Talking tournament practice schedule.

Over the past few months I have been approached by any number of players wanting to "get more practice in." If you guys know me at all, you know that I will do anything to get better and that i want to see everyone around me become more comfortable with the sport and more confident in their skills. unfortunately there is only one way to do this, but luckily for us all, that one thing is within reach! I am talking of course about practice. last weekend a small group of players and myself scheduled a day at the field to get some good practice in for the tournament this coming weekend. I think it went very well and i know that the local players who showed up want to do more of it.

Once long ago in a place not far from our current location, there was a group of about 10 to 15 guys who showed up at there local field every Sunday for practice. it wasn't super intense, it wasn't scheduled, hell, it wasn't even organized. But it got results. for one thing it made Sunday the day to show up, it got allot of people who were interested in tournament paintball jump in rather than watch from the other fields because the teams were even. and it helped get myself and others allot better at the sport.

Knowing the small pool of players who want to practice more in the area, i think that making one or two Sundays out of every month "tournament practice day" would be a great thing to start up and help the beginner/intermediate class players ALOT.

so far the ones who show up are mostly local and for the most part they show up on different days so they hardly get any real practice in because there the only ones at the field. every once in a while a group from Yakima shows up to play but on only select few occasions have the two groups been at the field at the same time.

Harley and myself are always at the field and if we aren't working were practicing and I know that we would both love to see more players out there on a more regular schedule. soooooo....? who would be interested in making one or two Sundays out of the month devoted to tournament practice? it would make it alot easier to get practice in if everyone agreed on a schedule and im sure we could get a good group of guys from all over the area to show up if we had a good turnout in the beginning. but what if its to expensive to pay for field fee all the time? buy a membership that covers you for a full year. its not that expensive if you look at it from a long term perspective and you can pay monthly if you cant fork up the cash all at once.

please reply if you have any ideas or if you'd like to see this happen. i know that very soon Punishment will be at the field practicing with 4 or 5 guys allot more often, hopefully more will follow. eclipse who recently made the bump to intermediate (because they practiced) is starting to show up more often. that makes two teams who are already going to be out there so why not get more and make this beneficial to everyone?

on another note. eclipse will be at the field this Saturday and Harley and myself will be there as well (i have the weekend off) so SHOW UP.

Well said.

Also on a side note, team Punishment is looking to expand our roster. We are currnetly looking for intermediate and begginer players who are dedicated and willing to make the commitment to the team as well as our sponsors. You dont have to be good at paintball to make the team, you only need the dedication to learn. Punishment has a combined paintball experience of over 30 years, our core players are more than willing to teach anyone that wants to learn. So, come out, play, practice, learn...

According to Griffan "Harley is 50 years old" So team Punishment has over 80 years of experience!

Define the term "Gun".

Are we refering to paintball gun or my MK18?

I'm surgical with my MK18 and it shoots through bunkers! ; )

Paintball gun....... I haven't touched one in 4 years......
