I know there's a small but vocal (very, very vocal) group of pump players here. I saw a post elsewhere that pbpumpshop.com, a website/machinist focused on pump players is looking to sponsor some pump teams.

Here's the text from the original post:
Teams must regularly play local and regional tournaments. Bigger tourneys like OSC/NPPL is a plus.
I need team members that are actively involved in all the major forums and will promote my site every chance available.

In return, I will provide all items on my site at cost. Also willing to help with paint at events. Other details can be discussed privately.

If you or your team is interested, have the captain PM me or email at sales@pbpumpshop.com

Thought some of you might be interested.

Online store run by a guy who has made quite a number of pump parts himself.

Holy ****! Doing this for sure! We need a real sponsor and we do NPPL, NPL, NYPL, and do Scenario events at GRC (we've got a 24 hour one coming up). God we could use this right now.

I wish there were more pump teams in general around here. We're the only ones in the greater Rochester area. There is Bay City... but they're over near Buffalo.

We're trying to talk to the owner of the field I manager at to see if we can get a special "Pump Players Night (PPN)" going. The problem is, pump players lower business due to the lack of need for paint. I would have to suggest to him to raise the entry fee to about $30, that way he's not losing much money.

The problem is, getting people to want to play for $30 entry, on top of paint costs. Most pump players are more on the conservative side of spending, but I personally can say that I would be willing to pay that much to actually play with other pumpers.

I know how you feel, everyone here thinks its no fun :(

I honestly feel that those that feel pump is no fun are the ones that don't have the skill to go along with it. They see it as too hard and think it's impossible, therefore they don't want to practice at it and get better. Sure, it's a little frustrating.... but in all honesty, I think 90% of the people you ask, that have played with a pump, will tell you that it's more fun, if not as much fun, as playing semi.
