The most cost efficient tourney in the US - becomes even more cost efficient?

Good News in line with IKEA, maybe Walmart and perhaps ALDI?

Here is the scoop:
The Midwest Floorball Championship has always had a philosophy to be as cost efficient as possible - all players should have as much bang as possible for their bucks. We want as many players and teams as possible (within reasonable limits) and money should be spent on travel and staying instead of Floorball. The tournament is not in place to make money but to make people play Floorball.

The Midwest Floorball Championship has been played for three years - and our low fee has been set at 10 dollars per player. That is a fraction of the cost compared tp what many others can offer.
This year the Tomah Parks & Director has suggested the following change to the payment of the tournament. Instead of each player paying for themselves - we may switch to a Team Fee.

Right now the discussion is to set this team fee at $75 per team. That means that the earlier team fee - for a team with 9 players was $90 dollars - will now become yet $15 dollars cheaper. With eight players on a team the team fee is still $5 dollars lower and it is first as a team consist of 7 or less players that the new team fee will become more expensive as compared to previous cost structure.
The new team fee will make our own administration easier - and it will be an incitement to have teams with more players on them.
Floorball at the Midwest Floorball Championship is played 4 on 4 with goalies and we do recommend that a team should have at least two substitutes i.e. 7 players. Now we might have a little money reward cooked into the fee structure - so all teams can become as large as possible. We would however not recommend any teams to have above 9 players - since play time will not be optimal.

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
