We need your help!!!

So I have been working on our 5 man series this year. I am really trying to give you a real X-ball style event yet try to keep the paint that each team would use lower than playing x-ball.

I would just like to know from all the teams that are thinking of playing the 5 man series if you would like to keep it a 1 days event or turn it into a 2 day event.

I don't want to give much info out on what we are thinking about doing but, knowing if the teams want a 1 or 2 day event does make a big difference in how I should go about putting the series together.

So please EVERYONE that is thinking of playing the 5 man series this year post here.

1 or 2 days events?

A two day event wouldnt be that bad for us/me. But, for the teams that are traveling quite a distance, maybe talk to some local hotels and possibly get some kind of deal for rates?

It's not the hotels that's the problem. It's that most of us work - and when you have players working over night shifts and we can't leave until 6:00am, we get to Omaha at 12:00n (I'd say closer to 1:00p actually, 6 hours is usually in light/no traffic during summer road conditions) and that's without sleep, without any other kind of preparation. Last thing we want to do is play an event. So if events were to start on Saturday, we wouldn't make it.

Make it a two day event seeing the NPPL has gone the way of the Dinosaur and rumor has it PSP will be only holding 4 events next year. Who knows, this might just what our sport needs to revitalize it's self, may be bring in a pro division. Just my 2 cents.

Just wait there my be a real open class with a D-3 and lower event in the area this year. I have been working on something for the fall.

How cool would it be to see teams like: Aftermath, Dynasty, Ironmen ect play an event in the Omaha area.....

If the 5 man is 2 day will VICIOUS run some other 1 day events for the teams that can't make 2-dayers? Another 4 man?

XSV in Omaha = awesome.

Its looking like the Vicious 5 man series will be 1 day.
The DSSP8NTBALL.COM Classic will be a 2 day event in the Fall.

That is probably your best route. IMO.

Good Luck with the series DSS/VICIOUS. I enjoyed it last year a lot.

Depending on the job - I need to give 3 months notice for any days I want off, especially with lay offs and similar items. Some positions don't have room for switching hours.

We could swing two day events as we have places to stay in Omaha, however as stated above hotels just add to the expense.

I would stick with a one day event....the dss classic would be a good one for a two day'er
