Like I said, it's more of a Newbie Tourny. Rookie implies it's still your 1st year of tournies. Well some rookies fall into this classification and some don't. And becuase everyone knows Stinger will pull you if you have to much experience, these people trying to 'sneak in' just want to know if they'll get pulled or not. Pretty simple, it just takes asking the question, which is what these forums are for, communicaiton for the paintballa types. Besides, not everyone can be a pro like us sneakyweasel
Here's a good guide to go buy if you're still asking yourself if you qualify for this tourny. If you can't answer the following question, sign up, otherwise you're too experienced:
"How are tournies run or what are they like? I wonder how I'd do."
If you can't answer the above call 2 of your mates up (that answered the same way...) and sign up!
