Almost a year ago, many of us lost someone very close to our hearts. Many of you know Jacob Espindola, he was a very dedicated baller, always out at the fields on sunday. Jacob was one of the best snake players in Northern California. Unfortunately, on January 12, 2007, Jacob had a terrible accident, being a passenger to a fatal car accident in Antioch, CA. For more information on the accident, you can read this article written by Contra Costa Times.

Jacob was a very respected paintballer, and in remembrance of him, we would like to host a play day for him. This will be the 2nd Annual Play Day. It will be Saturday, January 12th at Capital Edge Paintball Park in Elk Grove, Ca. The day should be a relaxed and fun day out on the field, playing for the love of paintball, just like Jacob would like us to do! We would like to invite anyone to come out, any skill level, even if you didn't know jacob, its going to be a really fun day! We will also have sweatbands for purchase, with several colors, all embroidered "JME".
