War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

John Stuart Mill, English economist & philosopher (1806 – 1873)

Paintball this weekend – Orion Valley – May 15, 2010

We will be playing this Saturday, May 15thst in the Valley. We’ll get started with playing at 10am, with guest briefing at 9:45am, so make sure you are ready to go at that time. So far, it looks like it will be around 80 and potentially rainy – so it shouldn’t be that hot. If you haven’t played with us before, yes – we do play in the rain. So come prepared!

Primary scenario: SEARCH AND DESTROY

We’ll start off with some light field work and then move into some search and destroy scenarios – moving from the eastern field and valley into the playing area. We got started on this last time and it seemed to work out pretty well.

Special requirements: If you have radios (FRS), this is a great scenario to use them. We’ll have our team radios out there as well.


If you plan on bringing on someone as a guest this weekend, please let me know in advance, so that we can have some gear put aside for them.

Bring a ruck and what you need to sustain while playing (water, camelback, etc.)

DUES Note!!! Our collections man is advising me that I need to give a reminder about team dues. If you haven’t thrown in, please bring out $25 for the season or $40 for the year. We’ve burned through our war chest getting the field set-up with the new bunkers and need some donations for Phase 2.

Please note, if you need directions they are posted in the forums, under the “Orion Raiders Paintball” section. There will also be a games discussion for this weekend listed there as well.

Look forward to seeing everyone there!
