&&& Chicago Area Paintball Club -- General Thread &&&


Ok, I thought it would be a good idea to have a general thread for CAPC. While I am sure there will still be threads for specific events, I thought it would be good to have a way to find like minded people who just want to get together and play some low key walk-on somewhere.

What is the Chicago Area Paintball Club, or CAPC. From the pump thread, some parts removed, others emphasized :

Idealy we will have a big loose club and see teams form up inside of it... not that capc = one team or see it become a 'serious' tourney ball group.
Say the spyder kid or tippman guy starts getting good and he and a few 'club' guys want to form a team and go find bigger challenges... thats the goal, not elite-ism.

Just remember to keep the switch to the right mode... there is a big difference in playing like its for money or when it is for money... and when you are out with a mixed group for fun.

... Just please bear in mind what CAPC really is trying to do.
So in short, CAPC is all about having fun again.

The next post will be a loose calendar of upcoming formal dates, with links the specific dates once those threads are created.

Following that will be a list of historical dates and threads.

If anyone has information to add (dates/threads of past/upcoming events, other information to be added.) PM me.

Thanks, and have fun!

Calendar

July 12th, 2009 -- CPX -- A bunch of people have memberships, free passes, and coupons for paint to make for a fairly cheap day at one of the most unique fields in the country. All experience levels welcome, most will be playing with pumps/mechs, with a couple electros thrown in with the newbies.

July 26th, 2009 -- The Badlandz -- Cockers only day Alot of fields are now organizing days around specialized niches, pump only days being the most frequent. This one is a throw back to the mid 90s - early 00s, AutoCocker only games on old school 10 man fields. Should be a good day, with some real rare markers coming out of the closets.

Tentative:
Saturday, August 15th, OP

... to be updated as more information becomes available.

Ok there are a couple of pump weekends coming up (@ FunTime on the 26th and tentatively a CAPC pump day on the 2nd), but I need to knock some cobwebs off of my other gear as well...

So I'm thinking of playing mech/electro hopperball somewhere on the 19th (next Sunday). Thoughts?

So my basement project is progressing more slowly than I thought. Still trying to master mudding.

It sounds like 'sam's' isn't going to be ready in time... plus the wife should be popping out the kid @ somepoint between now and may 16th.

But the June 6th @ fox is definately still a go.

The main idea here is just to get the fun back in the game. The actual organized meetings tend to revolve around pump play for the regulars and semis for people that are playing for the first couple of times.

Otherwise my intent was for this thread for people, who want to have some laid back fun, post where they were playing so like minded people could find them.

You aren't going to reanno the twister are you? I would be very afraid of someone screwing that up. I really wish I didn't ever get rid of my CF Twister.
