Official GPL Anwser Thread for Event #4

Hello Everyone.

My name is Shawn Walker and the Extreme Events Staff and I are excited to be a part of the GPL.

We will be making some minor changes this year to the GPL in an effort to bring you the best value for your tournament dollar.

We are already working on new sponsors, more media coverage, and bigger prize packages.

I have started this thread to provide you a place to ask questions for the upcoming event.

I will also answer individual posts as they come up.

You may also call the office at 503-581-4594

Event coverage is going to improve. I'm still putting everything in motion so I don't want to name names yet, but there will be some media coverage.

As for layouts, for this event, you may contact Del Hobbies for pics. They may have some on-line. Again, this is defiantly something I want to improve for next time, but it won't be available for this time.

???

There are a few questions the website does not directly answer. What wil be the ACTUAL prizes for this event for 5 man d2 and all others for other people that are wondering.
With these id tags that we need, do we pick up and pay for them at the event and how about picture wise. So basically the whole id tag thing would be nice to have explained.
How much of a late fee will be aplied if you register in the last week.(Team is scramling to get all the $ together in time)
Is there a way to pay for entry when we get there instead of with credit/paypal?
Thanks in advance and im sure these questions will help other teams too.

1) Prize list will be release tomorrow. I will post it on the site and send an email out to everyone.

2) ID cards can be purchased on site for $35. What happens is you will buy a temp card and use that along with a picture ID for that event. Then after the event is over you can send in the Temp with a picture and you will receive your permanent card that will work for the rest of the events this year.

3) There is no late fee to sign up late next week, but its possible you may not get into the event. We can't accept registrations the day of because we do a lot of preplanning based on the number of teams including making the schedule. Many times teams with the best intentions will say they are going to show up, but then they can't for one reason or another. When a team pays in advances the likelihood that they don't show up drops dramatically.

Anything else, let me know!

If you have paid for and not received your permanent ID card then you do not have to get another one.

If you do not have an ID card then you can get a Temp one at the event and mail it in for your permanent card.

You need some sort of picture ID to say you are you. A school ID will work.

All ID card concerns will be handled this event.

If you paid for a card you will either get it at this event or you will get a temp card and be able to send it in for your permanent card.

Please email mary@extremeevents.us and tell her your name and when you purchased your card and we will cross check it and proceed accordingly.

Just wanted to comment about the actions being taken. I think its a great step foward for this event. Thanks for the call earlier today, Hustlers Nation will be registering within a fiew days. And on the new prize list for 5-Man divisions. Now I am really looking foward to the next event.

Will teams be noticing a difference in the way GPL is changing at the August events?

Thank you.

We are really working hard to make the GPL the best it can be.

You will see some event time changes during this next event and even more with each other event this year.

The biggest changes for this season are happening between events with better communication, better prizes and sponsors, and better media coverage.

I will be at this next event and I hope to talk to as many people as possible for suggestions and comments.
