PSP Grandstand tips?

I'm attending PSP Dallas, and it's my first event. I'm completely stoked that it's in Dallas this year (where I live), but I was wondering if you guys have any tips for the trade show/grandstands. Do you guys recommend going all 4 days? I planned on only going Saturday and Sunday. Are the finals on those days?

Thanks,
James

Finals are on sunday. To watch pro games, saturday and sunday work fine.

I'd recommend sunblock if you burn. Or an umbrella. The stands can get unbearably hot. They're basically metal bleachers like at a little league field.

Oh - Bring cash. Not all vendors accept credit, and the few atms on site usually run out of cash early in the event, and charge outrageous prices.

All four days is a TON of paintball and hot, hot sun. Although you are most likely acquainted with it.

Finals are on Sunday. As well as some divisional finals will be on the feature field.

The trade show is almost the same at all events. If there is something that is just coming out and you really want to get your hands on get there as soon as possible

What everyone else has said is awesome advice...I'm going to add to bring either a poncho/umbrella to the event...because let's face it, when was the last event it didn't rain one single day? Besides the PHX events since it never rains there.

Ok according to my memory I don't think it rained at CHI either, but still it rains a **** ton.

if you burn
So jealous of americans... here, you burn. There is no "if"

Your summer average UV index seems to be about 2-3, or over an hour til you burn. Here our standard summer index is 11-13 or a sub ten minute burn. Your weather service doesn't even go to 13...

depending where you live our summer average is about from 6-11.

I think I prefer yearly new zealand weather over new england weather.

Yell loud and have fun! I hate the stands for the most part because some people treat it like a golf tournament. Also, if you get the chance, find the 187 yelling section. Those guys are nuts, have a great time and know how to party

I feel like the entire town of where 187 crews is based out of came to PSP MAO last year... there section was insane haha. Bring cash money, as previous people said, some places don't accept credit, bring protection, like sunblock, etc. And never hurts to bring an umbrella just in case
