The players are not only paying to play paintball at Dodge City - but they're also being asked to pay (with labor and donations) to get it running again? Something doesn't seem right to me here. I'm not picking a fight with the players who are being nice and willing to help. All I'm saying is that the businesses involved here are for-profit and should have their insurance company or FEMA handle this one - not their paying customers. Ask yourself a question - would Target ask for donations to help them rebuild a store?
Does Target treat you like a family member? Does target host events that don't make a dime just because the customers ask for it? Does target help it's customers with time, equipment, and years of advice for free?
These are some of the things Dodge City has done for me. I'm sure others can name many many more.
I see your point. Why should a paying customer be asked to give time and a donation if they feel the need? My answer is simple. If it were my family's business that got messed up Craig would do the same for me.
If you feel that you would like to help. Please do. If not, you shouldn't feel that you have to.
I've been out of town for a few days, but I for sure will be out the weekend after D-day, and probably the weekend before.
Also, why the new user name? You have a vaild point, why hide?
