I am a 41 year old Dad who started playing paintball with my son 6 years ago. My son and I first time playing was at silver spur, we had went with people from my work to try it out and see how much fun it might be. I have to say after playing for 6 years and getting the opportunity to watch my son grow to love the game as much as I do.
We have always played at Silver spur, we are located about 45 minutes from Silver Spur in Newburgh, Indiana. This last year I learned a valuable lesson in trying a paintball Field right in my own back yard. The fields were nice, the competition weak but the field has just started up. The whole time I was there I had always felt there was something missing in the experience.
My profession takes me deep into the business world, I travel the world and have seen many places and experienced many cultures. I understand business practices and also understand what it takes to run a successful business. When opening a new business there are certain key elements in how you gain the trust of your clients and you treat everyone with respect. There are also many keys to growing a business and many different ways. Itís not always about making as much money as you can. Itís about building relationships that last for many years and knowing how to build your business on word of mouth.
I could write about how great the fields are at silver spur, and also how skillful the staff is in safety, gun repair and a quality food service, but I want to single out the owner of the establishment.
He is known as Popís, I have taken my son to silver spur for many years, and I watch my son interact with Pops and know that my son respects him and trust him as a mentor and also a successful business owner.
I have also watched Popís work on a young kids marker and the kids just sweating bullets wondering how much it will cost and Popís would open the gun make a few adjustments not using any new parts and put a smile on this kids face when Pops hands him his marker and says ď GO PlayĒ .
People in business today need to learn a few things about growing relationships and setting a good example of fair play and honesty.
I want to say thanks to Popís and his staff for making my family welcome and also building that trusting relationship. We bring new people to silver spur every chance we get. I encourage all fathers to bond with there sons and take up a hobby and maybe if your lucky you will find a place like Silver spur to play.
AWESOME Fields Ė GREAT STAFF Ė THE Indoor Field ďROCKSĒ - We got to play on it today for the first time and it was just unreal. If you enjoy speed ball this will give you all you can handle. We played 6 games today and they didnít last more then 30-45 seconds. The rush is out of the world. I was forced to be at the top of my game.
