2008 CFOA 5-Man & XBall Info
2008 CFOA 5-Man Classification Changes
The CFOA will be changing over to the divisional numbering system for 2008. 2008 CFOA classifications will be as follows:

2008 CFOA Division Promotions
For promotion purposes we will use a similar formula to the one we’ve used in the last few years. As a refresher: we took a team’s top 2 seed point scores and totaled them. Any player of any team who’s total equaled or exceeded the promotion point, and the player was common on both of that team’s event rosters, would be promoted to the next classification, i.e.…
2007 Rookie Division Champions – LA Swat
1) Highest seed point score – 100 pts (Trauma Challenge)
2) Second highest seed point score – 100 pts (Homecoming)
TOTAL - 200 seed points
Rookie Promotion Point – 180 seed points
LA Swat exceeds the promotion point, so therefore, all LA Swat players that appear on both the team’s Trauma Challenge roster and the team’s Homecoming roster will be promoted to D III for 2008.
These player promotions will be handled on an individual player basis and will be handled within the APPA system prior to the start of the 2008 season.
2008 Promotion Points
2007 CFOA 5-Man Beginner, the promotion point is set at: 175 seed points.
2007 CFOA 5-Man Rookie, the promotion point is set at: 180 seed points.
2007 CFOA 5-Man Novice, the promotion point is set at: 198 seed points.
2007 CFOA XBall Division III, the promotion point at: 190 seed points.
2007 CFOA XBall Division II, no promotions.
2008 CFOA 5-Man D I/D II (Amateur) Division
YES! The highest level of CFOA 5-Man competition makes its return in 2008. This will be a closed division. If you are interested in competing in this division and I haven’t spoke to you about the details of this division, there are a couple of spots still available, but they won’t last long, so please call me at 336-510-8451 if interested.
2008 CFOA ID Cards
The 2008 CFOA ID cards will go on sell on Monday, January 14th. CFOA ID cards will be $30 online or $40 at the event. I encourage as many of you as possible to take care of your ID online to avoid the LONNNGGG line at the event. The 2008 CFOA ID is required to participate in any 2008 CFOA events.
2008 CFOA Rulebooks, 5-Man & XBall
The 2008 CFOA Rulebooks are near completion. The main holdup on releasing them is the rate of fire rules and a PACT timer conversion chart. Other than the rate of fire change, there are not many changes from 2007. Most changes are minor and come in the form of clarifying existing rules.
