Paint Info:
All OVPPL events in 2010 are EVENT PAINT ONLY. We will have 2 grades of paint available from $50-$55 a case. Teams will not be able to use paint from a previous event at another event in the Series. Each event will have a different color fill as we want to make sure we offer great paintball that are fresh.

Player Misconduct:

Player misconduct penalties can be assessed by any judge on the field, as well as the Ultimate Judge. Any action deemed to be player misconduct can result in a 1 for 1 penalty, 2 for 1 penalty, suspension, and or ejection. Actions deemed inappropriate can include swearing, hostile physical contact between individuals, throwing equipment, or just being a poor sport and making the event less fun for other players (this includes counter-coaching, etc) The staff at Pittsburgh Paintball Sports Complex has the right to remove any player from the premises.

Color Rule:
We will be lenient, for this is still a local series.
Some Clothing Rules:
All players must wear long pants and a long-sleeve jersey type shirt. Player clothing may not have excessive holes, rips, tears, or anything else that would inhibit a Referee’s ability to monitor a player.

Metal and ceramic spikes and cleats are not allowed. Track spikes are acceptable as long as the spikes have been removed(rubber golf spikes are excellent). This is done to ensure the safety of players, staff, and the fields.

Spectators:
Spectators are encouraged to come out and support their team. All that we ask is that fans respect the officiating staff as well as all of the players at the event. Counter-coaching will not be allowed by any player or spectator. Again foul language will not be tolerated.

Media:
Those who wish to take photos on field must get prior approval. Please email us info@pittsburghpaintballsportscomplex.com

List of Approved Media:
1. Team House Media
2.
3.
4.
5.

Field Layout:
We will post 3 field layouts via pbnation where players will have the opportunity to vote on the layout of their choice. The layout with the most votes will then be chosen 2 weeks prior to the event date.

Stolen Entry Fees?

Problem resolved. Refund has been received. However this was not a simple or quick fix. Thank you to brophy for taking care of this issue.

Our team (the only team to pre-pay $750 for all events) Simply wants a refund for a tournament that clearly will not happen.

I am making this post to elicit a response from the Field/League directly.

If I do not get a response in the next 24 hours (8:00PM Thursday) I will be forced to take legal action against the league and all parties included.

Thank You,

Dennis - Misfit Mafia, BonusBallPaintball.com, and former MyPaintballWorld.com
Or you could have left that off of here..thats how **** starts. I doubt the money was stolen

Our team's entry fee was refunded within 24 hours of me calling them... our fee for our appa specific card for the ovpl has yet to be refunded however ($30)...I fault the appa for that and do not hold ppsc responsible, however it would be nice if they would have a representative call the appa directly and attempt to have our fees refunded.

Problems start when 3rd parties feel the need to comment without knowing details.

We did get our refund, but it took multiple attempts to contact the field over a 4 week span. Posting here was a last resort that proved necessary and successful.

Since this situation only referred to entry fees APPA had nothing to do with it.

In the end, fees were refunded as requested, no hard feelings are had, and we continue to support the field and its owners.

Thank you
