Great event like always chad. The event ran smooth like always. Refs were amazing and on the ball for the 3-man event. The DXS gold you had shoot like money not one barrel break all day. Thanks for another great event cant wait to see you guys in Maryland

As I told Chad personally..... Ive played quite a few events in my day and Keystone was by far one of the best run events ive been to. The Refs put work in this weekend. I was only guesting for a team but I wish my team was able to play this series. Good luck to everyone who plays EPL. You guys have a great series to take part in.

PS.... Bobby rocked too. Thanks for going above and beyond to help us with a issue we had.

Venue- AWESOME

Infamy Refs- AWESOME!!!!

APPA breaking down-

2 different layouts- I'm 50/50 on. I think this would work best with 4 fields. 2 for d4 and 2 for d5. But this is very expensive and the EPL only needs 2 fields lol.

Event speed- very long and slow compared to the first north event. This was the only thing that was not so great. My team and I really enjoyed how fast the first event was. I'd like to see it go back to d4 and d5 on seperate fields with the same refs. This way things can be run faster. Its nice to have all the matches run really quick.

Coaching- spoke with chad about this after he consulted me personally...and I am pretty sure he agreed. 1 designated coach on the roster per team while all rostered players must stay in a designated pit. Also pushing spectators farther back from the playing fields. This would be an amazing addition to this already awesome series!

Just a thought/suggestion- why not have a digital timer set with 2-3 minutes for a turn around. This way you just wipe off, pod up, and flip sides. You play your 2 games real quick and then if there is a need for a 3rd it will be played later in the day. I am pretty sure this will cut down time out and make things more exciting! Just my opinion as to what I would like to see added to this amazing league.

Can't wait for the 3rd Event! Keep up the great work Chad and the EPL Staff!

Although I wasn't at the tournament the Rogue contingent had a great time and enjoyed the event.

As a veteran tournament Mom I can see how separating the divisions on each field would keep things running quicker but I didn't hear of any major issues with that.

I do not agree with the suggestion for the 2-3 minute turnaround. This event is still five man not XBall. I think if each division is on its own field the games will progress quickly enough without having to do a quick turnaround. It will also give the teams a breather and a chance to figure out what went wrong and try to correct it before the second game. Rushing them back out onto the field will not give them a chance to address what went wrong the first time.

Thanks to Chad, Sheldon and everyone else involved for putting on this event. Many times people don't realize what goes into hosting an event and we appreciate the effort to offer this series to our players.

We look forward to the next event and to any of the teams that approached Rogue Kidz or Rogue II about practicing down here, please feel free to contact me and we can make arrangements.

Sue

Had a blast getting to know alot of the teams personally.
Ran well, time did get backed up, but APPA had some issues.

Loved the event. Fields were great, and had some great games!

Thanks to Chad, Sheldon, and the rest of the EPL Ref and Series Crew!

Yeah, uh only problem I really had with the event, the refs weren't the greatest. I felt some of the calls didnt go both ways... Otherwise, nice fields... Things were easy to get to, plenty of parking and all that stuff...

good event
had lots of fun and enjoyed the experience.

The only thing i did not like was the reffing.
I also felt alot of the situations didnt go both ways an if they had then i assure you the top 3 winning teams would have differed a bit.

Other then that i liked the whole two different feild thing going on but i did expect to get out alot sooner.

well run event. the time issue had nothing to do with EPL and more to do with the Appa. I thought the refs were as fair if not more so than any other tourney I have been to. Hats off to the staff of EPL for handling everything as quickly and to the best of their ability. I had a chance to talk to the Chad about a few ideas to help make this better and I personally feel that he is in it for the players.

As for the teams.... some of the best sportsmanship I have ever seen in sports (and that is a lot). There was some complaining, but there always is when sour grapes are involved. But most everybody was cheering on each others, and keeping all bad feelings on the field.

Once again....well done, and keep it up for the rest of the series. I dont know much about the South, but the North will keep bringing it with Championships down to game 3 and 20 seconds left for the wins

as of now epl is two wins no losses. alot of respect towards chad for his commitment . reffing was amazing, the new schedule on 2 fields made things run faster for d5 and playing on different layouts made the day interesting. i also liked the suggestions made bout coaching, and turning 2 games in a couple of minutes, would be very popular amongst other teams i think.all in all see you all in a month.

ive been reading alot of people talking about the quick turn around games nd i think its a great idea considering overall winners and top seeds help get their trips to world cup and i think it would be a great idea helping people get ready for the quick turn arounds at world cup

For those of you who do not know who I am.....I am the owner of WPP. I hope all of the EPL players, fans, and staff enjoyed their stay at our facility. My staff busted their buts to give everyone a top notch playing venue.

To Chad and his crew a big thanks....things went smoothly. Players must realize when you run a event of this magnitude that there will be some bumps in the road. I thought Chad did a good job of keeping things running well.

To the teams a big thanks for having the courtesy to clean up after the event . I would like to take this opportunity to let any teams who may be looking for a new home that we would be happy to have you at WPP. Please contact me personally if you would like to speak about it......

On another quick note....some of you may have received a flier for a "Pro-Camp" we are hosting June 6th. The price is $100.00 NOT $140.00 (I apologize for the typo)
