Children's CANCELLED for 2018!!!
« on: February 13, 2018, 07:21:15 PM »
Fellas, Taylor and I were talking and we planned to make Children's our official team scenario this year. However, I wasn't seeing any dates for 2018 posted online. So I reached out to them, and Matt responded with:

"Jake,

Appreciate your interest in our event and thanks for reaching out. We are taking 2018 off, there will be no paintball event in 2018. The team that host the event was getting burned out so I decided it was best to take a year off.

Thank you for your support, look forward to seeing you in 2019! Watch the website for details!

Matt Ames"


I responded:

"Your team that hosts, are they local? What is their responsibilities? As in, do they do all the major promoting, logistic setup, coordinating, etc. or are they primarily game generals and focus on running the gameplay?"

Matt's:

"When I say team I mean the local team of us that are responsible for fundraising $60,000 + from corporate sponsors, figuring out the logistics of everything off field. Managing the on field activities etc... So basically everything that goes on."

Me:

"I gotcha. Just checking if it was something we could help with. But, that's out of our ballpark. And I understand needing breaks. You guys are well deserving of it too. We look forward to 2019!

Jake Hansen
Muddy Water Boys"


Matt:

"For sure Jake. Seriously appreciate your support & that you would consider helping!"

Sad to hear as that was such a boon for that cause.

What about tombstone or one of those events that is near Texas or Oklahoma?

Shane, Dorkfish, Nightingale, and I rocked Tombstone last year. Was able to dodge all the party stuff easily and had a fairly laid back event.

I'm going this year to a scenario. Been looking at other options. Children's was gonna be the big team spot, and I know even if wasn't a few guys were planning on going. So just wanted to post this up and notify the children's crew.

My summers are busy with church camps so I'm looking for an event that works around them. Will post up soon. After Florentinos week.

Makes that October event at Paintball Explosion jump to the forefront of my consideration. Would be a good Birthday event for myself! Jake you may not be aware of that event. I found it on Facebook. I will get some info gathered.

Paintball Explosions fields look wicked! They have a flippin boat field!

www.pbbomb.com

Doing some looking because I am killing time before I go get some spaghetti. The 3 games I am interested in are these.

Wasteland at Avid Sports Guthrie, OK. It is a Viper event. May 5-6. Kraus from the B.O.B.s is a General.

Tombstone at Avid Sports Guthrie, OK. Also a Viper event. Oct 7-8. B.O.B. run event

Clowns vs. Zombies 8 at Paintball Explosion East Dundee, IL. Oct 14. No clue who generals are or who is going. Their fields look awesome!

Tombstone or a trip to PB explosion in October sound really good.  That would be a great time of year at both places!

Thoughts guys?

There is Wastelands that is earlier in the year. I think Dorkfish was starting a post on that.
