Does anyone know of some inexpensive or free software to convert documents into PDF files. I need to email flyers, schedules, etc. to many team captains and players. PDF files work best. Any suggestions?

Free / Open Source www.openoffice.org and its File/Export as PDF option.

Best application that I know of is "Primo PDF". Do a search for it.

Basically, it's a printer driver that creates PDFs. You just install the software, select PrimoPDF as your printer, then print your document and it gets converted to a PDF.

Simplest free solution I've ever seen.

What does this have to do with adult leagues and tournaments?

I needed the information to help with coordinating adult leagues. Maybe that wasn't clear in my original post.

Primo PDF is the bomb. OpenOffice does okay with it too, but Primo is more compact, works with any document type, and you have several neat options for optimizing it.

Another vote for CutePDF. It's lightweight and works cross-applications, similar to PrimoPDF... it's essentially a printer driver emulator.

You have to pay $$$ for Acrobat. Reader doesn't do anything but view.

There are several 'free' pdf creators out there... go to either:
www.tucows.com
or
zdnet.com
