Refs are everything, no body likes to get cheated on. In the past 20yrs I have played in some real cheat fests, and I can lay a 2" diameter turd to prove it. At any captain's meeting you will never hear "excessive wiping will not be tolerated" and "everyone will know you cheated-don't do it". There is no guess work to reffing, just have to have the Men to do it. Frankly guys I'm not doing this to get rich, if you are a jerk go play at someone elses field- better yet get out of the game.
Here is what I propose for this year.
Major Event Previews
Will offer Major Event Previews [to mimic PSP & NPPL] a few weeks before the actual Event. I think 5 player X Ball and NPPL. Maybe sneak 7 NPPL in later? The posts and pms say BYOP [My reference Carry On Paint], so be it. I will offer pre-order paint at $43 & $55 [Allstar]. I think we can do ok charging $150 for 5 player, $210/7. Store Bought trophies... I have to pay for the new comp. so i need $10 for air.
We will limit participation- to keep teams playing.
Played on Sundays
1. March 25 5 player NPPL per Hunt. Beach [Weather permitting- indoors might be place to play on this day?]
2. April 15 5 play PSP per Mid Atlantic
3. May 6 NPPL per Tampa
4. June 10 5 player PSP per Chicago
5. July 22 5 player PSP per TBA
6. Oct 14 5 Player PSP per Cup
Carry on Paint Tourneys
I invision and hope Carry on Paint Tourneys to be fun competitions with a little dynamic tention mixed in, plus give young guys a chance to rub shoulders with the experienced good role models.
We are bringing back the Chocolate Cream Pies, ladies and gents do whatever.
Costs: $60- 3 player, $100- 5 player: $10 air. I will offer pre-order paint at $43 & $55 [Allstar].

Well looks like John got his X ball field today. Everything looks cool got all his stuff. The mini cylinders come in boxes labled pillar/can so I hope they are the right thing because 12 cans would kinda suck.
Age limit is 10.
Depending on the individual- Event Previews might not be the best place to start young players. The best place to start might be open play with the staff playing as added mentors to your guidance.
Since I got old and fat I really appreciate cooler weather. Polar Ice and the rubber field are the trick.
Called Sup'Air as soon as field was inventoryed because of the [can] discrepancy between what was on their site and what was delivered.
They told me that the Official field was reconfigured and they were absolutely sure it is right because we got the very first '07 field shipped this year. With this storm we are cutting our vacation off- be back Sat. I will inflate the bunkers then and confirm.
Field sure fills up a Basement doesn't it matrix.
With play on fields as soon as snow melts. God- thanks for global warming.
