WTF??? Gravity fed hoppers only!!!

So my local field has adopted a new rule that, for rec play, they only allow gravity fed hoppers on their fields! WTF????? Guess I just wasted $800 on my Mini and ups then.

Yeah, after tank, Vlocity hopper, board upgrade, bolt upgrade, spring kit, etc.

After reading up a bit it looks as if though the rule is only for walk on rec players. We always go with a group of 15+ so we are considered a "private group.

umm, why is that grounds for lol status?
But man, that sucks. I hope my field doesnt do that! That would totally suck. But i think they're doing that so new players dont get discouraged when they get thier faces mowed with a 20bps rope lol. But seriouslly, i think they're doing it so theyll have more business, but i think the regualrs are going to totally hate the new rule. I know i would

Does that mean you are forced to use a "shake n bake" hopper, or are non-force-feed but agitating loaders okay? I would refuse to play at a field that made me use a shake n bake hopper - they're not even fast enough to feed my pump gun.
