What is a real grind? Is that where you hold your barrel and look pretty when you slide?

Playing in the snow is cool a couple times but it isnt practical. Paintball isnt exactly the most profitable industry, most field owners are in the business because they love the game as well. If they cant meet ends meet in the winter because lets face it... more people play paintball in the summer i dont see why you are calling them out. Truth is you should man up and drive to an indoor if you want to *****, or open your own field.

As for indoor paintball not being the same... no ****, the same can be said about any sport: no wind, no weather, no divots in the field. I think its safe to say indoor is a pretty fair alternative. The real issue here is you dont want to drive to play at an indoor which is a personal issue.

i'd love to play in the snow/cold but my poor hand circulation holds me back a tad from doing it. the pain is pretty bad and end up not having any fun/learning anything. sucks that wz closed up for me.

There are a lot of contradictions in this post starting with the op and continuing with others.

- out of 13 teams from Ohio at psp World Cup 9 went on to Sunday play

- imperial took first place in 2 of 5 events, took podium in 4 and took national series championship in the best league in the world.

- I won't say that there is never a issue between teams at Tpa but Mike Gilbert is the savior if we are going together. Mike has tried numerous times this yea to get people together to come as well and grind through the ranks.

- that I know about unless its a lightning storm mike never closes a practice or a tournament for rain. Op brought up the fact of practicing through weather in Florida. We end up playing in the same weather as t Scruggs posted before. I remember a practice pre Mao where I fried a board and two lens distorted from playing in the downpour. But playing in the snow is not good business as a speed ball player. Snow is terrible on sup air bunkers, equipment and paint.

- I have no problem driving 4 hours to practice teams during the winter. Yes I will agree that indoor is not the same as grass outdoor. But playing 6 hours a weekend at a indoor is much better than bundling up and playing in a foot of snow. Where it's nothing like real play. Your shot isn't going to break on the player wearing snow pants and a double sweatshirt.

I guess all I have to say is that there are a lot of great teams in Ohio and we are far from dead. After a year like this I can be nothing but excited for 2013's prospects. If your looking for a good teams to practice there are a lot in the north east. And I heard of a decent amount in the south area though I haven't had the chance to go down and play. Get ahold of any of these teams I know there always looking for good teams to practice.

- imperial
- Tpa house team
- effect
- eminence
- Akron college ( 7th in the nation )
- kent state
- Ohio power
- Ohio havoc
- misfit mafia
- fuse
An many more

With so many teams in this area we are a very strong state. With a lot of field owners that would do anything for the players. Unfortunately living in this part of the country isn't easy to practice all year round hence the huge paintball following in southern Cali and places its warm all the time.

If your above a d3 player ability start a following and build a d2 team or d1 there would be a lot of people to try out. If your not above that skill level it doesn't matter what others are playing at. Keep playing and get better as a player all of those teams can help you there.

If you would like to contact any of these teams I will do my best to put you in touch.

That's why we have so much in-fighting, because we are all trying to become that team.

It doesn't have to be a *****-fest. We routinely travel down to Asylum and have very intense grinds, but everyone respects each other. That just doesn't happen in Ohio.
This happens in every state. Ohio is no exception. Personally I think we are all getting along well. All of us Akron/TPA/Cleveland ballers make it down to Xscape here and there. Tyler I would travel to Creek more and so would everyone else if it wasn't a 5hr drive.

It does kill playing surface though, and we had only one other team to play against at two of those sessions.






And for the record since your randomly throwing Colorado out there no one practices outside in the winter in CO. How can you practice on literally sheets of ice through a foot of POW? If your saying no one in OH practices because it is "just cold out" your wrong there as well - players play when there is a turnout. As stated and reinforced in this thread - it simply is not economical to keep fields open in the winter. Field owners are running a business, which you obviously do not understand. I do like the idea of one field staying up during the winter as the main hub for winter grinds. Dimensions LCC, DropZone, & Pinacle stay open nearly year round. Considering the elements that we see up in NE OH - this is impressive. When I lived in CO there were 3 fields in the entire state worth playing at. The only one open in winter (on the reg) was a ghetto indoor facility in the Denver Warehouse District. Too much snow. Seriously where are you from and what are you thinking that good practice would come out of playing in more than 3" or 4" of snow? To risk an injury is another factor.

It's pretty baller that we may have to sit inside or drive 4-5 hours to play indoor during the winter and our divisional teams are still beating out teams like CFP, acDallas, GI Paintball; areas of the US where the weather permits year round play. Why are there some many ballers out of southern california? Because its gorgeous everyday in SoCal.

When you have facilities like Plex & Asylum (with in a respectable driving distance) accompanied by a lot of good talent showing up every weekend - that is where the players will practice. Regardless of what state or climate - players are going to play where the competition is.

And what are you talking about Willis? Ohio reps the up n coming Tippman Effect killers, Ex-Rogue players, Ex-Punishers, Ex-Less Than Zero, Ex-Dynasty, Ex- Aftershock pros and we house PSP and NPPL divisional contenders all over.

Ohio is great place to ball.

The options are there to continue to practice over the winter, just comes down to how committed you are.

You can play in the snow it just blows and alot of players in ohio are gunwhore 5 year D5 players who sandbag because they like to feel good about themselves. The teams around me are Ohio nightmare, Cincinnati Paintball and Fuse, I'm going to try to get on fuse pups when the go back to cabin creek, simply based on the fact i dont have a way to get to asylum.

sometimes when I play in the winter I put my hands down my pants before the games so it warms them up and I can walk my trigger fast. Its tuned to perfection. So what my fingers get alittle stinky/sticky.
