Just introducing myself. Basically forum illiterate and amazed at the depth of the options. Chasbronson is my screen name, not sure if anyone has seen the movies, but it seemed like a cool name.

My four boys and I, have a rec ball field in South Central PA. The Minutemann Paintball. Located in the Chambersburg, Greencastle Gettysburg, Waynesboro, Hagerstown area. It started about six or seven years ago with a $50 paintball marker ant a yard sale. I have been since living my second childhood. We sawed the boards on our old mill, built bunkers, fought the army corps engineers,department of environment protection and soil conservation. We built a field, and hung netting and a parking ot. Set up a pro shot and installed 200 amp service.

We have enjoyed playing paintball, and bringing the fun to everyone else at our field. We have recently moved to a new field open to the public. We endeavor to keep paintball affordable to play as we can, without putting the whole endeavor in a hole. WE know of good candidates for paintball, but simply can't afford to play. For $30 we offer rentals with 500 paintballs.

In the future we would like to have a sponsor program set up so that people can donate so some of the kids that can't afford to play will still get that opportunity. We have sponsored some ourselves before, right now we are doing one Saturday a month to pool players. We need players, the field is worth playing, we play, so we know. It's not Skirmish or Tippman town but it's not too woodpiles in the woods either.

We would like to post pictures some wheres, but don't know how. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Sincerely Mr. Bronson.

ps. I figured out how to upload a picture of 2006 photo of me and minuteman maybe?? Sorry pics failed


Welcome to the forum...That's all I really had to say, sounds pretty cool. Have you considered doing some type of special group for those kids that can't afford to play with normal costs. Divide em up into teams and keep those same teams for a season and work on their skills? You could have them help out at the field in exchange for the discount?





Oh...and indeed, T-Freak isn't even a paintballer. So avoid him at all costs, plus, he's a confederate rebel...

Welcome! From all the info in your post (yes, I did read all of it) it looks like the game of paintball has been positively improved by your love of the sport. I hope things work out with your field.

Welcome to the forum buddy! Doesn't sound like your a noobie but maybe a forum noobie. Your field sound sweet and posting pics is a must. To do this is really simple. Take a photo with a digital camera, then you can use one of the many downloadable photo editing programs to crop and size it. Most photo editing programs have a "save for web" function that really helps with this. From there get a Photobucket account to host your photos. Once your photos are downloaded you can coppy and past the Image code (the code looks like this- [IMG]http://i563.photobuc...tball/MyGun.jpg[/IM])


Good luck man!
