Survey
I received a survey form from SPA that I thought was worth the effort in filling it out. It covered a variety of issues:
home run limits, max runs/inning, tournament format, pitch count, ratings and etc. I believe that it is important that senior softball association provide an outlet for player's feedback. Just my two cents worth on this subject.

Thanks Jack, you would think that the Texas State Championship would be played at a first rate complex. Here are some of the comments I read online about the complex: It's $3 to get in, which is annoying. But you do get a drink token . . . but I don't really want a drink when I'm about to make the long trek back to the suburbs. I suspect it's to keep some of the riff raff out as the Sportsplex isn't in the greatest part of town. The lot is half paved, and half not. The paved side is almost always full. I wish they would use the entrance fee to pave the rest of the lot, because not all of us drive big honking trucks that can handle accidentally falling into the massive pot hole in the poorly lit lot. I do like that they've now added a big watch tower over the parking lot, which makes the laides (me) feel somewhat safer.

the spa survey was a nice thing to get there was some input by the players who play not someone telling you how it will be ask the players what they want let them decide counts homeruns and runs per innings if we have some say so then the complaining may be less because we set some of the rules

I Just filled out my SPA survey last night. It was nice of them to ask for OUR (PLAYERS) opinion. Yea, I'm glad they asked me and yes it was a first for me to be asked by any Association to comment on its upcoming Rules. I really like that SPA.

Apparently many/most of you are unaware that SSUSA sent out a letter that requested players/managers input on their rules. It was sent 3-4 weeks prior to the rules committee meetings. I'm guessing that the feedback received was useful in working through the issues.
SPA has been doing this for several years now and it is nice to know that your opinions do matter.

Capt.

Are you referring to Softball World in Euless? Big League Dreams in Mansfield has a great facility that charges $3.00 to get in with a token at the bar. However the bar is inside with air conditioning, TV's with all kinds of drinks, beer and mixed. The fields are first class to say the least. Should look into availibity there. The complex is in sort of a remoter area though, but I haven't been down that way in a while, so I don't know what might have been built up in the area.

Hey Bill,
If apparently many/most were unaware that SSUSA sent out a letter 3-4 weeks before the rules meeting, then apparently they didn't do a very good job of sending it out nor did they include the total membership. If SPA can do it, there's no reason they all can't do it. If associations are really concerned about the players or customers input, they should be willing to provide the opportunity to all for input. In todays world of social media and technolgy, there's really no excuse not to. What else do we pay our yearly dues for?

Al33:
I'm not sure who Bill is but I presume that you're responding to my post.
My point was/is that the 'many/most were unaware' referred to just the folks that posted on here. This message board is not a fair sampling of the total membership.
I received the letter via email and I passed it on to 25+ people and asked that they pass it on. I know that others did the same. I cannot speak for SSUSA in terms of many members responded or even received info about the rules committee meeting.
SPA has been sending a survey to me for 2-3 years now (via email).
