I did not like it at all!!! In fact, I did not go to the games this past weekend because they were at Bradshaw Mtn instead of Apache Junction. The extra comute milage was just a little bit too far to be able to go and still be able to meet my other obligations on Saturday. Why did they move it to a location that was more out of the way, has less accomidations, and is more likely to have inclement weather anyway?
I thought it was a great facility, and the weather was incredible. But the only reason I was able to go to the games was because I happened to be up there for the 2A state volleyball tournament at Tim's Toyota Center right down the road from the HS. However, like NAZ said, it was a good location for JC, Bagdad, and Mogollon. It's all about the teams playing
I checked with Map Quest and it was only closer for two of the 4 teams, not 3. And when you take into consideration that the two teams that really should have been in the Semi finals should have been St. David and Valley Union, it would have been further for 3 of the 4 teams, with mogollon only being 30 minutes closer to Prescott.
Add in the weather factor this late in the year and I think it is crazy!!! I know we dodged a bullet last weekend but the second weekend of November can bring some very cold weather up in Prescott. Why roll the dice when you have other alternatives.
I have still not heard anyone give me a good reason why they moved the game to Prescott??????

The best 2 teams in the state are playing for the championship, thats how it should be! This is what I have said from week one: Mogollon and JC in the finals, again! St. Davis was up but couldnt hang VU was never close
The reason its in prescott is because thats who took the bid this year. A major factor is the Tims Toyota Center for other sports: V-ball, B-ball
Why does the semi finals and championship HAVE to be in Apache Junction every year? Why cant there be variety, The people in prescott dont like driving to Apache Junction, now its our turn to enjoy the small drive :D
It was PERFECT! The field was nice and the weather was beautiful! If 1A can not play at places like NAU or University of Phx Stadium then this is just fine. AJ is a little trashy to be having the Semis and Finals at!
