Warped Sportz Declines to Appear at World Cup
October 2002

For the first time in over five years, Warped Sportz, Inc. will not be vending or setting up a promo area at this year’s World Cup. The decision is due to the new policy regarding compounds and promo areas outlined by the PSP.

“We had some big things, some really cool things planned for this year,” said Warped CEO Ed Poorman. “Seriously. We were looking at crazy stuff, like midgets and cage- dancers. We were even in talks about having a huge FREE concert featuring Unwritten Law. However, with the new policies regarding the zero tolerance ban for alcohol, even for those of age, and the ‘lewd behavior clause’ it just became far too much effort and too sticky. What’s lewd behavior? My mom thinks its women no wearing bras or bands that swear on stage.”

“Over the past several years, I think we’ve developed a pretty good reputation, along with WDP, for giving players and event goers something extra. Everything from the Heaven’s to the rock concerts to IAO, to tattoo artists and fire breathers,” said Warped Marketing Director Dan Napoli. “Just show up and sell stuff? That doesn’t seem very cool. For us, it certainly doesn’t feel like we’re giving the paintball scene anything back, or anything extra. We’d like to thing we are about more than just taking people’s money.” 

PSP has made a decree this year that no vendor may have or disperse alcohol, even to those of age, in their area. Any vendor doing so will be removed. Also, no acts of  “lewd behavior” will be permitted as well. Vendors are expected to control their own area, and enforce these policies. 

“That’s the other difficult thing,” said Napoli. “The extra staff needed to control our area, along with the vague guidelines we’d have to follow, like no ‘lewd behavior’, makes doing anything above and beyond an impossibility.”
