I'm not quite why you'd even pick a conflicting date...

I'd personally love to play a 7 man event... but seeing that you've yet to get an event off the ground is quite troubling, especially when combined with a scheduling faux pas, such as this.

Hopefully you'll get some interest and we can look to adding an event to our schedule. Unlikely that we'd play the series though...

I'll play if you don't use NPPL's ranking system instead of APPA.

This could very well be the ticket to get us down there. We'll watch APPA for sign-ups and if the event comes off the ground, I think we can make atleast one of them.

Suggestions

Definitely should move it to the 28th. We're skipping this GFOA and playing GPPL regardless of the date, but I think you'll have more teams sign up if you change the date.

Any chance you will change it to 5-man/PSP format? I know we would like 5-man bc we're going to PSP World Cup, but you might also have a better turn out with 5-man since most teams in GA are already set up for 5-man and have only 6-7 players on their team. With 7-man you will want want to roster at least 9-10 players. We had 6 on our original team, which is fine for GFOA, but we are having to ask some friends from NJ to fly down and play with us so we will have enough players. 7-man would be a lot of fun, and we will play either way. I was just thinking this could be a problem for some teams.

Any idea of what prizes might be for each event? Good prizes bring good teams. lol

Just giving some suggestions... We are really looking forward to this event. We played a 3man race to 2 last month at BIP and it was AMAZING! Perfect fields with green grass and no rocks, perfect field setup, air/pits/CLEAN bathrooms /everything is close to the fields, nicely stocked proshop, refreshing mist stations, this field is awesome! Barry did a great job organizing the event also! Once teams go and play one event @ BIP, they will be hooked on GPPL.

Are we able to roster one D-3 player in the D4/D5 rookie division (like the other leagues)?

I think GPPL needs to set itself apart from gfoa. Both in the dates (obviously) and format.

I think 7 man is the way to go. There are really no other 7 man series in the South, so this will be a good opportunity to draw to BIP.

GA teams can already play MiLP if they want to prep for 5 man Xball...

That's my perspective... Not that you should listen, but I have played , hosted and organized tournaments in GA since 1998.

I wouldn't think so, they have already attempted several PSP fomat events this year without enough interest, partly becasue it would be too similar to GFOA, MILP, CFOA. They are trying 7-man in order to differentiate their series, hopefully it works!

And I agree, definitely make sure the events do not fall on the same weekend as GFOAs so as to draw the most teams!

Yea, I guess you guys are right. I've never played 7-man and didn't realize 7-man was nonexistent in our region. So, like you said, with GPPL being the only 7-man, it would pull in a lot of teams from other states.

Hope you boys can make it, BIP is a great field.

July 28 is better for us. I saw you need 7 teams in a division to run an event. You might want to consider mixing the D4/Open divisions...

I don't think you can pull seven 7 man teams in Open (I wish you could). Would like to know what others think... Maybe require at least 4 D4 players on the roster...

Would like to hear from other teams - would you be ok with a modified Open Division - as an example, require at least three or four D4 players on a roster
