2015 Nationals Layout Release Poll | 2016 Board of Directors

2015 National Championships Field Layout Release Date Preference
For 2015, PSP changed their field release schedule so that the Pro field layout is released the day before play, and then used the following event as the layout for the Divisional fields.  This change was well-received by teams and contributed to some exciting play at Dallas, but also prevents us from using the Dallas Pro / Nashville Divisional layout for the 2015 National Champs as we had to order our custom field prior to Dallas.
As such, NCPA will be using a new, unique layout for Nationals.  We can release the layout in advance on March 27, or wait until the event to release it, likely April 15 or 16.
If your team is attending the 2015 National Championship, please visit your team profile on APPA at http://www.appapb.com/cgi-bin/teamprofile.cgi?page=NCPAVoting and indicate your layout release date preference between:
  • Layout released the week of Nationals
  • Layout released Friday, March 27

We will review the votes on Thursday afternoon and announce the results and possibly layout on Friday.  Preferences of paid teams (money received or payment pending) will be given strongest consideration, so make sure you get your National Championship entry paid, or invoice submitted to your school.
