Are prizes guaranteed like MN Pro's event was, or are they based on X amount of teams registering like Air Assault's events are?

Why does the Vintage series charge for ID cards? Neither Air Assault or MNpro do? What gives?

Air Assault does not require ID cards because that is the fundamental function of the APPA. Register via APPA and providing an ID at check in verifies who you are.

Our registration is a flat fee with no extra hidden costs.

ID cards at a this level just a backdoor way for a promoter to line his pockets.

Say 20 teams play an event that charges for ID cards. 20 teams with 5 players per team. 100 ID cards. @ $30 per player thats $3,000. Where is that money going? Where should it go?

That's why I play Air Assault Series events. No BS, low cost, experienced refs, they always finish ahead of schedule, and CRAZY payouts!

The ID card system is in place to prevent sandbagging and make our staff's job easier. We will also be using it to provide specials for all the players who support the series. For example, Anyone with a V.P.S. ID card will get free admission for the park or a deal on paint, etc.

If that an example of a possibility or an actual benefit of getting a VPS ID card?

Like, can I just pay for an ID, NOT play any of the events and still enjoy discounts and free admission?

Where do you list the specials provided by the VPS ID card?

The VPS card benefits will not be announced till we get closer to the event. The above was an example. Thanks.

So someone wanting to play this series has to pay for an ID card to do what the APPA does already by having the event on the APPA?

How do ID card's prevent sandbagging? Isn't that what APPA is for?

So you are saying that there will FOR SURE, be some kind of field related benefit to getting an ID card?

Ignition will be playing. This will be our first local event in 6 years. Super stoked. Vintage is great field owned by a guy that bleeds the sport.

Brent, I see that you and at least two of your guys are interested in the rules. Does that mean you will have a team there? That would be Rad, the more the merrier

Good luck scrimmaging Dynasty this weekend Pinky !

Joe

People quit hating on the damn ID cards. It's a great thing.
