First Week - Nationals in Florida.
Numbers are way down! Let me tell you why!
1. Staff is rude. If you taking peoples money at least show a litle hospitality.
2. Officials are below average. They are bullies with stripes on. Arguing with Coaches and fans. Coaches, parents, and kids were thrown out for yelling about a call. Last time I checked basketball was not a slient spectator sport. YBOA need to enforce one of the first rules taught to the officials, "keep your head inside the square"!
3. All about the money! $495 Tournament fee-$125.00 Performance Bond - $10.00 a day parking- $15.00 a day to enter. Pay your money to come-pay money to park- pay money to enter but don't you dare yell at the bullies in stripes that's engaging the crowd.
4. Now, do your own research and verify my statements.
5. Next year numbers will be even lower. If you can't spend your money and get respect from the people receiving it, take it somewhere else.
6. Empty pockets is all they will understand. Less teams means less games. This will close some of those loose mouth officals too! No teams - no need for officals.
7. NC had about 6 teams there. Over the years NC teams quit participating for the above reasons.
8.Many other organizations out there- BASKETBALL OF THE CAROLINA'S - NTBA - USBA- USSSA- AAU-just to name a few.
All will appreciate your money!
SO NORTH CAROLINA LETS TAKE OUR MONEY WHERE WE ARE APPRECIATED!
