    I said it before, and I will say it again: Next paintball can not be planned until the date is cleared with my sched so I can freaking attend.



    end of line.

    Wouldn't attending two Chicago Force events be exceding your yearly limit, though, Jeff?

    Same here. Due to my new route, I'm low on the totem pole in getting days off. Hopefully a fall outing is in the works?

    FWIW, I heard 3rd or 4th hand that Challenge Park sucks. I've never been there myself, but I have been to their store. I got the impression that they were trying to do too much, with the skate park and paintball and everything else.

    But like I said, I've never been there.

    [link=http://www.celebritypaintball.com/eventinfo.html]THIS[/link] looks interesting.
    Cons
    - It's the same weekend as Dragon*Con.
    - I too have heard bad things about CPX
    - It's expensive.
    - a lot of those pro guys who show up are geared up like Snake Eyes from COBRA COMMAND

    Pros
    - We could camp out
    - We could shoot Star Trek nerds
    - We could check out CPX

    Some people asked about the hat I was wearing at paintball. It's from a store called [link=http://www.peglegpaintball.com]Pegleg Paintball[/link]. I kinda of briefly told the story to some people, but this guy is my hero, and I have to share.

    People talk about taking the lemons life hands you and making lemonade, and Dale Price embodies this more than anyone else I know (full details can be found in [link=http://www.peglegpaintball.com/about.html]a story[/link] that a paintball magazine did about him). A paintball fanatic from the start, Dale lost his left leg 4 inches above the knee in a motorcycle accident in 1992. Rather than throw in the towel, he put in even more effort, and 4 years after the accident led his team to defeat the Ironmen, the best pro paintball team out there.

    He now owns 5 paintball stores in northern Utah, along with Utah's largest indoor and outdoor paintball fields. Besides being an excellent player, Dale is one of the nicest and most personable people I have ever met. It only takes 2 or 3 visits to his store before he can greet you by name, and he always remembers the smallest detail about your gear. He takes the time to answer any question, and I have never seen him talk down to anyone, no matter how stupid the question was.

    Anyway, I know none of this really matters to anyone here, you are not likely to ever meet him or shop at one of his stores, but we are talking paintball here, and Dale has had the single biggest impact on my paintball experience of any person, and I think he deserves a little praise.
