Just pretend you are going to the Chargers store or the swapmeet = FREE PARKING!
Here's my quick review:
I couldn't get down there til Sunday. I walk in with my boy Dirty and this lady and this PYT come over to us and ask if we have our wristbands. We say no and they just give us two passes to the grandstands! Turns out that the hot-girl was Jason Bornstein's gf. She was cool as hell and get's mad props for hookin us up!
The layout of vendors/fields/ect was weird to say the least. It took forever to find out how to get to the grand stands, after taking forever to find the main NPPL field.
There were plenty of deals to be had like JT selling "PRO Pants" for $40 and shirts for $5??? Is someone getting out of paintball??? But other than the Rotor... nothing JUMPED out at me.
I hate going to an event and not playing but it's the last event of the year... you gotta see those faces that you probably won't see til 09! In the short time I was there, I was able to say what's up to many of my PB Hommies: Kat Thompson (I <3 Katspix), Kyle Johnson (what beer??), Mike Breto (Raza Fo Life), Ken Tsuda, my boys from Vegas Effect (way to represent!), Mike Mesa, Don Don, the Gangstar Guy (new hommie)! Oh, and can't forget my GIN Kimo and his
I owe you ****er! lol.
Other than the friends and free wristband... this event had an erie feel. There were less vendors. The vendors all said that sales were SLOW! The grandstands were smaller, there was little to no-outside participation... it seemed like an XPSL event. The economy is hurting paintball.
Either way, congrats to all the NPPL teams this year and hope to see you all out there in 09!
