PSP Season Opener on Galveston Island

March 11 – 13, 2011

Gulf-front condos for 6 people at $92 per night!

PSP Events and the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau are pleased to invite you to the 2011 PSP season opener, which will be held during spring break March 11 – 13 in Galveston Island, Texas! (Watch live webcams of the area now! http://www.galveston.com/webcams/ )

Galveston Island is a popular weekend resort town 40 miles south of Houston, Texas with a beautiful 32-mile stretch of beaches and seawall along the Gulf of Mexico. A tourist’s dream, there’s surfing, restaurants, shops, attractions, bars, music, fishing, water parks, golfing and resorts for all ages. March is a beautiful time to spend on the island – with its warm weather in the low 70’s and limited rainfall – it’s been a draw to spring breakers for years! Very excited about having the PSP event held during the same time as Spring Break, the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau is giving each attendee a “Smart Card’ for discounts to stores, bars, shops and restaurants! Hotels, airlines and rental car agencies are also offering discounts to make sure this trip is not only enjoyable, but affordable as well!

PSP has wanted to return to the great state of Texas for some time. Finding the right partnering city and venue was key in making this event possible. Held at Galveston Island Paintball, a new park located just one block off the water in the heart of the island, the event will be able to hold up to 6 grass fields of play along with paintball’s best trade show from Friday – Sunday (March 11 – 13, 2011). The event and its hotels are just minutes from all the favorite island attractions, restaurants and shopping.

Registration for this event will be opening soon, but don’t hesitate to book your trip by taking advantage of the following travel discounts:

No.

I grew up in New Orleans.

New Orleans is the ****tiest place I have ever lived in. It's the worst city I have ever stepped foot in. It's filled to the brim with the most racist, ungrateful, ignorant, ridiculous "citizens" ever. It's filled with corruption, nasty humidity, and ****.

The only thing that's good is the bread pudding, cheap liquor, and seafood.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
