Discussion: Las Vegas ball Sept. 26th to Sept. 28th/2014

NO as it relates to individual players seeking to join a team for the World Masters ... Teams, other than Senior Women (50+ and older) and Men's Major+ (any age) and 80+ and 85+, must play in a Qualifier to enter the event ...

Subject to pre-existing "numbers" on the qualifying roster of a team looking to add players, that team can add up to player #12 from "same age/same (or lesser) skill level" and up to player #15 with "next older age/same (or lesser) skill level" so long as, of course, the player(s) are otherwise eligible as to age and residency ... Also, players don't have to qualify to play Major+ ...

Sarah is the Budget Account Executive for the SSUSA rental car fleet ... We just spoke with her, at 3:00 PM PDT, on Wednesday, 9/17/14 and were told "...we have plenty of cars..." ...

Discussion: Fairness in Ratings

Because ... The ONLY automatic rating increase for ANY team, other than Major+, results from winning either [1] the LVSSA/SSUSA World Masters Championships, [2] the SPA World Championships or [3] the ISA Senior World Series ... ALL other rating changes are based upon performance criteria review or the granting of a properly and formally submitted Rating Appeal ... The single most common public misconception is, undoubtedly, the mistaken belief that winning any TOC Qualifier, or the TOC itself, results in an automatic rating increase ... It does NOT ...

Sept. 14, 2014 - Bella911 - 2 posts - Hip replacement • Thanks JD and Jack Rabbit, your feed back gave me encouragement. The Dr. doesn't recommend softball as they consider it a high impact sport. I am currently on shots but want to get this done and start rehab all winter. If anyone has more information let me know. Thanks again.
