    I'm posting this in the NE forum, cuz that who i'd imagine would show up- but ANYONE is welcome to atend if this goes through.

    http://www.strategyplus.com is the place in central CT just over the Portland bridge in East Hampton CT. I've played there several times before, and its a good, woodsy course ALA capture the flag style. pretty big too. its a good 2 min sprint to the other flag usually. If memory serves, they have 4 courses, that you play twice (starting on oppostie bases each time)

    they also have a "city" set up.

    its insane. peeps drop like flies. lol

    but anyway,

    there is FULL rental of equipment and co2, and face masks, etc.
    all you need to own is your self and some pants.... and some work boots/hikers are recommended for the terrain

    you'll get a mask like so, and a gun like so

    9am - 4pm

    cost is posted as 60/head for a basic plan, but you're going to need more cash for ammo and co2
    with the group rate, if this happens and we have enough people, it may be a couple bucks cheaper for the basic plan. i'm not going to call or anything until i nkow there's some intrest.

    Now, here's what I'm thinking.

    Have the paintball event saturday, and plan it so the following day is a bristol autoX. there's plenty of hotels near by if you live far away. and don't want to travel up and down both days.

    would this be something you guys would be interested in holding sometime this summer?

    you don't have to buy one.
    just use theirs. its so much easier.

    they can't shoot over 285 fps anyway., and you can't use a fully auto gun. only semi's. so why bother. just use theirs.

    Chris- why not? paintball is soooooooooooooooooooo much f'in fun.

    it barely hurts when you get hit. its not like someone is throwing rcks at you. it feels like a cheap shot punch from a buddy at a bar in the shoulder.

    id possibly be down depending on work scheduel. looks like fun. would we have the whole course for ourselves or would it be a walk-on type thing where we would play with whoever wants to show up (like not necessarily HS peeps) ?

    depends on how many people are interested
    and will actually show up
    doesnt help if 30 people "want" to go, but only 5 actually do

    I would go but its opening day of fishing. If you guys go near a boat launch that morning just sit there watch as noobs and people forgetting how to launch their boats fuck things up. Its def a good laugh, except your friend does this to your boat. ( my boat got totalled this past weekend due to a friend's stupidity.)
