Hi HaloLT,

May I suggest that you do it by your preferred way and that is to add a map.

Google Maps will allow what you wish.

For this application there is a fair amount of work to do. You would need to first subscribe to Google maps.

Create Points. placemarks, for each tournament place on the map.

Generate the HTML given by Google and embed it on your website.

Your readers would then pan around the map and locate your place makers and see the places that you have marked. You can annotate each place with dates and descriptions of the upcoming tournament.

I have created similar applications and it works. The slowest point is setting up the placemarks.

Good luck and get back to me if you want further explanation. Most of the info is available in Google Maps.

Hi haloLT,

Affirmative for all your questions.

The home point is set by you. This is set when you save your map. So affirmative on that one.

If you want an opening map for all your states, God Bless a big project! Then you would have to create each of these map states and provide links to each state. Panning would probably be the easiest way to set it up. Up to you of course.

Halo,

I'm happy to collaborate with you until you get going. It means adding me as a collaborator to your Google Maps. (Left of the Edit key)
