    Posted: 01 June 2005 at 7:38am

Yesterday we had practice for the Chicago PSP event.  My intention last season was to be on the team this year but several things including my father having a triple bypass a few weeks ago have kept me from pursuing this so I'm just helping RAT Factory to get ready. 

RAT Factory is back in business doing PSP this year and there was also a few Wicked Air guys there too.  It's kind of intimidating playing with this caiber of player but there is so much to learn from these guys. The #1 rule for the team is if you cheat you are off the team for good.

The field we play at is a tough field to negotiate and is very rough.  It's just going to elevate the game when on primo field's like Atomix.  Practices are VERY tough and I'm shot up from head to toe.

I also found out that TE has been using WAS boards in their guns

Anyone going to Chicago?

I've had thoughts of going to Global.  Which team did you pre-reg. on? 

MMG is definately out.  Not saying that I won't stop by the field after some indoor speedball.

It's pricing like what I see for Global that makes me flat-out want to get out of paintball for good.  I can justify the entry fee but not the paint prices at Hell Survivors. 

The fact of the matter is that any joe schmoe can get paint for $30.00 a case today ......

Sounds like everything HS did to make changes is great with the exception of FPO.

Imagine scrolling down the page and all you see is that one after another...

2005 Chicago Open. The event will be held June 22nd-26th at the Bolingbrook Recreation and Aquatic Complex. The Complex is conveniently located about half an hour from both major airports near hotels, restaurants, and entertainment.

It's FREE to watch

If you've never been and can make it I would check it out.
