Ok, I'm gonna make my pick here.

Top 5 in no particular order:
Forest Fire Red
California Gridlock
Forest Demons
Smart Corps
Cruel


Wow! I picked that one pretty close! Only difference is, I picked Gridlock instead of GTF All-Stars. Congratulations to all the above!

It was a great tournament, with very few issues. I really want to thank the GLR and A-Team from Canada. Without there help in getting ready for the finals games, we would have been in a rough situation. Thank you Chris from GLR, for being our pit boss and keeping a level head in the pits.

Great tournament guys and girls! Look forward to the next one!

What a weekend.

First and foremost...the thank you's;

Thanks to Spec Ops for the opportunity.... SPPL is still as addictive as crack.

Thank you Jayson N...... all your work this year is appreciated & I really enjoyed the new format.

Thanks to Curtis, Brian and all the local refs.... this was probably the best ref job I've seen in all the events I've attended. The whole event ran pretty much on schedule, and when there were delays, the players didn't suffer.... the staff/refs made up the delays out of their own breaks, meals, etc. in order to get things back on schedule.

Thanks to all the great teams that attended. The people I get the opportunity to meet at the SPPL events are still the biggest draw for me.

Thanks to the Great Lakes Rangers for giving me the opportunity to come up and play with you. You guys never fail to amaze me with your devotion to sportsmanship, and your willingness to help out other teams with whatever they need, whenever they need it. You guys are the poster child for "what's right with paintball players".

Thank you to all the "pro's" who attended & took the time to talk to folks, take questions & generally just be approachable .... I saw a lot of players get a lot of quality time with some of the giants of the sport.

Special thanks to all of Smart Corps, Cruel and Forest Demons for giving GLR the opportunity to lend a hand in your deadboxes.... it was like having a front row seat to "The Greatest Show On Earth", SPPL Edition.

The Canukistani's .... you guys are still the friendliest bunch of folks in the SPPL & hopefully next year the Canadian dollar will be strong enough for you to come to the Southeast Qualifier :blush:

Thank you to the players who attended. The whole weekend was really neat to be a part of & I'm not sure what my favorite was, but here are a couple of the things that stuck in my head;

-Greatest quote .... "The trees down here are much harder than the trees in Canada"...first words out of the mouth of the poor guy who ran into a tree during the match.

-Greatest Visual ... seeing a pack of players in camo with Tippmans strapped on, standing around two players in bright jerseys and spaceguns, taking pointers on how to play a bunker and cover a lane. Twenty feet away, there was a pack of bright jerseys standing around a guy in full camo who was showing them how to use a LAW effectively.....and all was right in the world.

I'm sure more will come back to me once I get home & get a real nights sleep.

Just got back from the 20-hour journey home to Canada and have to add my THANK YOU to everyone involved this past weekend! My only regret was not getting down in time for the clinic Friday afternoon.
The organization and the organizers, top notch! Thank you for providing such a well run tournament to end the season with!
The refs still haven't gotten enough credit for their part. I know we've thanked them all, but let's face it, it takes a special breed to run in front of the ropes of paint that we all shot to check players. They were on top of things at the beginning and stayed on top of things throughout the weekend. Great job guys!
Thank you as well to all the players that we both played against and hung around with. We may have gotten pasted on the field, but we still had fun, learned and enjoyed ourselves!

Oh, Jeff's shoulder (the guy who found out just how hard Oklahoma trees are) ended up with a broken shoulder. He's going to be ok , with only minor surgery needed to fix it.
Me on the other hand, I've been permenantly scarred by Jinx's shots to my skull. I may never fully recover... ok, maybe it's not quite that bad, but she did knock me half unconcious with a beautiful shot to the noggin! Good shooting!
That's it, time to recover from both the weekend and the long journey home!

I've been playing for longer than you've been alive.. and I still haven't been comitted!!

I have a Vice.... and I named her Miami....;)
Then I named my SP-1 'Sean'... get it?
