Well, id like to help you, but creating Scenario ideas is what I get paid for. Best suggestion would be to either play some local events so you get a better grasp on how to run a successful event, search the net and look at other promoters themes that they have used, or, (Saved the best for last) hire my company, WWW.SPLATTERZONEPAINTBALL.NET
, to run the event.
In order to run a very successful event, it takes ALOT of time (Anywhere from 4 months to two years) to set and organize, ALOT of money to create and build props, and ALOT of money to promote each event. I put a minimum of 4 months into each all day event we run, and I dont sleep at all the 7 days before an event because of all the work that needs to be done.
These events are not the HUGE money makers that everyone thinks they are. Yes, alot of money is made. And yes, most of that money goes right back into the overhead created from the event. You wont make a profit until you get at least 100+ players at your field. And just a note, promoters consider games like this as "BIG GAMES", which means that its created by employees and not run by an outside promoter. This does tend to hurt attendance at events.
Just my two cents.
