Posting this so all you North East ballers can be prepared. The Arsenal Organization will have open tryouts for a new D2 NPPL 7 man team for 2009. This will be an earn your way into the organization team by showing the commitment to be part of a team and the commitment to win. This team will not be a FREE ride to tell you up front but there will be sponsorship to be discussed at a later date. You must put in your time and show your commitment to the organization in order to earn the ride. Here is a little recent history of the organization, 2007 the A-Team wins the semi pro series title to earn their way back into the pros as the previous spot was sold by another owner. Sister team Evolution finishes the season ranked 4th after playing 3 events. Our Arsenal Kidz team finishes 2007 strong winning the final 2 NPPL events. 2008 year so far, Pro Team DC Arsenal ranked 9th overall, semi pro team Arsenal Evolution ranked 1st in semi pro with 2 event wins this year so far (moving to the pros next year), our D1 team Arsenal Kids ranked 4th with 1 event win, and our D2 team Arsenal Predators ranked 5th with 2 3rd finishes. In our last event the Organization had all 4 teams playing on Sunday, then 3 team all playing in the finals in 3 different divisions. No other Organization has ever accomplished that, and then we had 2 teams win the event in Buffalo. Recent Facefull article states that if you want to play pro paintball see Tom Fore and the Arsenal Organization due to multiple teams and the way they perform. Our tentative teams for next year are this
