As before with such celebrities we have reported on including Survivorman Les Stroud and Hip Hop artist Classified … we feel it important to track down and hear from various celebrities that enjoy paintball too.

I found myself pulled in by Thomas Fletcher as I have personally witnessed so much of his work. Over the years I have attended many games at Waynes World Of Paintball and have been amazed at his commitment. His pictures and videos really capture the epic moments on and off the field!

992759_10202775084161997_384357513_nChristopher Alnazer is a young man, 23 years of age, that absolutely loves paintball. Some people choose to do drugs, paintball is Christopher’s drug. Christopher is a man that will not take no for an answer. If he wants to do something in life, he does whatever it takes to make that “something” happen.

The Catshack Reports touched based with Chris following his amazing performance at World Cup. To fill you in a bit better, Chris not only has Cerebral Palsy, he is only able to get around in a wheelchair. Seems to be a pretty limiting existence don’t you think?… well not for Chris!!
