Paintball this weekend – Orion Valley – February 19, 2011
We will be playing this Saturday, February 19th in the Valley.
The weather will be mostly cloudy with a high of 70 – these are truly the golden days. Hurry and come play before it’s 100 degrees outside (next month).
Primary scenario: HOSTAGE RESCUE
You know you can storm the fort when you’re spraying and praying – but what if you need to rescue a team mate? Special guest for this game will be Harry Hostage. What was he doing in the fort in the first place?
Special requirements: This scenario assumes body armor (multiple shots/out), so feel free to bring out some padding.
If you plan on being or bringing out someone as a guest this weekend, please let me know in advance, so that we can have some gear put aside for them. At this time all of our guest gear is cleaned up and the weather should be nice, so it’s a good time to get a guest into the action.
Bring a ruck and what you need to sustain while playing (water, camelback, etc.).
A few notes on 2011:
Upcoming pump and paint game – Petty Paintball in Lockhart (http://www.pettypb.com/) is hosting a pump-only big game on February 26th. I am planning on heading up Saturday morning (games start at 11am), and then having some great BBQ in Lockhart (http://www.kreuzmarket.com/) before heading back. If you like to play with a pump marker, this game will be awesome. If you would like to play with a pump and/or check this out, please let me know as I have 3 spare pump guns I will lend out for this event. Field paint is required (air is included), but the event only costs $10.
CO2 fills now available – Thanks to everyone who paid dues in the Fall, we now have a CO2 tank at Orion Valley. That’s right – starting this weekend, you can get your fills at the field instead of trying your luck with the blokes at Wal-mart, Academy, or wherever else you’ve been getting them. If you are a dues-paying member, your fills are free! If you haven’t paid dues, fills are going to cost you $2 – which is still half of what you’d pay at the store. Which brings me to . . .
Pay Yer Dues – In the timeless words of Mr. “Knuckles” Wiski, our tenderhearted enforcer, “Those forts don’t build themselves!” Dues are $25 for the season or $40 for the year. Since fills at a store-like place are now close to $4/ea, plus travel, plus dealing with Ye Olde Paintball Shoppe-keep.
Please consider paying these via paypal, so I don’t have to have Wiski chasing you around the field with a lead pipe (unless that’s your thing).
Let me know if you need a copy of the new schedule . . .
Look forward to seeing everyone there!
