Don't know if anyone else saw the "Marietta CRUSH" trailer blocking the two handicapped parking spaces right beside the entry gates to the lower fields at lost Mountain today but there were no more handicapped spaces available when we entered @ 2 pm. The trailer was still there at 7:30 when I left. Tons of visitors from out of state passed by it. There's better ways to boost your org's name recognition than by occupying handicap spaces that could be used by grandparents or those with disabilities.

I have seen some trailers taking up huge chunks of parking before but this takes the cake. Since when does being inconsiderate qualify as a handicap? If that was the case, most ball parks would have more blue parking spaces than normal spaces. These guys (or gals) are teaching their kids to only follow the rules that are convenient for you. Seems to be the American way these days, but I digress!

I still laugh at teams that need a trailer. Seriously, players bring their gear, and coaches bring a few buckets of balls and some nets.

And notice you don't see Atlanta Vipers, EC Bullets or Georgia Impact trailers. It's usually the B- teams that think their big time by pulling in with their big rigs.

Probably shouldn't have taken up 2 spaces but I know the coach and he is disabled and has a handicap sticker on the Jeep. He parks in handicap because of that, not to show off a trailer.

Hey Chalkline
Not sure what team your with as it appears that you like so many others on this web site.
Are just hiding behind your name.
I have a trailer. Ga Impact stewart has a trailer and there are a few Viper trailers.
So I would say A teams have them as well.
I keep all my teams equipment in the trailer and with water gator aid etc. guess what my truck is imperfect condition why because I don’t have to put it in my car or truck. It takes me 5 min to hookup my trailer and go.
Now I agree what this team did was wrong and shame on tournament director for allowing him to stay there.

But here is the cool part see my screen name Ap18uheafcoach I don’t hide behind my screen name can you say the same Mr Chalkline.

Ron walling
Atlanta Priemer Walling

Sorry I just can’t stand folks who troll these boards.

I looked and the only "CRUSH" team that was registered for the entire legacy tournament was from Indiana.

We, GaP, also have a trailer. We use it when we travel when most of the parents/girls fly to the location. One person drives the trailer (usually me) and carries all the team gear so they don't have to check it in @ the airline.

There was a similar incident at Twin Creeks. A Corvette, that had a car cover on it, with a handicap tag. Someone reported it and the owner literally "jogged" out to move it eventually.

There are definitely people who take advantage. I've known at least one of those, unfortunately. They know someone who helps them get a tag so they can park close even though they'r perfectly healthy. Not cool at all. That said, not all disabilities that justify a space are visible, and it is sometimes not the driver but a passenger. So maybe the guy jogging out was the spouse or friend or parent of a person with a disability. I try not to make assumptions.

I see this at the parks all the time. I saw a certain mom with a handicap placard park in a handicap spot then get out and walk to the field in her high heels, meanwhile a man in a wheelchair with no legs had to get dropped off because there were no open spots. She does this at every tournament I see her team play. At the end of the day these spots are for people that have trouble walking. If the placard is for your passenger, then drop them off and park somewhere else. Even if you have a placard but can walk with no problems, then park somewhere else. If you need to park in a handicap spot because you truly can't walk, then maybe someone else can take the trailer so you are not taking up two spots.
