Band of Brothers
Alright, so I'm playing around with the idea of setting up a 5 man tournament at Band of Brothers paintball in the month of April. As most of you may know, Band of Brothers is the "new" Paintball Hill. The new owners have put in a lot of hard work to make the field what it is now. Lexington Exodus will also be putting in many man hours in the time to come to make the field that much better. At the end of last year they bought a psp field which is a huge accomplishment for paintball in this area of the state of kentucky.
My goal here is to bring business to this up and coming field. I wanted to know how many people/teams would be interested in playing a 5 man here. This is pretty much just a suggestion thread. Give me ideas to help make this tournament the best I can for you, the players. I'm thinking it'll go something this this. 5 man open, 12.5 psp ramp, round robin format. Byop will be allowed but you will be charged a small fee for bringing paint. Field paint will also be sold on site. There will be cash prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The more teams that sign up, the cash prizes will increase in value. I will also be able to cut deals for teams that bring other teams. Meaning if you invite a team, they show up and vouch for your invitation, you will get a price cut on either entry fee or you will not be charged for byop.
So here is my questions for you. What is a fair price for the entry fee? I was thinking $175 per team ($35 per person). The price will be lowered if entry is paid in advance through paypal. What is a fair price for byop per case? what can I do to attract teams? I will need a minimum of ten teams to make this happen.
1st x amount of $
2nd half of what is paid for first
3rd money back for entry
Trophies will also be awarded to each team 1st - 3rd.
If this tournament is a big hit, there will also be events held in June and August (there are no MSXL or SEPS events in either of those months).
