now that also doesnt help the teams that are not from around their and canot get down their earlier to get a look at the fields, i mean its not that hard to make a field layout a week or so in advance and post a picture of it, or just make it look like nppl or xball field setup or something
i also would love it if they could have the xball field to be a tru xball field (with the x up and not down, or taken completly off the field) and not a mix matched jumbled field, it adds a nother difficulty and some people really like the xball field setups, including myself
It is difficult to get Field Layouts of used fields. The reason for this is not all bunkers work (ie they have holes, rips, etc) If I post a field then it changes because of down bunkers that doesn't help anyone.
This is the reason for the "jumbled field" as well. Some bunkers went down and some bunkers needed to be replaced.
As I stated before I want to do field layouts, but I have to be confident that the bunkers I release to everyone are the ones that are acutally availible on site.
If I give everyone a layout and then a bunker changes from a 8ft standup to a 3ft half moon, that changes the layout and the lanes and such. And then when one bunker changes the mirror of that bunker has to change also. And then the laout is different.
And the teams get mad at me that they spent time doing plans for a layout that is different.
This has happened in the past. It was an issue during Denver NPPL last year and an issue at XPSL San Jose this year.
There is no reason to create more problems for us and the teams. The GPL has not had layouts for any of their events yet so nothing is changing.
