So I uploaded all pics to my Facebook, and uploaded pics that I edited to my website (sig). The ones on my site will be a lot better simply because Facebook compresses the images when you upload them.

Hate I had to miss to such a good day to play! I will see y'all next byop.

Has anyone talked to the zorns about maybe offering a membership that will allow you to bring your own paint every weekend? I think it's about time for this to happen

Yes, I have spoken with David about it... so has Jason and Philip. David seemed very interested in it... he wanted to crunch some numbers to come up with the yearly membership price. He also said we would need to help ensure that people are not playing for free on the front field.

I think the next step would be to get a commitment form started, so they can see how many are truly willing to pony up money for a "Anyday BYOP for Airball" yearly pass.


On a side note, I'm selling a beautiful "Desert Edge Ego X"... if anyone wants it locally, I'll cut them deal since it's less of a hassle and no shipping fees. Link is in my sig.

thats not a bad idea i think it would go well and the making sure everyone pays is pretty well taken care from what i have seen. To lock in a commitment you have to make sure everything that is talked about on the front end comes to life on the back end.

I'm very interested in byop membership(already member). but will there still be an entry fee each time as well?
I wont say prices online/in public, but WE all know the cost of a case plus entry on byop, but being a member I can go play today,get air/field for free and buy a case of evil for just an extra handful of change. so why do I need this membership?

I'm not speaking for anyone other than myself... but the idea would be for a year pass (Entry & Air included) for BYOP on EVERY Sunday but just for the Airball field.

I'm sure they will do some market analysis from regional fields to see what the fee would be.

For example, Xtreme paintball (hosting the Pro Clinic, today) offers memberships for $300 a year (which includes Air, Entry, and a great shooting, bright orange fill paint at a discounted price of $50/case) ... but it is still a field paint only facility. Otherwise, the field fee & air is $15 and a case of Field Paint is $60.

2013 at Xtreme -
If you played every Sunday and used 1 case - without a membership
$3900 - ($75 per day of play x 52 Sundays)

If you played every Sunday and used 1 case - with a membership
$2900 - ($50 per day of play x 52 Sundays)

In that case, the membership saves you $1000... IF you played every Sunday.

Or, if you played for at least 30 Sundays, then you break even on the $300 membership with your $10 paint discount.

not knocking extreme at all but their prices have always been kinda high and the outdoor field was good but not great and hard as a rock and from normal membership of $100 ( me personally ) dont see anyone paying $300 a year when the field that closed was only $165 a year for BYOP and air if my memory is right. We all know the money is not made on the airball field if it were say $150 i think you would have a better bite than $300 and up... it just my opinion tho if you want to have more business you offer a service and make it obtainable by more people with a cost effective price.

Yea, I'm only pointing what the prices were at Xtreme, as one point of comparison. I have no influence or say in what is ultimately decided at MPP, just to be clear.

In comparison at MPP, $100 membership + ($10 * 26 Sundays) = $260

Cool, just not gonna pay a lump sum up front and entry each weekend.One or the other.
Either way the new field was an investment of time and money, and yes the speedball field is not the cash cow, but every weekend it goes unused is still a loss right?

Yea, looking at the numbers... it would be brutal on the wallet to play EVERY weekend. I'd likely play games on 1st and 3rd... and would rather set up a "clinic" on the other Sundays, still getting skilled practive in but not going through so much paint.

I think that the memberships should be like CHF was, just fee and air and they did the 15% discount on most items in the shop. MPP can partner with EZ Paintball and possibly do the 15% discount for their shop as well.

But I think if they start doing BYOP every weekend we will be splitting up the bodies for the 1st and 3rd. As in half the players have a membership and decide to play this weekend (30th?) and so 2 weeks from now they don't want to go out to play due to something like money problems. Then, instead of the 20-30 we get on a 1st and 3rd, it is now cut to about 10-20.

There's nothing wrong with 10-20 people showing up its when you get below that is the problem. I can usually afford to play every weekend especially now that I no tournaments to pay for

Asylum is hosting a clinic in a few weeks with Nicky Cuba and Thomas Taylor. Details are in the link. I wish I was still in the area.

Have any of you guys had a MacDav gun? I'm looking at a clone GT. Everything I've read says it the best spoolie out today. I also know that everyone that has a paintball gun says their gun is the best in the world.
