This Saturday People…

All welcome

Bump me – This event is happening next weekend !

As of last night I have another 2 teams, with the possibility of a 2nd Belconnen SES team putting out the challenge.

We’ve now got Belconnen SES 1, Belconnen SES 2, AusAID, DEWR, Kippax Woolworths, Team Blamemonkey, and a refridgeration company (further details still incoming) coming along.

You all know you want in on this… Get a team together !

teams of 5!

What size are the teams? 20??

quick incentive plan:

I believe there are already teams from ausaid, DEWR and the SES interested. If there is 10 Teams, I will drop the price of paint to $200/box. If 20 teams sign up, I will drop the price to $150/box! More teams = cheaper day for all!

So far I have 3 confirmed teams, Belconnen SES, AusAID, and DEWR are putting themselves forward for a challenge.

Blamemonkey is hereby named team leader of the RA team, even if he has to play solo.

If you would like to put an entire team of your workmates in for a challenge match, that’s ok too – although we are still intending to run composite teams on the day as I’ve already got 2 extras on my team.

And did I say how about that free pizza !

Hi all
Good to see so many new people getting involved in a great sport.
Sounds like we are going to have a great turn out.
Look forward to meeting you all and calling a few one for ones =)

*err* last week…

I’m hallucinating…

*ahem* the girl you know as Rambo called you about it earlier this week 🙂

Gday all,
thanks Maelinar for organising this…although contacting me first to confirm date availability and a proposed format might have been a good idea :). My counter proposal:
1. 16 Jun. arrive at 8:30 for and 9:00 start.
2. run as 5 man teams.
3. play mixed games of tournament format and generic woodsball games.
4. go through til 1 pm with a running points score.
5. there will be novelty prizes etc for the day.
6. I will throw in pizzas for lunch at 1pm.
7. initial price will be $40. This includes basic equipment hire of cam overalls, semi-automatic gun and mask and 200 balls. As it is a RA crew, I will throw in an extra 100 balls per person.
8. Extra paint will be at the discounted price of $250/box of 2000 balls (savings of $25/box!).
9. Maelinar to get a $10 credit per person for each person after the 10th to be used on the day for whatever HE wishes!!! So hit him up for extra paint 🙂
10. Che, Johnboy and any other RA mods will be worth bonus points on the day 😉
11. any other rules will be made up on the day.
12. to prove you are from RA, you must present a peg to receive the discount price! Anyone with out a peg will be punished appropriately…

stay tuned!


Hey Mate, I am happy to help run the day, I’ll probably be out at the field any way. have to talked to Keiran about specifics?


16th June, paint starts flying by 9:30-10am, paintball will set you back something like $60 for a beginner pack, but bring a few green notes along if you like pulling triggers – most people will know how much it costs them to play paintball already (Keiran – up to you to offer a discount old buddy old pal). 🙂

My team consists of at least 6 confirmed, but I can expand that without too much of a problem to about 15 or even 20 if the chinese hordes are willing to descend.

There are another 3 people who have been invited to put teams together, so best bet would be ~60 pax not including a RA team, consideration to the cold I’d consider about 20 hardcore players will show up regardless.

Depending on the turnout, I’ll either be playing or running a leaderboard, and I have already got a marshall lined up, although she may play depending on turnout as well.

Putting stuff up at 4 PM on a Friday and you expect replies from this crowd?

So now that we’ve seen it, what are the details?

and what’s the cost of the day? Times, etc??

Alright Mael, how many people needed for a team?

What ?

Not even Blamemonkey ?
S4anta ?
Random ?
AD ?

Come on… You know your wives want you to.
