What would you all think of a OLD SCHOOL (Non-Electro Gun Tourney)???

Im tossing around the idea of holding an OLD SCHOOL tourney (no electro guns allowed), mostly for fun. I think it would be a blast to play as well as maybe have new comers not be so intimidated.

It would be great to see some classic cockers, mags, etc...

Let me hear your thoughts.

Thnx

I would do it. It would be a nice excuse to blow the dust of my old cocker. It would also depend on cost to the player as per usual (paint, entry, travel, ect.).
The sad part is that a lot of players today wouldn't do it just for the fun of it. There would have to be other incentives to come out to play like cash and prizes.
Still I think it's a great idea and maybe the handful of players that would do it could save a few bucks on paint.

They did this in a 10-mam format a few years ago, I think it was at Knights
Addicted, Storm; a whole bunch of the old timers. I think the rule was one battery, either gun or hopper
Addicted went way old school and started shooting from the deadbox, it got outta hand quickly.

I've been dying to do something like this for a while. Hyperball, spools, barrels... Eventually something like this is going to happen. People love nostalgia. Look at how well vintage car shows do even with the people that weren't alive when the cars were made. I'm just not sure if mech guns and hyperball are vintage enough yet to be cool to the kids that weren't around for it.

Sick. I always wanted to play that one field you see in the Push video with all the palm trees. Super OG woods tourney ball with mechanical guns and old *** angel LED's/Bushy's and Shoebox shockers!

I think sup air style mechanical only tourney, or have both sup air and hyper ball would be sweet. However I don't know how many people would be down for it. I'd love to play one just for a medal or trophy or something neat like that.

I Think it would be a lot of fun,
Now Im not sure what the paintball scene is like in your area but I have to ask myself, Is that demographic of player still out there? And is he on PB nation. And is he gonna be able to get 5 or 3 guys for a team.
And is you target 18-24 kid going to buy a spyder or want to use a rental?
I grew up shooting a pump phantom back in the day so I do remember the good old days. But I don't think there are enough old school players out there to put your money up and set this up.
Now, If we get "older" school and go pump that might work. Last years HRL series had a Pump Bracket for the last 4 or 3 events and they worked. 5-7 teams but it worked.

Or do a Big *** Bunkerfest again!!!
Thanks for what you guys do for us Animal

Looks like KrossFire Paintball in SA is gonna step up to the plate and throw one. I would of liked to do one, but they said they would hold it, in order to let me play (to not have a conflict of interest of throwing an event and playing it is as well). Cant wait for this event, it should be an Old School Blast!!!!

i personally think its a great idea, im sure there would be a big audience for it. a field near me held a 10 man event where everyone could carry a max of 200 rds, and could shoot any gun on any mode. it enede up being a similar idea to this because mostly everyone shot pumps or mech guns to conserve paint. that tourney was a huge success had like 20 something teams show up.

Nooooo I can't go that far. But If you do, they should have one at Sherwood in Indiana, too.

I like the "one battery per set up" thing, wasn't sppl or uwl doing this?
I do not own and old school gun like that, and personally I really like
the convenience of modern day electros. Sure I like their firepower as
well, but I wouldn't mind having that firepower restrained, if I could
use my really light, smooth and reliable electro. I'd totally go for a old
scholl gravity loader on my ego 11, that I can see as fun..
