    Hello,
    I was just curious to find out if you’ll have your World sites/dates published on 11/23. We are having an organizational meeting that evening an finalizing scheduling. I have a few parents on my team that are in need of vacation requests and I need to give them our travel date. To be more specific, for my team, I plan on playing the 10U “C” East. Historically, it has been in the Salsbury/Ocean City MD area on the 3rd week of July( 15th ish-20thish). If you already have that planned, would you please let me know? Otherwise, will it be known to the public on 11/23?
    Thanks in advance,
    Rusty Scott

    • Hello Rusty,
      We have returned from our convention which was held last week in Ft. Myers. We received confirmation that the 10U “C” East Region World Series will take place in Salisbury, Maryland, July 16-20, 2014. If you need more information, please feel free to contact me. Thank you.
