Trying to find out where to play

I know there is going to be different local competition trying to get more business...but i'm trying to figure out where the majority of the players go for airball, and what they shoot with as far as shooting psp or semi when playing. A few buddies and I are currently coming back to the sport after taking 1-10 years off from the sport, so any advice on local competition, tournaments, leagues, and player geographics. We are trying to get out playing either this next weekend or the following.

Thanks in advance
Evans

i just got to pick up a pod pack then i'll be set to play...also looking for the most popular place to go on the weekend. I went w/ about 15 other ppl from work to Hawaii Extreme PB and we had a blast but if it wasn't for us there would have been only like 3 other PBers there. This was on a saturday.

I was told to go there on sundays. Probably this next sunday, or the following we'll be there knocking some of the rust off.

eh, pump's never really been my thing. Is that pump tourny the 24th or the 3rd? We'll go the weekend after, unless we can get together enough people. We have 4 total with us as it is, so 2-4 more and we'd be fine playing the 3rd.

You guys should checkout Bellows Paintball. Good field. Woodsball field with awesome people. Always a good turnout Saturday or Sunday. Field paint only. Hope to see you guys there. Check them out on Facebook. Search for Bellows Paintball.

I'm not sure where you heard that there is a pump tourney at HEP but it isn't this Sunday is a great time to come. Pev from the NPPL is out and there are a lot more on Sunday than Saturday. Sundays have 20 to 30 on average at the pro field and probably 10 playing rec fields. I am out almost every weekend hope to see you out there..... Pumps are alwayse welcome several players have them every weekend.... Bellows is an ok field but they have one field that is scenario based and they just open or close portions of it to accommodate the amount of players. Paintball hawaii is a lower end turf than HEP. HEP's pro field is all laid astro turf many people who have played at the pro level have said its one of the best turfs they have played

Yea, i'm pretty sure we'll end up going out to HEP first. We've been told like 2-3x now at various stores that the pump tourny would affect the turnout at HEP for some reason. Either way we're waiting on all our gear to come in, with any luck it'll all be here this week from the main land. Its all being shipped on monday from the east coast.

I would go to bellow's but i'm more of an airball kinda guy, and my job takes me out there enough. lol

btw i went over to hawaii allstar paintball and i wasn't that impressed. the grass was really tall(2ft) where the guys were playing when i was there. the nets surrounding the fields aren't anchored down in some parts. the staff seemed cool and it is cheaper than HEP but i think i'd rather spend the money at HEP
