    Doing it with real walls, real armour and guys who look like real orcs would have been a lot more fun than nerf I expect.

    Obviously you've never seen any of the docos on TTT, specifically the bit about Helm's Deeps' 3 months of night shoots....

    Yeah being wet and miserable and dressed in pounds of armour and latex would kinda suck fro three months of night shoots- Although Viggo tried to keep spirts up the whole time!

    out of intrest Saintheart what group did u source out the $20 per head at cause the last time i went it was 70 per person and you still had to bye the rounds. i think it was something like $15 for 100 and $50 for 500. i think those figures are estimates, neway it ended up costing me like 140 bucks so if u could please pm me the info of that group it would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the indoor one in Malaga is pretty cheap and around that range. Someone I know goes there a lot. Personally I think an outdoor one would be more fun but I haven't tried either. I think indoor wouldn't be that much different from Zone 3.

    Only benifit for Indoor paintballing is 'speedball' which is obviously a very fast paced style of playing with less cover.
    Not very fun for amatures/people knew to the game.

    Well, here's the situation on the paintball front:

    Given the way the weather's been for the past couple of weeks (and the fact we're in winter) I'm thinking that it's a bit risky to try and organise Paintball for the next month or so.

    However: I have made a booking for twenty at Dark Zone, at the Southlands Shopping Centre, Burrendah Boulevard, Willetton for this Sunday, 19 June 2005[b/] from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. That's time enough for four games of half an hour each, at a cost of $27.00 per person for inclusion all four games.

    There's a couple of reasons I picked this venue and this time:

    (1) Dark Zone at Northbridge can't fit a group of 20 in at any reasonable time on Sunday otherwise;
    (2) If you (or whoever) have an Entertainment voucher book, it contains a voucher for Dark Zone that takes 25% off the price for 8 people playing the first game.
    (3) I can't remember if it's a COTS Sunday, but the time slot avoids COTS from what I can see;
    (4) Willetton's not unreachable (as far as I remember) to most folks; and
    (5) It's my birthday on 19 June 2005.

    So, I'm taking the first 20 people to confirm attendance at this date and time. In addition, I have a discount vouchers as mentioned above, so I've got spots for 7 other people on my ticket who'll pay 25% off the first game because they're coming in on my voucher, which should take the cost down by at least a couple of dollars.

    Give me a call on 0400 256 259 if you're up for this and want to book a spot, or PM, or post in here. Look forward to seeing everyone!
