Guilty of being delicious
Ill be an hour north of Syracuse so if anyone needs a third ill step in.

Call me Cody
Didn't end up staying for pump and OG, but Nick from One Eleven Photo covered everything, so keep a look out for his photos (Flickr: NickMartinPhoto's Photostream)
My photos are up. Lighting was very hard to work with, so please excuse the noise and blur.

I tell you what it was great to play another pump tournament, but what a Terribly ran event.
They didn't start pump division untill 2 hours AFTER they had planned/told us, i understand things are tenitive and there are delays but they had us sitting in gear for the first game in the dark for 2 hours.
We played on a feild much bigger then the one the site gave specs on, and the one teams practiced for.
The refs didn't make much of an effort to clarify certin calls or keep them consistant. I was pulled for having my barrel to high between the start cones (it was inside of the two cones) however i was the only one pulled for this and there seemed to be alot of OG and pump players to have done so before and after i was pulled. Which is fine, what kind of rule is that? Wasn't mentioned in the captins meeting which i attended.
I also made a blind shot on a player on HFC over a lane blocker and on the VERY top of his rotor. He was oblivious to it, one of those shots that you need a ref to see for the elimination. Now i saw the burst, went behind the dorito stared directly at the ref, he seemed to have recolonized the hit immediately, but didn't call the player out, he stepped in much closer and watched him play, didn't shout to him or point him out. So after this player got another 15 secs of playing time the ref goes in and pulls a one for one. What!?!?! He should have pulled the player when he saw the hit, or have given the player the signal, the kid had NO IDEA he was hit, so he wasn't purposely playing on so there was no penalty.
There was a stink made about a player on Scrubs calling himself out, ref told him he wasn't allowed to talk when shot, i mean he was shot he got out of his bunker and yelled OUT! ....who doesn't do that? Paintball 101
the ref who was in charge of the PA'ing the games mumbled so much it was pointless listening to him, so when the thrid round came (the schdule changes in the third round b/c of format) it was difficult to know when or if you were suppose to play.
Then we waited "30" mins, im being conservative i would say there was more time but i'm not sure, for the last game of the prelims to start. That was due to the fact the refs weren't paying attention to the format and the teams playing which had actually resulted in 2 extra games played that weren't suppose to take place per format rules, one of which they had admitted to doing, and the other they kept the score for. I don't remember the scores exactly but it skewed the totals from what i remeber.
Like i said i had fun playing pump, paintball in general. But i don't think i had fun playing this event, if that makes anysense.
