Ideas for Next Season

Alright; let's hear some innovative ideas for next year (2007) that will help our little series to grow.

I'll go first:

1. Putting up the banners once again, a small task, but one that makes a difference. It makes the place look organized. If the exp is going to be at (for example) rocky mount, it shouldn't look like every other weekend at rocky mount. A big exp banner just to remind us of whats going on would be a simple, but positive thing.

ok......one or two other venues...i know it sounds stupid to have it any other place but rmpc but i mean what about findin a place in tn, maybe virginia, idk make the dive a little less for some people and make people that live there have to drive to an event, it will show who truly wants it and i bet bring teams from whatever area you have it to the venue.AS LONG AS THERE IS MORE ADVERTISEMENT. you gotta spend money on advertisement to make money.

Man, I just can't see driving any great distance to play against only 8 or 10 other teams. To be honest, I doubt we would have played EXP if it hadn't been right in our backyard because there just wasn't enough draw.

My suggestion for making it better next year is to advertise the mess out of the series. National forums, local forums, maybe some national print stuff... In order to get more teams, which will make the whole thing better, there has to be more advertisement.

definately, you can't just rely on the same old teams to show up you gotta bring in new ones each and every time.

being a feeder series isnt what you really think it is ,Its just a matter of paying the NPPL money which comes out of the ID fees,Ill speak more on it if you like ,I just want to get all the teams back that said there were problems that they did not like ,I do have ownership in the EXP this coming year ,But i would like to think that last year we (jerry & diane,Mantisfactory team)Took the EXP in the right track with no ownership but some advice,This coming year will be the best with all comments taking into consideration,We have control over website,ID,s,Host hotels,fields,layout,Venue locations,reffing staff,schedules,etc,I hope that alot of teams give Us the support that we will be given you this next season


Thanks jerry

Cash and tropies for prizes instead of goods. It gives a team a chance to at least make their entry fee back and some dinner money for the road.

Media coverage would be good. Teams have a responsibility to their sponsors to get their products out there.

That's good news Jerry. We are considering coming back next year. Part of the decision will depend on player classification. We played two EXP events but aren't ready to bump to novice yet.

We would like to stay rookie next year.

Thanks for everything Jerry,

Most def. EXP need more teams. More teams makes the entry fee worth its wild.
I think Location is fine maybe mix it up a bit go to myrtle beach or something, but rocky mount seems to be a great location.

Most def. need some cash money and trophies as prizes for each event. Not saying alot of money, but enough to cover maybe the next tourny or something.
