Discussion: Tampa vs. Ft. Myers tournament

|Tampa vs. Ft. Myers tournament|
We played in Tampa last weekend at the SPA Winter Worlds. There were a total of 6 teams in the 50+ divisions. Looked at the Participating Teams List for the SSUSA Winter Worlds in Ft. Myers and there are close to 25 teams in the 50+ divisioni. WHY THE BIG DIFFERENCE IN ATTENDANCE? This was our first Florida tourney and we are planning on attending more in future years, just wondering what criteria is being used by people to make the selections on which of the different tourneys to attend.

|Terry - We're out west and don't go to Florida, but here's what we think. We look at the association that runs the tournament and also what we have felt about prior tournaments. That's why we are going to the SSUSA in Las Vegas this month instead of LVSSA last month. SSUSA 'seems' better organized, like the list of teams you mentioned. No other assoc. does that, and no other one gets the schedules out early on here so we can plan our hotel and travel stuff. We also think SSUSA is more fair in ratings, and we don't get surprised when we get to a tournament with being a AAA and having a major plus or major in our bracket. They also look like they do a better job in player checking. About the only complaint, and this may be across the associations, but the prizes if we happen to do good could be better. I just hope there are like 35 60s in Las Vegas like there are in Florida. Just my thoughts.|
