Men's 50 AAA teams: 62
Men's 50 AA Teams: 8
Men's 65 AAA Teams: 23
Men's 65 AA Teams: 19
I am not convinced that AA rated team (ratings are based on factors that determined by a team's ability to compete) are rec teams, that is verified by the number of 65'a AA that are competing in Vegas.

There is a 12-member Ratings Advisory Board that provides input to the National Ratings Committee for each rating cycle ... That Board is comprised of Managers and Tournament Directors from all regions of the country, including one from Texas ... The structure is already exactly as you proposed .
I would suggest that all SSUSA reps within their region be allowed to vote when a team appeals their rating.

The ratio of Mens' 50's AAA teams (60) to Mens' 50's AA teams (7), that ratio does not compute. SSUSA needs a ratings committee
that includes regional tournament directors and managers to rectify this.

Discussion: San Marcos,Tx

Labor Day Classic, San Marcos, TX, 65's. 70's, & 75's played on Thursday and Friday, 8-28 & 29. The rain came on Thursday evening, the late games
had to be cancelled, resumed on Friday. Overall the
tournament was ran well, we will be back next year.
Suggestion:
1) On Thursday only two (2) fields had games scheduled, add a third field to the rotation, make life much easier for us old guys, and for the TD.
2) Adhere to a seed game format, play all seed before playing bracketed games.
Our first game was seed game, 2nd game was a bracketed game, and our third game was a seed game.

Discussion: toughest position

Player/Manager has to be in the top three toughest
positions, trying to convince the wife to manage, some of the players believe that would be an improvement.

Chris, you always put on a good tournament, the
Rattlers will be back. Our 65+ bracket had five (5) teams, one team with a 3-1 record, three (3) teams that were 2-2, and one (1) team that was 1-3, the games were competitive and good sportsmanship.

I like the way SPA does it, they post team rosters on their Team Ratings Website Page.

Discussion: Northeast Team Ratings

Correction:
How much influence does your regional tournament
director's report have on Ratings? After each SSUSA tournament we have played in, the TD turns in a report to Sacramento. As a manager and player, I would like to see the report. There are multiple factors that go into rating a team, the regional tournament director's report should carry the most weight when determining a team's rating.

LP, our team playing in your tournament is contingent on whether or not we can show up at your ranch in Sweeney Switch for beer and bbq.

We have some SSUSA and SPA sanctioned tournaments that will have a gold and a silver division. If teams after playing their seeding games are placed in the gold or silver division, irregardless
of ratings, what is the purpose of having ratings?
