Rebuild Dodge City day

Okay guys. It’s time to give something back. I want to organize a Dodge City cleanup day. I am going to talk to Craig soon, but I imagine he needs some help cleaning up debris, making burn piles, trimming trees, ect. We are probably going to need rakes, chain saws, and most other outdoor power equipment. Does anyone have access to a front end loader? Not sure if we’ll need it, but it’s always good to have around. I’ll supply water and Gatorade for everyone working. You will need to bring any tools you think we might need, fuel, gas cards, food for yourself, food for others, closed toed shoes, and work gloves.
The first day I can be there is 6/18 or 6/19. If this works for you guys post up and we’ll make it happen. If you can think of anything I’ve missed let me know as well.

Also, no one needs to wait on me. If you have time now please go out and do what you can. Ryan from Avid is going out today and will be there for most of the rest of the week. I'm going after work some this week too. Even a few hours of help is huge right now. If you have any questions please post up here.

We have plenty of chain saws, we really need people who have trailers and trucks. There is a ton of stuff in the creek that needs to be pulled out. The field will be operational this weekend!! Reg and his crew have been working their butts off!

I find it offensive that a for-profit business is accepting donations to help rebuild. Has anyone from Dodge City contacted their insurance agent or FEMA? I can't believe that the longest running paintball field in the OKC area would ask players to bear their burden. 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?

Target isn't a small business owned & operated by someone players know personally.
You must either be associated with another field or just trying to start problems. Us real players are a close group of friends who have known each other over years and years. Get lost.

Im pretty sure Jeremy made this thread because he cares about these people and keeping the sport alive in Oklahoma. This isnt about DC taking advantage of the customer, this is about the customer/competition wanting to better paintball in Oklahoma and keep it alive.

The people who are involved in Oklahoma paintball love the sport. They understand for it to get better, everyone has to help. This goes for every aspect of the game. There is nothing offensive here. Just Oklahoma paintball ay its best.

The first game I went to at Dodge City was a toys for tots game. No one is in paintball for the profit.

Just don't post again. How did FEMA do with hurricane Katrina...it'd be ten years before dc would even be helped by FEMA

I don't believe the federal government cares that a paintball field was plowed.
