Does this organization still require an individual wanting to play on an 80 team to be 80 years old that year to play 80? SPA allows a 78 year old to play 80 and it seems unfortunate to me that at 78, I will have to wait two years to play on a team registered with SSUSA. How many more healthy years do I have left? It`s not like a 65 team that has relatively unlimited number of players to choose from. Is this organization considering a change in that age requirement?

I can't answer for them, but my opinion is your are closer to 80 than 75 so you should play 80. Just smug the year of birth on your drivers license a little, they may not notice. :)
