Cool **** The GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES of 2005! ****

THE GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES OF 2005!

The grounds of Hollywood Sports Park are set to host the GRAND SLAM SERIES of 2005 at the newly constructed Hollywood Sports Park STADIUM in BELLFLOWER, CA. Load your pods, strap your boots, and fasten your belts! With brand new paintball stadium seating (elevated and covered!), gorgeous artificial turf, huge team staging zones, and massive stadium lights for night games, the COMPETITION IS READY TO BEGIN!

The GRAND SLAM SERIES of 2005 will be NPPL modified rules the first weekend, followed by XBALL modified the next date. The rules have been carefully constructed by Giovanni D’Egidio who when asked to comment stated, “Yes, the GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES is a brand new venture and a brand new avenue for the paintball industry and the paintball community. The rules are modified. I’ve spoken to field owners across the country; from the Pacific to the Atlantic. XBALL can be a BIGGER SPORT, -if affordable to the masses! Let the Professional Athletes play how they play, but let the real paintballers, play at the GRAND SLAM SERIES of 2005! This series will once and for all decide who is the best of both worlds!”

The 2005 Calendar year has officially begun, and with the breaking news of the GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES underway, -it looks like paintball will have a HOME RUN YEAR!

The GRAND SLAM TOURNAMENT SERIES will be two events: a revised version of NPPL format and a revised XBALL format. Games will run for 20-minutes or the 1st team to land 7-points against their competitors will WIN! There will be two 10-minute halves, and teams will switch sides during 1/2 time. There will be shorter penalties, double elimination, and all teams will be scheduled by lottery during the Captains Meeting. Rules will be modified from XBALL and the NPPL. 7MAN and XBALL Gun Modes are acceptable! All GUNS ARE LEGAL!! –EXCEPT FOR Automatic Burst!! The Grand Slam Series of 2005 to determine who is the best of both worlds will take place February 26th – 27th and April 2nd – 3rd at Hollywood Sports Park, CA. February 26-27th will be NPPL Modified Format. April 2nd – 3rd will be XBALL/SPEED Modified Format. FIRST PLACE will receive a FULL SC VILLAGE SPONSORSHIP CONTRACT valued at $20,800.00!!! The second place winners will receive a FULL HOLLYWOOD SPORTS PARK SPONSORSHIP CONTRACT valued at the same price! The entry fee is at $750/per team, which includes air! Field Paint Only, -starting at $49/per case. Rookie & Open-Class, -No PROS!! More Info Coming Soon! Visit www.HollywoodSports.com

I say teams boycott these FPO tourneys. That is the only way we are going to get the message through to the promoters that WE WILL NOT LET THEM GOUGE US!!!!

Yeah that is Gouging at its finest. I mean at 750 bucks per 3 man team you think they would be making a very nice profit. But then to add 50 bucks per case for field paint only in a xball format that is nothing but paint slinging. Well all I can say is and I hope the rest do the same........

someone please enlighten me, cause last time i was there during the holidays, i dont remember seeing any stadium seating? Maybe little league baseball bleachers, but i hardly think that counts. maybe im blind.

fpo?!?! Talk about padding the pockets to the max.

I am guessing the stadium is not in the regular playing area. I go to HSP weekly and have not seen this stadium either but I had heard rumors of it being built.

Lets assume the reason they are allowing "all guns" is because of the fpo. Ha, f em.

I don't see anything saying it's a 3-man event.

Nevertheless, an X-ball style tournament...FPO???? WTF is that all about... It's funny how they say:

$750 per team and $50 per case of paint is supposed to be affordable???
