2011 Regeions
If SSUSA does go to regions how will it affect all of the teams?
Also why does the mid atlatic and the notheast has the smallest area to choose from? Some of the other regeions out west HAVE huge areas to choose from.
Is the Mid Atlantic and NE being punished? This is a small area to choose from

If you live on the wrong side of the line you will need to find a new team..I'm from Ky and have been playing with a Ohio team for five years--I will now have to find a team in Tn, Ga, Al

I would think that it is based on number of people in a certain area, not on miles. The Mid Atlantic has tons of people compared to out west.

More likely based upon number of teams.
But it will change structure of some teams that for sure. Unless the exception to exception & snow bird stuff effects it in other ways. Maybe even "grandfathering" in players.
Lets see, I'm sure we all have relatives in other states with whom we could "move to" & use their address for a bit, say 3 mos or so...
It will get interesting.

If they go to regions they need to do away with the snowbird rule. This is about the most crooked rule out there. If you allow the snowbird with the new regions at least allow other teams to have a pick up.
I talked with SPA and they said they would keep their rules the same for now. At least there are other options if the new rules don't work out.

Agreed, the snowbird rule is a joke!

Was at the summit and Fran said there was a work left on the regions before 2011 she did say there may be grandfathering of team that have played together. So there will be more news coming. We talked long time so I hoping all will work out for alot of teams

Thanks for the update. That will be nice to know. But in the mean time we might just make other plans in where we can play.
See you in Dalton,

Ron,
I understand it will hurt most of the major plus teams. All we can do is voice our concerns.

Will the new rules help a few but punish many? SSUSA hopefully will avoid this from happening by allowing grandfathering for existing teams.
