Tomorrow is the last Pump Night before the start of the series.
I'm gonna be there with Moongod, and maybe cake & ice cream.

I might even play a couple games.

WTF?

I'll be there from now on through the series, I said I would miss the first one due to prior commits. I should be there for the rest of the games.
I'll be there Thurs night for the weekly pump night, and Saturday I'll be playing for Santa at the annual Toys for Tots "Santa vs Grinch" game at Strategy Plus.
After the game there, I'll be headed over with Big Al of Ragnarok and we hope to have Gainman as a third for the tourney.

I hear that Blizzard gave up on it after the first one?
I can understand that, it's a ways to travel for such a small turnout. But hopefully it will get bigger.

And it means my boys will beat them in points overall.

It looked like us. We had 3 men to form a team and that was it.
Something here is just wrong.

It can't be the field. While I have limited experience with indoor fields (only been to 5-6) I would call it average or better to play on, and the owners are dedicated to promoting pump play - giving discounts and special days for pump players.
Even when they have 4 teams paid for, only one shows up?

I'm begging for players to fill a roster that is completely sponsored, totally paid for. In a series that is both Pump & Mech, with no electros allowed.

I would think it's just me and that maybe I needed to take a shower before coming over, but it's all the other teams that don't show and I don't think I'm that offensive.

So, ahhh...Umm, WTF?
Right now, I think we could win the entire 6-game series just for showing up and playing pump with one hand tied behind our back.

The next game of the pump/mech series is 12-18.
I'll be there, and that Thursday before on 12-16.
12-16 will be for fun, and I already know an old friend will be there with several dozen Splatmasters and a group of people.

It's not the field it's the region. I think it's safe to say there has to be thousands of paintball players that play pump from Virgina to Maine. I'm pretty sure i can get a couple of people to agree with me on that point.

BUT.... How many Pump TEAMS are there from Virgina to Maine? lets say a hand full of dedicated pump teams. That I know of (there might be more that i don't know of) I can count 5. Blizzard, Rubber Duckies, TopGun GSP, and Rocking Cocks are four 5-man teams that i know in the region. and I know of the 13th Legionnaries look to compete in 3man pump. (thats the fifth team) thats only 5 teams in a pretty big region. and the reason I'm using such a big region cause there would be even less teams if you cut the region down to say only the new england area.
So from Virgina to Maine (including West Virgina) there are what 13 states? So I can't count one pump team for ever state, or even one pump team for evey other state in the region. There is no foundation of pump teams in the region to support one pump event, let alone a 6 game series. due to the fact that the small amount of teams that are in the region are spread out over a very big region.

but on a positive note, i will say that i thought the cost of the 6 events, and the dedication of the field to hold a 6 event seires at such a cheap rate is a great idea. Just an idea or concept held to soon in this region. hopefully its changes.
