Taking the initiative (need help)

Ok guys, here are the facts

1.) I love paintball
2.) Peru is not the best place for paintball lovers

There are almost no tourneys here (maybe one a year plus the LAPPL (latin american professional league) which is expensive like a *****...

SO...

I've decided that I should stop being such a whiny ***** and organize my own tournament.

Not a pro thing but a all-levels-and-markers-welcome type thing.

I was thinking 3 man...teams who don't have their own equipment use rentals...byop...

any guidelines for organization, prizes etc.?

thanks

Do a 3 man as your first. This will give you a good gauge of the interest in the tournament scene. I would probably do two divisions, Open (byop, gear, etc) 12.5 bps cap, and a youth (ages 10-15, use rental guns, pod and maybe one hopper of paint per game, something like Chicago did.) If those are a success then you can maybe start a series and work it up from 3 man to 5 man and maybe XBALL one day. But don't rush it.
