06 December 2008 - 07:17 PMOk, in all seriousness, instead of having the league remove the hopper restrictions, why not petition the companies that make hoppers and get them to manufacture one capped at 15bps? Right now we are the ONLY major tournament league that runs at a 15bps cap, so why does ANY player need a hopper that feeds faster than 15 bps?
I totally agree. With all the major tournament leagues moving towards sub 15bps rules, why are all the manufacturers still cranking out 30+bps hoppers? It’s because the market still measures a great hopper by how many balls it feeds. There are so many other things to look at. Low power consumption, quietness, gentleness, great design and looks. The sport will always need good solid 15bps hoppers, and the first company to realize that will do very well with them.
05 October 2008 - 11:28 AMCould one of you write a detailed description of a flag for me then?
Please forgive the little ghetto drawing, it's the best I could do on short notice. 6 foot long piece of 2" PVC. An eye bolt at the top and another about half way down. A loop of rope running between them and a flag at each end. Make a stand so it's portable. You can also just hammer it into the ground although you'll need to make it a little longer becuase you still need about 6 feet above the ground. All 3 flag stations are the same.
hope this helps
04 October 2008 - 03:53 PMWow, wide open field. No wonder you go through so much paint!
Is that two different bases I see? If anyone has a close-up of just one base that would be really cool. We would like to start shopping the idea around to some fields here and having all the details would be really helpful.
You're looking at the swing base from the 2008 Ontario qualifier dead center in the pic. The blue flag on the right wasn't part of the game. With all the bunkers and clear shooting lanes, "swing" was always a hot zone.
03 October 2008 - 04:40 PMI do have some questions if anyone can answer them for me:
- How many refs do you have on the field for a game?
- Is there a picture of a CSPPL flag station?
- How much paint is normally consumed by a CSPPL team in a game? (I never saw the final paint numbers but I think we only sold about 35 cases with a total of 6 games played)
Congratulations on running a successful event. There's no turning back now Maverick (Secure) and I along with Greg make up the Canadian element of the SPPL / CSPPL rules committee. We're also heavily involved in the training and certification program for refs. Please feel free to post up with any questions. We're here to help.
The number of refs on the field varries with the level of competition. We've run games with as few as 6 or as many as 14 or 15. It all depends on how intense the play is. I don't have a pic of a flag station but someone will have one for you. They're really nothing more than a 6 foot tall post with 2 flags on a pulley system. At a qualifier, my team runs about 10 cases per per game. Some shoot more and some shoot less, but we budget for 20000 per game. Rookie teams are limited to 15000 per game.

Mav, we could go out and do the training, and you've already got the hat.
