Check Location/Venue Availability when scheduling Games/Events

When scheduling a Game or an Event SportsEngine should check to see if the location/venue is already scheduled at the given time. With multiple league directors and schedulers adding games as a result of games being cancelled there is nothing to prevent them from double booking a field. This creates a bad experience as communications go out about a new time/location for an event and then it has to be adjusted once the conflict is realized.

Additionally the location/venue should be added as a tag to the game so it could be filtered for on the Calendar so someone can check the field availability easily. I've had to create a work around to this by creating a "team" for each field we have and then after creating a game, going back in and adding an additional tag for the field"team" so we can check this on the calendar. But I have to give additional permission to people to see these teams so they can access the tags.

    Thanks for the feedback, Peter! We are actively working on an update that would allow you to specify locations and facilities and track conflicts with the schedule. Would love to setup some time to take you through the pre-alpha build! Watch for an email from me.
