    Thanks LB;
    Now, is the age limit of 40, is it just a standard practice or is it part of any rules by USAB??

    Quite a few senior master tournaments start at age 35.
    I think it's up to the tournament organizer.

    hmm. thank you;
    For the dallas open this past week-end, we had to take up some heat from the 'real' seniors(40+) saying that the age limit for the seniors should be 40 & not 35.
    So, I was wondering if there was a rule that actually stated what the age limits should be.
    Well, I guess not!!!
