Info on a team
Does anyone know of a team called Travel-Lodge out of Indiana? They are entered in the LVSSA 55aaa World. They don't seem to have a 55 ranking.

A team named Travel-Lodge from Indiana placed 2nd in the 50 Major division at the LVSSA Worlds just last weekend. Am guessing they must also have a 55AAA team.

Played them in the SPA Nationals this summer in Plano. They tied with Grimes Trucking for 5th place in the 55 Majors. Good ball club.

This is a pickup team from two or three different teams. They will be a very good AAA because most played major ball all year. Another case of tournament directors allowing pickup teams in their so called national tournaments. National tournaments should be for teams who play by the rules and tournaments that allow pickup teams and players should be called cheater tournaments so honest teams will know what they are getting in to.

Damn, I was reading this and other posts and realize just how stupid my team is. We qualify in
June with a roster of 16 and make no changes to it all year and then go to the World. How the heck can we compete with these %$#@&*% teams. We better get a lot more imaginative.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, everyone for the feed back. I've asked the T.D.'s to read these posts. We'll see what happens.
On Sept.30th there was an action taken by the ratings board, moving a 55 AAA team to Major after an investigation. So it seems the board is working. I think if players and mgrs give the board feedback on questionable teams they will look into them.

Will these changes be reflected in Phoenix? That would be great. But PLEASE check the rosters.

I suggest the tournament directors let teams know ahead of time that they will be going against the rules and allow pickups for their tournament. Then you know where you stand and won't be surprised when you see teams with illegal pick up players.

Good job guys on being more aware. It is a shame to let teams play in the wrong classification. It ruins it for everyone and lessens the achievement of winning a ring.
