DW and I just got back to PORS from EPCOT to find about 300 Pop Warner football players and cheerleaders checking in the Main Lobby !!! Needless to say we didn't stick around to hit the bar and watch some football.
As a big fan of PORS it is always interesting to see what different groups will do to try and maintain discipline within their own ranks. The following appears in a memo dated September 2010 to All Pop Warner Officers and was included in the 2010 Super Bowl Guide. http://www.popwarner.com/10superbowl/2010SBManual.pdf
"We’ve had serious behavior problems at past Pop Warner Super Bowls at WALT DISNEY WORLD. This note puts you and your participants, young & old, players & coaches, parents & fans on notice that such problems have not been tolerated in the past, and certainly will not be tolerated this year. Sanctions will be swift, and will not be appealable. Every Pop Warner Association is accountable for its players, cheerleaders, coaches, administrators, parents and others from your area at all Regional and National events. Any incidents of unacceptable behavior from any person(s) affiliated in any way with your Association can mean:
- An immediate ejection from the Pop Warner Super Bowl events and WALT DISNEY WORLD property. THE ENTIRE TEAM/SQUAD ROOM BLOCK, WHICH INCLUDES EVERYONE BOOKED WITH THE TEAM, even families and friends, MAY BE EVICTED, AND MAY FORFEIT HOTEL AND OTHER DEPOSITS. The TEAM/SQUAD will be responsible for any alernative lodging off property and revised air reservations/ ticket payments as those shall not be the responsibility of Pop Warner or Walt Disney World.
- Possible lifetime ban from Disney World.
I've been on property quite a few times in the past during PW and behavior has varied from year-to-year. Let's hope a good time is had by all in 2010.
A year ago at this time we were at WDW and book at the All Stars. When we checked in we were given a free upgrade to the Beach Club because they needed the room for the Pop Warner group. It was the best ever! We didn't run into any large groups of kids at the parks either.
We are arriving at WDW Friday Dec 10th ,Anyone no when they will be=:lol: give me a L-E-A-V-I-N-G?:ROFLOL:
They leave on Saturday and Sunday. We enjoy watching them leave.
We arrive at PORS on Friday night. The only time they bothered us is at the main pool on Saturday. They get a little obnxious.
We always plan to be there rhe week after they leave. It is dead empty.:xmas:
