PSP World Cup Grows With Addition of Field Owners Conference

Having attended the PSP World Cup for a good few years back to back starting off as being a ref working hard on the fields in the heat so players from the semi-pro ranks down to the newest of players could enjoy the sport until the transition into playing at the event with friends and moving onto European teams no one can dismiss the feeling of attending the PSP World Cup.

Even with the changes in the venue from the long standing Wild World Of Sports at Disney, the thought of any team not attending for their chance to WWC (Win World Cup) really shows the level of commitment & desire to improve in the sport. Being a field owner or manager should not be any different (aside from being on the field wanting to Win World Cup) it should be a time for those working in the industry to gather, regroup, enjoy a few drinks, learn from the efforts from the season past and really push forward into the upcoming season to really expand your own share of the market place and to grow the sport.

Why miss out on meeting paintball industry heavy weights face to face?

The Field Owner & Business Conference: includes continental breakfast, lunch, keynote, networking happy hour for $75 if pre registered or $95 at the door the day of. Registering prior to October 10th saves you $20 which really is an easy way to help grow your own business, network with other field owners and to make some direct inroads with the industry. Since the event will be held the day before the tournament starts so have your flight arrive before Wednesday Oct. 19th  get yourself settled in early and since the venue is just 20 minutes from the PSP World Cup site what really is there to lose?

So don’t drag your butt if your going to be attending World Cup in October head on over to  http://www.fieldownersconference.com now pre register and save $20 for a few drinks or maybe even some new gear from the great vendors who support the industry just like yourselves.

NPPL Chicago Open & Living Legends 4

We hit the road Friday morning from Atlantic Canada all the way to CPX Sports to check out the NPPL Chicago Open and Living Legends 4. We also took back with us to Canada a nice new 44 piece NPPL Sup Air field which we are pleased to offer to help grow the sport of 7-man in Atlantic Canada.

The drive was very f*cking long but once we landed and the weather was nice it really made up for the excessive amount of driving. We will be posting videos and sharing a few stories and possible rumors that we heard over the weekend shortly.

We also would like to say congratulations to 3CT which is made of of some of the top Canadian paintballers on their Division 2 First place finish. Keep your eyes on these guys for the season and they surely will be making a few visiting to the podium this season.

Until we get around to posting up stuff from the weekend you can keep yourself busy with an glimpse from the Miss NPPL bikini contest.

Coming Up To Almost A Full Year Without Blog Posts

So here at ThisISPaintball.ca we decided that we would be silent for one full year from writing blog posts about paintball events, league updates, product reviews or new releases to show our concern over where the industry is heading and how the loss of the core values which paintball once held were really being throw to the side in the search for profits.

While there has not really been many of those issues disappear ThisISPaintball.ca is starting to create and share content again but will only be showcasing news from those companies which are building a healthy paintball industry and trying to showcase the local events which are really supporting true players which are keeping the industry afloat with buying & paying for their products.

Good luck to all teams & players in the 2011 season hopefully lessons can be noticed to the failures in the past few years in the paintball industry and adjustments made to make sure the sport keeps growing in the correct fashion without forgetting where the sport started off from.
