Thanks for the update!!
I've been trying to get a winners list from Eric Binstock.
The National Guard in North Dakota is going to try and put together a series for next year. One major tourney in each major city (Fargo, Devils Lake, Minot, Williston, Dickinson and Bismarck)( I don't know if Grand Forks, Jamestown, Valley City & Wapheton will be on board).
My idea and the one I proposed to our higher ups, is to have a series with a cumalative points total. Each event will have an event winner plus points down to 10th place. These will be open events and will not have a class ranking (i.e. Rookie, Novice, and Amatuer/Semi-pro) since no money exchanges hands on either side (NO ENTRANCE FEES- NO PAYOUT).
We are looking at getting a travel trailer with a HP compressor and CO2 capabilities. Also more bunkers (6 to 10) to fill up the field a little more.
What I am looking for is some input on what kinda rules we should play by.....Should it be open, NPPL, PSP, etc etc.
The one think that is tough is getting the same refs and making them aware of the rules. We have had some decent refs in Dickinson (Same crew two years know) and the teams have been really good about not cheating
The thing is at the end of the year there will be a series champ and hopefully a year end big indoor tourney......
(We're working on something right now for a possible indoor tourney yet this year.....
any comments about this year and ideas for next are welcome!!!!!
