A staging area is my main suggestion, and you are already on that. Having a designated chrono station with a large, stationary chrono would be nice. I had a pod shattered from across the field. Not everyone is as safety conscious as they should be and tracks down the hand held.

Change up the layout every month or so. Everyone loves a fresh layout. Some netted deadboxes wouldnt be a bad idea. Especially for a tournament.


I could not agree with this more. A closer staging area would not only be more convenient but also eleminate some hassel and confussion.

Also i agree with the paint situations.
Grafiti was terrible. It seemed to only break on the obvious hard spots. such as pods and markers. So forget laning.

As for the Ranking Limitations... I don't agree... I feel the idea is to make money for the field. So why would we want to limit who can play. The more money the Field makes the more improvements they can make on the Facility. And nobody should feel discouraged from playing just because there is a good team. The only way to get better is to play against those who are alot better then you. However i do know that alot of people will in fact be discouraged. So i recomend giving the noobies a reason to go out there and spend there money. Such as putting up a prize for the best sportsman ship. I know its a little far fetched but put up a prize for the best cinderella team.

Oh and Coop or who ever is running that hurlburt account. I can get you some throphies or medals done for dirt cheap.. Pretty much at cost. So hit me up and i can get that done for you.

I think the paint issue is freshness. Im not sure if you buy str8 from valken or another distributor. But I have shot all of valkens paint and it is not bad. Although Draxxus has the most breaks of paint, graffiti, redemptionm, and crusade are all good paint, but sitting in FL temps wears em down.

My suggestion for the field would be to run an air line to the Speedball field, maybe only open it for tourneys. Also maybe some netting with bleachers behind them, cuz your gonna get more people to play if you get more people to watch. Also maybe two pits of some sort for the teams that are playing or getting ready to play.

I was going to say air line but it's a bit of a stretch.. literally and you also have to factor in that the cars would run over it unless it was buried but that would also mean it would be permanent and the natural elements...
