It looks like the men's 55's & all the woman's teams are slated for this weekend. After that the men's 50's & 60's divisions square off next weekend.

Why isn't there a 40+ division?

I spoke to George Moreno SS-USA and he said there is not that many teams around Southern California, is tht true?

Actually if you take the age factor out that, there as many as in northern CA, but if you limit it to 40+ that are some, but play primatily u-trip and nsa.

Personally, I don't feel the 40-45's should be in "seniors". But their looking for more money, and this is one way. I've even seen where they now want 35's in... next it will be any age. ASA take over coming... A good idea, but their not focused on "seniors' like this is "supposed" to be...
Do a search for tournaments, their are a slew of then in So CAl. I'd be there, but the damn time in traffic is the problem. It's easier to go 250 miles north than 250 south.

Taits I will disagree with you strongly on your 40-45 point. This division is an entry point into the 50 group. Alot of 47-48-49 year olds need this division to stay physically sharp. It has grown very well for SSUSA there were I think 15 teams in Phoenix which is probably double what was in Seattle. Take my team from several years ago that team has put 6 or 7 guys into the Major/Major Plus pool, which everyone seems to agree needs players. I intend on supporting this age group in whatever capacity I can. Good luck to you. By the way Cabrones I'm aware of at least 5 teams in your area none are league teams though exactly where are you located So Cal covers alot of territory.

Norm,

I'll answer part of the question you asked before this thread went off in another direction. Gusto 55's, Outlaws, Over the Edge, Palm Spring Heat, and Double Nickels in 55 AAA.

Hey Ken, thank you for that, it is off the subject a bit, thats ok we can go in a different direction:) I agree with him about the 40 and 45 not being Senior, we don't get a seniors discount until we are 55 so how can they be seniors?

So how are you, haven't seen you in a while look forward to seeing you and Mike Andy and the guys this weekend, i talked to Bob says he will out of town, to bad we could get some good ole Chicago style pizza :)

I see you guys are in the AAA, come up and play with us big dogs:) :)

You have a good day, and see you on Saturday, can't wait.


Oh i see you have palm Springs heat down, i think they are in our division.

Ken,
I just replied to a post that is there. Does Larry (Gusto) now have both a 55 & 60's ?

Lecak,
Still, they are not SENIORS. They can keep in shape the same way we all have done in the past BEFORE the younger generation became a part of this. They can play elsewhere.

Maybe all the 40 somethings are all still stuck in traffic down there. ( 8

I think that age group has to plan a lot more to make the time/schedule commitments work out.

I agree though - that's not "Senior" softball. They haven't paid their dues, they've hardly got their training wheels and braces off their teeth.............

They probably should be classified as "Masters" at 40's like we did in volleyball and other sports. But it's also easier to capture the new market by not renaming.

Maybe we can get a team list started now.

Paradise Chev., 60 Majors will be there.

I was down last week and at least some of us got bp in before last weekend was cancelled.

Norm,

Youíre right, I guess itís the Las Vegas Heat, not Palm Springs. All I know is that itís some kind of heat, lol. Unfortunately, as Bob will attest to, youíre not going to find anything that resembles pizza in Southern California. They donít even know how to cut it properly. See you Saturday.

Taits:

Iím not sure about Gusto 55s. Last year they called themselves something like ďSo Cal Gusto 55ísĒ or something like that. The team in this tournament is the So Cal 55s, and I assumed it was them.

Ken, Yep, same good group of guys. But I think they are just 60's now & not two different teams. Maybe they just assed the "So Cal" to clarify location.
I asked cause you posted 55's. I played against them when they were 55's.
Good luck at the TOC
