High School Paintball

Hi everyone, I know I have relatively few posts here at pbnation, but I assure you what follows is in no way meant as spam.

I am a High School Teacher in Chicago. I have recently started an "officially unofficial" club at my school. It has been quite successful with about 25-30 active members in our first 3 outings. We have even had a few, limited, sponsorship offers.

Anyways this recent success has convinced me to expand my efforts, and assist other students trying to start clubs. I strongly feel that this is the future of paintball, and can also strengthen student relationships with their respective schools. I am now talking with a few other schools in the Chicagoland area, in hopes of forming a loose "aliance" / club if you will to reduce prices and increase the regularity of our play.

To do this I have created two things:
1) A facebook group named (uncreatively) High School Paintball. You can find it here http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=...127007810&ap=1

2) A blog by the same name here : highschoolpaintball.blogspot.com

Please come check them out and offer any constructive criticism that you have. It will be highly appreciated. Any questions you have please don't hesitate to ask! If you find the information useful all I ask is that you tell your friends about the group and blog.

Good luck!
Maybe don't start off your pitch as negative as you did your post just now. After the first sentence I was expecting something awful to come lol!

I suppose, but I didn't want to start off with a misunderstanding here. For what I'm doing, I think it is pretty important to start off on the right foot...

sounds pretty awesome. Im a highschool student myself, and would love to have a "unofficial" club for it at my school. Of course it will never be able to be a real club in highschool because it promotes violence and shooting blah blah all that crap. Alas, Ill have to stick to ultimate frisbee and play paintball silently on sundays
