*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.

What about postponing the event for a week or so to get more people to join and organise transportation?
By the way, I would really like for you to come....ya know, so I could reward you colorfully for flouncing the last time.

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.
They have a web site...

http://www.paintball-arena.ch

Seems you get overalls ?

Yes and you also get a torso protetion as well as gloves and a helmet thingy.
Make sure to bring a change of shoes as otherwise, you'll get your car dirty. Last time, I made sure to bring shorts and a tshirt in order to be more comfortable while playing.


Also, I suggest we scrap the BBQ and do it the next time. Some are venturing off to KFC afterwards...and I couldn't find a place to grill. We can always head for a drink afterwards, if that's ok with everybody.

ps: To avoid getting Switzerlanded with refreshing beverages while shooting your fellow EFer make sure to bring some drinks from home. If I remember correctly, they charged 9chf for a soda by the playing field.

Sounds good, I'll try to remember that... already drunk, will need quite a few sodas/waters to get me going tomorrow.

It was. Those no good young whipper snappers were easy peasy.

I was hoping for a challenge, but had fun anyway.

It was 5-1 in the end ?
