I was just wondering if any promoters have tried. Since I am not a business or game promoter I don't feel it's in the best interest of paintball to call myself. Thanks for the reply.

It takes a lot of money, you're at the mercy of higher priority users (as in, the actual military). I think last time a game was scheduled, it got bumped because the site was needed for military training.

It's been at least 5 years since Blanding had a game. Not sure about other MOUT sites though.

Part of the problem is that paintball is messy. Blanding required the use of special paint that was grey (like the buildings cinderblocks). Plus, the promoter would then have to make sure the site was clear of all shells, pods, grenades, etc.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
