But the LL events and the DDay events are huuuuuuge
I think it would be REALLY cool to have a LL event sponsoring Paintball in India, Taiwan, or Malaysia where the sport is really taking flight
you play paintball, part of the proceeds go towards sponsoring a team over there.

You bought the brand, not my allegiance.

I have played and seen events of rabbits v squirrels, as time travelling warriors from all time zones, terminators, zombies, knights, cartoon characters.
In the third event we held in the TAkhur Ghar trilogy we had allies, columbians and Somali pirates all vying for control
Something that relates too close to a current action or incident can be too inappropriate.
With the theme that we have used being based a few years back, but the overall situation in that part of the world being current it needs us to be careful how things are treated
There is nothing to prevent highlighting issues in an area and raiseing funds etc, eg using a different theme based on other events in that part of the world, and then highlighting the current situation with raising proceeds to a charity etc

I know how that goes. Yet I feel the world has turned a blind eye to the suffering of other in some places. I actually know a few people that came to the US from Burma. My research on the issue made the stories they told me about the place all too real with the military Junta their and their war crimes. We saw in the most recent Rambo movie a toned down version of what happens their. I also am a relative of those who were killed during the Holocaust and that also had a bit to play in this. As a paintball player who looks at the scenario scene, and as a writer and historian to some extent, I feel that us players as a community can come together and try to shead light on this stuff in our games to spread awareness in the same way it's a history lesson in a way with the D-Day games.
