May 1st is World Paintball Day

One of the best people in the paintball industry sent me this today. I think after this last crazy year, we all should find ways to come together, even if it's just online.

"Let’s make the first of May, the first of many, as we celebrate Paintball together, with World Paintball Day.

To many, Paintball is so much more than just a hobby, or simply something to do at the weekend. It is a way to express yourself. A way to relieve stress and a way to connect with your friends, family or even team mates. It is a true escape from the day-to-day humdrum and as global lockdowns are slowly lifting, the desire and necessity to play Paintball again is huge.

So we urge you, tell the world your Paintball stories. Let people know why Paintball is such an important part of your life, how it has improved your life and why you think others should try it too. Share some of your favorite Paintball images with your friends and share those from other like-minded Paintballers from around the globe.

Paintball inspires us. Paintball motivates us and Paintball can improve people’s lives, for the better.

So let’s unite on this day, as players, and make World Paintball Day something to be proud of.

Let's get the ball rolling NOW by sharing this and if you want go one step further you can add the World Paintball Day 2021 Facebook Frame to your profile pic.

Adding the frame is as easy as 1,2,3...4:
1 - Click your Facebook profile image
2 - Select ‘Update Profile Picture’
3 - Select Add Frame
4 - Search ‘World Paintball day 2021"


We are all online talking about paintball because we love it. So please, no negativity. Find a way to be positive about paintball not just today but every day.

In that case, it's during Supergame Central. I'll be there.

Rock on.

I remember that one. There was a guy who used to always wear the shirt to Extravaganza. I just never understood the idea of offering a special deal and trying to get everyone to PLAY on the same day. Logistically that's a nightmare and would provide a terrible experience if it ever took off.

Today is World Paintball Day! Please do something positive to promote paintball, even if it is just sharing this post on Facebook.

Wear a paintball t-shirt, invite a friend to play or find a way to share the love.

The real "World Paintball Day" is coming up this weekend and it marks 40 years since the first paintball game ever played. It would be a shame if this is shared all over the world.

June 27, 1981 - June 27, 2021.

www.worldpaintballday.com
Celebrate it at every course and store.

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.
