The 10th Annual Kyle Wilson Memorial tournament is this coming Labor Day weekend and is a Nationwide Conference USSSA event for the 1st time.  Both the men and women will play a Dual event with the 1st tournament starting Friday morning and ending Saturday early afternoon and the 2nd event starting Saturday and ending Sunday evening.  There are 15 teams from 10 different states playing in the men's Conference tournament and 11 teams are from the league.  The winner will get 180 + (11 x 4) = 224 points!  The tournament features all 4 Major teams (Dan Smith, Resmondo, Bad Draw, and Pure Sports) as well as 2 'AA' teams Anarchy/MPT and Smashit/Precision.  The interest will be primarily on the Major teams as usual but a side story is the points race for the last couple spots in the USSSA Major World Series with just 3 regular season tournaments remaining (Kyle Wilson Dual + Canton, Michigan).  The the season will wrap up in Columbus, Georgia with the Last Chance/Conference Championships whose points will be added to each teams total.

The men are at the Valley View Park with its 300 foot fences and the women are at the G Richard Pfitzner Complex which also has fences around 300.  The men then start Dual #2 at Pfitzner before moving back over to Valley View Park.  The two parks are about 25 minutes apart from each other.

With the tournaments spread out live streaming will be difficult but we will attempt to live stream all fields provided the equipment arrives from Utah and Atlanta and there is power and 4G internet.

Kyle Wilson a Prince William County career firefighter was killed while searching for occupants in a three-alarm house fire.

Wilson's death marks the first line-of-duty fatality in the 41-year history of the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue.

Firefighters lost physical contact with Wilson during the initial search and tried to rescue him but had to withdraw when the house began to collapse.
The seven occupants of the house in Woodbridge escaped and were inside a neighbor's house when firefighters began their search and rescue operation.

Although heavy fire was showing, firefighters had reason to believe there were occupants inside the house, and that there was the potential to make a rescue.

But high-speed winds gusted through windows that the fire blew out, feeding the flames and creating intensely dangerous conditions. Firefighters "made every effort to initiate a rescue," but the fire continued to rapidly spread and firefighters were forced to evacuate when the structure began to collapse.

Wilson, who graduated from Hylton in 2000, joined the department in January 2006, graduating from the recruit academy that June.

Wilson is survived by his parents, brother, sister and girlfriend.
