The fields will be up for walking. Remember 3 man occurs on Saturday and 5 & 7 on Sunday. So you will be able to see the fields any time on Saturday. Some teams in the past have come late afternoon on Fridays to look them over. I would just clear that with Rick Carver before just showing up on his field.

I actually spoke with Rick Craver from OACC and the MAPL layout is up at his field for practice ahead of time. The official layout will be posted shortly. For 3 and 5 man we are using 120 x 150 dimensions with at least 5 feet from the outer most bunker to the field boundary.

The MAX you will get is a score of "2" for each match (match is best out of 3)..so a possible score of "6". In your bracket, the top teams will advance. The advantage is more teams advance to quarter finals, however attrition is fairly quick after that - meaning you need to be on your "A" game and keep winning or you get bumped out.

Other tie-breakers such as speed of game are recorded and head to head scores to help us re-seed teams for the quarterfinals and semifinals rounds. Simply put if you keep winning you keep advancing.

Unlike previous years where your score was compared to the overall persay - you are fighting to get out of your bracket with typically some wildcards slots open as well. The PSP typically takes either 12 to 16 teams in to Ocho/Quarterfinals. Again it depends on the number of teams registered and playing in each division.

The specific number of teams advancing will depend on the number of teams playing in each division. That will be determined at the time of the EVENT and will be announces either a few days before or AT the captains meeting.

That is correct. Basically lets say you are team A, and you are playing team B. Lets say you win your point, you will go back and play that team in the second set for your second point. It will not be right away.

Basically your day would be like this - Lets just say you are Team 1

REMEMBER THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE - TIMES ARE NOT EXACT. THIS IS BASED OFF OF 6 TEAMS AND WE ARE STILL PLAYING WITH THE SCED AND BREAKS... You will get your sced in the morning.

8:00 Team 1 vs Team 2
8:07 Team 3 vs Team 4
8:14 8Team 5 vs Team 6

8:21 Team 1 vs Team 3
8:28 Team 2 vs Team 5
8:35 Team 4 vs Team 6

8:42 Team 1 vs Team 4
8:49 Team 2 vs Team 6
8:56 Team 3 vs Team 5

9:03 Team 1 vs Team 2
9:10 Team 3 vs Team 4
9:17 Team 5 vs Team 6

9:24 Team 1 vs Team 3
9:31 Team 2 vs Team 5
9:38 Team 4 vs Team 6

9:45 Team 1 vs Team 4
9:59 Team 3 vs Team 5

(below game would be as needed for the 3rd point)
Team 1 vs Team 2
Team 3 vs Team 4
Team 5 vs Team 6
Team 1 vs Team 3
Team 2 vs Team 5
Team 4 vs Team 6
Team 1 vs Team 4
Team 2 vs Team 6
Team 3 vs Team 5

Eric - you were a bit faster than me...

Most likely if there are not enough teams in a particular division, that division will be cancelled but it is still too soon to make that call.

Don't worry about being redundant, I want everyone to ask questions, I will not get tired of it. I want to make sure everyone understands the format so they can practice properly.

The 3man and 5man are Race to 2; ramping and uncapped semi is allowed and there is NO coaching allowed.

The 7man is a normal 100 points per game (NPPL style - old GPL style); NO ramping allowed, only Uncapped Semi and NO coaching allowed.

Please, ask as many questions as you need to ask. That is what I am here for.

My understanding from the Ref Clinic was that Rick Carver was going to allow it, however teams who are considering camping must contact OACC Prior to the event and make their reservation.

OACC has opened up a roadway through the lower hedgerow and their is a field there where teams will be able to camp.

There is still over 1 week until the deadline and teams always wait until the last minute to register.

I not sure where you see that it is listed at $20. Can you direct me to where it is listed $20 per team.

Thank you.
