The Millennium Series sent out an email blast announcing the 2010 event dates, the inclusion of .50cal, and mention of several lessons learned during the 2009 season. For those of you currently playing OR interested in playing abroad, this will be an interesting read.
Firstly we would like to thank you for being a part of this years league. In particular we would like to thank you for your help and understanding at our opening event in Malaga, where we experienced the worst weather during an event in our history. Thankfully we ended the season in Turkey with probably the best weather we have had.
During 2009 we held one of our 5 events as an open cup in Paris, making a departure from our normal 5 leg league. After taking account of all feed back we have decided not to repeat this in 2010 and will therefore return to a 5 leg league as normal.
As always we are working hard behind the scenes right now in order to get the best possible venues with the best possible deals for teams confirmed. We are currently much further ahead with this than normal and can confirm our first two events with provisional venues for the last three. Shortly we believe we will be in a position to fully confirm the schedule detailed below. From lessons we learnt this year in Turkey, we are also negotiating very hard for improved hotel deals for teams at all venues and will bring advanced information on this as soon as possible.
The rules commission is also currently looking at the rule book to see where and if any changes are necessary. One rule that will be changed for 2010 will be regarding caliber. There is a growing demand to allow other calibers to participate in The Millennium Series and we are pleased to confirm that in 2010 we will allow both 0.68 0.50 cal. As a result we will open up our events to new companies who will be looking to sponsor teams. We expect to start announcing 2010 sponsors very shortly.
We are also looking at some fine tuning of our events in order to add to the overall atmosphere and smooth running with the hope to be able to help cut your costs further. We will shortly be contacting you for your feed back to assist us in our planning.
In the meantime if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the Millennium. Once again thank you for your support.
