Startin a tournament? (Northeast Nebraska area)

First off, if this is the wrong thread please tell me.

I live in Northeast Nebraska and our population is very small. My town boasts a woppin 300 people...total. With that said the numbers to go paintballing are kinda slim, but we do still manage to go. We just set up a field made of haybails this week and played on it today. It wasn't too bad. But anyway, to get to my question, what does it take to put on a tournament? I don't mean a super duper spectacular sponsors all over tounament. I mean like put some fliers in surrounding towns (of about the same population) and just say we are having a 3-man or 5-man tourney. What kind of stuff would we need? Any help would be awesome!

Thanks.

underachievers knows it


you would need a compressor to keep you bottles full, not just a scuba

idk how to get insurance

netting costs alot of money

refs would be easy to find

paint would be easy to order and sell for more






you would loose money unless u had alot of tourneys

don't bring your ref's from columbus...or atleast say that they are not the same refs that were at this summer TJ event...im not gonna lie, those were probably the worst refs i've seen...ever...

You guys have to realize, and maybe I didnt say this clear enough...I am in the middle of nowhere. People that would come to these tourney's would probly all be using CO2. Everyone would most likely just throw some teams together with their friends and go. The ref help would be awesome though, no fields around here to borrow refs from.

hey

hey if you need help/adivce with anything let me know. I could talk to some guys and see about getting you bunkers, netting, air, etc. if you need it. but you would have to talk to the owners of such things. as for reffing, you could maybe work something out with me and my guys but we'd have to discuss that...but like said before, I wouldnt plan on making a ton/hardly any money off hosting 1 event with just local occasional rec players. but good luck and let me know if you have any questions. (I might even know you, this is Carter from Explicit)

It awesome all the help you guys are willing to offer, this is a long ways from getting off the ground, but it is something I'd love to do. Im gunna try to keep working on it. Can you legally host a tourney without insurance? This would just be out in a homemade field with haybail bunkers. No netting either.

i believe it is...but it's not smart...really someone could just get shot and you'd end up being sued...so instead you should just avoid the trouble...

Have everyone sign a waiver stating that paintball is a dangerous sport and the player plays at his/her own risk and that you are not liable.

That wont cut it in court! If you do not have insurance for paintball you are risking everything you own if anyone were to get hurt.

I told every team at that tourney that the refs I had backed out on me the last moment. and that it was a newbee tourney. The prizes were picked from the number of teams I had entered and the air fee came from All Paint from grand island. TJ Paintball supply did not see any of that money.

what town do you live in? I live in valentine NE and my friend is selling his airball field with netting. we use to play alot but people backed out from playing or moved on to other things. which sucks because I haven't played paintball in almost a year. i will be up for playing in this tourney, i can bring a few guys down.

I am in the Northeast corner, but it isn't looking like this is going to happen. I am busy with school and don't have the time or resources. Me and my classmates are wanting to go down to the big Oklahoma D-day this June though, that is my only big plan in the works anymore. Sorry guys. I would be up for coming to any tourney that was cheap in the area though.
