Here's some new info ... Viper Venom is a Rookie/Amateur tournament. Here's how Bullseye Paintball Inc (the series' promoter) defines those terms.
Rookie: all team members are 19 or younger.
Amateur: All team members are 20 or older.
Bullseye wants to keep teams that compete professionally from going up against younger, less experienced teams.
Jim Durante of Bullseye said for the remaining eight or so events in the series. Participating teams earn points based on how they place in each tournament. The top 12 rookie and top 12 amateur teams will be invited to a final tournament Sept. 30 in Homestead, Fla.
Gold Rings for first place
Silver Rings for second place
Invitation to participate in next year's series for third place.
