new to CO scene, pretty new to balling too

hey there guys. I moved to CO from FL last year and sold off all my gear before moving. Turns out I got the paintball bug again and I live about 20 minutes from Blitz.

I played speedball in FL maybe once a month. I really enjoy playing and would love to get on a rookie/novice team.

Any idea how I would get started in that?

My buddies at work gave me the bug, they like to play, but its all scenario for them, I can't talk em into speedball LOL

shmase,

i read all of that. didn't find it right to be PM'ing people that didn't invite my pm so figured I'd make a new post.

How often do you get up to blitz?

do they have pick up games on the airball field or is it only teams that can play there? Im really pumped to get my speedball on again!

they do have pick up games and teams that are there. the best day for turn out is sunday. a lot of people are out there that day and they are normally teams that are practicing and maybe looking for player.

to add on to what the other guy said, check out the team threads in this section and look for when they say tryouts are or post to see if maybe they might be looking to pick up a player. that's what i did

right on man i'll probably be up next Saturday, can't swing Sundays usually.

If there aren't teams practicing though will Blitz still open up the speedball field for rec play? Really don't want to play that scenario stuff...

Airball is open both days. People play on the fields both day, just more teams out on Sundays than Saturdays

right on thanks man, getting pumped to play! should be a nice weekend next weekend too

Do they have a 4500 fill station or just 3000? my old field wouldn't let people fill to 4500 in fear of them using the wrong fill station with their 3000psi tank...

Why? 3000 PSI will get you through almost any game (unless you are shooting a half case a game). The 3000 fills are in the staging pits, so very convenient.

Just make sure you give Chaz lots of hugs every time you go up front. He's an emotional guy Loves those man-hugs like you wouldn't believe

I plan on moving to CO in June, to Greeley to be specific I haven't read many good things about the field they have there so will most likely be going to Blitz. Looking forward to it though CO is my home state.

They are AMAZING!!! I love their grounds. Airball, Spool ball, Hyper ball, scenario... all of them are awesome. And since you're going to be in Greeley, I live in Fort Collins/Loveland. Hit me up and we can meet up to go there and play
