Just a heads up for those who might not know. It is Paintball season, This year is turning out to be one of the best so far. Lots of new games, more work done to the field, with more to come. And we are averaging 30 to 40 players a weekend. Alot more fun with more people.
For those with kids 12/13 and up, The Rupert Paintball Collective has taken on a new role of making the sport more of a learning platform than in the past. It is still an awesome fun sport, but we are adding a military ranking system. Members move up in the ranks from Private, private first class etc… by showing team building skills, leadership skills ( leading a squad ), good sportmanship, helping out, and being prepared for the day to name a few. Moving up in the ranks not only gives a sense of pride, but gives benifits. The local Paintball supplier has agreed to provide some weekly discounts to different ranks, rank also allows member to utilise different marker settings, full auto etc…
But it is not just for kids, we have a lerge numer of adults who come out to play every weekend alone or with thier kids.
Families are encouraged to come out, even if they are not playing. we have a fire pit with benches and tables for those who just want to come watch.
I will post details on where to get more info, and rental packages next post, incase it is “advertising”
