True Paintball Airball/Speedball/Tourney Practice Thread...

I get a lot of questions about when practices, scrimmages, drills or plain old fun days are being held on our blow-up field. Having a central place to find current date/time/format info is one of the hardest parts for players trying to figure out when to play.

Goal of this Thread
I'm going to hard link to this thread from True Paintball, Facebook and probably a couple of other places. I'm hoping this thread will help those looking to find out when the next gathering on the speedball field will be.

Keep The Thread Clean
It is important that we not post everything that pops into our heads. There are lots of other places to have a good time sharing banter with friends. Lets keep this thread limited to posting info and questions about upcoming practices. If you need extended dialog, take it offline.

How to use this PbNation stuff to find out when others are playing/practicing
The purpose of this thread is to find out just that. Just read the most recent posts to find out when people are going to be setting up a practice. Some day this thread may be many pages long, and the very newest posts will be the lowest post on the last page. If this is the case, you can view the most recent posts by clicking on "Last" link in the page navigator on the right. I'd recommend coming around often to keep up on what's been happening. You can subscribe to this thread to send updates to your email using the "Thread Tools" menu on the right.

For general questions about PBNation click here: to go to the Frequently Asked Questions section.

Format for posting a new practice:

Date:
Setup Time:
Start Time:
Cleanup Time:
Practice Host:
Cleanup Host:

Describe the format and goals of the practice below. Other information such as if the teams will be practicing together or scrambled would be listed here. Also, if you have a schedule put that in the description also.

example:
Date: March 24, 2012
Setup Time: 9:00am
Start Time: 10:30am
Cleanup Time: 2:00pm
Setup Host: Boise Faction (squad a)
Cleanup Host: Dominators (squad b)

The day will start out by doing drills hosted by Faction until 11:30am. After that we'll mix up folks and play scrambled teams until 1:00pm, after which we'll keep teams together and practice for USXLGPPL National Cup. All practice this day will restrict side coaching and ramping.



A couple of words about hosting a practice
Hosting a practice is a "privilege". This is usually a lot of thankless hard work, but we haven't found a better way to do it. If your team would like to host a practice, contact me and I'll let you know what the requirements are (and they are not easy). Teams will not be hosting a practice until they have proven to the community that they know how to take care of the bunkers and equipment and know how to leave things nicer than they were found. Teams hosting a practice must also have high conduct and sportsmanship standards. Leadership skills are a must as the team holding the practice must require this of all players. New players are always welcome.

Who needs to help?.... hopefully everyone
If the field is making all this money why do the players setup the field? Shouldn't the employees just have it setup all the time? Those are good questions. We hear them all the time. If you want the detailed answer, stop by and see me sometime and we can go through the True Paintball's books. We cannot supply staff to operate this part of the business; we would lose money and would do much better to extend the resources for other uses. Without this type of help from our customers, our blow-up field would be phased out. If you're playing on it, lend a hand. It's a small community.

Saturdays are still a go for now, sucks though. Tournament this weekend, and then the following weekend a good portion of us are traveling to practice at different locations. The following weekend is our last practice before we go to WCPS in Yacolt. I'll be there the Saturday of that weekend though if people want to play, I can always use some recball to help me get ready to play a tourny.

*This practice was info stolen from Dubby's Thread*

Date: Sunday May 13
Setup Time: 9am
Start Time: 10am (or when the field is inflated)
Cleanup Time: After everyone has had too much heat to continue (probably between 2pm-4pm)
Practice Host: Boise Faction (Jared "Dubby" Wilson)
Cleanup Host: Everyone that participates in practice.

Setup/Cleanup Notes
EVERYONE needs to come help with setup and cleanup. Faction will be directing the action and doing their share of the work, but they need (and deserve) your help. Don't show up late and leave early. This is a tiny paintball community and everyone knows if you're one of those creeps. I know everyone will help, but I gotta keep you frosty.

Format:
This is the practice to make it to if you can only come out every few weeks. Get in and setup and play as much as you can before it gets hot.
- WCPS Format
- 5 man ramping capped at 12.5.

Beginner friendly, Super expert friendly, load up the hopper and go play!

We are planning to do our legendary Thursday Development/Hopperball Night this summer. We will be running the 2nd and 4th Thursday this summer. Setup and field size will depend on the size of the crowd, so let us know if you plan to come! We are hoping for a top quality full practice. We won't be putting too much emphasis on squad development, but instead developing core personal skills and fixing problems/bad habbits. This is about being easy and having fun. I've taken a year off playing speedball and look forward to spending some time on the field with all of you. Hope to see you out there.
