goin to respectfully disagree here, CRU hasnt been around long enough (with all due respect) to get props for running smooth events on a seasonal basis. on top of that all the events I have witnessed at CRU have been managed by TCP, either Rick or LT. sorry to say I have to give credit were credit is due. I have little doubt they can and will run smooth and fair events, but imho it has yet to happen.

GL in the opening season USPA, I wish all the best for you guys.

I'm going to have to respectfully state that you have yet to witness an event put on by CRU so it's hard to form an opinion. I've enjoyed the last couple seasons working with Rick from TC and he does a great job, but you personally have only attended those events.
While I will say I hope to learn and get better with each event, I've heard no complaints from the players that have competed at events at CRU.

I hope to have CRU judged by what is seen and experienced by the players, not just have players form opinions based on their buddies statements.

Oh, not sweating it at all. I like Dave, just hard to accept an opinion on our events if someone hasn't attended to form a true opinion is all.

He is right. Cru paintball has not had a series like this at their field. Nor has any other field in michigan( other then atomix when they were open). This league is a new thing and hopefully will turn out great. GL to chris and the rest of the cru guys with the league. If only it was 7man, then it would be a better league.

Yep, CRU has hosted many tournaments that were not IMS (or GLS for that matter), and all have run great that I've seen.

However you're right. CRU has not run a full X-ball tournament or league... nor has any field for many years in Michigan.

Luckily they have a great staff that knows how to keep things organized, and the USPA is coming in with their own management and staff to make sure that it is played the way X-ball is meant to be played. Between the USPA and CRU, this is bound to be a lot of fun.

I hope to see those last few slots fill up!

Woooo.... Im feeling some "OG TCP H8" up in here...

Your absolutely Dave...

those are the only events you have attended right? Events ran by TC/Rick since 2009, so you really have no idea how well events are ran there with out them.

Also its not like there completely on their own for the USPA, there are standards and guidelines that must be followed for the events, so unless you have contacted the owner of the USPA and got some details that I dont already know about please enlighten us all.

I have been playing and attending events since about 2001 Cru is very capable of running an event all on there own, they even picked up and moved in less then a year... Going by Michigan's current field trends and economy most fields would of just closed up and called it a good run and not move. But Cru as the passion along with dedication that you dont see often enough in Paintball fields.

But in all honestly, we have to wait and see... Just like with HydroTec Paintballs
