    In the past, I have found that if you don't go until mid-afternoon they have stopped collecting parking fees. Does that still work?

    And the polo fields are nowhere near as good as they used to be...too many tournaments being played there now -- for example, past 3 weekends in a row had tournaments there---and of course one of the largest clubs practices there every weekday. Balls hop on their own on that grass ALL the time. Doesn't matter if your team plays kickball, but if they try to play on the ground, it's brutal. I've seen balls rolling smoothly on the ground hop up to players' waists. Oceanside may have the toxic air, but at least the balls roll true. Silver lakes and Galway get the heat/wind, but even there the balls roll better.

    It was 100 degrees on our way home from Galway yesterday - and it wasn't even noon yet. Glad we were able to push up the final game since both teams were already guaranteed a spot in the championship game.

    From what I was told all of the grass is being replaced with new sod at the Polo fields. The areas fenced off already have the new grass which looks really nice.

    Great Park is the place to play- less than 100 degrees, nicer fields, centrally located and FREE parking...

    I like Great Park. Those arti-turf fields still get hot. I have worked games at the Army-Navy school in Carlsbad and even on cool days if the sun is out the arti-turf gets hot. I would rather have natural grass, but I do understand the costs to maintain grass. Maybe if they put in 25-30 fields we will see more of the large tournaments played at GP.

    Great Park has 25 fields already although you’re right some are turf. Like most things, I bet it’s due to money that more of the big events aren’t held there yet/more regularly.

    GP would be great. Traffic in and out would be much easier as there are multiple ways to get in and out. There are local industries in the area to offer dining, lodging, etc. Grass fields there are tip top.

    I can’t imagine “Surf Cup” not being played at “Surf Cup Sports Park”.
    Great Park should hold a major tournament though.

    I contacted them to inquire about acceptance. I was told that they will announce acceptance by Friday 6/14.
