I wouldn't be sure about that.
Unless they have done considerable clearing recently, there are few areas that offer lanes. I know the field well as a scenario player, not as a tourney player. The field itself is mostly woods with significant distance between flags depending on which fields are being used. Some structures but limited to specific sites which are speedball, not woods.

And the big thing to remember is that is being put up by Jerry Braun, the man who started the whole "World Cup" at this same field back in the late 80's. This guy has seen how the industry has developed more than most of us.

What He is trying to do is offer players a way to bring things back to their roots, hence an electronic cap similar to a decent mech (in the right hands), larger team rosters and an area which is not your average "postage stamp" sized limitation of a speedball court.
With enough player support, meaning total number of teams registered, it could mean going beyond the mere fact that this is a sanctioned event ~ It could become a World Class Event.

Anybody familiar with how it was set up in 1990? What with it being the same field and same organizer, it would be a cool homage if they made it exactly the same as that one.

It was:
Limited paint. Teams were issued a limited amount of paint for each day. This was included in the entrance fee. Each team also was issued its own color. Paint was George Stadler's "Bullseye", and was of reasonably good quality, but there were some colors that were just awful.
Teams were issued their own color armbands, made from "Handi-Wipes". (no kidding).
12 grams only-Lelands-which didn't seal well in Line SI lever changers-also in a limited amount, also included with entrance fee.
No check valves, and you were checked.
Chrono on by a judge with a 12vie that you provided, as well as chrono off. You were checked at a "Splat Table" where a group of judges checked you for paint. Any paint on you was marked with a black Sharpie, which also permanently marked your cammies.

At the end of the first day, you needed to turn in all your paint and 12vies that you had left. If you went to the Semi's on the second day, you were issued new paint and 12vies, of a different color, as well as new "Handi-Wipes" (no kidding)

You were EXPECTED to be wearing clean uniforms, so there was a lot of chaos the evening of the first day with teams who were going into the Semi's trying to launder their cammies, the biggest chaos was caused by trying to dry them. "Tigerstripes in the Microwave" (no kidding). Most of us played in damp cammies.

Gear's in the car and we'll be heading up after I get off of work this afternoon. Playing in the Pro division since apparently Amateur was wiped for lack of teams.
