I want to take a few min to thank everyone that participated in the GPL Event over the weekend. We were very fortanate to have the weather hold up. Sunday morning was a little wet, but luckly it stop right around first games and ended up to be a beautiful day.
I want to thank the 90 + referres we had between the two days. Eric Holland, Jesters, Nvs, Misfits, Infamy, Cold Fusion, Dirty Jersey, Naughty Leprechans, Outlaw and many others (if I forgot you, I apologize) - you guys did a great Job. Keep up the great work. To those that have commented on the reffering, we appreciate the numerous comments on how much better the reffering is this event by the many emails I have recieved and those few that have commented on the poor reffing, please contact me so that we can make it better for you. It is not an easy job and the entire Refferee staff has MY TOTAL APPRECIATION AND MY UTMOST RESPECT.
Thank you Del Hobbies for suppling a great facility to make this event happen and for setting up the fields and layout.
Also, Erika, Kathy, Angie, Michael, Mike, Jessie (air girl), Steve (VIP guy) and Brian - you guys do not
get the credit that is deserved. Everyone always thanks the refferee staff, Tom and Dan and even myself - I can't do it without you guys either. Kathy and Erika - as you two know - I would be lost this entire year without you two. You guys are my life savers and Angie, thank you for your help too.
To the players, I want to say thank you for coming out and making the GPL the Largest Paintball Series in the Northeast. Even though quite a bit of teams decided not
to participate due to the rainy weather Sunday morning, still 116
teams did indeed participate over the entire weekend. Congrats to all of you.
I would like to remind the players of a few things. We are ALWAYS looking for event feedback. Good Bad or indiffer. We like to hear it. That is why we have the questionaire on the website. Please go to QUESTIONAIRE HERE
so that we can get your feedback. You dont need to enter in a valid name or email address. We just want to hear what you have to say. If you have any questions ask them, if you put a valid email address, Brian will be more than happy to respond back to your questions as many of you who have done it already have noticed. Please submit suggestions so that we can offer what is best for you the players.
If you have field suggestions, as I have posted in a previous post, please email BRIAN
. We can then foward it to the Field Designers. If you have drawn up layout examples, send them too.
We are looking forward to yet a bigger and better Event #5 - October 7 & 8. Remember the deadline to sign up is Oct 4th.
The GPL Series would not be where it is at today if it wasnt for the combination of both the players and the staff and we look forward to seeing you at the next event!
