Everyone is a stuck up prick up here lol, it was nice to meet down to earth, straight up ballers! You guys are lucky to have a awsome player base / fields you have. The IPL and BCPPL events we play our rec grade paint for tournies is $100 a case, and I think the 3rd event they charged us $80/case for Zap Spank...
Now you've got a solid player base from the lower kootenay region coming down for your tournies. Grandview was the best run tourney we've ever been to, and deff. the funnest... This is all thanks to pretty due to Tim T. and the WA ballers. Just wanted to say thanks from Canada, and we'l cya in April -Hayd
I would not usually respond to a post such as this.....but I think it is important to correct someone who says something that is totally inaccurate. The BCPPL has NEVER sold rec grade paint especially for $100.....we have offered Hellfire,Ultra Evil,Chronic pro, Dynasty (GAP), and Anarchy.......we offer over 12 kinds of paint at each and every event.
The atmosphere at a BCPPL event is far from stuck up! Almost everyone is super nice.....and I have never heard anything but positives for the entire 3 years we have been in operations!
You have never been to a BCPPL event? The BCPPL and IPL are diffrent leagues......
On another note: BC was in the same position as Washington is.....the BCPPL was formed by all of the field owners.....run by a independant (non field owner) person.
Danny if you want some advice, consulting......I can help you if you are trying to start something similar.......I would love to see Washington have a strong series. Just e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org
