. We will determine all of this and send out the information asap.
Thank you for hanging in there with us and again, I sincerely apologize but most ALL of you have been so very supportive during this and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. Weather is the one thing we just can't control and in 9-years this is the first time any type of weather like this has happened during our World Series events. Please drive safely on your way home and THANK YOU once again for your support of Grand Slam Tournaments.
