Wheelchair Airball Game!

For the first time in Portugal a whellchair paintball game was organized by the Blue Falcon Squadron paintball team.

It was a different and amazing day in which we were able to put a smile in the face of people who usually don't have many reasons to do so.

In the end of the day raffles were drawn to raise money for the ASBHIP institution by giving away some Guerrila Air products!

Here's a video of the day.

The initial text translation:
"Initiatives like this allow the lives of people with disabilities to be painted of various colors, giving them in these moments, the opportunity to understand and impart the feeling that their life is not only based on their condition, but people who are able to perform things I never imagined possible to begin with."

It really was a fantastic day! To be able to put a smile in face of those kids is something that will always be with me.

It was a lot easier than most people think all it took was to get in touch with an association, show them our idea, set a date and organize everything with our local field!

OK...maybe its just me....but can anyone else see this actually working out on a regular basis? hear me out for a sec

Have a set of guys willing to "aid the player" (pushing them/ helping out in anyway. and the player can only be out if they are hit. not the "Aid".

Idk maybe its just me but almost like a team system within a paintball team so everyone can enjoy the sport.

This could happen. The rules had to be changed but it could be a reality!
