You know what's really awsome, most of the NE teams going to HB have been practicing on indoor sand fields to adapt to the conditions.

Shok: When was the last time you saw ANYONE on any tournament team wearing shorts?

I just played indoor last sunday on astroturf. Very nice surface and you can superman game after game with no pain whatsoever.

That's dumb... why have it on the beach? Hah.

Having to play on sand set HB apart from all other events. As troublesome as it may have been to play on it, it was still a cool part of the tournament. Oh well it'll still be an amazing event.

I'd say that's probably a primary reason for the turf at Huntington Beach. Last year they had to have a bunch of compressors set up so players could blow sand out of their equipment and such. Lots of people were having problems with their straps. It'll be just all around easier on players, which is what the NPPL seems to be about.

How are they going to anchor the bunkers? Sandbags aren't exactly the easiest things to put inside and I doubt they will be putting stakes through the new turf.
