The County Cup is nothing more than a tourney at this point.
It is just another Seacoast/Rinks at Exeter money maker.
When the tourney was first created, the intention was great and generally everyone followed residence rules.
However, in the last 3-4 years it has been dominated by Seacoast coaches and players. They submit half the teams playing and play in any county that works. There is no verification of residence and no interest to keep it to it's originally intended roots.
and all of that is OK. Just know what it is.
The GSCC tournament director works for Spartans and the rink. He only cares that teams are filled and money is coming in. While the idea behind the tourney is great, the director would actually need to work to make sure the rules are followed and he will put as little effort in as possible.
