I made a few calls and sent a few emails last night. If the MWB's know of 4 teams already I have 4 more. These 4 have never played UWL before. That is 8 teams of the 8 teams I think only MWB have played a UWL before. That would be 7 new teams to the UWL. I am going to make some phone calls today. I think a 12 to 16 team event here in Nebraska could happen. That would be really cool to get a big turn out to the first one in our state. Now we just have to find a way to make it happen.

Thanks for all the info it helps A LOT!

Really looking forward to Vicious gaining interest! Who knows if the Nebraska event goes down Chicago Underground might have to make the 8 hour drive .
Yeah I feel you on the paint thing. We would just ship a skid to what ever city. It is like 100% way better than trying to drive it ect.

Its cool the UWL lets teams shoot pink. We have been working on a new ball for 2011 with Empire. It is a Ultra Evil Purple shell with a nice non-staining pink fill. I am excited to get a sample of it soon.

Shipping paint is a great idea, unfortunately a lot of the team in the UWL operate on a shoestring budget. I imagine over the next few years the industry backing will go through the roof and we will have the option to buy paint from vendors at the events.

Well and as the boys have already stated, teams like Desert Edge, Underground, Heretics, Blacklight Company all live relatively close (for traveling teams). It's 6 hours closer for our midwest teams from the north than DDay. It is potentially a good central hub. One of the big perks with CJ's is a close airport, plenty of hotels, etc. for teams flying or driving in.

Plus you get to come to Big Red country, the home of Vicious and MWB. What more could you want? lol

I will post up details from the conversation with Tom on Friday. If I get some time, I will swing out to the shop.

Southwest flys into Omaha. Free bags both can be up to 50 pounds. The Omaha airport is right at 90 mins form CJ's field.

One of the other nice things about CJ's field is they will bust butt to make it the best it can be. They work very hard to make it a safe and fun field. They also make some great BBQ

14 hour drive is doable for us. Thats about as far as we would drive though.

Have to look in to flight costs also.

You guys are going to make me tell Jacko to have ETV come out and film this if we can make it happen.

We would love that. The woods teams dont get to see the ETV guys a lot. Last we did was ION in 2008.

Can you guys get a good # of open and Tactical teams? Just so they all are not one or the other.

I'm guessing if the Joes enter they will be Tactical. MBP might go Open.

Vicious will obviously be Open. I assume the other teams you are speaking of Pauly would be the DSS squads and your sponsored teams? Would you have them roll Tactical or Open?

Waiting for his call back as we speak.

I would guess most of the teams I talked to last night would be open. But I am still unsure of all the divisions that the UWL offers. My bad I am still trying to learn. There is just so much to learn lol. The UWL has tons of rules ect. It will take me a few nights of reading to get up to speed.

If I let one team use some of my Autocockers they might play skills. Other than that Tactical and maybe Open.

It sure would be nice to have DE come out and sling some paint in this neck of the woods, we always look forward to playing with/against you!

GP, there was a Captains meeting in Cali at nationals and it was decided that right now Skills isn't plausible for the league to continue to offer, it may comeback later, but as of the 2011 season, there will be no skills team. To help you a small amount with understanding the division between Tactical and Open: Open is for Teams who have players who are rated at a PRO level. Tactical cannot have any professional players. There is also talk in the Tactical division of having a paint limit imposed, but this is not yet decided. Hope that helps some.

Man do i hope we can get CJ's as a host feild. I went up there for the first time for customer appreciation day and enjoyed myself thourgoughly. Can't wait to get back out there on the 7th for the big game. Great field layout, density of cover and bunkers, and variety of play. Greg, you hit it right on the head about Chuck too. Excellent guy working FOR the players.

Now all the kids will have to learn how to play in the woods haha. One of the biggest reasons we are excited as it seems like a laid back fun league.

Let the glorious might of Husker Power expands its presence in the league. Glad to have Vicious in the UWL!!! Your sportsmanship, elite level competition, and fun loving attitudes will be a great addition to the Ultimate Woodsball League.

There are a good number of rules but they are all pretty simple. The Hopper restrictions is probably the biggest one, but its a good rule to keep this a woodsball game as opposed to speed in the woods. As Alpha said, it looks like Skills Division will be gone for 2011. We had some high quality teams in there, but not enough squads anymore want to play primarily mech. So all indications are that Skills will be gone. That leaves two divisions: Open and Tactical. I'm sure Tom filled you in on most of this over the phone. Skills and Open were the two divisions that allowed Pros, but now Open is the only division for them.

This doesn't mean that Open is ONLY Pros, since speedball is the only recognized way to gain "Pro" status. In Open you will find your upper level woodsball teams AND Pros from the speedball fields. Tactical is designed for those who are just getting into competition pball. It provides them with a more level playing field. And as stated above, there are discussions of making Tactical be a limited paint division in 2011.

The positions in the UWL are easy and they add an interesting dynamic to play. 30 minute games. Two respawns at 10 minutes each. 4 flags on the field. Any questions, feel free to ask up. Myself or anyone else on these boards would be happy to fill you on the details.

Sweet glad to hear it!!! Looks like Underground might have to make the drive. I wouldn't be surprised if Aggressive didn't make that drive either.

It has aleady been stated but the rules look more complicated than they really are..

The big ones are:
Hopper restrictions - This helps keep all guns capped at 15bps its the easiest and quickest way to cap the guns.
The Positions - Captain (uses the reinserts if the team has them and coin toss) Heavy Gunner (Can run any hopper and any mode so a rotor and uncapped full auto is fine for the Heavy), Scout (He gets a 10 second Head start) and Sniper (Pump, pistol or any gun shooting semi with a 20 ball hopper/mag limit)
Flag Stations - 4 flags, a home flag for each team and 2 neutral flags.
Center Prop - contains a 2 man respawn

After all that its just paintball and some of the most fun at that. Really happy to have you guys on board and it already looks like its going to be a great 2011 season!

If we are able to do an event here in Nebraska we will make sure we put as much time into the set up as we do our Vicious Series Events. I think we would have enough Eclipse tents to cover 16 mayeb 18 teams. I will be getting back on the phone tonight to talk to teams in our 4 or 5 state area about playing. I think it would be amazing if we had 16 to 20 teams come out and play. That would be a huge launch for the UWL in our area of the counrty.

Thanks again for all the help, It makes it easy to get excited when all the teams and players are this helpful.
