Here is a simple fundraising idea - PAINT

Let's say there is a brand of paint that the club likes to shoot. We get an account setup with the distributor, and sell the paint back to the club.

For instance, let's say GAP Paint (they are out of business, so we'll use them)

Dealer Cost of paint - $30 (this is what the club pays for the paint)
Price to USF Paintball Club Members - $40 (this is what everyone in the club pays for a case of paint)
Retail Price - $50 (club members save $10 per case, getting it from the club)

Every case sold, puts $10 back into the club.

10 cases a week = $100 in fund raising for the club per week

This could easily add up to a grand or two a semester. It's a win-win, it allows USF Club members to get a discount on paint by purchasing it from the club, and it allows the club to raise funds to promote the club and help it grow.

The biggest issues will be storage and accountability. As far as I know, it's not against school policy to store paintballs on campus (we can also get permission), so we'd just need someone (like the treasurer) to handle the transactions, and we're good to go

thoughts?

This really isnt my place, seeing as I dont go to USF, but I figured it wouldnt be too bad if I chimed in on the discussion.

Isnt paying for fundraisers yourself kind of pointless? I mean...you are donating to yourselves. Unless of course you are using this as a way to make sure people actually save enough money to be able to attend the events and stuff you guys plan on playing.

Well what if we did a fundraiser unassociated with paintball (something cheap) and used the money that we get for paintball. Like 1) Throwing whip cream pies at teachers ($2 each), water balloon toss on campus, or something like that. Or we can make Ice drinks (I have a blender). We could prob make a decent some $$$...Its not a bad idea.

it would actually just jack the price of playing up even more. we cant pay for our own fundraisers, then it kinda defeats the purpose.
the deal we have with Blitz right now is excellent (minus the whole tax thing).
