GFOA teams, any interest in making the series on Sundays?

What do you guys think?

Thought it might make the series easier for out of state teams to attend?

Perhaps. I thought that Sunday would be good so any traveling teams could arrive Sat, maybe practice the layout, walk the field, etc. then grind it on Sunday.

even if we were to move to sundays, once the field is setup all you can do is walk it.

WMine - send me your email address, i am sending out a questionare/feedback form, that way you can get some input into the next season.
October is the last event.

So if the field is setup, you couldn't play it Saturday at the event site? Why not?

I played w royal flush this last GFOA. We traveled all the way from tampa bay. We had a great time, it sucks that we did not get to practice the layout because the field was not aloud to let us use it the day before the tourney. I think having the tourney on Saturday is a great idea it gives team the opportunity to travel back home on Sunday and get rest for the following work week. I believe that the fields should be open on Friday for teams to grind the day before the tourney. Either way royal flush had a blast and we took a very close 2nd place.

It is classic 5man not race2/4 so it would be pointless to have air on field. That and several other reasons I'm to lazy to type about. Back to original point which seems to be that the OP wants to be able to play the field before. That would present an unfair advantage to teams wgo can take the whole weekend to play. Everyone else has the opportunity to find a field with the GFOA layout the weekend prior, but that would burn some of the more financially strapped teams with an extra scrimmage. And then the more imoortant fact of having to clean the fields the night before.

then your event cost would go up drastically. your doubling your prelim games which means more paint. how many teams you think can afford to double their cost? then you have field issues, which field can handle a race2 format that has two fields. again now you have scheduling problems also without running two day events
