local support

It seem 7 man is about to vanish
Would it not make sense for USPL to look to plant seed outside of there league to try to keep some new growth ?
In Ontario 7 man used to be the big thing ,now you can't find a field to practice with in 15 hours of driving
Ontario is a nothing market for you guys but all those nothing market with some effort from you could help building stronger foundation for USPL

could you not help new series to get up and feed your own ?
If no one can play 7 man here ,how can they even think of going to a USPL event ?

I think the USPL is the greatest structured league
If you could find ways to help local tourney scene ,you could benefit from it in the long run

knowing there is a field We could practice 7 hours away ,does not much to keep 7 man interest
What USPL need to do is promote the format
Help new series getting started offer prize package to them
Free admission to USPL for the top teams .Free admission cost them nothing .
This is a team that would not have gone anyway
but now you create a fallowing ,this team goes there and represent all the one left behind ,they now Want to be the one going too.

Offer to help the serie with bunker system
Ask them to provide 2 full set up and all you need
You will come down and bring bunker system and schedule the event
Players will go for this
they will feel this is a legit event and will support it

look at 4 years ago when 7 man was dominating the tourney scene and today that it has vanished leaving all the room to Xball
What is different ?

nothing ,all the Xball players that where preaching 7 man still do
only thing is nothing is available to them anymore

unless USPL start to plant seed for there future ,this league is the next one to leave and will drag a entire format with it

look at the CXBL video on you tube
like 1600 players in 2 days
5 minutes from the US border
and has all the needs for hosting
fields ,air ,camp site,hotels and restaurants minutes away .

closer to toronto
they have all you need and more

in Montreal

in London Ontario

But even better
start local series with in 3 hour drive from each of the USPL events
Find someone that wants to do it and will handle it all
there will be much more interest when USPL stop in there area
