i also got a few complaints how the chat window was too small..

what we could do is go use the chat room on special ops paintball..

no one ever uses it..

we also need to find out when is the best times to have meetings.. and how many times we will have meetings.. since we are still in the early stages of this we should have meetings once or twice a week to make sure we get all the basics and stuff figured out.

any objections

Comments

Concerns

or questions?

I think skype would be easier, but I see the complications. Gmail, I just clicked "pop ou" and window was bigger.


Also, what happens if we miss a practice? I will be in Florida at the end of march, so I can't make a practice then. However I can probably make the rest. I was already planning on going to the PBX opening, so thats fine. I just was wondering, because the bigger of a player pool we have, the more people we have to make sure we have a team at an event.

I would also like to be on the player pool as well as the LL4 squad. :tup:

I wish my HS had a team put it's considered a gun. I should be able to make all of the practices. I also saw the poorboy is doing a team to. and Mike even said he knows cpx. I'm guessing so does BMB since from what I take it he goes there once a week during spring and summer. Just thought I'd let you guys know.

I think it would be a good idea to have as big a player pool as possible, so when someone can't go theres plenty of people to fill the space.

Sounds like a good idea. Depending on the size of the pool, we might make two lines, one for the serious guys and one for those that just want to dabble in tourneys/organized scenarios

I'm more of the latter due to my extreme lacrosse season. I am serious about playing the organized scenarios and tournies though.

I like that idea. I'm all for organized scenarios and all but I'm not all that big on tourneys and I'm not about to drop 100 bucks for a jersey when I've got perfectly good gear already.

I'm down for going to Legends but I'm probably gonna need a ride there.

we only figured out a team name, we are: The Enforcers

and we talked about our jersey, which is going to be made by kohn, and most likely be Multicam.

we are also going to have 3 team practices leading up until Living Legends.

1 at Ohare, the PBE grand opening, and 1 at CPX a month or weeks up until Living Legends.

we have yet to figure out an attendance policy for the practices..

I can probably make at least 2 practices if not all as long as I get at least a 2 week notice. Work is already getting super busy and I need some time to request Saturdays off. It sucks because it usually doesn't get busy at work until like May so this means this year is gonna be great for overtime. Keep me updated.

BMB I have a question:

Do you have to be in the IBA to attend and learn from those meetups?

Like for me the only thing that is preventing me from doing something like this is travel and time.

I can attend most practices at ohare or pbx but I'll be having problems going to cpx at the moment.

Travel bothers me because my car sucks but I'll be getting another one soon and time sucks for me because of my classes, especially during these next couple of months (I'm studying to be a nurse).

That said I can probably attend some meetups but I can't fully commit at the moment because of my priorities. However I still want to learn whenever free time I have and not be behind if i finally clear my schedule and commit to this.

Would that be possible?
