    Food can be brought in, as we do every year.

    The place....Blast Camp

    Meetup times will come along shortly.

    Alas, with upcoming wedding plans and my budget at a negative, I won't be able to make it this time around.

    Jeez, I may be able to make this event if I dont get sent back to Florida, or as I have just found out today, France. (Dang people volunteer for these jobs, then drop out last second). So I am crossing my fingers that I get to go. Who else is planning on coming?

    Yeah - can't wait. This is the most fun event.

    If you have never tried, come. If I can do it, anyone can.

    I really want to make it. I'm in the process of switching part-time jobs right now. Once I'm settled into the new job, I'll try my darndest to get that day off work!

    This sucks. My cousin's wedding is that day. I think it's an evening wedding, but still not gonna happen.

    OK, I'm definitely in. I can take one passenger, and have recently acquired more plus sized camo for you big guys. If you can tell me who needs what, maybe I can cut down on the tonnage I usually haul to these things.
    Hope you're well, Hazzy.
    Yours in the 4z

    Don't forget to tell them you are with Chicago Force when you get there, and don't pay them. We reserved already, so pay me your fee.

    Can't wait!

    See you guys there tomorrow morning, don't forget, even if you are using your own equipment, you have to check in and sign a consent form. And don't forget to tell them you are with Chicago Force.

    Well, I sure missed all the old regulars, although the most brave and stalwart could not be kept away. I hope this isn't the end of CF paintball, since attendance was so small. It would be a shame for it to peter out like this. Some losses was involved for the organizer(s) who counted on ten people showing up, even though they bravely soldiered on through the hail of paintballs and the hemorrhaging of their finances uncomplainingly.
    So you summer soldiers and sunshine patriots who said you were coming should be ashamed of yourselves. But, to accommodate you, we can continue this thread so you can pose your feeble excuses and sniveling.
    Now, what are you going to do when you have to face the real Imperials in life?

    Real life sometimes gets in the way of fun as was the case for many of us who did not make it out. Maybe we need to cut this event to once a year?

    Well, I have 2 new beautiful bruises to show for my fun day of paintball. Thanks to Lionel for the outfitting, as usual. I think all who did come had a great time.

    For those of you who missed it - try next time. It's a blast!

    Number of times shot it the head: 1
    Number of head shots delt out: 2

    Octagon, while always cool, was a total mud bog in the building. At one point, as I switched between shooting out the door and window, I actually got stuck. A little nerve wracking, as I was smack in the middle of the doorway when this happened, but I managed to pull out without losing my boot. :)

    At one point, both Lionel and I were both out in the open, no cover, shooting at each other. It would have turned out better if I didn't get it in the back from friendly fire :D
