Last week's question wanted to know what was your first introduction to paintball. The responses were fairly typical but instructive nonetheless. For all the Average Joe Ballers out there clamoring for friends taking friends to play paintball--you were right. It was the number one response by a huge margin. More people were introduced to paintball by a friend than the next three largest vote getters combined. And if friends bringing friends to play paintball is by far and away the most commonplace method how many local fields encourage the practice with special promotions and/or discounts? (I have no idea. But back when dinosaurs roamed the earth I don't recall the local field(s) I played at doing stuff quite like that. It was more like discounts based on past purchases or group related discounts.)
Anyway, rounding out the votes magazines garnered 5% as did TV (5%) with other media straggling in at 2%. Parties (16%), Outings (12%) & Other (14%) rounded out the other significant vote recipients. Some percentage of "Other" votes probably could have gone into one of the defined categories as well but mostly seemed to amount to stumbled across paintball from something seen or read or from a friend or acquaintance.
So who's going to organize a national Take a Friend to Play Paintball Day?
For the observant among you--Yes, you've guessed correctly and there is no new Monday Poll this week. If you've got an idea or are curious about something feel free to post up your Monday Poll suggestions in the comments. Or you could go crazy and comment on the post. Just throwing it out there.
