*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Schänen
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: at the Paintball venue

I've received specific instructions from a higher power to set up another Paintball event. The last one was fun and we were all able to walk away (with minor bruises).

I suggest we go a little earlier this time and do a BBQ afterwards. If a kind soul, who's familiar with he area, could give us some sound advice on where an adequate spot for a BBQ is.....it would be greatly appreciated.

Advice for newcomers:
Bring spare clothes (you'll be sweaty and full of paint)
Bring own drink (some of us got Switzerlanded on the drinks)
RSVP'd Yes: 6 (5 members and 1 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (2 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 6
  • ximix - On the KFC Quest
  • Femme T - Away in foreign lands
  • Golfprostew - Would love to join in. Unfortunately weekends are a no no, maybe I can come to the after party?
  • nlee24 - bummer... E hurt his back. :(
  • jacek - Fully booked for tennis tournament this weekend - no luck to shoot ya brethren :(
  • Pit - sorry, next time, we wanted to came, but my friends are free only afternoon.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

I thought you were hiking in Grindelwald that day. If you change the Location to Schänis people might actually find it on the map. I suggest DB's garden for the BBQ, should be nearby.
smarta**. Schnänis Schänen...same thing!! It's out in the boonies.
