Good luck to all teams playing the event and we'll see ya there
this is so true and i rember the fields could be a spool and tire field to sup air to old tube pipe fields. no two fields had the same lay. some had car washes, big x's, some big thing that had no shape. or something that looked like this

people want the layout early. i think its stupid. i liked it when you had to walk it and study it.

if you release the layout early do it like the monday before the event. thatway you can look at it and study it, but you cant play it untill gameday.

with that said. its better for the feild owners if you release it early because you can advertise that you have the layout and that attracts teams.

this is very true. this will be the first time is about 5 years of playing ive ever seen the field lay out on the field and able to play it, because its my home field. weve had pratice on our woods ball field playing with rentle guns just because we wanted to have more fun and didnt wait to play speed ball the week before the event. like i said its just about haveing fun.

I remember those days too. MSPA, having to walk 4 different fields the day of or the day before. I agree that not releasing the layouts would be true 5-man, but releasing them does help the fields to draw in a little xtra $$. Especially in this economy. by the way, OTP has the layout up!!

I have mixed feelings about this. Alex has a great point about the fields getting more business with the layouts up and running and anything that gives the local fields business is a positive thing IMHO.

I like having the layout at least 4 months ahead of the tounrney so I can build it on hastings and blast people with my modded blade trigger controler. This makes me pro on game day. On a real note...

I like having the field on gameday but when you walk the fields they are half blown up about 1hr before games. Its almost useless to walk a field like that. So if they release on gameday make sure the fields are blown up so teams can get time to sign in, crono, and walk the field before gameday. This was a problem for us last season in the CFOA.

Another note as a promoter, is that if you have the field layout released earlier, teams who have played it feel more comfortable and theoritically will play it a bit more aggressive than if they had just walked it an hour prior. Thus cutting back the amount of time needed to run the event because games going by quicker. Just another food for thought as to why I like releasing it earlier, plus it makes my job ten times easier so I can do most of my work in a single stretch of 4 days instead of some time here and there and then again there. Of course you guys probably don't think I am important or anything like that.

we love you Nate (no homo)

Just a thought, the GFOA website needs to be updated. Why don't you get on that, since I am sure you are bored to death with nothing to do!
