booking of 17 deff people
they can't hear when i say to put your condom on, or when i say to start the game or that there airtank is empty or that they should not put paintballs in there god dam hopper!
or any thing think of anything you do to setup a game ? how do you give a saftey breafing when nobody can here any thing
well we put them down on paper and handen it out but my god
PUT YOUR MASK ON PUT YOUR MASK ON
PUT YOUR MASK ON PUT YOUR MASK ON
PUT YOUR MASK ON PUT YOUR MASK ON o rite you can't here so i walk over to him and shake it
o and little things later i wanted to add like
"becase this field has 2 feet of snow do not go up the stairs" so later someone who was looking away for that split second when the translater "said" it went up and suprise suprise fell off and hurt his knee
o and this is the big thing holy crap this i can not belive, it was the last game of the day, rules are simple play untell your out of paint, get shot, go back to the start tower and keep playing
when this one dumb girl is walking by her boyfrend on the other side and there both out she gets the bright idea for no reason mind you; to shoot him in the nuts 4 times SHOOT HIM IN THE NUTS AT CLOSE RANGE 4 TIMES
for no reason so that enden the day or him laying face down in the snow for 25ish min and me taking her marker away
holy crap i have new respect for refs ... and now i am one... and i have to go back tomorow ... and im not getting paied for this... man im cold

...welcome to the other side of the game. Next you can be the tech.... aak, fixing guns that people break... then you can run the store... which is a nightmare during a tourney or scenario... then you can do all of it in one day.... like I used to do.
..it's kinda fun, though, isn't it?

Like goldsmith said, now for the store, tourneys, and certification and you are on your way!

I feel your pain!
*cries some more*
Try reffing a bunch of hot heads that simply don┤t admit they have a break.
I┤m always like:
Me reffing for the first time: Dude you┤re out!
Angry player: What! What! What! No way! BOINK YOU! *takes off gloves* What! C┤mon lets go!
Teamate: Dude, you┤re out...
Angry teamate: Oh... *walks away shamefully*
And after that he┤s all cool and nice...
Some people are just too darn competitive...

You shouldn't be complaining. I have reffed, aside from the deaf group, spanish, russian and hebrew groups, among others. Patience is a vertue. Be calm, but stern. Issue warnings to players and if they keep breaking the rules, sit them out for a game or two.

o and a old cupple that came in and were like " hello we would like a paintball for our granson"
so it was kinda fun and way more exciting
they were genuily deff, sign lauange and everything, and im not mad at them because they coulden't lissen i guess im mad at my self ... or god, it was frustrating because they were not incline to follow rules like putting condomes on when you enter the stageing area adn yelling don't help
