Plans underway for 22nd Pacificwide softball tournament Memorial Day weekend
Published: February 6, 2012
Start making those flight arrangements to Inchon International Airport and those reservations at the Dragon Hill Lodge. The 22nd Pacificwide Open Interservice Softball Tournament is on.
Jeff Jackson, vice president for business development for DRASH, a military clothier, said via Facebook message that he’s worked with Yongsan Garrison command and the tournament will happen May 25-28 at the Lombardo Field FourPlex on Yongsan’s south post.
The format stays the same as last year, Jackson said. That means an open- and post-level teams tournament, plus one for company-level teams and one for women. The men’s open tournament will feature pool play plus two double-elimination brackets with the winners squaring off in a best-of-three final.
Entry fee is the same as last year, $500. While the entry deadline is May 10, “that may slide one way or the other” as DRASH and Yongsan command finalise details. For information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 914-806-3473 for now. DRASH plans to set up a tournament Facebook page. Once a point of contact within the garrison is established, Jackson says he’ll provide it.
