There is some local interest at the QuickShot Paintball Field in Shamong, NJ to start a pump paintball tournament series, and we would like to gauge interest from the pumpers on PBNation to get feedback on what individuals and teams would be looking for in the series.
QuickShot already has a solid SupAir field that is easily fielded as a 5 man speedball field. We also have a substantial woodsball field that is constantly developing and being improved upon. The location is within 1.5 - 2 hours of New Jersey (obviously), Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, New York and we would love to be able to provide premium pump paintball tournaments to the area. Thats where YOU come in. What we want to know is what sort of tournament series would appeal to the most players in the Tri-State area.
We would like to try the format over the Winter (starting in late November, early December) with as many teams who continue to play over the colder months. We would probably limit this to the woodsball for the Winter and focus on starting "Season 1" in the Spring with a game every month from around April through October. The events would be field paint only, however multiple grades of paint are available for purchase and would allow teams to choose which paint they would like to shoot. We would encourage teams to pre-register so that those travelling longer distances were guaranteed the best tournament possible.
We are looking into a 3/5/7 man tournament series which would rotate between woodsball and airball. As it stands the heaviest interest is in open class pump 5-man format, however we would like to hear from you and if this is something your teams would be interested in.
Thanks for your time and any feedback.

Just so we dont hold anyone's weekend plans up, this event will have to be rescheduled due to a lack of availability from the majority of interested parties.
We will aim for something early next year however we will keep this thread going for those with interest or ideas for the event between now and then. Please post here of PM me with any questions. Thanks again guys!
