Cool PAINTBALL IN JULY

im trying to arrange a day of paintball (@ my paintball site in the south - south meaning Bournemouth, aprrox 2.3hrs from burton 4 from manchester) ur prolly have 2 get a hotel/B&B if ur commin from man or further...

day will start @ 9:30 finish about 3:30

costs for the day are 20 quid this covers - Overalls, Goggles, Gun, Gas, Lunch + 100 balls

extra paint is 6 quid per 100 balls, but i'm gonna try and get it down 2 5p a ball.. (so what u say - but it does make a difference for ppl using alot of paint)

we have full flushing toilet facilites on-site

unsure of the exact date yet - but i'll try and book the day-in so we can play as Clan GO against who everelse is there..

please post on here if ur interested so i hav an idea of numbers

thanx

Having no idea of B&B Prices + how much paint you would consume...

I'm Interested but i need to find some mug who will give me a lift down from Liverpool....I'll just go and ask Dante *cough*

Depends if you are using a snigle fire or semi auto i think for paint - I only used 500 in a day. 100 in the first 20 minutes and i realised you hasd to pace yourself

Can you camp at this paintball site Bobster? The one in Halkyn N Wales had like a field for tents and caravans

k, expansion on prices...

average B&B is 35 a night

there are camp sites all over here so i'll get some prices for those..

as for paint... errr its as fast as u pull the trigger the guns we have on site are Semi auto so 5-6 shots a second.. paint u use is up2 u, i can use about 500-600 a game.. so 10 games u looking at 5000 paint x 5p a ball is 250 quid but if u shoot that much prolly get a discount down 2 4p a ball...

A few hundred quid for a days rolling about in the mud is a bit too much for me.
