Which I think is the wrong question. As has been noted here already, the
better question is "When would paintball be an appropriate activity in
I totally agree that paintball is never appropriate for a scouting event.
My concern was throwing up what seems to be a straw man argument of not
being covered by insurance. That is why I created the ridicules example of
pulling the boys on their bikes behind the truck on the freeway.
The reasons to oppose paintball are strong enough without losing
credibility. When I hear people quoting as fact things that cannot be
demonstrated I tend to discount much of the other good stuff they bring to
the table. As trainers we all need to be aware of the things we say and
their consequences on the audience.
