Exclamation Calling All NEIC Teams and nearby college teams!

So we have an event on Saturday, and they way it looks is that we'll have 5-6 teams. Its gunna be a nice 45* in Taneytown Maryland. I cant believe MU, PSU, IUP, and Towson havent signed up yet?!?! Get with it guys!

Teams in the North, aka: Hartford, Boston, Northeastern, Oswego, Army, Navy...why dont you send some lines down? I promise February Maryland weather is 15* warmer than October Syracuse weather.

I remember 2008-2009-2010 before all this North/South Nonsense...we'd have 15+ teams at events

Didnt we learn anything from the Civil War? North and South can play in the same events! And further more Id rather a longer drive to an event to see 15 + schools than a 1.5 hour drive to play 3 schools....Both divisions have had these events this year.....


Finally: For the 2012-2013 year, I say we go back to having one event in the North and one event in mid-south each semester and that way everyone gets 2 longer drives a year.


SIGN UP! http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3730755

Thats it Im done rambling, but we need more teams to make it a better event! We'll play it anyway, but Id rather get 4th out of 15 then 1st out of 6.

For most of these teams it's not about not wanting to go, it's about not being able to afford to go.

I believe you're right Enderle, partially. It seems to me that teams cant afford to go to extra tournaments because they've already commited to their North/South schedule. I know for us at Buffalo and Oswego this is the case. I'm 100% with the OP, splitting the conference has not benefited us. Competition has not gotten better it has gotten worse. My first year with my club we went to Frost Bowl at AA and there was something like 20 teams there. This year Frost Bowl had like 5 or 6 in a location that wasn't that much farther away for most schools.

Splitting the conference is nonsense. Let's get back to 1 big conference, and deal with the consequences. You can't please all the people all the time, but it'd be better to have the bigger competitions again. Field owners would be happier, and teams would benefit from seeing varied competitors. I'll even say that Headrush has gotten stale for us in Buffalo since half of our events in the North were held there. I love the field but people need to be willing to travel, and get back to the roots of paintball, and I think that's what this is about.

That's my .02 I hope in the very least my point is clear, even if disagreed with.

Good luck to everyone through the rest of the year. Sorry if I dredged up a dead thread.
