Only thing that sucks about this is we cant make any exceptions for anyone.
The only excuse is work and that's it. This sort of borderlines between work and something else. Because lemme ask you, are you going to be DJ'ing at 9:30AM?
And Mitchael not having money is a really bad excuse, dude, 45 bucks, I could make 45 bucks begging for change all week.
I really dont want either one of you guys taking this personally, it's just when Sunday rolls around we're all friends at the end of the day but this is something we are going to take a LOT of pride in and anything less than work/death in the family/school is going to inhibit you from being on the A squad/final roster, or whatever we decide to do with it. This is a TEAM. Again, I dont know either one of your situations 100% so I dont want you think I am talking out of turn, however I feel like I can find a way around most anything that isnt one of the above mentioned legitimate excuses. Everyone needs this team more than the team needs them, everyone is expendable including myself. We have an opportunity to play under one of the greatest team names around here and be coached and trained by an NXL World Champion. Name one place around here you can do that. I'm so hungry to make this happen, that nothing is going to stop me from being there every single Sunday. If I lost my job tomorrow, I would be cutting grass to come play on Sunday.
Tomorrow morning....9AM...shop closes at 9:30, if you dont have paint/water with you, noone is going to open the shop. FIELD PAINT ONLY. There is no reason to bring outside paint.
Bottom line, if people make excuses, don't show up, etc. You will not be told you cant come back, you are always welcome to come out on Sundays and play but I can tell you this. You wont be on the roster and you wont be allowed to participate in drills ran by Sean. You can show up and scrimmage. Our coaches and drills are reserved strictly for people on Team 13.
It seems like we are being really strict and serious on this, but if you really think about it, it's quite simple. ALL we are asking is for people who want to do this, to DO it. To show up on time, be responsible, bring your paint and come play paintball. Seems pretty simple to me.
