What are the times of each session?

chboro Posted on 21/5 16:43
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

9 - it ends.

Then 1 I think - til it ends.

newholgate Posted on 21/5 16:45
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...



So in English is that:
First session starts at 9am and lasts until it ends?
Second session starts at 1pm and lasts until it ends?

Yes, Paddy can correct me if I have got it wrong.

Just you

I was listening but never heard you

wheelz Posted on 4/6 19:15
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Me and Paul (from battlezone) were interviewed @ Clevo this am.. it wasn't live on air, but they've edited and broadcast this afty, I heard it about 4:15 on the way home on the CSV Action slot...

they said "if ch had been here, we'd have gone live.."

..I believe they're gonna plug it a couple of times this week; next broadcast might be on the Matthew Davies brekkie show tomorrow... probably!!

I will bring my money to footy tomorrow night ch.

Is it £20 for the whole day then pay for any extra paintballs on the day?

chboro Posted on 4/6 21:19
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Yep, £5 for 100, with £1 going to the charity. They take card payments if you run out of cash - I bet you don't hit me from over 10 m away so you'll keep stocking up til you finally get one on target

JSawyers200 Posted on 4/6 21:22

I refuse the bet as I would feel I would be letting my team down by just focussing on just sticking a cap in your ass (ooh-err).

plus, a couple more confirmations this evening; we could possibly round up enough bodies yet!!

chboro Posted on 8/6 18:46
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

JSawyers200 Posted on 8/6 18:59
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Protective mask, paintball gun, smoke grenades?!?!

JSawyers200 Posted on 8/6 19:22
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Well????

chboro Posted on 8/6 19:26
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Not grenades - you have to purchase paint on site, the masks maybe, they have to test the guns before you use on site (Health and safety) so it's too late to take your own.

JSawyers200 Posted on 8/6 19:27
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Can they not test the gun in the morning?

chboro Posted on 8/6 19:29
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

No, you need to give them warning that you'll be taking your own and the speed settings on the gun need to be tested and adjusted to what they are insured for. They simply won't have time in the morning to test it.

chboro Posted on 8/6 19:32
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Q: Can i bring my own paintball marker?

A:You can bring your own marker to Battlezone, but we need to chronograph it to make sure that it is firing below 300 fps. Also, note that you can only fire paint purchased at Battlezone


You can take one and have a word to see if they will allow it, but I think it'll be too short notice to be honest.

JSawyers200 Posted on 8/6 19:32
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Still bringing it - and the smoke grenade.

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

A great team indeed.
A big thanks to CH and wheelz.
It was nice to see John Robbo again, who I first me in 1987.
He was a git then and he's a git now

Glad you all enjoyed it, I am hurting more now than I was while playing

We were obviously hoping for a larger turn out, but due to Paul(BZ paintball) giving us a sh­­it hot deal and everyone being trigger happy we have still managed to make just over £500 I think.

Excellent day 2day
Thoroughly enjoyed it, well done to WheelZ and Ch for organising it.
My back is like a join the dots competition, the amount of bullet holes on it - I'm sure a nice bottle of jack daniels will Help

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Yes, that exclusive pottery I texted you about would look ideal on your mantel piece

newholgate Posted on 10/6 14:13
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

And you could so easliy increase its value

JSawyers200 Posted on 10/6 14:18
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

I have manged to acquire 2 very interesting bruises.
I have an "entry" wound on my right arm, and on the other side of my arm, I have an "exit" wound.

Not quite sure how that happened !!

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Good afternoon, Flyers..!! I was going to post this last night but called in to the local for a post-event 'chill out' with oldborofart, which turned into a Guinness session... and got slightly hammered..! (good job the bride was asleep when I finally got indoors )

Anyway, I digress... some 'thank you's are required...

Firstly, I would like to thank each and everyone who turned out to support the fun n' games yesterday -- I hope you all enjoyed getting splattered as much as us non-combatants did watching you all turn different colours..!!

Secondly, a VERY special personal thanks to ch, whose assistance in organising the event was invaluable to me. I owe you, fella!

On behalf of MDSA, I would also like to convey my respect to Paul Banks, and all his staff @ BZ too, for a very professional, well-run facility.

In addition, he deserves our thanks for nominating MDSA as the Charity to receive Battlezone's support this year, so every subsequent event held will generate a donation to the Minibus Appeal..! A marvellous gesture, I'm sure you'll all agree.

