Atlantics note:

• The schedule had to be readjusted several times due to the aftermath of games having been rained out on the first day of play because of tropical storm Gabrielle. Organizers managed to get all of the games in, although things were still a little soggy.

• Some ball players had to contend with a bit of a distraction in the sky on the final day of Atlantics as acts in the Yarmouth International Airport Air Experience took to the air for an air show. Kids still concentrated on the game, but you could see them steal a few glances upwards to see what was going on there as well.

• Kudos to the organizers of Atlantics. After the Yarmouth team was awarded the championship banner a CF-18 flew overhead. Okay, it was just a coincidence from the air show happening near by, but still, it was kind of neat.
