Austin Massacre Recruiting - 2011

Austin Massacre is looking for 1 or 2 *very* solid individuals and players to add to our roster for the 2011 season. Playing preference doesn't matter - we're looking for front, mid, and back. Ideally the individual would be able to play all, as this is the nature of PSP at the moment. Gone is the day when you can just camp in back or only be a snake player. Versatility is a key.

Our intent is to play local tournaments, PSP regional feeders, and some of the national PSP events.

We are looking first and foremost for dedicated high quality individuals that play with integrity and conduct themselves on and off the field in the same manner. We won't compromise on this aspect regardless of how skilled someone might be. Regarding playing skills, we are looking for folks that are fundamentally sound, with tournament playing experience - local, regional, or national. Ideally, you would be ranked or can play at the D3 level. Our tournament strategy is simple - win where we're at (divisional level) and move up. We would love to move up a division per year, but only if possible and in the best interest of the team.

Thanks to the great fields, Webers and Maximum, who actually understand paintball and make it affordable to practice. This is where we will normally be practicing, periodically for 2010, and regularly beginning 2011. As we did most of 2010, we will practice at least once a weekend if not twice. We understand not everyone can play every weekend due to vacations, time with family, etc., and we want you to take those times and enjoy your family and friends. These times are fleeting so enjoy them while you can. Beyond an excuse of this nature, we would expect you at most every practice.

Ideally, you would have your own higher end equipment, meaning higher end markers (Planet Eclipse, Dye, etc.) as both your primary and secondary marker, and a duplicity of critical equipment - tanks, hoppers, etc. Games are won and lost because of inferior equipment.

We should have the same sponsors in place for 2010 including KEE (Empire, RPS, Contact, Liquid, E-Vents, Evil, etc.), Intensity Sports, and ANSgear. We are also in talks over a gun deal, but we don't have a definitive agreement at this point. Intensity Sports in particular has been an incredible asset to us, and facilitated our deal with KEE as well as made it much more affordable for us to play and practice on a daily basis. Additionally, through our sponsorship with KEE / RPS, we get paint at national tournaments at a significant discount. We shoot only RPS, and Evil in particular.

Also, we are looking for players at least 17 and older - college age would be better. Only on an exceptional basis would we consider anyone younger.

We weren't able to play as often as we would have liked this year due to finances. Part of our cost of playing tournaments in 2011 will be offset due to a new sponsor so hopefully it will be more affordable.

If you have interest, please PM me your qualifications and equipment setup as well as a link to your APPA profile if you have one. Don't post your qualifications in this thread as they won't be responded to. Please send information about your age, equipment, and ability to play, both locally as well as regionally and nationally. I will respond to every PM I get.

Good luck to all in 2011. There are some great teams here in Texas and they all deserve to do well. Best of wishes to all my friends at Texxas Made, X-Factor, X-Factor-II, Dallas Detox, and Drunken Monkeys. These guys are the glue that hold Texas paintball together.

Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Beginning 2011, we will most likely be practicing or playing every Sunday, and Saturday on occasion. We'll be at Max or Webers, and will post in our team thread as to where we'll be. We look forward to seeing you.

Here's our 2010 sponsors:



Everyone of these guys have been and continue to be phenomenal. We could not practice or play as often as we do if it weren't for them. Please support them any way you can. They'll be back for 2011.

Bumping this up. I've been very encouraged by the responses so far. Just need a couple more to check out.

Thanks.

P.S. If you know of anyone who might be a fit and refer them and they make the team, we'll give you a $100 referral bonus.

Looks like we'll be down at Max on the 17th checking a couple of guys. If you're the type player identified in the first post, just PM me and we can coordinate a time to check you out. As mentioned, we're looking to add 1 or 2 solid players and should have the same sponsors as last year (KEE, Intensity, and ANSgear) along with a couple of other key manufacturers. Working on a gun deal as well.
