I thought the reffing was consistent. It wasnt strict or loose a nice medium but more importantly it really didnt matter what side of the field you were on or start or end of the day the refs called it pretty much the same. I want to give a special shout out to the ref with the yellow and black ref jersey that got in the snake to check a pack and then crawled along with him as he bumped to try to get a better look. Great effort.
I thought that paint shot straight, it was a little bouncy but the humidity was more of a reason then the quality of the paint and it impacted everyone equally.
I thought the sportsmanship was pretty good by all the teams not a lot of bonus balling or anger just good hard fought paintball.
The facilities left a little to be desired. I was frustrated by the problems with the air hoses and I really felt bad that during one of the matches we had to go into the other pit. It really messes with a team if they cant talk game planning because the other team is coming in and out.
I also may be a little pampered from the fields I have played at but I thought staging could have more. However the staff did a great job and worked hard to make it the best event they could.
I also applaud Jeff for putting the even out west to at least give the opportunity for CT and West mass teams to have an easy drive and also give a chance for the NY teams to play even if they did not come out. It was a little more expensive but hey who doesnt like a road trip.
see you next time everyone
and sorry we had to leave early but most of my guys are high schoolers and we had two borrowed cars
it really sucked that you guys had to leave I was looking forward to the rematch with 187!!!!
