    Maybe the 38th District might reconsider having the 10th Region Tournament somewhere besides Mason County?

    Harrison County HS to Mason County HS is 55 minutes.
    Harrison County HS to Montgomery County HS is 53 minutes.

    Nicholas County HS to Mason County HS is 35 minutes.
    Nicholas County HS to Montgomery County HS is 37 minutes.

    Pendleton County HS to Mason County HS is 54 minutes.
    Pendleton County HS to Montgomery County HS is 79 minutes.

    Robertson County HS to Mason County HS is 29 minutes.
    Robertson County HS to Montgomery County HS is 62 minutes.

    I don't understand the logic here at all. Harrison saves 2 minutes on the trip to Mt. Sterling and the other three schools have longer trips time wise.

    Harrison and Nicholas are the same distances to each location. Maybe Pendleton won't want to continue playing at Mason County and will choose to drive an additional 25 minutes for the change in venue.

    Robertson is the only school close enough to Mason to truly say no, but it is only 33 minutes more for them to Montgomery.

    Some of you make this distance out to be a monumental task.

    Some do.

    The 37th district teams have an almost 2 hour trip to Montgomery County just as the 40th district teams have heading towards Campbell County, Scott, etc.

    We deal with it. The other districts should, too.

    The negativity from the 39th district crowd is ridiculous. The 10th Region Tournament will be held at Montgomery County (or GRC, eventually) every 4 years.

    Yeah, with this GRC Reporter logic others could say the folks at Paris and Bourbon County might as well vote to have it at Mason County since it's only an extra 15-20 mins. vs. the drive to Montgomery County.

    Maybe a new 10th region alignment is needed. MoCo and GRC out and bring back Fleming and add Lewis.

    Just a thought but it would cut down on travel time quite considerably.

    Think about it. A person has to drive through two 16 region counties to get to MoCo. (Fleming and Bath)

    Seems to make more sense to have the representatives from the 37th and 40th meet in Maysville rather than one travel to the other.

    Perhaps the more important issues are(in this order):
    1)Popcorn
    2)Where better for the other schools in the region to gather to cheer against the Royals, than their home floor.

    The whole home court advantage thing is overrated in my opinion. Does it help? Possibly not sure. An argument can be made I guess.
    My thoughts to a tee.

    However, as long as the district rotation determines the site, I have no problem with the physical site as long as it can accommodate everyone who wants to attend.

    You can tell that the regional tournament is almost upon us.

    This comes up quite often and makes some sense from a geographic standpoint, but I don't see it happening.

    Yeah, it would never happen. Fleming and Lewis like their chances better in the 16th than they would have in the 10th, just like Campbell, Brossart and Scott like their chances better in the 10th than they would have in the 9th.

    Fine by me if Paris and Bourbon County agree to it, but I believe that most of us in the southern part of the 10th Region are tired of traveling to Mason County 3 out of 4 years.

    Paris High School to Mason County High School is 52 minutes.
    Paris High School to Montgomery County High School is 39 minutes.

    Bourbon County High School to Mason County High School is 55 minutes.
    Bourbon County High School to Montgomery County High School is 41 minutes.

    Just place Clark and Montgomery in the 16th and move Fleming and Lewis to the 10th.

    I like that idea.

    Float it with the KHSAA.
