Angry My team was disbanded today. :/

Hey guys, I know you probably don't want to hear my sob story about how my team was shut down today, but I really just need some advice. We were located in southern Pennsylvania, and the closest field to us (30 mins) closed down then end of last season. We were going to try to stay together, and play an EPL event. People on the team didn't want to put the time, or the money into this sport, and to get better, that is required. I love paintball with a passion. I was willing to give things up, so that I could play. I think that the others didn't feel the same way that I did about this sport, and they though of it more as a pastime. The owner of the team and I put so much time, money and effort into this. We acquired a few decent sponsorships, some air bunkers, and practiced on a weekly basis. I'm sad to see that be all thrown away. I had initially thought about quitting the sport, but I don't feel as if I should. The closest field is about an hour away now, and I'm only 17 years old, with a job at Mcdonalds. I understand that it is extremely hard to be a tourney baller, while also being a budget baller, but we pulled it off last season. If there is any teams near the Chambersburg, Pennsylvania area, let me know. Me and a friend would like to try out.

You have a lot of time ahead of you man. Save up some dough, buy a bucket of a car. Throw some buddys in it and drive an hour to play paintball. You'll be fine.

Good luck
