is it worth it?

So I really want to go to the Denver Tourny right? Well one problem, my parents have no money due to paying hospital bills for me recently having cancer. I have not been anywhere but my house and the hospital for a whole year, so I really want to go some where. I was going to go to the beach with my friend but for some reason the trip was cancelled. I really love paintball and want to go watch this tourny (my first)so badly. I applied for the Make-a-Wish Foundation but they have not contacted me yet.(I guess there are a lot of people on the list before me) So I am left with my last option. I looked in my bank account and I have just enough to go to Denver. That will be my gas money, insurance, and anything else I want to do in the near future until I am capible of getting a job.

I think it would be worth it but do you?

Just wait till world cup its in Olrando and will be more fun. sucks about having cancer though, im pretty sure Make A Wish only works for kids who are terminal so you really dont want them helping you.

This is the only one I will be able to attend. I cant go to the other because of school. The MAWF is for anyone with a potentially terminal illness. I had one but survived it . Unfortunately I can't say the same for some other kids I met in the hospital . Even if you had it as a young child you can make a wish before you turn 18. So I am a lucky mofo, I survived and now want to have fun.

I don't think anyone can tell you if it's worth it to make the trip but you. We're expected to have the temperature somewhere in the 90s all weekend, with a possibility for showers. Last year it was hot and miserable and I don't expect this year to be any different.

BTW... Congrats on beating the cancer, my company sponsors 14 Make-A-Wish families every year, it's a cool program and I've gotten to host 2 families in the last 2 years.

How are the fields/stands set up at Invesco field? Just like open to the elements bring a hat and wear sunscreen, or is there any kind of roof on the stadium or anything to provide shade?

Edit: Or, is it even in the stadium at all? Is it in like the parking lot or something?

Beg your parents to let you go to World Cup. It'll be better than Denver. School isn't more important than paintball anyway. Plus Alabama is closer to Orlando than Denver. If all else fails you can watch the webcams offered by the Nation. http://www.pbnation.com/store.php?#megacams
7 bucks is cheaper than a plane ticket and everything else you'd have to pay for.

I think you'll enjoy whatever you go to. You should bring extra cash for some soveniers, maybe try to get some signatures from infamous/xsv/dynasty/oakland WHOEVER
