*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

  • 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.

couldn't make it as parents were visiting last w/e.

if people are happy to come to schaffhausen, there's a paintball place just across the border in germany (jestetten) we can then have a bbq along the river, or at my place...

Probably same location, as we already know how to get there. But I'm searching for a more central location as well.

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

shame you can't squeeze it to the following weekend.

It was kinda hard to get good photos with our camera too NLee, the light was tricky but yours looked good on the other thread.

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.
