The following is merely the opinion of one player and does not reflect the views of Hole In The Wall Paintball, its owner, sponsored teams, or staff.


Or instead of players being greedy they can just play just for the fun of it!

The tournaments at HITW are mostly the small local variety. Sure it is nice to have a good prize package, but not every field in Michigan can be like TCP and sponsor a NPPL team. Not every field in Michigan can have totally awesome prize package that draws in the big names in the state.

In my honest opinion to minute paintball becomes all about the prizes is the minute you should get out.

dude shut up. its not about prizes and making money. its about a return on an investment. if i pay to play a tourny it would be cool if maybe i can at least get the money i put in back out if i'm talented enough to win. paintball is WAY to expensive of a sport to begrudge a person at least that. you don't want people to worry about prizes? fine, as soon as paint costs $10 a case come back and talk to me.... in the mean time... STFU...

Yeah we were out a few weeks ago. We talked to ya for a minute, you didnt look like you were in the mood to "chit-chat" so we let you guys get some practice. We would love to be able to keep a team together long enough to do some actual practice but as it is I think we have 3 "full time" guys and another that playes when he can. So yeah thats the story. Next time I see ya Ill re-introduce myself.

I did not need to come off quite so harsh with my last post. If I offended anyone I apologize.

Most of the events at HITW are the small local variety. Sure it would be nice to have some of the bigger names in the state attend HITW events. I also realize that there are better tournament events in the state with cash prizes and/or larger gear prize packages. Like I said not every field can sponsor a NPPL or PSP team. Also not every field can have cash pay outs or large prize packages. Some fields have a larger following than others.

I understand it is nice to win a some sort of prize, especially if you are good enough to get first. The way a few people have posted about prizes it made them sound like they were expecting a prize just for showing up. I agree with rocker2 that if a player or team is skilled and talented enough to place well in a tournament they should get a return on their investment.

In this day and age it almost seems like the prize is the only thing players compete for. Now if players and teams played just to compete they might play better without the feeling the pressure of having to get first. Also if they don't make it into the finals round by a few points they might feel better about how they did if they played just to compete.

As far as the prize package goes I do know that Glen got a prize package deal through JT. I know he had it for the last tournament at HITW. I do not know how many events the prize package deal is good for. The last event the prize package was 3 sets of JT goggles, four cases of paint, and a banner.

I am usually game for chatting after practice or sometimes before if there is time. During practice not so much, I try to stay focused on the task at hand. By all means re-introduce yourself. I know that there are a lot of players looking for teams, branch out a bit and let it be known and I am sure you will be able to fill your roster. G/L.

wow man im all for playing for the fun of it but that post just kicked glen in the balls if anybody shows it will be a merical if any one even showed

josh paintball is not an investment its a sport (well kinda) just like any other non pro sport its played for fun not a paycheck but ill hummer you for a minute

hole in the wall 3man 45 for entry a team 40 a case for cheap paint 125 in total thats 41.66 per player now average teams that show is less than 5 multiply that by 5 and you get 625 for a total for the day how much do you think is profit on that? ruffly 400 now take out the case of paint per reff that usually is the payment for reffing now your down to 250 or so tell me how to divide that to 3 spots and still make it worth hosting

ALL IN ALL YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR LOW ENTERY FEE NO CASH PRIZE JUST THAT SIMPLE
