what if...

So with all these large hurricanes coming through the gulf, made me wonder what would happen if one came during cup. God forbid it doesn't happen but it would be nice to know what the PSP's game plane would be in the event of that situation.

Am I the only one who has ever thought about this ?

No no. The Hurricanes aren't playing the NXL this year. So we have nothing to worry about.

No coincidence they play 7man only, and the Houston event is in peril...

that was a fun year. we all went up to set up vendors, then we took down all the vendors and tied everything down, went to the houses and waited a day, went back and put up the vendors and the fields. things were delayed a day but everything finished on time with very little problem. moslty thanks in part to chris fromthe appa, geoff from the psp and their respective crews. luckily it wasnt a bad storm and passed quickly.

We missed a day of the event due to the hurricane in '05, managed to work it out.

Orlando is at least a bit inland so things are not too horrible; you'd basically have to pull everything down for a day and then set it back up. That's hardest on the vendors, and might require renting lights to run night games or additional temp labor for fields etc, but unless the area was particularly devastated, I don't think it would be an insurmountable issue.

In '05 the biggest issue was people's travel plans getting disrupted.
