The PSP has some of the best staff around - they've worked through these types of issues in the past. They're doing everything within their power to get things back up and running.

Give them a little time and they have things put back together.

its time to think that weather needs to be included in PSP torunament schedule. Iīm no sponsor or anything, just my 2 cents but , think about changing Phoenix first, then texas, then chicago and then WC....I donīt know, whatever suits to avoid this crazy weather that has been affecting the PSP on the past couple of years

Dont get me wrong, I know PSP will do EVERYTHING to get this up and running, but business/image wise, fix the root cause (crazy weather on the schedule tournaments) and fix the problem.

Well, PHX for the first event wouldn't have been a bad idea.
It's the perfect weather right now and its already getting hot. I've been out in shorts, tshirt, and man flops lately, and it's only march. April...well I hope you guys like heat.

On topic:
That damage is crazy, chicago 2010 doesnt seem as bad anymore.

holy crap, i really can't belive the luck the PSP has with weather.
I remember a interview Lane gave and he said the number one thing he worries about at events is the Air compressor and that it is working smoothy, i HAVE to imagine over the last couple of years that has changed to weather!
The PSP curse has struck again!

has anyone ever thought to build paintball fields like football fields? with a slight curve to them...i feel like this would at least reduce the amount of poolage on the fields

Why not just ask some players that are just standing around waiting to jump in and help fix the fields up a little.That way they can get the games started quicker. I'm sure a lot of them wouldn't mind. But, I'm guessing for insurance reasons they can't.
