i understand alcohol was involved..

from propaintball.com
Hollywood HK was rumored to have been banned from the NPPL. While we are not exactly sure what transpired, we do know that the PBFashion/HK booth was shut down at HB due to alcohol. on the other hand will be running their Crash at the Coast clinic and considering their options.

Kind of ridiculous considering that most people do drink at these events and have been since the beginning. World cup back in the early 2000's vendors would have frozen margarita machines among other liquid refreshments. I distinctly recall one at the diablo area and the JT area, let alone the full bar inside the National trailer. It doesn't make sense to me in these times to ban a team / vendor who pay good money to attend an event and promote their products when everyone else is doing the exact same thing.

Since this occurred at HB, I believe there is a "no drinking on the beach" policy. California laws in effect. idk really. but they are lucky they werent fined by the city as well or locked up. too bad about the ban tho.

If thats is the case then they should not have had beer in the VIP area. Even though it was yuck it was still beer.

HK/PB Fashion tends to have created an image for themselves as a bunch of college aged Cali kids who do nothing but party and get ****faced. So i'm sure if it was alcohol related it wasn't just a casual beer or 2.

Nobody got arrested or ticketed, so that is all speculation. Its just that anyone that is seen drinking at the event is automatically associated with HK/Pbfashion and that's unfair profiling. Whats it to say it wasn't a Nppl employee with a beer in the registration tent covered with a paper towel that caused the issue. So than rather than the organizers taking a hit, they blame HK/Pbfasion.

yea i like the HK since 02 lol. im sure he is pretty "agg" also.

i was at HB, they (HK/PB Fashion) was told a few time by law enforcement to not bring any beer on to the beach. even whats his name that looks like a bum ( long dirty hair and mustache) that plays for HK was yelling at some of the guys to stop being stupid or they were going to get shut down.

HK was a good team way back in the day when it first was up and coming. now when i hear or think of HK, i just think of how bad of a image it is for paintball

Here is the run down on what happened.

We had to leave venue due to people drinking around our booth. NONE of which were employees or team members. We do know alot of people so everyone comes to our booth to hang out and catch up tell war stories, all that good stuff.

So I guess the cops were scoping us out and saw the people drinking near our booth, sitting on one of those little walls that border the boardwalk. They roll into our booth and search it for alcohol, find NOTHING, we were being on point and made sure not to mess around as we have already been warned about the no alcohol on the beach rule. Yet they still tell the NPPL to shut us down.

When we spoke to Chuck and other head members of the NPPL they informed us that we were being shut down due to alcohol and being guilty by assosiation (meaning we were guilty because people we know were drinking by the booth on the side). That to me sounds crazy. So your telling me if I have a beer and im posted up by another random vendor that they are going to get shut down??

And here is the kicker....when we had argued that it is not fair that we get shut down when there was never any alcohol of any sort found in our booth. The NPPL tells us that there were 3 other booths that they actually DID find alcohol and that they were all going to be shut down too. Well guess what. We roll up Sunday and all 3 of the vendors that they actually really did find alcohol in were up and running like nothing happened. The NPPL told us over and over that there was nothing they could do, that this was word from the city....well then how is it that miraculously nothing happens to the vendors that really did get caught?? .

So how is it again that we are bad for paintball and that we are so horrible? We did nothing wrong. We may act crazy and cause a scene, but is it so bad to actually have fun and enjoy yourself at a paintball event....an "extreme" sporting event. What are we supposed to be, all droids that have no emotion, only fork over money to the big companies

Were not trying to get any one in trouble or bring anyone down with us, or any of that. We just want fairness, and to not be targeted since we appear to be "punk kids". We are people trying to spread and grow the sport just like anyone else

I guess the choice of how you want to live your life is yours, but don't judge if you don't know.

HHH

Well said… I mean a lot of these fans/supporters/army members/haters need to realize how political paintball really is. These larger companies DO NOT want to see the smaller companies grow. Believe it or not but HK is actually looked at as a threat to some. Chuck Hench shutting us down at NPPL HB might not of been 100% his choice. He might have been getting pressure from other platinum sponsors or vendors in the area…. Which is understandable but we will make it known when you screw us over that bad. Every man in this world has a breaking point. We do good business and completely revamped the paintball division of Hk Army. Myself, Brandon Fort and Mark Kressin were not going to let the army die due to bad decision other members made in the past. Paintball made HK Army what it is today and we will never forget that and continue to carter to you guys over anything else.

HK ARMY ….. STRONG!
