The ACTS is the only tournament series that based solely in the central east coast. We only have one paid ref which is the 5-man head ref, Pete. This is so we can give the money that you pay to play right back to you. Those of us that have played this series for a few years have seen the good, the bad, and agree that we want it to get better. In order to do that we all must work as a team to solve problems, make improvements, and develop ideas to improve our series. To do this we have to DO and NOT DO some things. We MUST NOT talk negatively about the series unless you have an idea to fix it. Saying negative things just to say them does not help, and in fact hurts the series. We MUST work together. Though I appreciate all your opinions and ideas I want you to know not all of them will be used. I would like to invite all of you to convey your ideas on this thread. I will respond to, and answer, every question and idea. If you do not want to post it here then you can PM me or ask me to call you and I will. I just that today with PCS and can to a good understanding with them. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing your opinions and ideas.
I've been watching this mostly because I live in the area, know a lot of the players who play or have played the ACTS in the past, and even have played in a few of the same promoter's other events in the past. I was not at the event this time, and I don't know that I'll ever play the series for numerous reasons. I do play for Mr. McCoy, however, and if he needs us to ref for him, we'll do it gladly.
I have a player on my team that played his very first event ever in the CFOA this weekend. Him and 3 friends were planning on playing ACTS opener two weeks ago. NONE of them have any tournament experience at all, and they were told that, based ON THEIR GEAR, and the fact that they "looked too good" they would not be allowed to play beginner. In fact, they were told that if they showed up at the event, they would be bumped to 5 man open and have to play a man down.
I've looked in the rule book for 2008, and I can't seem to find where it states that beginners can't have good markers and equipment. They didn't even have UNIFORMS for God's sake! They just wanted to enjoy a quick tournament with some friends...it was local, close, not too exspensive...now a few of those guys will A) never play one of her events, B) tell as many people as possible not to play the events, and C) have an overall bad feel for how tournaments are supposed to be.
You want to make the series better. Play the damn thing straight. If you don't like someone, you suck it up. Personal feelings don't come into rules and calls. But you certainly can't judge someone by the **** in their gear bags...

I have a hard time believing that the man would come up with a story like this. That was his first impression with this series promoter, so he has no reason to lie to his team mates, or anyone else for that matter. He doesnt have a dishonest bone in his body. With my very limited past impressions on the promoter of this series, and I say very limited because I try to avoid this person at all costs. Anyways I have every reason to believe what the man said. I have no reason to doubt him.

On another note. Yes, our team has attended the referee clinic and we are all certified refs for the PSP and CFOA for the 2008 season. If Mr. McCoy approaches us and asks us to ref the event at his field I have no problem with it.

Well I will say this I know for a fact that this is untrue. Maybe there was a mis-communication or this guy mis-herd something but I have known the owner of the series for a few years now and that is not something that she would do. I say I know for a fact because the ONLY team that was moved involuntaraly was a team that did not even show up. If RGHBSN wants more info on this PM me and i will clarify this situation. I will do my best to ensure everyone gets a fair shake in this series and that if there are mistakes or wrong doings that they are fixed.

esps tourneys is capped at 13bps and also PSP so I dont see the big deal about the change. most people that complain are not great players any how. I was in a big speed ball tourney in 06, and used a tippmann with a gravity hopper and came in 4th out of 15 positions. not how many bps but how good and accurate a player is. so if you want to prove me wrong you can scrimage me and any of my rookie players and uncap your markers we dont count on 50balls in the air to make a kill.

2 of my own rookie teams were upset cause they only had 2 novice teams show up and they moved them DOWN! to the rookie div.

so I think it was a bad communication for someone. cause I have never heard of her not letting someone play that is NOT in the Data base.

Bambee, I understand that Thomas Goodwin is playing with Coastal Breakers this Saturday, April 19th. I warn you, this guy does not pay his way and lies.
