A Call for Nationals
– A behind-the-scenes debate has taken place within the executive board during the past month over the location of the national tournament for the years 2013 and 2014. The USAFL has committed to holding the event in Dublin, Ohio during one of these two years and the decision, no matter where it is held, will result in a group (or groups) of unhappy people for reasons such as the distance of travel, time change or other reasons. A few of the factors taken into consideration for this decision, in no specific order, are as follows:
- Location – what percentage of teams can drive vs. fly?
- Airport – what is/are the closest airports and what are the cost of flights?
- Local city support – does the local community support this event?
- Cost – how much will the two day event cost the league?
- Venue – quality of playing fields and rental expenses.
