From my experience you are far better off just having signups available but no payment option to begin with. Mention if enough teams sign up, it will go ahead, and if not enough, then it will be cancelled. There are many lurkers out there who will not bother to respond to an expression of interest post, but I'm quite confident if signups go up you'll find 16 willing teams. My only issue is the entry fee as it may deter a lot of amateur teams. Apart from that, it looks good, and I'm looking forward to it.
