Often, when you are considering options for a Birthday Party, A Bucks Party, A Work Social event or Christmas Party the idea of Paintball will be discussed. Paintball does take a little bit of planning, but it absolutely worth it.
Use one or the other, OR BOTH. Use the power of social media to do the organising for you.
Ideally, it would go something like this. Using Facebook Messenger, create a group chat and send out a message along these lines – “Hey, I’m organising a group to play Paintball on ??/??/2017 at Project Paintball for ‘XYZ Occasion’. I’m creating an event on Facebook that will have all the details, let me know if you’re keen”
Create the event on Facebook and Invite your mates. Your friends will want to know where, when, and how much it will cost. Using the events page, set Project Paintball Wagga as the address, select your date and time and post them a link to our packages so they can find out what suits them best – [http://www.waggapaintball.com.au/packages/prices.aspx].
Don’t forget to send a text to that one mate who doesn’t have Facebook, too.
Every good paintball field asks for a deposit. For us, we ask that you pay $30 per person. So once your friends begin responding to your message and your group begins taking shape, let everyone know they need to pay $30 to confirm their spot. We need 6 players or more, for you to have a private booking, if you have less, you can join in with other parties if the times align.
Deposits are great for you, and for us. It let’s you know that your mates are serious, and that they won’t let you down and it lets us know exactly how many players to expect. This $30 is payable to us at least 1 week before your booking, so we suggest giving your friends a deadline of 2 weeks beforehand to get it to you, because everyone has a mate (or 5) who are late to pay… This $30 will come off your package price on the day, so if you select the Recruit Pack for example which is $99, you will only pay $69 on the day.
If you follow these steps (pretty easy, right?) you will have a group of people ready to play with little to no hassle at all. It takes around 5 minutes to set up the Facebook Messenger chat + Facebook event and it will literally keep track of everything for you and you get the rewards of a better gun, MORE paintballs and maybe some insider knowledge from your referee on how to win some games. Ok, maybe we’ve said too much…
Hope to see you at the field soon.
