Fellow paintballer players
Ok, this is out of Character for me, but September tenth is a weekend that some of us have free because a game was going to be played.
Hurricane Katrina has hit the poorest people in the country.
This isn't an NASPBL thing, this is a paintballer seeing it's time to help.
I am going to ask for volunteers and people to donate clothing, bottled water and blankets to the people of Louisiana and Mississipi and Alabama. I am also going to ask for paintball fields to accept the donations of clothing, food and water, basic hygeine kit within pick up distance to the I-95 Corridor to accept those donations.
We'll leave on Friday night 9/9/05, and pick up as much as we can along the way. Some of us have SUV's, some of us have trucks. We can make a difference here.
Some of us are good cooks, we all have radios and the correct clothing for this kind of disaster.
These people need help, and we can give that help as paintball players.
This is in the concept phase, we'll have to go balls to the wall to do it.
If you are a field owner, or know a field owner that is willing to take donations, please let me know.
Pass on the word and help those who had little, and are now left with nothing.
I need people willing to make the 20 hour drive in shifts. We'd be back late on Sunday.
Who is with me?
