FIELD ASSIGNMENTS for Age Groups :     Posted 12-5-17
   The following locations are where we anticipate the specific age groups will be playing the majority of their
    games during the 2018 NSA “B” and "C" World Series in Northwest Indiana. 
    While there is no scientific method of deciding which age group plays in specific locations at this time, we
    have used NSA’s history of the number of teams attending to provide this guide for you to make hotel arrangements.  
    This is our best assessment of the situation at this time and hope it will assist you with hotel selections.
     In the end, the FINAL decision is based the number of total teams in the event, and how many teams are in
    each specific age group.  These final numbers or counts of teams entered are not available until very close to the tournament.

______________________________________________________________________________________

GIFT EXCHANGE or GIFT SWAPS       PIN TRADING IS ENCOURAGED AT ALL TIMES!
There will NOT be a GIFT EXCHANGE or SWAP in the NSA "B" or "C" World Series.
  We feel that many teams are just trying to stretch their budget to make the trip to the World Series
  and have found that the gift swap at their first game puts an extra burden on the teams.  We would rather
  you have freedom to choose how the extra funds can be spent with your own team or even possibly have 
  pizza party with a team you've just met....   (Added to packet 8-25-15)



TEAM INSURANCE - Q & A
   Can my team play in the NSA "B" or "C" World Series if their insurance is NOT an NSA/Westpoint Insurance Policy?

   Yes, that is correct, just supply us with a copy of your current insurance for your team when submitting your paperwork.    
    We will make sure that your team meets the NSA/Westpoint Insurance requirement for the World Series tournament.
    Nothing else you need to do and no additional fees for your team.
