  1. Judging Interest

    13 April 2010 - 08:31 AM

    Hey,
    I have been working with a few others on the idea of paintball clinics in NH. I know that there are none currently (except maybe some at Fox4), and that I've always wished I had someone to teach me what they know. I was lucky enough to find a private coach, but many of you may not be.

    Please let me know if you or someone you know would be interested in helping or participating, and what you would be willing to pay.
  2. Why I'm against all-girls teams

    12 April 2010 - 04:19 PM

    Us girls are always complaining because we want to be treated equally. We all say we love paintball because men and women can easily be equal to each other. We would all be very, very angry if a girl who was more skilled than a guy didn't get the spot on a team at tryouts due to her gender.

    The pendulum swings both ways.

    If we want to be equal, lets be equal. If women and men are equally capable of playing, and we love that, then why segregate ourselves into a different league? Why admit we need our own tournaments to be successful, as if this were basketball and not paintball? If a guy is just as skilled as a girl, why deny him the chance to be on the team? Why deny him something he deserves just as much as any girl out there? (Lets face it girls, our gender usually helps us rather than hurts us, so the "girls have it harder and deserve it/need it more" argument isn't going to work on me).

    I get it, I really do. Girls like hanging out with girls, guys like hanging out with guys. We want to stick together and reach out to other women. We want to show that girls are bad ass, and can run and gun just like the boys. Well, lets do that by infiltrating all the teams out there, instead of hoarding ourselves into little clusters.

    When you draw from a smaller pool of players, the skill levels are not as high. There's less girls who play, so there are fewer skilled girls than there are skilled guys. That's just basic logic. Lets prove that girls can be as good as the guys- because an all girls team probably cant get as high as a mixed-gender team that was selected based on skill. If girls start showing up more and more in leagues where they belong playing just as good as the guys, people cant help but notice.

    I as a girl would be more impressed by seeing a lot of girls who are pros, than seeing a team of girls who are mediocre. After all, in New Hampshire, my home state, an all girls team just plain isn't possible. There aren't enough girls. I would be more inspired to know that I can make it big time by hacking it out with the boys and battling with them on skills alone, than I would be by thinking the only way to do it is to find an all-girls team.

    In reality, girls teams accomplish little. They show the value of girl power but that's about it. On the flip side, they make guys angry at the double standard, and therefor less accepting of women in the sport.Girls teams- I'm not out to bash you, really. Your heart is in the right place, and I salute you for what you're trying to accomplish, I just disagree on the way you're going about it. I like the idea of a 'Band of Sisters'. I like being able to talk to other girls who play. But I can do that without making a team around it. I get having a team just to have fun playing with the people you enjoy playing with most, rather than having a team who's goal is to be competitive, and that's OK too... but the guys will still have a problem with the double standard, and they'll have a legitimate argument.

    Competitive teams are for competing. Tournaments are for showcasing skills and figuring out who is the best. They aren't the place for sexism, from either gender.I don't really want to start a giant flame war, here; and don't get me wrong, I'm huge into the pro-women side of the sport, but this is one thing that I feel does more harm than good for women in the sport. When I say I'm for girls playing and being equal, I mean it. I'm for equality, not for girls getting special treatment.

    The dunkin donuts waffles are only half waffley! The other side is flat! What the heck kinda crap is this?!?! Its like a waffle/pancake hybrid. Only, lamer. If I wanted a pancake, I woulda got a pancake. DUH.
  4. What chrono speed to you preffer?

    11 March 2010 - 05:38 PM

    I've played fields that had it at 265, 280, 275, and 300...

    I think 280 is my favorite... because you can bunker people without feeling bad, but you dont get enough bounces to be frustrating.
  5. I DONT KNOW! AHHH
