No it wasn't the angle. We discussed that already. Look again at the line of the bunkers in the back, all are perfectly straight.

day 7- sunday

after the final game is played, the champagne is poured, and everyone goes home, work is just beginning for the operations crew.



after the fields have ended all of their games, i go in and start deflating the bunkers.





after the bunkers have deflated, i stuff them into huge transport bags and place them on pallets so a forklift can pick them up.



after all of the bunkers and paintballs are removed, the field is ready to have the netting dropped and cables rolled up.



i stayed for a bit after i packed up the first field to show you what the night crew does. these guys stay for hours after the last game is played and do a fantastic job of removing all the paintballs and trash from the fields and pits.











can you tell where the bunker used to be? lol

the person in charge of running the night shift is dominick. if you remember from past nppl events, he would dance on center court during cleaning breaks. you can thank him for the clean pit areas and squeegeed bunkers every morning of the tournament.



my final day is tomorrow, will have more pics tomorrow night!

day 8- monday after tournament

we didnt use the forklifts today, so the nets and poles remained up. i finished packing up the bunkers from the other 2 fields. some of the crew was busy getting the vendor trailers out of the sand with the plywood road.

cp


spyder


as you can see, all of the vendors have packed up and left. just piles of trash and empty tents.

paintball gateway/trinity corner


looking from cp trailer area towards registration


the rest of the crew had the most tedious job of the event-sifting through the sand BY HAND and removing all of the paintballs from the field and pit areas.





after all the paintballs were picked up from the turf on the field, we pulled back the turf on the perimeter and hand sifted through that as well.



i know i already posted these pics, but i added a third pic of today.

monday 30th



thursday 2nd



today 6th

That is such a tedious task is right! How many hours and men does it take to hand sift through it all?
