Congrats man! Way to go on the formation of the club. If you do a run of jerseys, keep me in the know. I'm not a full time student so can't play, but would definitely support the club with and pick up a jersey along with a few of my friends.

First off, I just wanted to tell everyone that we officially accepted our first sponsor APX Gear! The customer service is fantastic and they sell high quality paint for cheap! I look forward to working with them!!! On another note:

Floopso: I believe you can join the club and play recreationally with us; you just cant compete. As far as jerseys, we have received numerous requests for jerseys and I would love to help everyone get a great jersey and support the team, but I need to consult the head of recreational services first to make sure it doesn't break any Iowa licensing policies. I will keep everyone updated on this thread though.

Da Griz:Thanks for the support, and I hope we win this! A lot of the guys are paying their own way through college, and paintball is expensive as you know! Being able to save money by winning a free jersey would certainly be great!

As far as future plans: The ISU guys and I are going to work on possibly holding a charity tournament in Iowa next spring, and it is open to NCPA teams as well as local teams! Our goal is to raise a lot of money (charity has not been decided yet), and have a fun tournament that everyone can go to!

I will keep everyone updated, and if you have any questions, I am happy to answer!

-Aaron

Hey everyone, I know its been a while since I posted, but here is a general update:

We are currently lining up a lot of cool stuff for our first year! We plan on practicing with ISU and Augustana throughout the year, and we managed to get Aidan Murphy from Distortion to coach us!

Also, jerseys are currently in the design process through HK Army! They are still in early stages, but the first draft looks great! I will be sure to post a pic on here when we get the final design.

As for something that many people probably thought would never happen, I am very close to getting some racquetball courts in the University Fieldhouse for reball snap shooting practice! Its no field, but it is certainly a great start!

Dan, the new ISU president, and I have been talking with Brad at Archery as well about planning a charity tournament for the spring in which any player from any state is invited! There also is a good chance of a giant CyHawk trophy to mark the start of our great rivalry!!!

On a more depressing note, I have been having a lot of trouble getting the school to come to terms on sponsorships. Its probably been about 3 months of back and forth emails and meetings that have gone nowhere. I will keep working my hardest though! As always, I want to grow the sport and make it as affordable as possible for its members. I will be sure to let you all know as more unfolds!

Thank you for all of the unwaivering support!!!

Sincerely,

Aaron Kaplan

For those of you that wanted a jersey, I will be doing another round in september. Please pm me if you are interested.

I am pretty sure they can. There may be a limit though. It is up to licensing. If I can get a complete tally, then it will be easier to get them for the public. I am still deciding how much to charge for the jerseys. Here is the Jersey design!

I'll be at the OrgFair for part of the day helping run the table for the University of Iowa Powerlifting Club, I'll be sure to stop by and hopefully spread the word about your club.

I probably wouldn't be able to join, but it is good to see you guys be able to get something going. Hope it works out and you get enough serious interest. I wouldn't want this to end up being something that a bunch of freshman get interested in for a semester and then find out that it isn't just another opportunity to **** around. Get serious about it and go out and win a few tournaments.

Go Hawks.

EDIT: Remember that if you use the team funds for anything, including jerseys or any kind of uniform, you MUST get it approved through Rec Services. I believe Ray Beamer is the guy to talk to. You most likely know all of this already, but you can never be too sure. Good luck.

We would love to see you join if you could, but of course there's not always time (or money for that matter...). Definitely stop on by and say hi! I would be happy to get you in on a round of tshirts when we get those going as well. As far as funds go, you are right, the school is very stingy about club purchases. I am currently planning the budget to account for that. we will probably attend 3 tournaments this year as a team. Our coach is Aidan Murphy from the D1 team Distortion, so I am excited to see how this year plays out.
