James is right, I haven't played in quite some time and never in a highly competitive event like a tourney. It's good to see the enthusiasm though. What we really need is a reorganization of our club before we try and get too serious, because leadership is lacking. At the next meeting, which is after the event, we need a big turnout and we need to have appointed or elected officers, because when it comes right down to it, Lucas lacks the capacity and ability to do it by himself.

In regards to who would be paying, it'd probably be split. Either we have a meeting with the AS to try and get funding, or we pay ourselves to establish ourselves then ask for money. The second option would probably be the best, although not all of us (myself included) may not be able to afford it.

The way I see it, WWU will be sitting this one out, so that we can have the time to figure our stuff out.

I was just thinking, if I read right, there has to be the 4 schools that will play in order to hold the tourny in the first place. If we back out that would only make 3 schools, causing it to not go through and then put everyone right back to square one trying to get another tournament back up here some other time instead of just establishing that it can happen. (Now I could be wrong there and maybe I read everything wrong.) In any case, I say yes, we go, we possibly get our butts kicked, or if the players up here are as solid as I've heard then we do somewhat decent because even with awesome players if you don't have practice you aren't going to win. But from the sounds of it half these guys sound like they already play regularly together if not practice on the same team together. Regardless of what happens, WWU makes a showing and we establish ourselves as a school that does indeed have a paintball team and start the process into the loop, thus we aren't disregarded or forgotten when the next event comes up. I say get 5 or 6 guys, if you want have them all know each other, I'll back out if we want to only send guys who already play together, send them down there, compete for a day. And then its over, 1 day, less than 100 bucks each, to play in a tourny if not to represent the school to just play in a tourny and have some fun. Then we have our meeting after the tourny that k.rollin is talking about and start pulling are act together and get a solid roster and team and practice and all that set up so that the next tournament, not only will we go in being known as a school who DOES indeed have a team, but we will leave as a school with a solid team that plays some serious ball.

Well right now, I think UW is the only school that has even registered for the college tourney. Don't get me wrong, I'd like to see this happen, but that game is in two weeks, and we have yet to find five guys who can play in it, not to mention that time is limited for practice, seeing as how next week is finals, then its spring break. Also, I don't see myself getting out of the scenario help I signed up for back home, so I'm out for this one.

well, i don't have a lot of money in the first place, so dropping 100$ on a tourny to get our ***** kicked isn't something i'm all about doing.

Not only that but in reality I bet we would all spend that much just on paint

you guys should really try to do this tourney. its more about getting the NW NCPA conference off the ground than anything else. jtb1689 has the right idea.


WSU is in the exact same situation you guys are, and they're coming all the way from Pullman. I believe only a few of them have played together before, and they've never played a tourney together.

UI is new as well. They've played together a bit, and have only played one 3-man beginner tourney.

NCONTROL is even trying to throw a team together from Evergreen State College.

UW has been playing together for a while, but the last tourney we played was last summer. We only play about every other week, and its a different group of guys every time. We're gonna try and field 2 teams, and half of our guys haven't even played a tourney before, or are new to the club.


In reality, we're all on a relatively level playing field.

maybe we can get a meeting with the as to ask for a few hundred bucks to pay for paint, air, transport and entry fee for the event. then all we have to do is put together a team and not worry about money (aside from APPA registration, if you aren't already signed up with them). of course, Lucas is the one who knows how to pull that stuff, and so I don't know how that'll go down since he seems kind of busy.

Thomas forwarded me and anyone else who went to last week's meeting this email from Comcast. Basically, we do a little work for them, they give us money ($1000 to be exact). Here's the details:

Hi Paintball Club ,
ClubFunding has been providing student organizations with great fundraising opportunities for the last 5 years. We have a fundraising opportunity for Paintball Club coming up a Western Washington University. This fundraiser is for Comcast Cable.
Your responsibilities would include passing out flyers, posters, and door hangers around campus and around your members class schedules. Then your organization will need to provide at least 5 members at all times to help pass out free moving boxes to fellow students around campus for 2 days and off campus for two days from 9am – 4pm. The same students do not need to work all day, but we would appreciate as little turn over as possible. We will pay your organization $1000 plus bonus possibilities for participating in this fundraiser.
If Paintball Club is interested in participating please respond ASAP. I have offered this opportunity to several organizations on campus and I will be selecting an organization to work with on a first come first serve basis. Please also send a contact phone number for quick contact.
Cheers,
Myles

I'm in to do this, but it's going to take more people in order to make it work.
