A few new A/B conference teams from the Carolinas are forming. 
at least 3 groups are working from the carolina's to build for the conference 

Herb – I will be 71 in January – retiring from my full time Job in February so can not be a sponsor of note – will help a team with coordination, booking flights etc and with a few bucks if needed

Steel sports? Where is that sponsor going? Answer possibly Empire 

B&B comin back i heard 

Herbprice: talked with a lot of teams about our guys so who knows what happens but this is a high potential: Steve Edwards, Chad Mullins, Bill Pinkham, Brady Stewart headed there and maybe Kirkwood and Nelson to Riot Sports.  Riot still has Keith Martin, Mike Ortiz (both former Astros), Scotty Langford, Taylor Nichols, Pat Donohue.  I am still working with Riot's Jason to find a little more sponsor money.
