WTF are you doing to promote the sport?

Well let's hear it...WTF are you doing to promote the sport? And don't give me that B.S. about "Oh I play every weekend and compete in tournaments." Any ******* with a gun can do that...

What are you doing to help the sport grow? What are you doing to help give the sport a positive image so the rest of society learns to accept it into mainstream culture? What are you doing to unify paintballers across the nation and across the world?

I shoot "Play Paintball" into the side of a different house every week.

I also spend the extra money for staining paint to make sure the homeowner doesn't censor me.

I do nothing. I don't help at a field, I don't work at a shop, I don't spend all of my money locally, I look for deals online, I don't talk about it at school, and I couldn't care any less.

This promoting PB just sounds like more Evan Money bull****. Go ask him what you can do.

What am i doing to promote the sport? Well i'm a ref.. I try to make sure all of my customers have fun so they can come back. And i try to make sure little kids have the most fun possible. They are after all the future. I will help them out with any questions, or give them little tips about the fields and stuff. And i make sure there having fun and playing courses and gamestyles they want.

Normally when hanging around with friends, I self censor. It goes like...

"Dude that BLEEEEEEP is so hot!"
"BLEEEEEEEEP THIS!"

ya know??




Oh, i tell people how awesome it is and correct their wrong assumptions.

owned.

I constantly tell people that i play paintball and when they ask "wow you get to travel and play?" i tell them "yea" and explain how fun it is and that it's just not in the woods. After that, people always ask me questions; if it's a hard sport, how expensive is it, etc. and want to come play at our local field

I organize game days, I handicap myself when playing with noobs, I don't overshoot people. (unless they wipe, then it's a free-for-all.) I help noobs become better players. I'd rather play with noobs who want to learn than people who think they know it all...

I play pump, I lend guns, gear, tanks, hoppers, whatever to whoever needs them with the utmost trust in my fellow man, I run a field at my local church for the youth groups to play, I do photo work for said church paintball as well as tournaments, I help noobs, I ref at my local field, help out at my local shop, I donate old gear to people who need it, I give rides to those who need them, bring as many of my friends to the field as possible, I translate for my Deaf friend whenever he comes, same for any Deaf friends he brings, and on and on and on.

I think that all of these posts, except for Dr. Straightpride's, a few others, and my earlier one, are perfect examples of why this sport is going to meet its demise...
