All Hail:  E3 the 2011 Stoopball League of America World Champions!!!!!!!


What a week it was.  For eight wonderful days we at SLA World Headquarters enjoyed sharing with you and yours our home our hearts and our games.  Folks, you did yourself proud.  Thank you to one and all!  Each year we hold our breath as the days approach and every detail must be addressed.  Will we get the dry ice on time....will the tomatoes be ready......same for the corn.....will John Kase make the ribs better than ever....will the weather hold....will the kids games go off without a hitch....will we have enough 'official' SLA game balls....will the fireworks be good enough.....yes the devil is in the details! 


Now we can rest a little.  On Sunday we had a brief planning meeting for the 2012 Games.  And then Monday we went over some final business with Sarah and Adrienne regarding  Registration/Token/ Food/Beverage and so on.  Craig dismissed us and we were able to get the ladies on the road before lunch.  The place is still a ways to being back to normal, but hell we got time!!!!


As you may already have heard, it is official......next years SLA World Championships will be held on the 21st of July, 2012.  Make you plans now!!!  In order to keep you informed, we will try to remind you of that date as often as possible.


I'll close for now.  From the bottom of my heart and soul, I would like to thank each and everyone of you!  Thanks for putting up with all that I demand; each year I try to be a little less caustic and as you can attest I need to keep trying.  I hope you all found some moments this past week that will lift you up a little and remind you that we really do share some marvelous times with each other.  We will get it right .....I promise....we will keep at it....this too I promise........ Until next year-
