The Oregon Crab won Reno and Worlds this year in the 65 AAA classification. They are a very good team and a good group of guys. The Crab were rated as a 65 Major in March 0f 2015. Is this a TYPO ? Is this a different groups of Crabs ? Can SSUSA staff provide some clarification ? Happy New Years !!!!!!!!!!!!

this may be a re-post, I posted once before and never saw on this site
