Why isn't my current registration good?
To SSUSA - I see on the Winter Nationals tournament page that all players must have a valid 2011 registration. My registration card says it is valid until 12/31/2010 (I bought it for 5 FULL years!)and should be valid for the remainder of this year. What gives? Why aren't you honoring your contract? I am sure there are MANY other players in the same boat as me.

I just received mulitple e-mails from SSUSA on this. All players that have a card that expires in December of this year will have to begin the registration process for a new 2011 (and beyond) card before Winter Nationals. They apologized for the late notice and are going to modify the expiration dates to be November - November (new year starts after World Championships)for all new cards issued. (I was going to suggest this.) A hassle on this short notice, but I will try to get the multiple players on my team to comply. My apologies for the tone of my original post but sometimes the fingers type a message and hit "Post" before the brain is fully enagaged! CW

I need this whole situation like a hole in the head. Being travel agent is more than enough. You guys are going to have to buy me beers in Fort Myers for that remark!

cw,

SSUSA is so busy with the Phoenix Worlds just completed, now the Winter Worlds in Florida, followed by the Winter Worlds in Vegas. During this transition of changing from December to November, I would think that as in the past, you could show up for player sign in with your registration form and money, and turn it in at that time. I have had that done several times in the past with my players. Should not be a big deal.

Andy, thatís baloney. Donít you remember the pressure they put on me last year to re-up my card in December. They said, through multiple emails and phone calls that it had to be done immediately, even though they later admitted it could have been done at the check in at the first tournament. And then they never sent me the card, lol. I had to go on the message board and complain about it before they finally sent it out in AUGUST.

Chris we will get you a beer in Fort Myers but since none of us drink you will have to drink alone. Where are you guys staying?

I am not effected by this, but, by this logic, shouldn't one be able to play in the TOC on his old card that expired on 12/31/10?

Seems like only 20% of the players could even find themselves in this situation (those aging up to new age groups). No where near all of those will be going to Winter Worlds, and virtually all will renew for next year anyway before Spring. How much additional revenue can this generate? I guess you might catch a couple guys who die in the meantime.:)

Since the cards indicate they expire on 12/31/10, it seems like common sense (to say nothing of good customer relations) would dictate allowing players to play on there current cards.

It would be so much easier for everyone if they just made the season Jan.1st to Dec.31st. Easier to remember cards, you think.

Thanks Rip. A beer? - we are staying where you guys usually stay at the Fairfield. Glad to see you guys are finally sobering up.

Duke - wouldn't it be great if they had a credit card machine present to swipe your card and a photo booth set up to get your head shot, just like they do for a lot of wedding receptions these days, LOL!

TexasT - it affects about half our team, anyone that has a card that expires at the end of this year. It all depends how many years you signed up for. And yes, they are going to allow players to play on their current cards.

Ken,

SSUSA must know you well by now, as your are late for most everything. :)
Such pressure Ken, you did not respond or pay too quickly anyway. When I was coaching, about 2-3 players every year just registered at the sign-in desk and paid at that time, and no one blinked an eye. See you tomorrow at batting practice.

cw,

That would be too funny! Good luck with all of this. This is what makes you want to have someone else coach/manage, as it becomes your burden to get everyone to take care of their business to get this done. I always register early to avoid all of this and get the 5 year card.

you can call the office and renew your card with a credit card number
