I think the requirement is a full-time student with a declared major, and I do believe grad students count. I know Im clear because Im still an undergrad. Actually Im pretty sure grad students count, because Kyle is a grad student.

Definitely. I'm a graduate student myself. Anyone enrolled is allowed to join.

Taken from NCPA bylaws: 2) A "college player" is any undergraduate or graduate student in full or part time attendance at an accredited college or university who participates in the sport of paintball.

I hope it goes well. I will be out of town this weekend and some of the other Point Blank guys will be working at the field. Maybe i'll be able to get off work for the next one.

I want to clarify a few things about the practices we will be holding.

1.They are meant to be a way for Arkansas paintballers to get together and grow our community in the state. A decade ago, the Arkansas tournament community was a much tighter group than we are now. I, and others, think it is time we get back to that.

I am not saying we all liked each other and would have giant sleep overs together. I am saying that in spite of our differences, we practiced together, we were all welcome at each other's fields, and we all competed against each other for the love of the sport.


To all the teams that are coming out, please, come out with the mindset of respect for your fellow player. Respect them because they showed up. Respect them because they love the sport. Respect them because, just like you, they want to be better at our sport. It doesn't matter if a team shows up and sucks so bad their mother won't claim them, respect them for having the balls to strap on their gear and play.

2. They are practices, not tournaments. Don't cheat yourself and your team by cheating in a practice. It only makes other teams angry and serves only to weaken your game. We all want to have teams to practice against. Don't ruin the opportunities we have by straining those relationships for something as infantile as cheating during a practice.

3. We need to make the most of the time we have available. The practice schedule will be run as a race to 2 between two teams, with other players reffing. Then, two other teams will rotate in a do the same. So, bring extra pods onto the field with you to refill between points.

4. Please thank Rusty at Splat Action while you are there for letting us use his excellent field for practice.

5. Please, if you enjoy yourself, make plans to come back. This is strictly an effort by my team to have fun on a good field with good competition. We are putting up all the money and time to make it happen. Things will not be perfect, but they will be the best we can make them.

6. Leave it all on the field. I don't care if Jonpon and Plastic from JL get in a fist fight over who didn't cover what lane, but leave it on the field. Don't bring it back here to the internet. It is pointless and does nothing to further our sport.

I just want to say thank you to the teams who have said they are going to show up. We will be playing rain or shine. The number of teams we have coming is awesome for a first practice. The next, we should be able to add a couple more with the Untouchables being able to come (screw that guys wedding), and maybe Legacy will be able to make it.

Anyway, like each other or not, let's do what we can to be able to show up and shoot at each other on a consistent basis. I love you all.
Certainly we will behave, but if someone sucks more than one of our players I reserve the right to point them out and inform my bros to "never be like that guy". Usually our attitudes on the field stem from competition and I encourage that, agree that cheating is unacceptable and nothing is gained, and internet trash talk is not my department.. otherwise looking forward to practice.

Didn't catch that before -- rest assured, Jonpon would win the fight.

But really, can I stay at your place, Clay?

we are staying in Conway with my brother .

Clay.. race to 2 format is a good idea , but with amount of teams and players going to be there.. we should modify it a little bit.. maybe have two teams racing at the same time ... IE .. Teams 1 and 2 play, Teams 3 and 4 are on the side line ready.. to play.. During the 2 minute break for teams 1 and 2 , teams 3 and 4 should play. and while they are playing its basically the 2 minute break.. this would allow more game time .

I only suggest this because we played in Springfield a few weeks ago , and they ran the race to 2 style of play .. and most of the teams just sat on the sidelines all day .. lots down time that could be slashed with my suggestion.

Yeah, I think Clay said there were 3 people looking to form a pick up team to jump in games and I think Tony is looking too so with you that'd make 5 for another team.
