Just my Opinion
After the first (5) tournaments that we were scheduled to play in were cancelled, we have elected not to play in the last tournament that was a go.
I love playing the game, played a lot of tournaments over the last (14) years, I miss the competitiveness, & my teammates.
I will be ready to go in 2021.
league play has been cancelled in both Austin & San Antonio.
I have taken up of bike riding to fill the void.
Be safe.

Capt. Kirk-I did that, too, on March 17 when we shut down. I have been bicycling steadily for the first time in 6 years because finally I was not on the road working. Here we are 2,070 miles later and still shut down. We are still hoping St. George happens in softball. But, if not, is there a Tour de Oldage for us? (put the accent on the -age part)

With the change to St. G being made public five days ago, there's a good chance Terry and associates felt Utah might not make any last minute cancellations of softball tournaments. Our rec leagues have been playing for 5-6 weeks, there's been a girls u18 tournament for college coaches to watch on line, and the St. G annual Heatstoker tournament just ended yesterday. Plus, it's been rumored that Terry "received and offer he couldn't refuse".

Bike riding can be challenging, especially riding on city streets, I usually ride in subdivisions, I found that it is the safest place to ride.
I have a 40+ mile route that I ride when riding in the city.
I prefer riding at Mission & McAllister Park trails in San Antonio, the weekdays are great, the weekend gets crowded.
I normally ride with up to 4 or 5 other guys, I track my rides using Strava.
We rode on Saturday at McAllister, we rode 28 miles & averaged 14.7 MPH.
We were preparing for the Fiesta Wildflower Bike Ride, but it has been cancelled. Cancellation seem to be norm.

Dan ... Except for the complete fiction of your last sentence, that's an accurate analysis ... St. George was already the re-scheduled dates for the previously cancelled Spring World Championships, so we were somewhat "calendar protected" when faced with California not opening up in time to allow for the Western National's to occur in Sacramento/Placer Counties ... Fingers are still crossed and we're hopeful for the Western's! ... This week's goal is to get through the Jim Sherman Memorial Northwest Championships with the continuing blessings of Marion County and Salem, OR starting Tuesday ...

"Cancellation seem to be norm". Dave, you call this statement fiction? I just went thru the 2020 Tournament list and 37 tournaments have been cancelled so far this year. Sorry, but got to disagree with you calling cancellation is the norm, "fiction". Im just hoping the cancellation list stays at 37 between now and the beginning of the 2021 season

Parman ... Please carefully re-read what I typed, not what you think I might have typed but didn't ... You also seem to want to misquote DieselDan, too!... Dan's ONLY fictional statement was his last sentence: Plus, it's been rumored that Terry "received and offer he couldn't refuse".

Capt Kirk -I have a hybrid bike. 112 in Tucson today, without the heat factor. LOL. I have mostly bike trails around here and have 30, 35 and 40 mile routes. Best time was 15 miles in 56 minutes. And did 30 miles in 2:04 once. 14.7 is great! It's a little addicting.....

Capt., around here we have drugged drivers (both legal and illegal), fly by night driving schools, distracted drivers, foreigners who can't read the traffic signs, ragers who don't like bikes taking up 'their' road, drunk drivers, speeders, illegals driving, and impatient drivers, watch yourself out on the roads; Your chances of being struck by a vehicle are probably higher than getting the virus. The same goes for mountain/trail biking and the unforeseen hazards involved with that. To use a phrase that's already overused these days, stay safe.
