three years reffing in south america born in NY raised in TX now residing in Santiago, Chile
no regular field reffing, member of ASAP (agrupacion de Seguridad y Arbitros de Paintball) paintball ref and security group in English.
CSP Chile Event (it's the southamerican league under psp format)
LAPPL Chile EVENT (southmaerican league under nppl format)
cnp speedball-campeonato nacional de paintball (national championship psp format)
cnp bosque- Woodsball national championship
czp- copa zonapaintball (national 7 men championship)
copa de la amistad (frienship cup xball format)
Copa Teleton- Charity like jerry lewis marathon where on a yearly basis we play this cup and raise funds for disabled children
Total events reffed like 20 events probably more but can't remember exactly.
Asap is a group that was created that holds only refs we are close to 15 refs that ref not for a living but none of us play championships we are all former players that noticed that reffing is awesome and that very little people like to do it. So we created the group.
We don't have any certifications due to that there aren't any clinics in south america specially in Chile to get this certification no matter what kind psp or nppl or anything no certified refs here although several of us are willing to get certified in US although is it kind of expensive to fly overthere, I was planning to attend the nppl houston event since i have relatives there great family trip and get to live watch great paintballing although hurricane ike backstabbed my flight plans so won't be able to go to any event probably within a year or two.
So if anybody wants to come and certify some southamerican refs you're gladly welcomed although we don't have the bucks to bring somebody here xD
great thread hadn't seen it before.
