Some help with starting a team please

I dont know if this is the right spot but i've been reading these forums for a few months and i posted in this forum because its about this series. It seemed a better place then to post in new players/first tournament forum/thread.

I am looking to start a team to play in the July 23 3-man event but ive never played/visiited an event before so i have some questions.

How much does it cost per person(3 players) to play in this event? From reading the forums it looks like 4-5 cases for the event for the team, is that a good estimate?

What kind of apparel/clothing/pads would be recommended if any at all? Do we need to have matching shirts/jerseys?

I have more questions but i cant think of them now but when i do think of them i will post them.

Thanks for any help!

also, I know you need to register for appa and then get a id for GPL but is there a cost for either of them and how much is it? How long is it good for? just the season or a year from the date of purchase?

I dont think we are going to play in this event. We might come up and watch to see what its all about though. The august event we wont be able to play either cause of vacations but a question i thought of is the ID card for GPL/MAPL is it good for only the current season or a year from the date receiving it? THanks for any help

The id is only good for each season. But I think you can buy a temp for just one event for like $10. If you aren't playing the event come.up and practice anyway. We are there every weekend except the weekend after the event

Once again we are thinking about putting a team in for Event 4 since it was moved I will be able to play on the new date.

How does the format work? I thought there was a time limit and first to reach 2 in the limit wins but when i came and watched a little bit teams were only playing 1 point? how does this work?

The F.A.Q.'s links don't work on the GPL website.

What is the cost of playing in the event per person for 3-man team? I think i read somewhere it was $50 for case of paint. Can someone clarify how much a case is please?

$50 - Entry Fee($150 per team)
$70 - Paint(4 Cases@ $50 a case (rounded))
$?? - APPA Registration(not sure of cost if any)
$?? - GPL Registration(not sure of cost)

Thanks for the help

Entry is $150 per team
Paint is $55 per case, average about 5 cases in 3man
APPA Registration is the ID Card which is $40 per player (if paid in advance).

Thats it for costs at the event. The way it works is you are given a schedule against 4 teams. You will play each team a min of 2 times (it works like Rock Paper Scissors, best two out of three). Each game is 5 min long. The goal is to hang the flag before time is over. If time stalls, then its a draw which would force it to a 3rd game.

I will draw up a mock schedule for you and post it later.

A great way to gauge your team would be to attend the mapl practice that is held the week before the event. You could register and pay right at the park after you get a taste of the competition.

Alright so for 5 cases its +/- $180 a person and 4 cases +/- $165 a person. Now i just have to convince to pay it. Even though we aren't going to win, I'm trying to convince them that we could win 1st which is about $1125.

As said in a earlier post the ID is only good for the 2011 season correct?

Thanks, But think positive. It has been known to happen. Trust me. I have been doing this for 13 years. I have seen it all pretty much

Don't think about prizes either. The experience, atmosphere, and people that you meet are more than worth it and that's where the real fun is. Winning is great but you have to be out there just to have fun. Placing will come with time if you stick with it.
