We're an unranked D6 team bro. I have a bunch of 15-17 year olds that I had to persuade their parents to let them drive to N.J. Now I have to tell them it's going to be an extra two hours (on top of the 1.5 to meadowlands) in P.A. Just a bit of a downer thats all. We've invested a lot of practice time and money (not that no one else hasn't) into a tourney that we may not be able to attend now. And I know EPL's not just sitting around saying "ah f*** it, we hit a little speed bump so lets relocate the entire venue to somewhere further away to make it harder for people to attend." It was probably a nightmare for them to have to relocate and we're probably lucky they didn't have to cancel entirely. So hats off to EPL for avoiding a cancellation all together. The whole situation just sucks entirely. I apologize if my above post seemed like a slant towards you guys. Wasn't meant to. I was just venting. Hopefully we'll see you guys on the field and that this doesn't change anything for anyone.
