Winter Paintball Season?

I was trying to think of some activities that the community may participate in over the winter (not when it is as cold as it is this weekend, but maybe sometime when it is above negative thirty degrees!) and paintball came to mind! I saw on television once a group of people playing paintball in the winter snow and it really looked like a lot of fun. I am not sure how to go about getting a tournament together, but I bet anything that a lot of people would want to play, even in the cold! If anyone is interested in organizing a paintball tournament out here, there are some great resources for paintball guns and various paintball supplies online. I don't know anything about paintball however some quick research revealed that the Tippmann A-5 is one of the top selling models. I think I would need something that isn't so bulky so I could move around, but being so out of shape, I am very confident that I'd be down pretty much right away, so I think I would opt to be like a referee or something like that. A paintball gun package has everything that anyone would need to be completely armed with paint, and taking a look at all that comes with the package, it looks like this is a very serious, serious hobby.

Winter paintball is actually great idea. Would be fun to do around nearby lake we have with snow and winter camouflage suits(if we manage to get them somehow). Thank you for the idea never really thought of that.

I tried it once in a while and its very fun.. it consumes a lot of fats and doing excercise. Hopefully there's someone out there that would organize a tournament for us to join. ;)

I guess paintball in the winter wouldn't be such a bad idea, but what if the paintballs freeze up? Then you won't be playing that long trust me......hehe.

While the paintball gun is pretty durable, you may need to exchange some parts or add some of the paintball gun accessories to the paintball gun. This can be an opportunity to upgrade your gun.

Be careful about how cold the paintballs get. They get hard and hurt a little bit more in colder weather.
