*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.

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

Attachment 30496


Or is it worth getting a 7 seater from Mobility - anyone in for that ?
I'm down with mobility...as I would need a ride as well.

Sorry to have to bail last minute, but E hurt his back and is in quite a lot of pain. So, no paintball for him tomorrow. Maybe next time. Have fun on Saturday everyone!

Hi

I've never done paintball before, but I was curious do you guys think it'd be fun enough with this small number of people RSVP'ed yes ? I mean shouldn't there be at least a dozen ?

As of right now, I really don't know If I'll be in Zurich tomorrow or not (50%-50% since its out of my hands !) but also considering the expenses and everything I'd prefer to join when there's a larger crowd to be honest with you.
In any case I'll know by this afternoon if I can join. hope by then a dozen more have RSVP'ed yes ..

Can you get to Balgrist (T11/S18) for 10.30 ? WIll be picking up CJ after Paintballing and going straight to Carrefour / KFC afterwards, so can drop you back at Balgrist or you can continue on in our car and free up your space in another ?

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

What about postponing the event for a week or so to get more people to join and organise transportation?

Can't do that, as the court is reserved and next week I won't have time. We can't be all leisure loving, ponytail wearing beach bums like you.
