Is there a page or site about Bob out there? He doesn't have a Wikipedia entry (although Noel Gaines does) and Bob's own site is actually pretty thin on bio details and whatnot.

I know there was a book or two, but has anyone collected anything online?

I recall reading a magazine article, about a million years ago, that described- kinda vaguely- how Bob went to... I think it was Croasman? And presented his idea for a "plastic" gun (what would become the Splatmaster.) Supposedly Crosman (if it was them) semi-officially giggled a bit and said nobody would want or buy a plastic pellet gun.

Are stories like that online, anywhere?

Doc.

if there ever was sticky, that page or article would deserve a sticky

In honor of Bob Gurnsey, I think it would be great if everyone who can gift a field fee for a new player this weekend.

Help grow the gift he gave us in his name. Who's with me?

We would like to sincerely Thank everyone that came to Bob's Celebration of Life today. It was a hard day, your support helped us push through.
"You know, sometimes it's not the quantity but the quality" Debra your presence was just amazing, thank you for attending. Bea you are so sweet and thank you for driving up. Paul, Tommy thank you for driving over as well... Wayne & Jackie thank you for everything! The field staff, you are all awesome! We were very touched by the kids waiting to play paintball and weren't there for the celebration but to just play. . They were so patient, respectful, and actually had kind words to say to us personally afterwords. We've got some good future ballers in them. They will go home and talk to their parents, family & friends about attending The Founding Father of Paintball's Celebration of life they all learned a lot of history today and I am sure it will be a forever lasting memory for all of them. That's pretty cool in my book.

We was touched by everyone's story. You all make paintball what it is and what is should be.. From the bottom our hearts we thank you!��
Thank you Thomas for videoing for us and taking pictures, meant a lot!

Tina, Lori Gurnsey

Someone brought up Bob a few days ago. He was truly a great guy that helped launch this game.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
