Paintball Powerpoint

I was wondering if anybody'd made a powerpoint that just introduces the sport, its history, the types of paintball etc. Like something informational. I was thinking about making one for the hell of it and could use some help.

So if someone hasnt, what are some things i should included?

thanks!

The biggest thing is safety. Talk about all the safety gear we use such as masks and all the pads used. Try and find some of the statistics that say that paintball is safer then golf and a lot of the other sports millions play. I'm sure if you google it, you should be able to find something. Also talk about how its not all about a whole bunch of war craving maniacs pretending they are soldiers at war killing people. Thats a lot of what people think thats never played the game. Talk about all the good things about it when it comes to groups of people getting together such as team work and good sportmanship. Show some of the newer markers and show how far they came from when it all started. I'm sure if you go to the paintball magazines websites, you can find all kinds of pictures to use.

Its a good idea. I hope it turns out well.

that injury stats list is very unverified, i was looking into it for a report I was presenting to the chief of police of my university police department so we could play on campus.

i found a bunch of other statictics but none that matched that list.

if you want actual government verified data, look up the NEISS
i forgot what it stands for but its what the gov uses for it's data, and if you look up the stats there paintball is listed in with bb gun games and "non-powder projectiles" or something like that.


short story- those stats are fine for a comp class are fine who cares, but if you want a more official report look into the NEISS

I made one earlier this year bc me and some friends were trying to get a paintball club at school(it got shot down). Talk alot about safety and the different variations. There are endless possibilities.
