Sorry for the confusion guys, I was in contact with the field owner in Tallahassee and he said he is about to buy an indoor facility that could host a tournament this fall. FSU would like to volunteer to host either the November or the February event. Us hosting while it's the coldest makes sense because of the indoor facility.

However, I don't understand spreading out the events throughout FL when we could just host them all at CFP, a field that is very centralized and obviously top quality. I don't think anybody would ever have to drive more than 4 and a half hours.

I get that going to new cities and fields is kinda cool, but in the end, the bottom line is money. Driving further = more money. Why would you want to do that? And we should never, ever talk about hosting in GA for a Florida conference event unless we want to do a merger with the Mid South Conference.

Tl;dr, FSU can host, but I would MUCH rather just centralize the conference at CFP.

I guess we are back to square 1.

I think hosting all events at CFP is a good way to go as well. It will give an opportunity for more consistent events.


If the ideas we have been discussing last week end up holding true:

The way we have it now would have FSU having a 6 hour drive for the OPP event and FAU having a 5+ hour drive for the Jacksonville event.

On the flip side FAU would have a 2 1/2 hour drive to OPP and FSU would have a 2 1/2 hour drive to Jacksonville FWIW.

If FSU hosts one in Tally, I think FAU should host one in their backyard as well just to even it out.

Our home field, unless they change the airstation around, would not be able to host an event.

The benefit of doing all the events at CFP is that you don't have to worry about evening it out. Nobody would have to drive more than 4 and a half hours. In fact, I think FSU has one of, if not the longest, drive to CFP out of everyone and we are all for it.

So it seems as though everyone is impartial to the means by which we hold the events (4 @ CFP or 4 throughout Florida). Let's try this question:

Is anyone actually opposed to doing four events at CFP?

Personally, I dont mind.
Someone needs to get in touch with the johns and get an okay for us to have all the NCPA events there. I dont think they would mind as long as it doesnt conflict with CFPS.

btw, do we have a name for the conference? or is it just going to be the FLC (florida conference)?

I don't believe that there are that many fields in Florida that would be capable of hosting an event, and it would probably come down to multiple events at CFP. The only other field I can think of off the top of my head would be PBW.

I have no opposition to it, I just thought it'd be more fair to the teams that have to drive 4 hours every time.

We have tried to get an event at PBW as sort of a thank-you to the field for helping us out and whatnot. Possible to do 3 at CFP and one at PBW if they're willing to host?

Final call: We'll plan on doing four events at four different fields.

CFP, Gorilla Paintball, Oasis Paintball, and PB World would be the four proposed fields. I have a preference of having the CFP event first if they're willing to host, as it should be the easiest for us to set up.

If anyone objects, speak now otherwise we'll move forward with the planning from here.

What makes 4 different fields more advantageous than all events at CFP?

lol idk. Correct me if I'm wrong, but FSU has the longest drive in either format and they still want CFP. That sounds like case closed to me.

Has UCF already committed an event to PBW? That would be something to back them up on too.

Maybe 2 and 2?

That would remove the north and south events entirely.

I have not promised anything to Gorilla on the matter. I made it clear we were still in the planning phase.

After re-reading the thread this morning, it appears as though I exhibited poor reading comprehension yesterday; I was under the impression that we had already committed discussions to Gorilla & PBW.

I don't like being wishy-washy, but 4 CFP events will probably be better than 4 events at other fields for this season. Please disregard the above post; let's plan 4 events at CFP.

when will we have the exact dates of the events? We need to plan around World Cup and Nationals and see who can attend from the team.

thanks

talked with johnny yesterday at cfp. He was fine with us throwing events on Sept 24th, and then another in November, either the 12th or 19th.
these dates are spaced out enough between the remaining CFPS event and Cup.

Count University of West Florida in, we just finally met NCPA requirements as in we have enough members willing to go through so were now going to start practicing. Hopefully no one gives us a hard since were the new team on the block lol Looking forward to this season

P.S Lakeland is 7hr + from us and will likely make us unable to attend except for nationals.

You guys will probably have better luck for closer events in another region as I think it's pretty settled we're going to have them at CFP.

Now just to get some concrete dates down...
