  1. Myself and a couple of friends were thinking about coming to the event this event. I was wondering if there is anything i need to know before we reserve hotels and make the drive down? Is there somewhere i can see basic info for spectators? is there an entry fee to just watch? Do we need to register saying were coming?

    • This event is open and free to the public! Come and enjoy the trade show where you can shop for paintball products, buy food and drinks and get autographs from the Pro teams. You can also enjoy free seating in the grandstands on the pro field! Here is a basic timeline:
