Scenarios are a good place to look for paintball related companies. At a lot of scenarios (at all of mine here in SE Texas actually) companies send reps to kind of be a public face of the company. At my field the owner of Save Phace comes out regularly to sell stuff and shoot the **** with the people there and thats how we picked them up as a sponsor.
Dont be afraid to go up and talk to people AND remember to be persistent. Most people will view that as motivation and it will make them more likely to help you out. If they say no to sponsorships ask them if they would be willing to give you some hats, t-shirts, keychains, posters, bumper stickers, etc to hand out at the next big game with some kind of promo on them so they will be able to see just how much business you will be able to bring them. Then maybe in a few months when a bunch of people have come in using your code they will be a little more likely to help you out because they know it is mutually beneficial.
