Cleaning crew = thieves

Sunday at the tournament I went to watch my team play a game and came back to the staging area only to find my marker with tank and all completely missing. While I was walking around searching for it one of my teammates thought he saw it go by in a cleaning crew golf cart. Sure enough I found it in the golf cart. The driver wasn't around so I just told the NPPL booth about it. Just a warning to make sure you watch your stuff.

I'm glad you got your stuff back, but at the same time remember that paintball is a sport full of stupid little kids. Leave your stuff unattended, and it's almost guaranteed to be stolen.

Do not make stereotyping racist comments unless you wish to be banned. Only warning.

Its seems like the the people in the cleaning crew aren't necessaily the richest people around and so the posibilty that they would look for alturnitive ways to scrape together more money isn't unreasonable. Just like nearly anyone making <$10 a hour

if this is considered sterotyping then I'll edit

a freind of mine got his ST DM4 stolen in denver...it sucks. NPPL and PSP should set out stings where they leave guns unatended and they watch out for who ever trys to take it. thats the only way IMO they can decrease the amount of markers stolen. Also when i was in denver i noticed people walking around the staging area that shouldnt of been their...

Here's a crazy thought. WATCH YOUR STUFF, I know the team I was helping out was sure to leave someone to watch the stuff for every game. I know it's bad that you have to, but you have to realize that the nppl was handing out pit passes like water. Also I can't tell you how many kids I saw running around the staging area with no bands.

nothing beats philly... that **** was bad... there it wasn't the paintballers that you had to worry about it was the locals walking through...

i would've waited at the cart and beat the **** out of the guy... guy steals your gun the least you could do is replace his teeth with some brass..

I bet water was more expensive.

But IMO they shuld have a place you can leave your marker and get a ticket to get it back.

We do that at the ice rink I wrok at when their is a rave on. we take anything they want to leave behind, attach a ticket, give them the other side and they can come get it whenever with the ticket. Costs $2 but to protect your invstment I'd say its worth it

Yeah but it's going to take a lot of security and promotion by the NPPL before players start leaving hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of equipment all in one area.

You don't, you are welcome to go to other forums that allow such posts and indulge yourself as much as you like.

Yes I do. He was discriminating on them because they were Mexican.
