I can't blame guys for wanting to play while they can, but are there any "nationals" that require closed rosters? You know, dance with who brung ya.

Yes there is, as soon as the 1st game starts. Otherwise exception is the, for lack of a better word, 'Rule'.

Gary .. This is actually an "open" roster tournament. What I mean by that is, this is the first tournament of the 2013 season. Guys that have not yet turned 50 but will next year (in 2013) are eligible to play. This includes current 48 year olds who will celebrate their 49th birthdays after the tournament. Or simply put, anyone born in 1963 or earlier can suit up.

Being this is the first tournament of the new year, technically, no rosters have been set. There are no qualifiers for Winter Nationals, just like with the kids. Anyone can play which usually leads to a good showing for Senior ball.

Many of us wish they would move this to the actual "winter" months and swap this with the TOC time slot. Between now and the "real" new year, rosters can and will change. The team you have at the winter national is not always the team you have at the TOC.
Of course, not everyone qualifies for the TOC.

Mr Bill 29 -- Senior Moments is in the process of forming a 70 National team for 2013. I am sure both SSUSA and SPA will rate us as a Major. If you play in the Florida Half Century, see me at Polk County in November or call me. Shelby Simmons 407-257-5522

Note: Any other players in Florida that are interested in playing on a national 70 team, please contact me. NO SNOWBIRDS
