    TBH, there was nothing wrong with the show ground at Ardingly imho, other than it wasn't central London for those that want to play in the morning and see big ben in the afternoon.

    I liked it in the country at Ardingly. Some lovely country pubs, with good pulled ales, good food and dogs allowed to hang out outside. It was further away than Basildon was from pubs/hotels etc.

    I had no issues with Basildon either, 5 min from the hotel to the field, all grass, tons of space, loads of restaurants and clubs/bars. It was cheap and easy to get to.

    I've been singing the praises of Ardingly as I've been a showground regular for years .But now it's got another plus point ,it's actually in this country!! Just as well other sports don't try and ruin paintball ,it's doing a grand job all on it's own .;)

    I remember one year they held a leg in Belgium, bigged it up massively before hand, and when we arrived it was basically a farmer's ploughed field.

    History always repeats itself.

    I remember that too, almost, we never actually made it to that event, which was probably a blessing. Didn't the whole site get locked down for hours too while there was a cycle race on the roads outside?

    Just got the usual pre-event email from NXL for Vegas. As a result it occurred to me, how much are they going to charge for entry into the pro field grandstands in Europe?

    If they want the sport to grow they'd make it free to watch in the grandstands.
    I watched a dad and 2-3 kids looking to try and watch the pro field on Sunday in Chantilly, they wanted 5 euro or something per ticket...insane.

    World Cup Paris was the only Mills event that charged for grandstand seats as far as I know, other events were free apart from a small block of VIP/owner seats.
