Possible event for families in CT shooting?

I am curious to see how much interest there would be by other players to possibly do an event to raise money for the families of those killed in the CT school shooting? I PMed Lori about possibly doing something..got no response back. I know this hit close to home for me and I would love to help out anyway possible. I know a lot of New England players are from CT as well. Post here and give me your thoughts about this!

I would love to have enough interest in this to make something happen!

That sounds like a great idea. I'd love to be apart of it. I can work something out at a field in CT if you like.

I'd like to see all the fields in CT do something and donate to the charity. Maybe staggered events or a portion of sales, I know each field has different logistics on what they can and can not do. But whatever works at this point. Maybe even just being a direct donation center so even if you just need a fill you can drop an extra dollar or two into a donation jar while you're at the shop/field.

Billy, I would think it would get the highest out come being at a central location in mass somewhere. Didn't get a responce from Lori though so you're offer probly would be very benificial! I don't know if these parents know about our community at all but it would be nice to show them were not just running around shooting people, could be very beneficial to the sport! I will deffinetly be in contact with you about this!

Atticus..I don't have anything in particular in mind. Just would be nice to have everyone get together for a great cause, something like the hurricane sandy thing everyone is doing! Possibly get some memorial jerseys made up.

Let me know what you guys think! It's pretty awesome to have interest from players like Billy that in itself makes things a lot easier! Thanks guy's!

I think, optimally, having several events with Billy and others in different areas would be the best option. Of course scheduling is a big factor in that on the fields part as well as the people doing it to determine what is viable.
I would be happy to do another event with Billy as I did a clinic with him and Keith Devit several years ago and learned quite a bit.

I would be happy with anything! BP is doing a clinic sometime in january. ith one already happening im not sure if people could afford unless the price can be reasonable. I honestly was just thinking everyone gets together at the same place and day and just balls to.help the families.

Pug, you probly wont be around. This doesn't have to be just a new england thing. Set something up in washington!

It would be nice to try to get some kind of coverage on this as well from the media...I'll see if I can try to pull some strings at ESPN...though I can't promise anything.

Not to be a downer, and not that I'm opposed to running fund raisers at a field, but after a school SHOOTING, a fundraiser held at a SHOOTING sport facility may be viewed by some as being in poor taste. You know, and I know, paintball's not about that, but to the rest of the world it isn't so clear. We should all be about supporting those who lost so much, not about 'setting the record straight' on the sport.

Just my pov.

Jeff is correct... After reading his post and thinking about it do we as a paintball community should help and get the word out we are helping, but should do it in a way that does not involve guns.. How do we do it, idk.. But myself my team will help in any way possible...

This is a great idea to be honest! Yea, I understand the POV that it is about shooting people with paint, but they will respect the donations!

This could be something huge guys! I'm in MI, and the news has been strait about new town! This could be huge for the paintball community! If you guys are serious, get pro players so more people can attend! Try and see it a company will
Sponsor the event!

No, their problem is that someone just murdered their children.

This isn't about you or making you feel good or even doing something that could be "very beneficial to the sport!". This is about supporting families who just suffered the greatest tragedy imaginable, about supporting a community that has been devastated. Maybe it hurts to hear that you efforts, while well intentioned, won't help, but they won't.

The money you might raise... $500? $5000 (you won't raise $5000), what is that going to do? Will it make one mother forget the loss of her child? No, it won't. Asking them to 'respect the effort' is insensitive and naive.

If you want to help those families, running fund raisers at businesses where people run around shooting each other isn't the way.
If you want to raise money, wait a few months.
If you want to help paintball, don't bring it into the public eye right now. It will cause more harm than help.

You will NOT help families, or paintball, by doing this.

But that's all I'm going to say on the matter. Do whatever you want.
