You could always do what druid said where kilts out to the field and bring your A game also and you would probably be noticed. And it depends how good your A game is...

win the tourney!
haha but work hard, act like a team. be good sports, have a little banner with your team name and a table, if they allow that.
talk to the owners, they sometimes tell you if a sponsored team is there, or potential sponsors.
talk to the teams, be nice, dont be dumb. play by the rules.

Have a pamphlet(sp?) ready for sponsors

You don't have to have banners or uniforms with your team name on it to get recognized, although it does help. Here's the key:




Practice. Practice. Practice. Practice. When you finish with that, practice some more.

Seriously, practice, then show up to the tournament ready to play. As far as being recognized, if you win, you will be. Be respectable, play clean and win. If you aren't respectable (or respectful) you'll be just like the hundreds of other teams that get put together, then fall apart within two months. No one will care about you one way or the other. You play clean, people will notice.

Be good sports as well. Shake hands and congratulate or console the other team. Say "Good game!" no matter what - professional athletes do it, so can you. Besides, it looks good and makes you feel good. If you win when you play clean, SPONSORS and people will notice.

Practice with teams that are better than you. Watch them, and them do what they do. Just because you can beat up the rec kids at your field doesn't mean you can beat up anyone else in the same boat as you. You need that experience against people better than you.

Know your guns, so if they break down, you can fix them quickly and correctly and be ready for the next game. So many people's guns break down in their first tournament, then they spend an hour trying to figure out the problem. That's the one headache that plagued me the most - when my teammates didn't know how to fix their own guns - it takes away from the discussion of what happened in the last game, takes away the time to relax and get ready for the next one, and a lot of times, teams actually get disqualified because they can't get to the chrono in time.

Finally, to get recognized - you have to PRACTICE and WIN...
