Discussion: LODGING FOR TOC

If your team is attending the TOC, and if you are interested and looking for a decent place to stay, call the Hyatt Place Lakeland Center. I just booked our team coming from Hawaii into the Hyatt at a rate of $85.00 per night + tax. We looked at a lot of hotels/motels on the internet and read a lot a reviews and this was a good offer for a nice place to stay. If interested contact Michael Franck in their Sales Department at: (863) 413-1122 Ext 5164. Ask for the TOC rate. Look at their web site at: www.hyattplace.com.

Discussion: Do you need a player for the Las Vegas Winter Worlds

I presently play on a 65 Major + (team has just been bumped up) and am looking to play for a team for the LV Winter Worlds only. If your team needs an extra player ,I am available. Have checked with the SSUSA office "before" placing this post and was told that as long as my team was not participating I could play with another 65 major plus team or a 60's Major team for this tourament. Coach must be willing to sign a release so that I can return to my original team for 2009 season. I live in Hawaii so any interested team would have to be within the boundaries of either Washington, Oregon or California. My name would also have to be submitted to the SSUSA office for roster approval. Please reply to this e-mail or call me at 808-346-0238.

Hawaii Seniors (55 and up) play a Makule (Senior) league using a 14" ball. Rules are the same as 12" balls and they also use the SSUSA rule book.as a guide. Hawaii State tournament for this league will be held on Kauai August 5, 6, & 7. Right now 48 teams throughout Hawaii have regustered to play. Sorry, tournament is only for Hawaii qualified league players.

Aloha Pete and audieh. Yes, I plan to be on Maui in May and am still looking for a team to play with. Will probably team up with the maui team Hailama. Hope to see both of you there. Pete, by the way, Danny fell off his roof (he thinks his 40) and is scheduled for shoulder surgery later in February on Oahu. He hopes to be back in action NLT Phoenix tournaments.

Our team, Hawaiian Pride (65AAA) will not be attending the TOC due to prolonged injuries to some team members. This is a sad day for us as we were looking forward to this STAR of all tournaments. If anyone is still looking for rooms in Winter Haven, as of this morning I cancelled 10 rooms at the Ranch House Inn & Suites. This hotel is clean, has a restaurant on property (IHOP) and convenient to fields in Winter Haven. Act FAST if you need rooms.
By the way Pete D, I see your posts daily and glad to see you are still out there hitting away. Aloha Guy.

Discussion: Looking for a team for the Western Nationals

To stattad: I apologize if I seem to be trying to get ahead of you in line. I did not realize that you had even posted a similar post. Again my apologies.
To Lecak: Mahalo for your kind words and support.
To Desert Guy: Mahalo for your detailed explanations, appreciate the info.
To all others. I did not mean for this discussion to get off on the wrong foot, wrong angle or touch some raw nerves.
I am just an ordinary ball player whose greatest desire is to play as much senior softball as possible, like a lot of other seniors out there. My wife refers to me as the perfect example of a crazed ball player. We spend a great deal of our lives around playing senior softball.
To all others who have posted to my e-mail. I have deceided to withdraw my request to join a team at the Western Nationals, as the request has set off way too much controversy with other senior players. Creating hard feelings between and among other senior ball players was not my intention at all. I will still be in Reno simply because as Lecak said, I have already purchased my ticket, rented a hotel room and rental car and the penalty to cancel the ticket alone is large. However, I will be at the games just as a fan cheering the rest of you on. To stattad I just got out of the line.
To Desert Guy and Lecak. What age , team and division do you guys play? If playing in the Western Nationals would like to be a fan at your games!

Discussion: Looking for a team for the Western Nationals

Will be in Reno July 16-23 and and looking to play for a team in the Western Nationals. Our team, the Modesto Blackhawks had planned to play in the 55 AAA division but due to unforseen circumstances some of our players cannot make the trip. I also play on the Hawaian Pride team 65 AAA (formerly Hawaii Kanaono) and the Hawaii Kanaono Makakilo team 60 AAA. All teams will not be playing in this tournament. I play L field, LC and a pretty decent second base. My batting average runs around 700. For boundary purposes, I live in Hawaii so I can only play with teams from Hawaii, California, Washington, and Oregon. I have my up to date card, bags are packed, ticket in hand, just need a team to play for. If you need a player contact Guy at 808-337-9978 (h) or 808-346-0238 (C), or reply to this e-mail. Aloha Guy.

There is a 60's tournament scheduled in Hawaii on the island of Kauai , November 7-10, 07. Most SSUSA rules will apply with some slight deviations to accommodate the players and the Kauai Senior Softball Association. SSUSA approved bats may be used. The tournament will be OPEN. You can combine 60's players from all play divisions ,and you can have one player on the field 55 and over. This is a great fun tournament and a great place to end the year.

Discussion: Need Snowbirds Response

SPA WORLD COMMENTS: There were two players that were granted the " snowbird " exemption rule that played in the 60's major + division. Both of these players were approved to play by the owner of SPA. The problem is that neither one of these two own, live or work in theie " snowbird " states. Their claim for " snowbird " status that they were at some time going to move.... one lives in Florida and played on a Texas based team..... and the other lives in Colorado and plays on a California based team. It gets better, both of these players are ex-teammates with the owner of SPA..... and one of these two playes on the California team where the VP of the SPA playes. I believe the next step to clear this mess created by the gods of senior softball..... is to stick a lawsuit up their asses.

Discussion: boundaries

Alright! With all of the discussions on boundaries, somebody tell me where is the Hawaii boundary. Do we consider Washington and Oregon as our boundary> Hawaii is putting out some pretty good players and teams but not all Hawaii teams can afford the expense of competing in multiple tournaments. The airfare alone is a major factor. However, there are several Hawaii players that would like to compete in tournaments with teams not from Hawaii, but those teams hesitate to pick-up Hawaii players because we don't know what exactly is our boundary. I play for the Hawaii 55's and the Hawaii 60's normally left and left center. If Bob Mitchell or Terry Hennesy reads this perhaps they will answer.
