Topic: Tournaments

If we could get the scores from the Rocky Mountain TOC that happened before the Northern that would be equally impressive. Thanks.

Discussion: Double Rostering

Does SSUSA have a simlar double rostering rule like SPA? (It is my understanding that essentially, a person can play in two age brackets in the same weekend - but a team can have no more than two of these players.)

We are so sorry to hear this. I don't think you can say it much better than Chick. Even though I only had the pleasure of playing with Jimmy a couple of years, he was certainly one of the best overall players - in all aspects of the game - that I have ever played with. But more importantly, it was great to be around him!

We too, extend our thoughts and prayers to his family and the Chicago Bobcats team members.

Discussion: SPA Dalton

It was the end of each day you could view the scores. This not only helps people at the tournament, who may have returned to their hotel or gone out to dinner.... to know what's going on without driving back to the ballpark...but was also fun to follow when you are not even at the tournament.

Still not sure what happened at the Midwest with 65's ending earlier in the week.

Discussion: Western NATIONALS or qualifier format???

This is the second time I tried to post this:

Maybe I am missing something....but with a tournament as prestigious as the Western Nationals and the chance to play in the National Championship game I have a concern about the 55/60 formatt.

It is a real possibility that the two 55 Major teams may not play each other -- not even in pool play! I would think for the chance to represent the Western United States in their age bracket and classification they should set them up for a best of (three??) series. (I guess you could also say there is a chance for some of the top 60's teams to be eliminated by the 55's.) However you may want to "call the odds" of this happening, when you have two teams in the 55's and three teams in the 60's, why not have them play each other in their age group in a "best of series" to see who gets to represent the West and play in the National Championship game?

I know SSUSA has the position on getting more money with a five game format. And some might be worried that the third game could become meaningless -- but from my standpoint it is no more meaningless than playing for the third loss in the loser's bracket. (Which sometimes creates weird bracketing for teams who didn't lose their first games)
