I've got a guys day retreat w/ some local churches the weekend before, we'll probably have 100+ high schoolers there - I'll be pushing for them to come to D-Day. I may only convince maybe 10 extra guys to go but who knows. Many of them will have the same issue that blackcell & his group is having: finals + the possibility of graduations/grad parties.
That's another issue w/ the timing of this one, it's right at schools end (maybe not for all but some). Either college players w/ finals or HS w/ grad parties & finals. Also, lots of families take off on vacation right when school lets out. All those things may bring numbers down a bit. Fortunately there should be enough of us who are old enough to be out of HS/college & young enough to not have kids in HS/college & poor enough to not be going on a big family vacation this year (but not so poor that we can't pay $100 for a day of paintball at the Front ).
That's all total speculation obviously . The field will release the pre-reg numbers the week before & we can probably expect another 100+ on top of that for those that just show up day-of.
