In the NPPL, at the end of the season, the top X Semi-Pro teams were promoted to Pro, and the bottom three Pro teams were relegated to Semi-Pro. Since there is no Semi-Pro in USPL, will there be any promotion of D1 teams to Pro? Will Pro teams be relegated to D1?

Seems like a sticky issue if the Pro teams are all part owners of the league. If there's no promotion, what do the divisional teams have to work towards?

for the boston event, is there a set location yet ? the 06 nppl was at gillette, but with the addition of patriot place, there would be no room. 07 nppl was at brockton fairgrounds, which i thought went well! so my guess would be there again, but do you know yet or not ?

so is it 100% that you have to get a seperate ID card for USPL?

the psp card has worked for every other tournament series here in california. (SCPL, WCPPL, RIOT)

Did some teams receive discounts in order to play?

Were the discounts offered to ALL teams?

Where are the discount offer/s posted?

Will teams who payed full price have the $$ delta refunded.

I did not see this posted anywhere. Diisregard if it's been discussed already.

I've heard the same thing about USPL giving large (?) discounts to play the event. To my knowledge this has not been discussed openly or to other team owners such as myself. I'm hoping they get around to offering the same to all of us.

WoW! I feel so screwed right now, if this is true! reward the teams that procrastinate on their payment and jack the teams that paid early First we find out that this league is "field paint only" after we paid registration...and to top it off we're required to prepay for the paint before the event. And now this!!!

Somebody from the USPL want to address this discount issue? I'm sure a lot of us that were not aware of this happening, would like to hear something about it.

.

why would we purchase a new id when the previous tournament we had participated in used the same ranking system (appa)? i find that completely absurd and ridiculous. it's a waste of time and mostly money, the hype for this tournament is going down. for the player's; bull****.

Actually you can get it at the event for $5 more a box. So no we were not required to prepay for paint.

I too am curious about the alleged discounts given? It's been a while since any official USPL member has responded to questions on this thread.

What time on Thursday can we walk fields and/or register/pick up ID cards?

I'm so stoked for this event!!!

the appa is not cheap at all, so having there own id cards psp/uspl is their way to pay for the ranking system....

We're already getting tagged $10 extra per box, why make it $15 We normally shoot 40+ an event, so as you can see...we're getting charged an extra $400 on paint cost.

Did you guys get Camile's latest email? If teams make it to Sunday, they will be sold paint at the prepay prices .

I wish this tourney was BYOP too, but it's a stipulation the city of HB wanted to better control paint clean up.
