    One of THE favorite events is coming Sunday, October 5th. That's right....PAINTBALL!! Join us as we travel to our favorite spot Blast Camp in Hobart, Indiana (just 30-40 minutes from Chicago) as we shoot our brethren in fun. We'll be starting a caravan of cars from the NW side at 7:30(more info on that to come).

    So to break it down:

    Sunday, October 5th 9:00
    Blast Camp
    $30.00 to get started / $25.00 if you have equipment


    Make sure you pack a lunch since their food consists mainly of expensive snacks. There is a Subway we usually hit right at the exit off of 80/94.

    We're hoping for a big attendance boost this time since we'll be going on a Sunday. Go ahead and invite as many as you'd like.

    It looks like Marshall will be returning with the kids again. But I, alas, will have to miss this time.

    Message received, I will be bringing more stuff for the little guys to use. Hope more of the old crowd can make it.

    Hey, this is coming up quick, got to go get my gear ready.

    (When I say gear, it sounds like I'm actually good at this or something, but I just mean, clothes I don't mind getting dirty :) )

    New Information!

    If you would like to carpool, we will be meeting at Veterans Square on the north side (Official Address to follow soon).

    We will be leaving at 7:30 am sharp. That's leaving, so please be there, because there are only two seasons in Chicago, Winter and Construction.

    I was at Blast Camp for their big game (Operation Citadel) last weekend, when I fielded my tank for the first time. Being a sporting kind of guy, I also provided the opposing team with a nerf rocket launcher to "destroy"
    us with, but most preferred to do a blizzard or spray booth imitation on us, which, if you like gallons of white paint creating a froth, was great fun.
    In spite of the monsoon that hit there a week before, the field was in good shape with the possible exception of the trenches.
    What time were people thinking of getting there? Also, it would help if you identified who might want to borrow equipment as I may have limited space (a car) this time.

    I have my overalls, gloves and boots ready to go, so I am fine. I don't need to borrow a marker or helmet.

    Thanks!
