Paintball, how to get certified to play without the safety line and competitive play

edit1: updated

~~if you want to be BTO-ed, aka certified for competitive play~~
1. register in forum
http://www.weplaypaintball.com/forum/

2. come to this thread
http://www.weplaypaintball.com/forum/index.php?topic=123.0

What is the BTO?
The SPNS Basic Tournament Orientation (BTO) is designed to ensure that all participants at Red Dynasty Paintball Park are competent to play competitive paintball in accordance with PBAS requirements.

The course will be conducted by the Paintball Association of Singapore (PBAS). In this course, participants will learn about paintball safety and how to handle the marker in order to ensure a safe playing environment for everyone.
After the theory lesson, participants will be required to undergo a MCQ test before a practical test. Only after passing this practical test would they be allowed to play in the SPNS and the RD5 League and train w/o a centre line.

Do note that people is for people who want to be part of the paintball community - it is not just for people who want to play on field 3 and not join in the tournament paintball culture. The tournament paintball culture is one of walk-in, sharing of the field and scrimmages against other teams. Private practice sessions are subject only to field availability.

Thailand banned GTA after "copycat murder"

How convenient..
and so I continue my rant. I'm lazy today and will just paste an excerpt from Wikipedia. While this is an utterly disgraceful way of holding a debate, let me point out that politicians who took pot shots at games have no solid grounds to stand on either!

--excerpt from Wikipedia
The most common argument against video games is that they promote violence. A counter-argument commonly expressed in the video game community is that playing these games does not motivate players to actually commit acts of violence in reality; playing a first person shooter does not cause most people to commit murder. A US Secret Service study found that only 12 percent of those involved in school shootings were attracted to violent video games, while 24 percent read violent books and 27 percent were attracted to violent films.[5]
An Australian study found that only children already predisposed to violence were affected by violent games.[6]

What to prepare if you are going for paintball the first time

Items in * are must have
  1. *Cash - $50, plus coins for drinks
  2. *Loose fitting-Long sleeved shirt - that you want to run and get dirty in. If you play to play real rough, please bring elbow guards. Orange colour is not allowed.
  3. Loose fitting-T-short - to be worn underneath your Loose-fitting-Long sleeved shirt. Best if it's dry fit.
  4. *Long pants or jeans - that you want to run and get dirty in. If you play to play real rough, please bring knee guards. They laid gravel behind the bunkers, if you slide on them, you're going to tear your pants.
  5. Cap - for keeping hair clean (optional)
  6. Gloves - for sliding
  7. Elbow guards and knee guards - for rough play
  8. Shoes - that cover your toes
  9. Water - hydration keeps your strength up


  10. Sunblock - I'm just kidding. You're wearing long sleeve already, aren't you? Hello?...
  11. Bath items
  12. Clean clothes
  13. Willingness to have fun - you are here to *play*, not stay clean ;)
  14. Useful post match items
  15. Ice - for your drinks or icing your bruises
  16. Plasters - if you decide to ignore my advice on long sleeves..
