This was the first tournament Robin and I have hosted at Big League Dreams Redding. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant seemed to be quite busy, and much beer flowed. (I just drank water and ice tea all day. It was around 100 degrees and the artificial turf was hot!) There must have been 15 staff people at the park for the tournament. Good to help the Redding economy. We would run another tournament there. Overall it was a positive experience.
