Thanks to all of the teams that came out for the practice. What a great day of paintball. You couldn't ask for better weather. The schedule was intense and there wasn't much time between games to get ready for the next one. I think we got in 11 or 12 rounds before teams started running out of paint and dropping out. We were able to keep the schedule running for a couple more rounds until we just went open play.

All in all everything went smooth and the competitive attitudes ran high. Unfortunately that sometimes leads to volatility when a player is perceived to have cheated. We would all love to have everything melo and laid back but as with all sports they have their not so shiny moments. Fortunately we can work through those and move on. Besides, I need something now and again to get me off of my chair.

Almost all of the top 7 man teams in the NW were at this practice. If you missed out please come to the next one. These practices are intense and designed to help our NW teams prep for the world class events. We will be scheduling a Big Practice the weekend before every NPPL event. Now that we have the new XBall field we will schedule a Big Practice the weekend before every PSP event as well. BGP will always be working toward raising the bar for NW paintball.

Thanks again, everyone. You are who makes BGP what it is.

Players cheating? Hasn't that become a part of the game? Hasn't it become either you call yourself out, play on or wipe, and if you chose one of the last two then either you do it right and get away with it or you botch it and get a penalty?
