If Xball isnt possible, how about we try a format like Match Style Raceto2.

After doing some research and what not, and the whole controversy about xball teams not being able to play because of lack of teams/funding. I think this format of MATCH STYLE Raceto2 would be a great way for teams to get both Xball and raceto2 in the same format/division.

Here is Minor Leagues Paintball from Tennesee Rules. I dont recomend you take thier rules directly (as that would be like stealing a patent), but still follow Match Style raceto2 with low entry and great prizes. If possible contact them and see if Midwest can be an extension of thier league.

Also I know Vicious series is running this format, and its working very well for them as well.

Rate of Fire:
----- D4/D3 RaceTo-2 will have a 12.5bps rate of fire cap and must be in a PSP approved firing mode.

Paint Info:
All Minor League Paintball events are EVENT PAINT ONLY. We will have paint available for special event pricing of $40/case. Same paint = level playing field.

Reffing:
----- D1 PSP team CHATTANOOGA CEP will provide reffing. Minor League Paintball chose to do this to provide the most qualified and experienced refs in the Southeast. Where other series lack quality and consistent reffing, Minor League Paintball has stepped up to the plate.

Player Misconduct:
Any judge on the field, as well as the Ultimate Judge can assess Player misconduct penalties. Any action deemed to be player misconduct could result in a 1 for 1 penalty, 2 for 1 penalty, suspension, and or ejection. Actions deemed inappropriate can include swearing, hostile physical contact between individuals, throwing equipment, or just being a poor sport and making the event less fun for other players (this includes counter-coaching, etc)

Some Clothing Rules:
All players must wear long pants and a long-sleeve jersey type shirt. Player clothing may not have excessive holes, rips, tears, or anything else that would inhibit a Referee’s ability to monitor a player.

Metal and ceramic spikes and cleats are not allowed at any Minor League Paintball event for 2011. Track spikes are acceptable as long as the spikes have been removed. This is done to ensure the safety of players, staff, and the fields.

Color rules will follow current PSP color restrictions. (Yellow for 2011)

Spectators:
Spectators are encouraged to come out and support their team. All that we ask is that fans respect the officiating staff as well as all of the players at the event. Counter-coaching will not be allowed by any player or spectator.

Hotel Information:
Downtown Chattanooga offers a variety of options to serve as lodging accommodations.
Hotel information for EVENT #1 can be found here….

www.downtownchattanooga.com

Media:
Minor League Paintball does not charge for media passes. However, as media, the MiLP’s only request is to make all other media files available for the players, families, and friends to enjoy. Photographers interested in attending any of the Minor League Paintball RaceTo-2 events this year should email info@milp.tv to inquire about a media pass.

Approved Media List:
DevilDog Media – Paxton Elliott
337 Productions – Lee Bomar
Stitched Productions – Stuart Thompson
Legit Pics – Matt Schmiss

Field Layout:
Minor League Paintball RaceTo-2 Events will be played on the most current PSP layout available at the time of the event.

Seems like a good half way inbetween format so that teams can play an XBALL style match with only 5 players.

Just a thought, and I wanted to know what other Midwest players thought.

Robbie, Im not trying to steal or take your league at all. Im just trying to show the Midwest a league and format that YOU put together, and maybe can learn a thing or two from your hard work .

Could definitely be a good bridge between normal raceto2 and raceto4.

And for field owners that complain about the loss of business from byop, they could just charge like a $100 byop fee. I figure 20~ cases at a $5 profit would be a right amount.

Don't think people would mind paying $20 each to bring their own paint, hell even $40.

Could always have a part of the sign up that says " do you intend to bring your ownpaint. If so add an extra X amount"