The day realised £525 with a further £20 to come from telephone raffle sales (from the Knackered One and Raymondo). We have £52 to pay MFC Retail for some of the prizes (which were discounted for us @ 50% - thanks due there also), so our projected profit is

<drum roll>

£493..!!

.. a brilliant total. I shall add £7 from me arse-pocket to make it a round £500.

Thanks again everyone. Love yaz to bits

wheelz

ps: BZ have invited us to do another one before their sponsorship 'year' expires.. details to follow in due course.

newholgate Posted on 10/6 15:15
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

But Knax, the pottery could be worth quite a bit. Its value could rapidly increase so much, that you could afford to get yourself loads of whisky

wheelz Posted on 10/6 15:36
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Ooops! Forgot to mention..

the first two prizes in the raffle were donated by Paul from Battlezone, and BOTH were won by Wheelies Members, who promptly returned them to MDSA to raffle/auction/whatever.

1st = 1 hours LaserQuest for 10 people [worth £100]

2nd = A days Paintballing for 2 people [worth £60] (- dunno who won that one )

I accepted an offer of £100 to the fund for the 2nd Prize in the pub last night, which leaves the 1st Prize up for grabs..

If the majority of you agree, we'll raffle it off on the board and draw it on the Sponsored Pis.. er, Walk on June 24..

whadya reckon, peeps

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Your link says private. I hope that £100 was added to the amount raised amount since it was donated by Paul

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Good pics those wheelz

I think the look of boz' helmet in that pic was one of the familiar sights from the day

re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

He won't get the prize til I get the voucher..!!

wheelz Posted on 10/6 19:45
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Just received an email from one of the lads who was there yesterday. As well as saying how much he enjoyed the day, he put forward a suggestion which we could possibly take on board as a money spinner at a future paintball day ie: have a BBQ on the go during the day/at the end of the sessions..?

Food for thought (no pun intended)

What d'you reckon? If you were there yesterday, would you have been a 'barbie customer' if one was available? I'd be interested in your comments.

newholgate Posted on 10/6 19:47
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Deffo wheelz! A nice bit of BBQed chicken, Mmmmmmmmm

wheelz Posted on 10/6 19:49
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

That's 3 of us then, nh..

newholgate Posted on 10/6 19:49
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

We could have also done with a nice cold glass (or few) of wine/can(s) of lager at the end.

Another money spinner to go with the BBQ maybe?

newholgate Posted on 10/6 19:49
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

And SRO, makes 4

Stepper_T Posted on 10/6 19:50
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Yes, I went for a Bacon sarnie, and was told it was only for the 'real' customers

wheelz Posted on 10/6 19:59
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

yeah, another good one..

I don't think you'd be allowed back on the course after a beer, etc tho', Health n Safety and all that..


when ch and me went to suss it out, Paul BZ mentioned to a gang that was about to go on to their last game that he was going to get a case of ale for them at the finish, I recall.

Boro85 Posted on 10/6 20:01
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Next time i reckon we should pay £30 for the full day too and get 500 paintballs, rather than paying £20 and only getting 200.

chboro Posted on 10/6 20:03
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

The only reason we paid £20 and got 200 balls is cos the MDSA got ten of that back, so in reality BZ only got £10 which covered the cost of the paint balls.

If we paid £30 we wouldn't get as good a deal towards to charity.

Stepper_T Posted on 10/6 20:04
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

There were loads of bottles of Stella in that store-room where you got the balls from.

newholgate Posted on 10/6 20:05
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

wheelz, alcohol at the end of course

Boro85, membership rates are good. £30 for the year, then £5 walk on fee inc. 100 paintballs. Tops ups are £4 for 100. Also includes breakfast, lunch and hot drinks.

We are thinking about getting memberships. Obviously, the charity event rates would be different (similar to yesterday) but I reckon wheelz could be onto a winner there with the BBQ. One at lunch time and one for tea. IT would save people nipping into Yarm as well. Those chips and sausages didn't look very nice.

I am thinking about it too. Check out their shop for padded gear

Boro85 Posted on 10/6 20:08
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

Ah no worries then. I didnt have a problem with paying for more paintballs just thought we'd get a few more thrown in with the £30 effort.

Can we hide behind the sheep next time?

wheelz Posted on 10/6 20:12
re: PAINTBALLING DAY INFO...

You'll have to ask ch, '85.. he's the only one i know who can make a 'ewe' turn..

newholgate Posted on 10/6 20:14

in Thornaby too, I might have to get some extra-padded gloves for next time
