Gather signatures from the co-workers, and if you get enough signatures then try asking the boss.

Say to whoever in charge....

Hey I was thinking or organizing company pb trip...I think it would be fun and build comradry/teamwork.

Then if anyone doesnt wanna go just explain how they get to shoot the annoying co worker who always breaks the copy machine.

Peace,

You should write up a proposal that highlights the team building aspects of paintball and give it to your superior. Also include ALOT on how safe paintball is. You're going to need be prepared to quell any pre-conceived notions that your boss may have about paintball. Be prepared to educate your boss and co-workers about the sport.

Check around at local fields & see if any offer private group games or group discounts. Some fields even offer special deals for private/company games during the work week.

I agree with Stunts, check your fields. I know some in my area offer packages geared specificaly towards corporate team building.

It doesn't have to be official just ask your coworkers if they want to go and set it up from there. My company has an annual golf game that started off just by one of the other locations faxing around an invitation to play and after the second year the owners got behind it and now pay for it every year. I hate golf but free beer and steak makes it worthwhile.

I like these ideas! I was thinking about going to an outdoor field somewhere instead of an indoor field. Hopefully we could find a good place to go and get some good deals on rentals. Does anyone know if the Special Ops store rents out equipment?

Another possible bonus:
My brother's company's insurance policy rates Paintball as less dangerous than Golf or Bowling, just food for thought.

tell them that it will emphasize team work, communication, and how the lack of can drastically vary an outcome.

also it weeds out potential leads, who can think under stress, who flips out and who is prone to tantrums, hissy fits and who will sit in the corner when going gets tough
dont make people a priority, who are only making you an option

Just to warn, man... in the business community "team building" exercises are being re-tooled. Paintball and go-kart racing are seen as competitive and more aggressive and not conducive to building a synergistic workplace (Corporate-speak is fun!) Volunteering at soup kitchens and other charities is seen as a team building exercise now.

But who knows? Throw together a proposal... your biggest obstacles are going to be HR issues, and safety issues (the company is still liable for injuries at a workplace function, and workmans' comp claims still apply.)

Good luck, man... I guess it all depends on what kind of company you work for.

Nice thought but first thing you have to ask your self is, how is your companies view on the next fiscal year? Where in or at the throws of a recession, alot of tech and finacial companies have bulked or dumped ten of thousands of workers including industry leaders across the board. Now if you're in a firm that currently has a positive outlook this year, pretty much industrial solutions, energy and health care then you should create a large proposal for a company moral booster and team building exercise. There are paintball fields that put on clinics for just that but chances are if you go at this as "Hey lets get everyone to play paintball", it'll put you in a bad light in some bad times.
Putting together a proposal for this you go threw your chain procedures, your boss, then you and your boss take this to his boss, then HR and then an executive level or CO or owner depending on the size of your company.

Bottom line, you get a merit badge for wanting to improve your companies and co-workers lives abit at work but with the times... The bottom line comes first so take some thought into as, "IS thie good for me, or the company."

I dont think that special ops rent equipment but i could be wrong. We have had a couple of security companys come play with us for a work activity/ team building thing. and they had a blast. the best thing to do is ask what is the worst they can say no and your fiered because you came up with a stupid idea, jk really all they can say is no.
