It is not about the flights....
5 PSP events = 4 days of paintball x 5 + 2 days for WC and Chicago
2 days of each even I must take off work, plus the extra 2 for WC and Chicago. That makes 12 days that I have to request off work to play all 5 PSP events. I don't know about you, but most young working professionals only get 2 weeks vacation, plus 3 sicks days and normally 2 flex days. Total of 15 days.
That would only leave me with 3 days for the entire year to take off.... No vacation, no weddings, no being sick, no drinking to much on a Sunday football night and not wanting to go to work....
You see what i am getting at here? The earlier you give me the dates, the more likely it will be for me to talk to my boss and possibly work it out so I can have a few extra days or maybe not use all my paid vacation days up right away.
Either way release the damn dates, and stop making excuses or trying to justify it.
