Hey guys, have some more faith in them. I'd bet their out soon. Dave always posts when they are done. soomer than most of the tourneys out there. But as you all know teams mess them up after seeing them, and for one reason or another pull out or even get into the tourney, and they have to be redone all over for that bracket.

TAITS, we have faith, we're just spoiled! We want
instant gratification. We thought more teams would
have responded to the question of Who is going.

Winter Worlds:
Kansas City Barons 50+ team update - I received a call from the SSUSA office yesterday and was told my team would have to play in the major division effective immediately due to having won the ISA world (50+AAA) in August. We should have been notified of this decision at that time or the decision should have been made at the end of this year. Why wait until 1 week before a 2007 tournament????? Had we been notified of this change earlier, we would not have participated. We would have re-tooled over the winter for next season knowing we wouel have to play major. Although it's too late to back out now, we will be coming. However, we will be missing 3 of our 4 home run hitters and would struggle to compete in the AAA division in this tournament, let alone major. This whole thing is one bad joke and really sours my opinion of the SSUSA organization.

Hey Brett...we were moved to Majors last year and played the whole year at the major level. We decided not to revamp our team because we are all good friends and took our lumps to say the least with an astounding .382 winning percentage. We were moved back to AAA this year.

Brett, it looks like your team was one of several that the summit changed the rating on November 2 including winners of NSA and a few other non-SSWC or SPA tournaments. I have always wondered why these happen so far after the tournament itself. I hope that you and your team play well regardless of the circumstances. There are a few other interesting scenarios when you look at the ratings changes to some of the other teams included.

NancyAllen: Moves up do not always happen late in the year. I know of many expamles where teams were moved up during the year. My team was bumped up to major last year following a 4th place finish in a SPA tournament in Omaha, NE. The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place AAA teams were not bumped up. All four of us finished the tournament with identical records (4-2). I had to petition to go back down to AAA, which took several months

Another example: KC Avengers (55+AAA team) won the 2005 USSSA world tournament and were planning to go to the SSWC tournament in Phoenix. They were bumped to major immediately following, so they cancelled their trip to Phoenix

Brett, you are right; it does not make sense to me on when these things happen sometimes. There was a team in Dalton that applied to be moved down in June and got moved down two weeks before Dalton. I was told that the reason was because one of the members of the summit had been ill, or it would have been approved before. Of course the rest of the story is that they won that division and got moved back up. They were undefeated, but did I feel that they belonged at the higher rating? Probably not. Your message just prompted me to look at who else got their rating changed (you can sort on the column). I hope that you do well because it is a frustrating and expensive situation. At least try to play hard and have fund. Being on the right side of the dirt is always a good start. Take care.

Thanks. We'll give it our best shot. Bottom line, a men's team can not be competitive in the major divsion without true home run hitters.

O.K. The Winter Worlds Schedule is posted. I can open the Participating Teams list, however, cannot open any of the Game Schedules and Brackets! Anyone else having this problem?

Dude I'm no computer expert but unless there is an underline under what you're trying to open there is no link. My guess is they have not uploaded to their server and the link has not been created yet. Look at the Winter National and you will notice everything is underlined and you can open it.

OREO,
Changed my mind, I'll be there, but if your with Christian Bros 60's we'll be crossing each other,. I'll be w\Blackhawks 55's at Hollywood park Fri and Doc R on Sat-Sun. Crhistian Bros is only 60AAA Team I noticed playing from TX.
I'll be either P, 1'st or 3rd. Maybe a DH here or there.
