i love the rest USPL ftw
i also say d3 teams should be on saturday because for me and probably alot of others paintball players i play school sports so i already miss some school already so missing more is hard to keep up

I think having D3 play on Saturday would be better as previously mentioned they are normally younger, but perhaps over the summer to make it fair have D3 play on Friday and let D2 play on Saturday, then when the summer ends go back to D3 on Saturday.

Just an idea, you could use this as a test year and if it works implement it in the long run but if it doesn't work out then stick with D3 on Saturday all season long.

Best of luck this year

I definitely agree that saturday would be awesome for d3 to play all 8 games. Less travel time and less time away from school. Saving more money and not failing classes. Huge plus.

Looking at Scheduling there are a number of ways it can work from what I know! So please do not throw me under the bus!
Eg 1- Pros ,Div 1, Div 2 only play Friday and Div 3 and 5 man play Saturday only
Eg 2 - Pros, Play Friday only- All Divisional Teams Play both Days and 5 man teams play Saturday only.
Eg3- Pros play Friday, Division 1 and 5 man Play Saturday only and Divisional 2 and 3 play both Days.

Pump is being looked at for Sunday as a All Day Prelim and playoffs.

If the Pros play on Friday then D-1 should play on Saturday so that the fans have some fun paintball to watch on Saturday also.

you should make a thread with a poll
but personally i would prefer sat/sun for divisional because it will be easier to make events during the school year

#3. If the pros play on Friday. I would think you would want Div 1 to play on Saturday to draw the crowds to some exciting games. Sunday takes care of itself because of the finals.

i kinda like 2 days. it allows teams to go to the hotel and re-work strategies and discuss what works and doesnt work for the next day. plus it allows you from being knocked out within the first day.

Why is everyone so worried about the younger kids missing school?

Minimizing the classes college kids miss seems more important to me, I know I didn't give a **** how much class I missed in high school.
