NPPL Feeder events do not have to be 7-player only events
The title NPPL Feeder event is awarded to those events the NPPL feel is run a certain way, with NPPL rules plus other requirements.
The NPPL is building strong local and regional events so players can get prepared for the NPPL.
3-player, 5-player and 7-player events can be NPPL Feeder events
In 2006 there will be even more requirments for a Feeder Event as well as more benifits to the players that participate.
If you want to know more about this you can find me at the GPL event and I will explain it in length.
