*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.

Alright party people, it's soon time to blast each other's heads off. To my surprise, simonminisale decided to attend a poodle show instead of joining us on the shootage. Priorities, priorities I tell ya...

If the place is still Schänis I can suggest to use the BBQ Anlage at the public park in Walenstadt. It's a 15/20min drive from Schänis towards the other end of the Walensee. It's family friendly (whoever wants his family to join the group can safely bring children as there are plenty of park games to play with), clean and free. I don't know if there is a similar place in Weesen, which is the city at the West end of the lake, closer to Schänis.

Oh the Goose is back in da game! Wicked!

Too bad I can't make it, would've been a close call as to who to take out first between you and @kevlegs.

UTH, here is the address:
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...34482%20target=

The place is called Paintball Arena..and if lost, simply ask somebody. The village isn't all too big and most people know the venue.

Last time we payed 72Chf for 1.5h of game time. This included everything from helmet to overall, protection, guns and bullets. Wear light clothes and maybe bring along spare shoes, as they tend to get dirty from the paint.

Re: Paintball (or the shoot your EF buddies) Event II

SBB gets me there with the least fuss for 11:55
So I may be a few minutes late getting to the venue...

Or is it worth getting a 7 seater from Mobility - anyone in for that ?
