nm team with questions

i am a member of New Mexico scenario/speedball team Beavertown Mafia we are thinking of joining the fun and games in the 2011 season. My first question is how much paint did you guys use. How much average was it to make the journey eat and play. Finally is there gonna be an 2011 season.

Most definitely there will be a 2011 season! I would expect some changes to be made division wise, but all signs are positive for league growth I believe.

Cost of an event for a team is going to depend on how far you travel (ie, which regionals you go to and how many). Same goes for paint. Does your team shoot a lot? All electros?

I would say have 2 cases per player and have enough cash to buy 1 more case each. Then just put the paint into a team pot so that way the heavy gunner isnt spending a fortune and the pump guy is getting by with a bag. Then if there is paint left over split it up evenly and return it to the players for use at the next practice or however they wish.

Split the entry fee between everyone. Same thing with hotels, car rentals, fuel. Plain tickets should be up to the individual though.

I am pretty sure the uwl is coming back in 2011. The skills division will likely see major changes. Open and tactical will likely not change as much. But these first few years will see changes happening constantly to tweak the format and make the league better and more sustainable over the long haul.

Actually being in NM you guys are sitting pretty nicely for gas. You got cali, Nevada, and Texas regionals all SEMI close to you. we have a bit of a drive here in Nebraska. and when you divide it up within the team, Gas isn't too bad at all...

Ditto what Dan said.

Double ditto what Bignasty said! Encourage, prod, lead by example....keep hammering your guys to play honest out there. Teams that wipe or keep playing on until refs see them hit, especially those who do it on a consistent basis build a negative reputation very fast in this league. One of the primary reasons is that 95% of the guys out there are straight up, honest, clean playing ballers in the UWL. There is a lot of class and integrity in the tournies these guys put on. So those who are not playing honest ball stick out like a sore thumb. This league is all about competing in an atmosphere that is competitive, but low tension if that makes sense. It is not DO OR DIE at all costs mentality. Rather, let's have some fun playing with friends, and against friends in a very competitive format. If you keep that in the back of your minds at all times, not only will you love it...but the rest of the league will love you too! lol

In 10 man woods, teamwork is essential. No question about it. For more tips, head to the UWL boards as Dan said. Great place for info.

once again thanks for all your guys help i will get on that forum, i have read the rules a couple times and its there that i get my questions just some stuff isnt clear at least to me. And my team has tried to be upstanding ballers, here in new mexico we dont have many organized fields actually there is only twoin our area, and well its up to us to play clean ball. we started a bunch of guys that had fun together and slowly the idea of becoming a team happened. its love of playing that we want to play in this tourny we wanna get our team name out. i cant wait to meet and play with you guys.

My friend...that is how most of the good teams start in my opinion. Friends playing together form this thing called a team. The rest is history. You guys sound like a great addition to the league and we would all love to have you guys playing with us next year, or even at Nationals! You wouldn't have a shot at the season title, but you guys could win that event!

Does the Beavertown Mafia have a website yet?
