Conflicting event dates make me sad, 5

The end of August and beginning of September mark the start of the professional racquetball seasons after quick breaks for summer. Many of the top players will have played for their countries at the International Racquetball Federation’s 18th World Championship in Cali, Colombia in July. Others will have played outdoor racquetball events. In the southeast, we’ll have the LPRT locally and IRT broadcasts the weekend prior to the WRT being in Atlanta.

Are you as torn between staying home to watch the pros and travelling to play in semi-local events as I am?
