Do I even have a web site???

I get an e-mail like this one about twice a month:

Hello. I just looked at your web site and I have a few questions. How much does it cost? Where are you located? When are you open? Do you have a pro shop? Can my 7 year old play and, oh yeah, can I bring my own paint? Please reply as soon as possible since we plan to play tomorrow.

Someone do me a favor. Take a look at my T-Square Paintball web site and tell me what in the h*** I'm missing!

No, you've got most of the information you need there.

I do believe you might be misleading your customers a bit on the cost. From the FAQ:

"HOW LONG WILL THE 100 PAINTBALLS LAST? - SINCE WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER HOW FAST YOU DECIDE TO SHOOT YOUR PAINTBALLS IT’S IMPOSSIBLEFOR US TO SAY. SOME PLAYERS CAN MAKE 100 PAINTBALLS LAST ALL DAY. MOST END UP BUYING A COUPLE OF EXTRA BAGS OF PAINT ($5 PER 100 PAINTBALLS). WE DO NOT ALLOW HIGH RATES OF FIRE."

Does you average customer really shoot 300 paintball or less? If yes, then I guess you are not misleading them.

If I knew nothing about paintball and I read your FAQ, I would assume I'd pay $10 for field fees, $5 for rentals, and maybe another $10 for paintballs (maybe less), so a total of $25 at the the most.

$25 is actually just about right ($24.75 average per player at last count). Some shoot 100 paintballs and some shoot a case. I know that sounds ridiculously low compared to your Canadian rates. It's even low compared to most fields here in the states but it works for me. I'm very, very serious about keeping the rate of fire down. It's so much less stressful for me and the player.

Thanks for the input.

I think that's great. I'm surprised that you can keep it that low on average, but I think it's great. Good for you . As long as you are paying the bills and staying out o the poor-house.
