Waaaa Waaaa Waaaa... all I hear about this boo hoo we don't want to fly to the east coast...or we don't want to fly to the west coast. Hell if it were up to me I'd say just have them all in the central US. Chicago, TX, Denver (works for me I guess)... then no one could complain. It'd be centralized and equal for everyone. Why do you think Chicago always has one of the largest turnouts....b/c it's centralized! I mean hell look at TX you have Dallas/Houston/San Antonio ... huge cities w/ big tourist attractions, but haven't seen an event anywhere near TX yet...and they have ALOT of teams. But you don't hear teams from TX, OK, LA, AZ, NM, MO etc. whining. Teams from those states fly to every event, w/o whining a single bit. Sack up and play you east coast pusses.

I don't know why people are *****ing.. You KNEW you had to travel when you signed up to play national tourneys. You KNOW that it's not going to be in your backyard.

You also have to remember that Cali is the size of jersey down to florida anyway. So a lot of cali team have to fly to events in their own state too.
We used to fly from Oakland down to LA all the time. 10 hours of driving with traffic on the 71/91/210/5, or 45 minute flight on southwest for 80 bucks each way.
It made more sense to fly.

im happy its not in philly. the city blows and there was nothing but ghettos every where, which lead to little ghetto kids running through the staging area trying to steal stuff. denver is a much nicer city.

and graffiti how far of a drive is it for you to get to orlando? and chicago shouldnt be that far from you. if you lived in cali which 3 events could you make? LA denver/portland and ? chicago is far away from cali.

Your afraid of little Ghetto kids running around? Philly owns and its sad to hear its been switched to Denver. Im pretty sure your the only one worried about "little ghetto kids" sneaking into the staging aread.

well when **** gets stolen from you, you will worry next time too. especially when the women checking psp passes checks mine when im in full gear with a pb gun and some little boy rides past her with a pink barbie bike to small for him and she says nothing.


and i check driving times from jersey to chicago and orlando, 16hr to orlando and 12 to chicago, what are you crying about? thats nothing. try driving 26+ hrs to LA.

Umm, then you're a pretty piss poor road-tripper. That's averaging UNDER 50 mph "non stop."

Thats either just awful driving, or comeplete BS. My girlfriend and I made it to florida from chicago in one shot - that took barely over 21 and thats almost 350 miles further away than NJ....

LOL!!!!! I would love to have the event at 303......HMMMMM, let's see I will have to add 5 more fields........*thinking* I have 2 already, I can fit 2 on the roof, and 3 in the parking lot. Thank god I figured it out!!!!! Look...Denver would be a great choice for a venue. Easy access from the airport, great weather, great night life, and it is centrally located in the country. The event will not be at 303 and it was never talked about being here. If the event is truly going to be held here I will have XBall fields and 10 man fields set up at 303 for any teams that would like to come practice before the event. I would STRONGLY suggest that the XBall teams in particular practice at least once here to acclimate themselves with the altitude. If you need anything Lane....please feel free to give me a call. Thanks.

Honestly Im glad to hear that its going to Denver, Philly was kewl and all but a bit Dull for me.....And I like the idea of it being more central makes it fair for everyone, if you can't make the trip then save up and play the next one, if you still can't play that one, then stick to local events its that simple...Anyhow move on and lets get ready to goto Denver and enjoy the event.....
