Being an outsider growing up, I was so very lucky to have found paintball. A community that accepted me, a venue to meet different types of people with common interest, and a safe place to express myself on the field and to my peers. It is important that we invest into growing this environment while keeping it safe and positive for the people involved. Like bees, butterflies and hummingbirds pollinating plants to help them produce copious amounts of food, we must also help pollinate and grow our community. By accepting the people around us for who they are, looking past race, politics, religion, sexual orientation, and another superficial forces that may divide us is critical in the growth of our community and our world. The Pollinator Series is a symbol of growth. This seems fitting, as I believe these are some of the nicest bands we have made yet.
