Discussion: Colorado player exploring opportunities in adjoining states
The last two years I've played on the Scrap Iron Major Plus 60s team, a very good team having qualified for the TOC four times this year. I would like to see the team get better but some on the team wish to go the other way. Unless I get an exception to the rule so I can continue to play in Colorado, my only other option with the rules in place in SS USA is to seek a major or major plus team in an adjoining state. I'm a high on base % player, .700 + , play outfield, usually LC and still have good wheels at 62 years of age. Over the years I have made a number of all Tourney, American and World teams. I know there are major teams in NM, AZ and KS, maybe others. At this point, I'm trying to explore all options. Let me know if you might have a need for someone like me. My name is Greg Broeckelman. Email is email@example.com. Phone # is 719-622-8235.

Discussion: Who will be in Fort Myers?
Scrap Iron 60s Major + will be coming and for Spicer, we are playing at the Noth Collier Sports Complex in Naples if that helps you with the rooms.

Discussion: Western Worlds NSA
Hey Einstein, it was good to chat with you again in Modesto before we paired off against each other for the THIRD time this year in a best of two out of three on Sunday.
I missed Mankato but Scrap Iron 60s has played in FIVE tournaments this year where only two Major Plus teams showed up plus one that we were the only Major Plus team, We're now looking at cutting waaay back next year and attending only those tournaments that appear to be well attended. Our players pay their own travel expenses for the most part and we see no reason to spend our money to go play one other team. I know I'm voicing the same concerns that others have but it's become ridiculous this year. Even if the different associations combined Major and Major Plus I'm not sure we'd see many more teams at a number of these tournaments.

The Scrap Iron 60s Major Plus team is coming. We hope there will be a better turnout than most of the tournaments we've been attending. Two teams playing each other the best of two out of three is getting old.

Discussion: Improve the Tournament of Champions please
Playing with the Scrap Iron 60s top division team out of Colorado, we would agree that having the TOC in December works better for ALL teams across the country than having it in February. We qualified to go last year and are qualified to go again this year but when we quit playing from about December until March the rust really sets into these old bodies and gives teams that play year round in the warmer climates a definite advantage when a tournament of this stature is played in February. Even in December we would welcome the TOC being played in a warmer climate but this would then be our last tournament of the year before we hibernate for the winter.
I also agree that this tournament should not be watered down just to try to get more teams in the tournament.

Discussion: SSWS Qualifier - Palm Springs - May 5-6
I play with the Scrap Iron 60s Major Plus team out of Colorado. We're signed up for this tourney but are wondering who else, especially in the 60 age bracket, is planning to attend.
