The MSXL is leaning towards reducing the number of Race to 4 events to 4. My thoughts are that if we start in March at CHF and host events May, July and Sept. we would have a month off between events to regroup save money and practice for the next event.

On the off months I am interested in promoting the Race to 2 formats if I can garner enough interest.

Let's hear your thoughts.

I personally sort of like this idea. The only reason I say sort of is because, from my understanding, the MiLP is starting up next season and it looks like they will attract most of the D3/4 race to-2 teams. But maybe you'll have more D2 teams since some of the D3 teams had a good season under their belts, and will want to try D2 next year, which will grow to an open division.

Just my .02

I think they are staying in Chattanooga. We will cover a large region and hopefully draw from a large enough base to make it work.

Yeah I wasn't sure on that. I'm trying to get a MSXL team for next year, probably race to 4. I've heard nothing but great things about this league, so I'm looking to get a team for it.

CHF, Louisville, I've heard Birmingham is in the works? and then finish it off in Owensboro. That sounds perfect. I like the 4 events and the spacing in between. Would SEPS take on the 5-man portion of your idea?

I've offered to help SEPS the past two years convert to Race to 2. I would love to have them on board. It's up to SEPS.

Advantage Paintball (the old N2 Paintball) has two 2010 Race fields, right off of I-65 and has hotels on the same exit. It is about 45 minutes north of Birmingham.

I don't see why not. I always thought MSXL and SEPS were affiliated anyway.

If you guys can convince KP and Brent I will do my part to try and get us entries to Cup as a series prize for the Race to 2 formats. Got over 200 teams signed up for Cup looks like PB is still Alive!!!

Tapper what are your thoughts as to where to hold the other three race to 4 events besides chf at this point? i know some people thought the plex stretched the mid-south part of the league, but the facility was also pretty decent. just trying to pick your brain, thanks

Personally, I would prefer to not have to make the trek again. It really should stay Mid-South. Again, just personally, I would think Asylum, PG, CHF/N2 or whatever it is, and the championship at AXPS would work for most people. That really does keep it Mid-South like it was originally intended.

Yea Spreading out the events I like. There wasn't very much time in between St. Louis and AXPS. I'd say just stick to the race to 4 there isn't a lot of local Xball leagues that do that if any I know of.
