its all about 3 man in iowa nowadays, action jacks will probably get a 5 man tourney thing after they get the xball field done.

Its not that its dead. Just that there is not enough players. Yes there is a bunch of rec players but i dont think there is enough speedball players that want to play 5man that are willing to commit to a team. so far iv seen only about 10 or some around PBN and VP saying they would play, but not enough for their 6 team min. Also if VP or anyfield in the case dont promote their fields or tourneys out of Iowa, then we will never have enough players to show up.

^Diego makes a good point, i just think if Velocity put more money/time into it, it would be a much better feel, insted of saying its just a hobbie. Reball Saturday?

Of course, Team Products Paintball, summer of 05 it was very much alive then. But then TPP closed and with it a great field for tourny players and rec players.

if you go back to the TPP days yes it was, every year they would have the norther lights paintball league running it was a large tournaments broken into divisions, it was a two day tournament similar to nppl, just on a much lower scale, there was money and prizes given out, legend attended them, alot of the 315 kids did if you ask them they always did well as normal in any tournament, and i belive whenever tpp had tournaments, they were all full or nearly full, in my opinion if tpp was still open velocity would have more success, all becuase hey, we did bad at the tpp tourney, lets to enter the velocity one and see if we dont do better at the tpp one, essentially, both fields make roughly the same profit if you see it the way i do. But mostly fields are about popularity and how they're ran, velocity, ran like ****, it just takes alot of time, experience, and alot more effort on velocitys half and a few other things wrapped in there, Velocity has yet to hold a tournament this year, lack of popularity and how the field is ran. Hey, it all takes time and a little more effort if you want the field to flop, okay your not making any profit, if you want it to increase, encourage people to other tournaments in the area and ask them to come back for another great time, team products did that, and Jerry was a awesome guy. i think this is the longest post ive made in over 3 months, go me.

Agreed, honestly Mike and Don could've learned something from Jerry but instead they choose to be dbags and not really give a damn about the player it's pretty sad but it's just the way it is

Velocity is alright, but if ur speedball i would only go to the first weekend of every month(due to thats when airball is up). They are only open twice a month, prices are about the same as everyone else, paint is ok(sucks in cold weather, if u were there on April 1st, u know). A lot of people go on the first weekend, usally. The field could be good, however, they don't try as hard as they can to make it a great field. Its there hobby......i dont know, I like it.

KW has a full air bunker XBALL field open every weekend SAT and SUN. Evil Empire practices in the morning and it's open in the afternoon to play on. And if it's busy we have a smaller 3man airball field we'll set up as well.
