Paintball this weekend – The Ranch – November 19, 2011

We will be playing some paintball this Saturday, November 19th at The Ranch. It will be partly cloudy with a high of 80, so the winter is not yet upon us (I guess since it’s not yet January?). If you haven’t been to The Ranch, this is a different location than Orion Valley, so make sure you know where you’re heading!

Primary scenario: THE HUNT

It’s TEOTWAWKI and you are on patrol to bring back some fresh meat to your retreat. Unfortunately, some of the post-apocalyptic denizens have other things in mind. Your goal is to bring back 1-3 days worth of food and not lose your top knot in the process. If you are a vegetarian, you can pretend you are scouting for a giant soy deer, hog, or rabbit.

Special requirements: Camouflage is good for this scenario. Also if you have a paintball pistol, it may be good to keep handy while you are processing the game . . .

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 we have 2 guests signed up, so let me know ASAP if you need loaner gear.

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

There will also be a games discussion for this weekend in the forums, under the “Orion Raiders Paintball” section. If you need directions, please let me know off-line.

Look forward to seeing everyone there!

Paintball this weekend – Orion Valley – November 5, 2011

We will be playing some paintball this Saturday, November 5th at the Orion Valley. It will be sunny with a high of 76, so perfect weather to get out and shoot your fellows. Don’t forget we are heading out to Wurstfest in the evening, so make sure to bring your lederhosen, if you are coming in from out of town and staying for the evening festivities.

Primary scenario: THE GUNPOWDER PLOT!

Remember, remember, the 5th of November . . In honor of Guy Fawkes Day, we are doing the gunpowder plot paintball style at Orion Valley. We’ll be transporting loads of gunpowder (not real) to the House of Lords Fort and giving old King James the what-for – all the while attempting to avoid the fire of the King’s guards and their matchlock markers.

Special requirements: If you have a powdered wig you’ve been itching to bring out to a game, unfortunately this scenario is a little too early, but maybe you can bring it out for the French Revolution scenario next summer . . .

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. We have at least 2 guests signed up, so let me know ASAP if you need loaner gear.

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

Our next game will be on Nov. 19th – back at The Ranch. More details on this game will be posted to the forums as we get closer to that event.

Look forward to seeing everyone there!
