thanks Timmy, for helping out with questions. He's correct D4 race to 2 allows one d3 player.

Unfortunately we had to cancel the 5 man tournament. Although the event itself seemed to gauge a lot of interest, we just did not get enough paid teams to run it. All teams have been contacted and will be refunded shortly. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you. We hope to run more 5 mans in the future!

Stereo typical long island tournament always canceled 2 days prior to the event! this is why no one signs up for long island event because all the fields flake out!

DO you know how annoying it is to move your whole schedule around to be able to play an event, get time off /trade shifts with people, to finally get the days off, and just as your about to get ready for the weekend the field cancels the event complete bull**** and unprofessional!

I really dont know what you would like them to do. How do you run an event with 5 teams. Im assuming the cost to run an event would outweigh the profit of 5 teams. Also thats basically shutting down a field from having teams come for practice and recball sunday.
You really want them to give DM12s away when there are 5 paying teams? the entry alone wouldnt come near the cost of 5 DM12s.

I have no affiliation with the field or league, ive never been there. But i think its quite disrespectful and unprofessional to say what you said in an online forum. Say it in person, say it over the phone, say it over PM. Either way represent your team like you are winners.

Bad,

Understand where we're coming from, our goal with the CTS is to grow the tournament team/ player base in NY, by giving people events that are well run, fairly reffed and with prizes that make them worth trying to win. The goal is twofold; Pete and I played when teams from the area were winning national events regularly, in fact we played on some of those teams, there's NEVER been a better facility on LI to practice, develop these players, etc. than right now. We want NY back on the tournament paintball map. (This btw isn't a slight on any of the teams like LIFT, etc. who have been grinding their ***** off) The second goal is to get people to our fields playing more and into our stores buying the supplies they need.

We sat for an hour trying to decide what to do, run an event and lose our shirts on it? Maybe. We extended the deadline and contacted everybody we talked to that SWORE they were coming to see what's up, and got a grip of excuses, etc. Some valid, some hysterical. (I'm saving money for x,y,z was my favorite. Win the event walk away with a gun worth a grand!!) After waiting a couple days, and nobody else signed up, we had to decide to not to lose roughly 2 grand on an event that we felt we gave every possible opportunity to succeed.

My question to you guys, is what could we do more to make these events happen, and us not to lose a pile of money doing so? I feel the prizes were as good or better than any other event in recent history, the field is amazing and the reffing and organization are very solid. We WANT these events to happen, we did everything we can conceive of to make them happen and the teams don't sign up.

If we're missing something, please don't keep it a secret,

Its just rough cause your right around Cup, vegas, EPL, MAPL(just a guess), and a few other tournaments that took away from your event. I dont really know what to tell you, just pointing something out

understandable, but still many reasons this is a bad decision on your part. But you guys should be used to running tournament with a low participating rate all. IE: your last 2 5mans have had 5 maybe 6 teams show up for both events....
A) your deadline to pay is tonight so canceling an event before that is just plan.. well you...
B) you should have put on your advertisement a disclaimer saying you need a certain amount of team to has this event.
C) keep the event going just offer different prizes by calling all the captains of the teams who paid and offer them a different option..

Also my apologize for the first post being so harsh but its not fun finding out something like that kinda of thing first thing in the morning.

My question to you guys, is what could we do more to make these events happen, and us not to lose a pile of money doing so? I feel the prizes were as good or better than any other event in recent history, the field is amazing and the reffing and organization are very solid. We WANT these events to happen, we did everything we can conceive of to make them happen and the teams don't sign up.
To answer this question is one huge factor ADVERTISEMENT!!! you made 2 forums about this event and didnt keep the hype up...
If you need a marketing consultant PM me im more than happy to help you out.
