I want to put a team together to play PSP in Jersey. Depending on the players ranking will determin the division we play. Pass the word and lets do this and show that the military can get down. The weekend of July 15th is when I would like to put a tryout on.
It is good to see you still kicking around this idea. Focus on Active Duty only right now any strap hangers (Retirees, Family Members, DA Civilians) will only muck up your progress. After you get your team established you may be able to include them in yourworks. I know the Drum Sports Director at MWR told me that they could only pay for the active duty folks hotels and entry costs when they were trying to get me to coach a Drum team.
The High Rollers are still a mainly Soldier team we do have a few Family members on our team and me (the Retiree/DA Civilian). MWR helps us out with field time and air (unofficially) because we volunteer coach their youth services program and usually Ref their events (few and far between).
Sam at the 2ID team and 7th Element is a great guy to know and has helped us out in the past with discounts on boards but other than that we pretty much pay our own way through.
I am still prepping the battlefield up at Drum for bigger and better things to come in paintball.
Good luck with everything,
Edit: Get the Installation Safety Office onboard with this early. Most Commanders are going to look for a Risk Assessment in the package somewhere, it is easier to get this knocked out first and that way you can show them you are thinking outside the box.
