Excited for some Central Ohio paintball. Would love to see open play (maybe the weekends before tournaments?) and a cap on bps but besides that am looking forward to it.

Paint is official. RRison Haze and Pure. Pre-order will be $50 and $60 respectively. Day of prices are $60 and $70 respectively. I'll let everyone know as soon as the pre-registration site is up.

Pre order is MSRP. RRison is a very good paint and well worth the price. RRison is shipping us the paint straight off the run so you won't get it any fresher. We won't sell old garbage paint.

Coming from someone who has been around a minute, I've got some questions.

1. Insurance: have you thought about this? With those BPS lack of restrictions, which in my opinion is incredibly ignorant, you do realize most insurance is going to say that's pretty unsafe right?

2. Paint: Ridiculous prices, especially for how little your payout is.

3. "Promotion" status: presents all of it's own legitimacy problems. Also not being an actual field may bring up some zoning issues, etc.

Being from central Ohio it would be good to see this work, I'm just a little skeptical. Really not trying to come off as a prick, but it doesn't seem that you really thought out all of the potential issues.

I actually had to do some research to learn anything about that paint, and i've been playing PSP events since 09. Just get a deal through KEE or GI, and I guarantee the deals will be much more appealing for potential players.

If I'm paying $60-$70 for a case of paint, they better be heat seeking.

Insurance has already been secured. They had no issue with the bps.

We wanted to offer a high quality paint. RRison is giving us some manufacturing control. We still are selling pre order at MSRP.

Our events are in "light industrial" zoning area. We have no issues with zoning.

This is exactly my point to. If you do the math, its $65 a person entry fee for the open class. Now if i were to pre reg (which wouldnt happen), im already lookin at 115 spent, and asduming 10 teams actually show, i still wouldnt win that back...

Kee and GI couldn't meet our quality requirement.

Not to mention another thing i just thought of, i know its the same type of game (tourny vs scenario), but splatter parks big game is the weekend before your first event. People dont have alot of money these days and spend a little more carefully. So i could come to your event, and spend hundreds for a chance to win $100of it back, or i could go spend $60, know that at least several hundred people will show up, and have a chance to win prizes worth a couple hundred dollars.....id say thats an easy choice

Pretty simple really. They couldn't guarantee that what they sent us hadn't been sitting in their warehouse for months at a time.

The thing is your asking for tournament quality paint shipped right to your event and your not even a big event! Why would they waste time and money to make a fresh batch for you at a cheap price when you have no credibility behind your organization! You could have asked for paint that has been sitting for a month **** even two months and it would still shoot jus as great for your event and at a cheaper price helping out your "participants" whoever they might be! But instead in your ignorance you picked a company who said hell ya we will give you fresh paint shipped to your event and at our highest price cause your dumb and willing to pay for it! Really smart guy!

How will the tournament run? Given 10 teams register, how many games would be played in the prelims and then so on? Trying to figure out how many cases would need to be ordered.

Can any fee be paid for a team to bring their own paint?

I appreciate hearing everyone's concerns. Our goal is to put out the best events possible. It's unfortunate that some of you feel that we won't be able to. I hope we will be able to change your minds in the future.

Race to 2. Prelims will be round robin. 10 teams would be a single division. More than 10 teams would likely split into 2 divisions. 1 division would take top 4 teams into a round robin finals.

Im sorry, we are going to be event paint only.
