Thread: New England AO Days Consolidation Discussion

  1. #61
    Yep, Oct. 5th (a Saturday). People had mentioned doing it on a Sunday, but Saturday enables people to spend the night. And if CCPB works out, take advantage of Cape Cod night life.

    Hmmm...I didn't see a vote on it. I'd think the vote for "AO" would be on "AO" as apposed to another forum. There is a P&L tournament there the next day if that make any difference. I do know that some people from the area might have a hard time doing two big days in a row. If it comes down to it I'll be there but I'd rather do it a diferent day.

    if theres a tourney on oct 6 it may not be a good idea as there will be many teams practicing on oct 5 and it will be a big pain in the keister

    We decided on October 5th as a tentative date because allot of people had said late sept., early oct. worked best. It also gives us plenty of time to prepare.

    If there is enough opposition to where it will hurt turnout, we'll look at another date. Please, everyone speak up on this. Let us know if Oct 5th presents a problem that will keep you from attending.

    Oct. 12th work better for people?

    if there is a tourney the day after i doubt we could get CCPB to let us do it. but whatever, any saturday works for me.

    has anyone contacted the field and figured out prices for paint and air and all that good stuff?

    I plan on going to PNL so oct 5th wouldn't work. Why not have it a week before oct 5th. That way the people playing in PNL can get a feel for the fields while having a fun day of play?

    the last weekend in sept(28-29th) works for me.... either day to boot too =)

    figure right about that time the weather should be cooling down and most of the summer tourists (if its tourist season why cant we shoot them) should be gone or atleast a good portion of them....

    well i guess that is my 2¢ worth for this.....

    September 28 seems like a reasonable day. As far as the field, like I've said before, I have no problem with going to Cape Cod.
    There are three kinds of people in the world: Those who can count, and those who can't.

    With understanding comes understanding.

    If the saying is true that we are what we eat, aren't we all just cannibals?

    I can't add a poll, I'll start a new thread and add a link to it.

    No offense, but I think still think this is a bad idea. That was never the purpose of AO Days. It was not about having a tournament, and all the other stuff that goes with it… it is more about meeting each other and having a good time. And then saying you would open it up to the public…. Come on, this is getting a bit out of hand.

    My vote is still NOT to have a Tournament… and I can safely say that if there WAS, I would not come. Again, in my opinion that is not what AO Days were suppose to be about. If I wanted to go to a tournament, I could do that at ANY time… AO Day is something different.

    i like prizes and stuff, and i would love to play it as a tourney, but i dont feel like paying for it, i would rather just play.

    I still think a tournament is a bad idea. Many of us will not be coming as a group, and would like to not have to deal with that stuff. It would also mean the “tournament” folks would have priority on the fields and that is just not fair. Also, what about those who don’t WANT to “compete” like that? Do they deserve “prizes” any less?

    Again, I don’t think AO Days were suppose to be about that. Prizes are great, and I am sure you can STILL get prizes for folks without having a tournament. The NJ folks seemed to do quite alright… so can we. Just getting as many folks together as we can will be a great thing….. again, if we wanted a tournament environment we could get that almost anywhere and not bother making the trip.

    i like the idea of having sort of a pick-up tourney. no tourney environment, just get your team and play the tourney, then play others for fun between games, or talk, or whatever. no biggie. i think it would be fun, but paying isnt a good thing (i changed my mind, i dont want to pay anything beside field fees and paint and such.

    I think sniper's and shartley's ideas are both great.
    And best of all can be combined. As long as the whole affair is kept lo-key/relaxed it should be fun. If there were a pick-up tourney I think all prizes should be of the fun and humorous sort. This should be set up so we can all relax and get to hang out. But I'm with shartley, I'm not driving my butt all the way through or around Boston and then have a crappy time. I appreciate everyones effort and want to thank you for all that you guys have done so far, but if this turns into a serious tourney scene I won't show.

    People who are on teams with each other shouldn't play with each other, and I'm thinking maybe higher-level players ought to ref or sit. We should still have some rec games too. Maybe make the tourney real short (like 2-3 hours). I'm sure we can work it out.

    that would be cool because only one of my friends plays paintball consistantly besides me and i bought his mag so he cant go anyway . and i would like to play in a tourney so mixing up everyone would be cool. if you do that though dont mix everyone with everyone mix back players with back players and fronts with fronts and such so you dont get all front players or all back players


    EDIT: also doesnt matter which day for me we do this on

    I think a pick up tourney would be OK but any tournament style play should be secondary to what the event is about. Keep the event about meeting everyone and just having fun. I don't want to scare people away with the focus being about a tournament. Let's not get caught up in tournaments and prizes and all that stuff. Let's just have fun.
