Pump play - player feedback/thoughts

I've been debating on hosting a pump play day at my field.
Sooo I was wondering if there were any specifics or particular things pump players prefer when making a decision on which location or event you attend. ?

Location!!! We can't get a decent turnout of pump players in florida for some reason.

I went to a huge pump event in Lakeland FL about 6 years back. I know it was posted on pretty much every pump forum to drum up support from the local players. Also there were fields just for us to use.Other than that i think maybe having a lower price for a single tank fill instead of all day air since we rarely need more then one fill (some fields I've been to just have a set price for all day air). Also carrying co2 cartridges might be a good idea

Yeah... pump play does not have a super strong presence in the area but, i know that people are playing.. just in very small numbers.

My team ran a sucessful pump day at our local field. We Called it Slowball Day. Had a great turn out (for pump) 25 players or so. We played on the speedball field back to back games street ball style. No teams just for fun. Everyone that attended had a blast and we were able to make the day inexpensive thanks to the field owner selling paint by the bag. We have another event scheduled this month. We pushed it as a great way to try pump. From first timers to seasoned players and offered our equipment up to try. From high end CCM markers to stock class phantoms and everything in between. We gave inexpensive prizes like gold, silver and bronze painted cans of beer microfibers and socks.

I would say start small. Creat a fun environment and people will show up.

If you happen to be in the 518 Albany NY area check us out. Capital Combat Zone. We also have a cool video I had trouble linking. It's pined in the link I posted.

Location, and keep the semi-autos out of it entirely.

I have seen it where they try and have like 1 electro per 10 pumps but it still turns into a **** show.
