Fair enough.... the fill will be pink and orange. Sorry, the orange shoes will probably not be allowed. There was also a team that had orange jerseys. Those probably won't be allowed either. Please bring back ups on all your clothing.

The only rule I found close to a weather situation was-
15.05 - In the event of an emergency, dangerous weather condition, other “acts of God” that would cause the Tournament to be stopped before the completion of the event, the final results for each division will be taken from last completed round. For example, if the event stops in the middle of the 6th round of the preliminaries, the final scores would be taken from the last completed round (5th round). Should an event end early in the preliminaries due to extreme weather conditions that cannot be waited out, the event will be cancelled and re-scheduled at the discretion of the event promoter. Refunds will not be given for the cancelled event. The team’s paid entry fee and air fee would be carried over and applied to the re-scheduled event.
right now the weather forcast is-
Sat Apr 4-
Sun Apr 5-
Rain / Snow Showers / Wind
Would we still play in rain?
Would we still play in a thunder storm?
Would we still play if theres snow/ice?
Is there a temperature cut off?
It's not a big concern this event for us teams who are within driving distance but for those booking hotels it could be something to keep an eye on.
Dang... sunday looks fun.
if it is a light rain, we'll play in the rain. If it is a heavy rain (isolated storm), we'll wait the storm out if we can.
We will play in the snow and I dont foresee 47 being too cold to play. Event #6 in the 2007 season was colder than that if I remember right and we played and there weren't too many problems. The thing to keep in mind is everyone will be under the same playing conditions so all is fair.

That rule is an old rule and I haven't modified it yet. What we ended up doing on the jerseys is that if it is directly from the paintball manuf. and there are no modifications to the jersey/padding, then it will be allowed.
