It has happened what like 3 times...easy negative nancy.
The issue we had with the Shock Kids program and there were several...teams wanted to move up after just one season. That and most did not realize how much it cost to play a whole season.
In any case you have to determine what the real reason for the Combine. That and who will run it for what reason?
Having a combine is not an issue...deciding on a neutral place for it to be held along with where the fees go to have such and event will cause the issues.
We now have what 4 or 5 leagues taking place here in the greater Chicagoland area/ MW. MWXL, CPL, MSXL, MPPL, and the Vicious series... The more events, the less pie you get and more division among teams and fields.
In Boston, the combine is used 1 to teach and educate players on technical skills, 2 to show them off to teams that play in the NEPL/NEXL. Both of these leagues are run by Boston paintball.
I could go on for a while on this...I do think that it is a great idea to have one of these events here in the MW...
Let's get together and make it happen
