OPEN TRYOUTS for New 2009 Arsenal Team

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

Two pro teams under one franchise? Is this legal? Just wondering.

Oh and good luck with the try outs for D2, if I weren't moving, I would've gladly tried out for the team

Perfectly Legal

As long as they do not share the same players / city name / team name it is legal to have all 18 pro teams from the smae organization which is where we will be in 18 years at the pace we are going at lol a new pro team every year.

Smile Name Green

My name will be green next year, after this last event. Taken 3 teams pro now so I guess its time to stay on one hopefully Tom doesn't cut me, otherwise I will have to hire out my services toa team that wants to get there. Got a pretty good resume as well

Took Hurricanes pro when the league locked spots
Got Jersey Authority their pro spot 2 years ago as the A Team
This Year getting Evolution their pro spot

Its nice to earn the spots though and not have to buy one like other teams have, plus I made some good money placing 5 times on the podium in the semi pros.

Do you have to live in the northeast? I was wondering because I live in Florida and I am interested in the tryouts.
