Discussion: SSUSA ID CARD question

Donnie, I'm still playing with Omen. I'm sure GSF will be a handful.

You guys really crushed us in the NA Championship game. Also, congrats on the 65 M+ championship. It was good to see all my "old" friends from the East even though the whooping we took was not fun!

Looking forward to what y'all do next year with James and Larry moving up with you.

Ron, It's not like Dave Dowell, et. al., don't know you! As long as you "youngsters" (rising 65s) are nice to your "elders", all will be well! Look forward to playing GSF in Phoenix!

Discussion: Seeding

local, there WAS a three-way tie in the 65 M+. Three teams were 2-1 and the seeds were determined by runs allowed per SSUSA rules. Turn 2 got the 1 seed, Florida Thunder the 2 seed and Omen the 3 seed.

Looks like teams that got re-rated from Major Plus down to Major returned to the top again. Welcome back to Major Plus.

Gonzalez beat our 60 Major team both times we played this year. I know most of their players and said they were Major caliber all along. Their win just goes to prove that. Welcome to the Major level!

I noticed in the 60 Majors that Ryan's Way was scheduled to play the Hawaii Masters at Arroyo Grande on Friday at 3:30 on Field 6 AND also play Top Gun Softball on Field 8 AT THE SAME TIME! Unless they've got a split squad that will be difficult!

Discussion: Texas Half Century tounaments

LP, That was the problem in the 50s, 55s and 60s. There was only one Major-rated team in each of those divisions. In the 50s it was Lonestar, in the 55s Texas Legends and in the 60s Texas Makules.
Keith put Makules with the younger guys (55s) even-up and the 60AAAs and we spotted the 5 runs.
I don't see that as a reason NOT to attend a tournament unless a team is simply afraid of playing an older one-level higher rated team. That does not make sense to me. When I played Major, we played against M+ quite frequently and took our 5 runs and tried to win. Occassionally, we did but usually thanks to the 5 runs. We never declined to play anyone higher-rated or not. I like to think it helped us when we did play very good teams in our own age bracket and our skill level. JMO.

Discussion: Vegas hotels

Check this website under "Tournaments" "2012 Events" and click on the SSUSA/LVSSA Masters Championships. There is a long list of hotels that SSUSA has set up deals with. I've stayed at the Eastside Cannery and Palace Station before and they are fine hotels to base from to play in this tournament. Bear-in-mind, all the "Station" hotels have something like a $14.99 per day upcharge for a "resort charge" or some similar name. Good luck.

Discussion: Texas Half Century tounaments

LP, We played a 6-team division consisting of 4-60 teams - 1 Major (Makules) and 3-AAA (Dallas Spurs, Team 454 and the Sultans) as well as 2-55 AAA teams (Dallas Spurs 55s and Texas Classics). I think the 60 AAA was "won" by the Dallas Spurs 60s since, I think, they were the highest finishing 60AAA team. Double L 10

Discussion: Texas Half Century tounaments

LP, Texas Makules won the 60 Major; Texas Classics won the 55 AAA. I'm pretty sure Lonestars won the 50s but I did not see the end of their Championship game.

Teams that won the Winners Bracket finals on Sunday morning found out that there would be no "if" game if the Losers Bracket champion beat them in the Championship game scheduled for 1:20 Sunday afternoon. That was done due to league committments at 3PM Sunday. Luckily, I don't think that came into play - it did not affect the Makules team.

Discussion: Manassas, Va.

garyheifner, I could not agree more with your observation about moving up to a new age group! If you don't win in the first 2-3 years, you are on the downslope of your new age bracket and the "youngsters" will be all over you! There are a few exceptions like the Florida Legends who played 65 M+ last year with almost all their players 70 or older and did very well. Most of us are not that blessed.

Unbelievable! I just saw Steve a few days ago in Aurora!
My fervent prayers are with the Simmons family during this terrible time and I pray that the Great Physician touch Steve and bring him back healthy to his loved ones and friends.

Ruth Realty won the 60 Major and Omen won the 65 Major Plus. Ruth put on a gut-check Sunday, playing 4 games in a row and winning 3 with several players hobbling or suffering from the heat.

Discussion: Combining Major and Major Plus

Bruce, I've played with and against almost all the Turn 2 players over the years. Even though I know very well how they hit and where they hit, they still get the job done almost every time. And adding Pete Smith and John Davide to an already great team just makes them that much more formidable. I'm sure Omen will have our hands full when we see them in Vegas in October.

Discussion: Combining Major and Major Plus

But Harry, Turn 2 is an OLD 60 team! Next year they move to 65 and beat up on us older guys! I suspect you'll be seeing them in some of the qualifiers in SSUSA and SPA next year and wind up playing them even up in those due to the 5-year age difference supposedly negating the skill level difference (Major Plus vs Major).
