If I run out I make a trip for more Saturday night or buy a bottle or three at the concessions stand. But I don't recall ever walking up to the insertion grabbing a cup, and drinking field water.

But Sparky is right. Since the plan fell through CPX was working hard to provide. They had referees running back and forth in a truck trying to keep water coolers at each end full. However, if you consider the scope of what you are talking about, they would just about need to sink a well at each end of the field to keep up with 700 players at each insertion wanting free cups of water as well as expecting to fill their canteens, camelbacks, and wash their goggles with it.
absolutely. This a paintball event, not social services If you need something..bring it. If you run out..get some more. Having water at the dead box was a bonus and is much appreciated. Keep up the good work !!

i dont think our team used the water at the dead boxes once. we had 10 cases for the whole weekend, and it was still relatively cool after sitting out all day (they were in the hotel fridges every night though)

I hadn't looked at this thread for awhile, and just read all the comments over last month.. highly entertaining.

I pretty much agree with everyone above, a 3rd team is only fun for those who are privileged enough to be on it.

Although I thought the evil was awesome, and I think they did a good job of supplying FREE water.. something I didn't expect

Great event.. I'll be back next year!

anyone concerned about water during the game check these out you can stick a straw in them and close the lid and when you open it theirs a straw and you can drink it with your mask on and you dont need a special pack to use them

no theres not. the ones they are selling are not like the ones in the video. it is a canteen made to fit in your pod pack. it does not come with a straw.
