We have been playing UWL since it started and played SPPL before that. If you have a place to practice I would be willing to try to get some of the FtF guys down to help you guys get your team going and field set up. We are hoping to play both 5 man and 10 man this year.
I am planning on starting our UWL practices sometime in March. We usually practice at Splat Shack Paintball as I am the field owner but we also practice at other fields from time to time as well.
If you are starting a new team I would recommend that you start out in Tactical. Make sure your guys have the funds to play and choose events accordingly. Travel can be costly for 10 man teams but can be very rewarding as well. We have traveled to many fields and I can honestly say they all have been unique. Some are open and some are dense. You can learn something from each type of field you play.
Also be sure to read the rules. Let me know if you have any questions that I can help you with. It would be great to see another UWL team form here in Ohio. Let me know if FtF can be of any assistance to you guys. For more info on our team or field check us out on facebook at Failure to Flatline or Splat Shack Paintball.
What up Jason, this is Damien. I've been playing awhile and came across the UWL last year. I'm in the works of forming a 10 man team and playing a few events this year. We do have a homebase field, which will be I70 Paintball. I'm attempting to have practice come next weekend but weather permitting.
Until I get the team together and see what kind of players I have, a decision hasn't been made yet on the format we will be playing! I'm also looking into the SEPS Woodball, which is held in Louisville,KY. Paintball is all about CASH FLOW, and I'm hoping to build a solid team. Thanks for the info and maybe we'll see you and FTF out there in the woods.
Any way you could send me a better link or pdf on the rules. The website rule book is in a awful format and wont allow me to print it off.
