I just grabbed the APPA link
from the NEIC South planning thread, I figured it isn't too early to post a thread discussing the (rescheduled) Liberty Open. It will be held November 5th at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia.
Some quick details:
Date: Saturday, November 5th
Price: $150 by Wednesday, October 26th
Paint: Redemption, $45 or Graffiti, $40
Location: Liberty University campus, Lynchburg VA 24502
Liberty has 2 turfed fields... so it can handle quite a lot of teams!!
1) Liberty (I hope... =p)
2) Eastern Kentucky Colonels
3) Virginia Commonwealth University
4) Virginia Tech Hokies
5) Temple (maybe)
This appears to be cheap and really close...
^Awaiting word on hotel discounts
Layout: Will be announced October 22nd

Hotels: Extended Stay is very close. Also the Wingate Hotel is the closest and we have a partnership with them, I will get a discounted rate.
Paint: We will have Valken Redemption $45 and Graffiti $40.
Refs: People sometimes think we stack the refs with liberty guys... NOT TRUE. I hire local refs/players/teams to do the reffing.
Extras: Will have concessions available. We have the scoreboard mounted and working on one field (praying it stays working) and we will run the Lurker Scoreboard App on the other with a sound system (if we have enough teams to need two fields). For before or after the tournament there is an awesome Hibachi Buffet, and Snowflex (year round ski slope).
We are advertising this with the University and local media. Hoping to have lots of spectators.
If you have any questions, let me know.
