I second that opinion. Well worth the drive just for the experience and I was able to pick up one of those new Exalt squegees.

This is absolutely true. That's basically the reason I went. We got to play good paint all and learn a lot. I certainly know exactly what I will be improving upon that itself was worth it all. Thanks 187! Awesome to meet you all and dave great job setting this up too.

The Fresh,

Thanks. However, the players from 187 are the one who set-up and ran the tryouts - they are the ones who deserve the credit for a job well done. It was 100% their idea to setup stations, track performance and then run points for further evaluations.

Great day of paintball with you guys- I didn't come up expecting anything like a spot on the team or even callbacks really, I just knew there would be some great competition there and I wasn't let down. Prime day of grinding.
Good luck to all the people who got called back, hope whoever is picked deserves their spot

P.S. Whoever was on the sideline of the snake drills commenting on if I've ever played snake before- actually no, it was pretty much my first time holding a paintball gun ever actually...
Thanks for letting that fool know whats up Mr. Sweatsuit

Is there going to be another one anytime in the near future? A little rebuilding before cup/2013? Would love my chance at a pro spot!

Not likely before Cup...But possible we might hold another tryout after Cup.

We're also looking to do a Streetball event before Cup - always a good way to get noticed.

I think the streetball idea is awesome, since I feel no one expects there to be tryouts all the time. Even if 187 players can't captain each team, it would be a nice new recball day that's a little more advanced than the normal walk on crowd. Returning players/people that are new to the area could use it as a way to meet people and find teams to play on.

I feel like you could benefit from more Sundays being added to the year, the field is so busy now, which is awesome. If 187 is ever not practicing on a Saturday it could be a good day for some fun like this.
