Forgot to mention..... Our complements to you,  your staff,  the host hotels, the men in blue, and all the teams and Coaches we met.  We have nothing but great things to say about the experience, calibre,  hospitality and sportsmanship.  The best we saw all season by far!

First off, I want to express what a great event the QDT was this past weekend. The competition was excellent. We've never experienced a tournament where the schedule was so precise as far as game times (I'm sure the 1-1 count had a lot to do with that).  Even though we are a very young team (all 8th and 9th graders), I feel like we made a pretty good showing, especially in the pitching department. Our 8th grade pitcher even managed to no-hit both the Louisville Stunners and the NC Challengers '98 with a combined 19 K's!  And I think I speak for all of our coaches when I say we'd love to come back next year  - when we're a little older - to take home a trophy.

We really enjoyed the competition this weekend.  Our schedule was such that we did not face one single average or weak team.  Win or lose, it was a lot of fun.  My favorite aspect is that we are truly a ’99 and were playing a bunch of ’98 girls.

Parent-
Thank you very much for your work on this event.  I really appreciate the kind words that you said to one of my parents and her daughter, who is a survivor. I know that some of my girls may never play at a high level.  But, that is why I coach.  Thanks for the persistence and not being the spam that I thought you were.  Lol

Best event we've played in..period!  Most organized, most structured, from the Blue to the opposing coaches, to the way it was run..first class.  I would recommend this event to anyone.

Your marketing tips you had given our communications director will be valuable to us as a team as we move forward.  Thanks a lot for that input!  Absolutely makes sense.  Any angle we can get to get our girls more appropriate attention is where we want to be.

It was an absolute first class tournament. We would especially like to THANK Ron & Pauline. You have 2 great people with them. We can't say enough about them. We look forward to seeing them in the future. Kirt, you are a first class guy!!! I absolutely LOVE the way you represent the game, the way you take the time to talk to everyone that wants to talk to you. You talked to over 1/2 my team at the QDSS. They enjoyed talking to you and really were in tune with what you were saying. The competition was awesome! It was a great experience all around. This is a MUST tournament for all 14U teams that want to take their team to the next level. Thanks for everything and we will be in touch!!

That is one awesome event you have there. This was my first exposure and I was amazed at the talent, the organization, the college coaches, and the life lessons given all of us. Coach told us it would be first-class and it was. We were thrilled to represent Ohio fastpitch softball and very pleased we could bring home the first QDT Championship. Thank you once again for the invitation. It sure was special to hear OH-IO echo thru the pines of South Carolina.

I just wanted to let you guys know that you did a first class job with the QDT. Everything was so nice, from the directors to the teams. We had a wonderful time and we made a load of new friends. Thank you so much for a great job and I hope the QDT continues to draw great teams and gets bigger and better each year.

A quick note to thank you once again for running an outstanding Queen of Diamonds Tournament this weekend. Our team and families really enjoyed themselves and it was a perfect way to end our 14U season. The competition was outstanding with quality coaches and players who played hard. The girls really like the backpacks. As you may know we were very successful this year and won or placed second in many tournaments. The trophies and medals were very nice for the parents, but the girls really liked receiving tee shirts, hoodies, and now the backbacks. I hope more tournaments take your lead. Finally, thank you for the kind words you told the girls during the tournament. It really means a lot when the tournament directors take the time to talk with them. It was a real pleasure to be invited and to play in such a quality event. We sincerely thank you for all your hard work.
