Chuck Hendsch's Official Response to USPL Prize Modification

Official Response from Chuck Hendsch:
Hi,

As stated on the website under the prize section the prizes will be reduced 30% as we have under 75 teams.
We are still giving away over 30,000 to the D1, D2 and D3. Pros do not receive prize money.

I hope you understand as the cost of putting on events is very costly even when we use traditional paintball parks instead of stadiums.

Hope to see you out there.

Best Regards,

Chuck Hendsch
Commissioner
US Paintball League

Once agian, I understand the prizes need to be reduced, but i dont understanbd how they get reduced the same if we are short 5 teams or 20 teams. This really should just be done proportionally.

This is what happens when you run back to back Cali events. You get little to no support from the east coast.

im guessing pro teams wont count since there is no prize package for them, nor is there an entry fee.

but there are 54 paid teams, including pump and 5man.

That would be very cool, I'm hoping some teams do the last minute thing.

I remember watching HB and some throw together D3 and D2 teams did really well.
