US Paintball League’s West Coast Open July 24 – 26, 2009

The US Paintball League’s next stop will be at the world famous SC Village in Corona, California for the West Coast Open July 24 – 26, 2009.


This Southern California event is the result of merging two originally scheduled events; the June Bay City Open event with the August West Coast Open.  The July 24 – 26 date is late enough to avoid scheduling conflicts such as Father’s Day, Graduations and the 4th of July; yet early enough to allow kids to compete before having to return to school.  This will also allow teams ample time to save up money and get some great practices in at their local fields prior to the event.

To ensure the level of professionalism and competition that comes along with a US Paintball League event is maintained, the league will be bringing in their very own NPPL turf to lay down as the playing surface for each field.  NPPL PRO Refs and Rules will be in full effect and the Tradeshow will without a doubt satisfy all your mid-season paintball shopping needs.  Paint will be available for purchase from the paint manufacturers on-site.

The West Coast Open will offer 7 man and 5 man play across the following divisions:
Professional 7 man
Division 1 7man
Division 2 7man
Division 3 7man
Division 3 5man

Summer Savings!

The US Paintball League will be rewarding early birds with a discount of up to $350 off full entry for teams who pay in May or up to $175 off for teams who pay in June.  Registration is now open at www.uspaintballleague.com – with entry fees as low as $950, you can’t afford to miss this National event, so register your team today and save!

iPhone BPS Meter

Wherever you go, whatever field or game format, players now have the ability to track their rate of fire with nearly the same accuracy as a PACT timer. The BPS Meter for the iPhone is designed to be simple and easy to use. Don’t get us wrong- this isn’t a replacement for the PACT, but it certainly provides an inexpensive and more widely available tool for players (if you’re willing to put your $400 phone next to a paintball marker).

USPL PEVS DC Challenge Rescheduled and NPPL Returning

There have been some major changes in the last 24 hours with the USPL. They have consolidated to four events, rescheduled the DC Challenge, and may be adopting the NPPL name next season.

Here is the Press Release from the USPL:

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – April 29, 2009 – The US Paintball League (USPL) is committed to hosting great events and working to ensure that the schedule and venues are well planned and well executed. Following the successful season opener at Huntington Beach, the league has been speaking with many teams and evaluating the overall plan for 2009. After careful consideration, we have decided to adjust the schedule and the remaining venues to better suit the needs of our divisional team base and to better enable us to provide the best service to our customer base.

Effective immediately, USPL is rescheduling the PEVS DC Challenge and announcing that it will host three remaining events for 2009. By reducing the number of 2009 events to 4 total events, we will ensure that the level of quality and prestige remains as expected. This will also allow our teams the necessary time to recover between league events and to physically and financially prepare to compete in the USPL 7 Man Series.

Branding
The US Paintball League has purchased all the trade marks and rights to the National Professional Paintball League (NPPL) Super 7 World Series. Currently the US Paintball League will maintain the NPPL sanctioning rules and committees. The team members are in the process of deciding whether or not to use the NPPL name in the coming year.

Conferences
The Eastern and Western Conference titles for every division will be determined by each team’s top three scores (The DC Challenge in August must be included to win the Eastern Conference and the West Coast Open must be included to win the Western Conference). All 16 Professional teams will be competing in each event this season. DC Arsenal is currently leading the Eastern Pro Conference while San Diego Dynasty is leading the Western Pro Conference. The World Championships this October will be open to all teams as well as international teams looking to compete at the National level.

Event Prizes
The USPL will announce additional product and cash prizes on our web site May 10, 2009.

Series Prizes
A Series Prize Package will be announced for all Divisions which includes Free Entry into the 2010 Huntington Beach event (scheduled for April 9 – 11, 2010), as well as a gun sponsorship for all National Series 7man winners from Bob Long (more details coming May 10, 2009)!

DC Challenge Postponed
The DC Challenge has been postponed until August 28 – 30, 2009. If your team has already paid and registered for the DC Challenge, please phone the league at (714) 858-1923 or email info@uspaintballleague.com for details. USPL stands behind you, therefore, call us with questions and let us resolve any issues with teams needing reimbursements for changing flight schedules, hotel booking fees, etc.
