Question University of Utah

I am off to University of Utah next year, and was wondering whether the school has any paintball clubs. I'm not looking to play competitively, just a group of people to meet up with and play on the weekends.

I go to the U, but I haven't found any sort of club. I usually just get a bunch of my friends and go to UXP on a Tuesday to save money.

U of U club?

I actually belong to a local team Salt City Vengeance and am attending the U. You don't have to commit to anything, but check out our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/SaltCityVengeance. I am thinking of starting a club up there because I don't believe there is a paintball club. Reply if you guys would be interested in that.

Thanks

I've played with a lot of the people from Vengeance on Monday nights. If you start a club or anything like that I would be interested, I just hope school and work won't cut down on my play time. :/

Awesome! I do have intentions of starting a club so I will keep you posted on that. We just can't start a club without at least 3 members. PM your info so I can contact you.

That's what I'm hoping to do is lay the path for the future. I would like to be able to hand the club over to someone when I graduate and let them continue to keep the club going.

So, once this fall semester starts I will know more about the financing. We have to wait for a couple weeks before we can request the actual funding. Once that is done and taken care of I will post more about it. As of right now it's just a waiting game.

I started a paintball club at the University of Utah a few years ago called University United Paintball. We'd play every week either addicts, uxp, or the retribution woodsball field in Bountiful. Most the members graduated and it quickly died.

I'd be totally interested in another paintball club.

The financial side of things won't be complete until the 2nd or 3rd week of October where they will let us know how much money they are allowing for us to spend. As for now I will keep you posted.

Nothing really came of this club because they shot down the funding for it. They told me at the time that they won't pay for rentals of weapons (guns) and that the paintballs are considered to be ammunition so this kind of dissolved. If you are interested in playing paintball let me know I can help put you through to the right people if you don't know anyone around here.

Hmm, could always just say it is the school team and have it be unofficial. They wouldn't be interested in having it be official if funding only went to tournament fees? Not like the school would put up enough cash to cover anything beyond that anyways.

Going down to Provo Pickup tomorrow

I spoke with the captain of the BYU team a few weeks back, they pitched the club as being fully self funded and are only seeking permission to utilize the school's name. The goal then is to develop the team's reputation by playing tournaments and then after successfully establishing a reputation seek out potential school funding.
