We survived Punta Gorda - After being the last team to be assimilated, we assisted the Yellow Team to become the winners of "RISK"

G-UNIT - Cleaned up

CENTURIONS - Dished it out

TEAM BACKLASH - Brought it all together


paintballerz.com put it all together, THANK YOU!


Next time, I'll read the rulebook first. That RISK game had many rules related to the gameplay and point scoring system.

More than I cared for.

Help Save Paintball in California *Updated*
*Updated June 4th, 2011*


A Message from the California Paintball Safety Coalition

Dear Paintball Manufactures, operators, and enthusiasts

As you may or may not know California State government is looking to pass a new law that will affect paintball in California. Bill SB798 is intended to eliminate an exemption to the current “imitation firearms” law. Currently this exemption allows the Airsoft, BB, and Paintball industry to manufacture black markers/guns that could be considered “look-a-like” firearms; and depending who you talk to, anything that is black with a barrel is a “look-a-like” firearm. A small group of manufactures and operators have become aware of the law and have pulled together to begin fighting the passage of the law or having it amended to exclude paintball from Bill SB798.

Current Working Group:

The current industry group has formed into the California Paintball Safety Coalition (CPSC), which includes following companies: KEE Action Sports, Tippmann, DYE, Kingman, Giant Paintball/Hollywood Sports, and Mercury Public Affairs. Mercury is an outside lobbying firm that the group has retained to help us navigate our complex political system. The owners, CEO’s, and senior executives of the group are all dedicated to making sure paintball is protected and continues to be played in the exciting manner we have all come to love. Add your own business name to the bottom of this letter to show your support and then please forward this letter on.


We need your help

In order for our voice to be heard we need to take the following actions together: first we have developed two generic letters that you as a paintball operator or player can fill out and send into your local representative and state senator. We also have an active Facebook page “Save California Paintball” please become a friend and pass the link to other players and operators. Also on this page is information on how to find your local representative to mail the letter to as well as a link to the actual bill. The links and info will also be available on the websites of each of the paintball companies listed above. We are also creating posters and handouts that will be available to all California paintball businesses for display.

Is this a real threat?

The answer is yes. The bill has been fast tracked through multiple levels of state legislature and is preparing to go up for a vote on June 14th. Once it passes there will be no going back and a new era of recession will hit both industries, which is why we must issue a call to action to players and industry members alike.


What not to do

It is important that we conduct ourselves in a professional manner as we deal with this issue. This is why we have gone to great lengths to create a form letter for all parties which everyone can use. Our message must be clear and concise if it is to be effective. We are portraying paintball as a recreational game and a sport in order to make sure we have a strong position that the political system can stand behind.

• Facebook Link: http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/S...llinCalifornia
• Letter Template (Player) Link http://bit.ly/BillSB798FormLetter


Sincerely,

Author Chang (Kingman Corp.), Billy Ceranski (KEE Action Sports), Dave DeHaan (DYE Precision), Dennis Bukowski & Giovanni D’Egidio (SC Village, Hollywood Sports Park, California Paintball Park, Giant Paintball Alpine and Giant Paintball Lakeside), Howard Kosick (Tippmann Inc.), John Robinson (KEE Action Sports)

*Original Article*


The future of California paintball and the entire paintball industry in general is potentially in limbo now that the California Legislative is trying to pass Bill 798 which calls for imitation firearms, a classification which would include paintball markers, to be brightly colored (i.e., orange) in order to distinguish them from real firearms. The bill has already been approved and pass along through multiple levels of legislation, and industry leaders from across the world are asking for the entire paintball community to come together to help make sure that this bill does not come to pass.


A Facebook page titled "Save Paintball in California" has been setup and endorsed by over a dozen of the top industry members. Here is a few of the statements that can be found on the Facebook page.
<="" font="" face="Arial" size="2" color="#000000">
<="" font="" face="Arial" size="2" color="#000000">
"This is a serious concern to the paintball industry which could require all paintball markers in speedball and scenario play to be painted a bright color. Help stop this legislation and write to your California senator or assembly member and post a letter on the Save Paintball in California Fan Page."

I didn't know we had a thread.

Probably because it's in the Florida thread.

Also, I just realized I probably created a necro post... my bad
