I have a party of 11-12 people going Sunday and called 5 days ahead to leave the $150 deposit. I read and was told that the whole amount had to be paid by the Friday before. I was unable to get all the funds that fast from everyone and asked if we could still receive the party discount if I put the $150 deposit down. I was denied. I asked for any sort of small discount since 11-12 people are coming and was denied. Price goes from $45 up to $58. Half the group doesnt mind, but the other half are college kids looking for a new hobby.

I still want to go, but my whole party is ready to play somewhere else for cheaper. Weak. I really thought the $150 deposit would be enough to secure.

I feel your pain. Getting people to pony up money for paintball seems like asking for donations for ISIS sometimes.
But fields (not just Explosion) set pricing based on their business model. It's a business and businesses have to make money to survive.
With staffing primarily based on private games fields need to have some sort of cut off so they can get schedules to employees in a timely manner.
Paint and food are purchased based on expected turnout & refs and pro shops are staffed based on private game reservations and expected weather.
Without paying in full they don't know for certain you are coming. And yes groups do abandon deposits and never show up. And now the field is sitting on an employee with no work and additional perishable products.
Money needs to be made or they might as well shutter the doors.

I totally get it being a business owner myself, I suppose I assumed that the $150 would cover a no show group of 11 people. No worries though, I'm talking them into still going as we speak. Maybe they will pony up! (I loved your analogy)

This is a public service announcement from Paintball Explosion.

Our indoor is NOT closing.

Thursday nights are still going strong (last week was awesome) and we will continue to be the only indoor field w/o post all over the place.

See you all soon
