Sweet! Are you allowing Americans to tag along by any chance? I'm sure that isn't anywhere a problem on your behalf. I need some vacation in so just seeing what you all have in store for us. Would love to visit Greece while I'm there for the event!

Is this a side activity that anybody we can sign up for? I'm assuming this is for scuba diving and I have like ZERO scuba diving experience so I might not be qualified for this but very interested in trying.

This is the island you will be starting on. Attack boats will leave from the far side in waves and land on the beach, the first squads to hit the beach will be under fire as soon as you touch down, you will get wet, it will be intense.


This is the view of the island and beach landing area, the building you can see to the left is our first objective


There are quite a few buildings dotted around the base, many have tunnels leading out to silos or other buildings


Entrance to one of the tunnel systems


Network of tunnels

We're all gonna gang up on the Germans*.

Come over, it'll be a blast, 2 days of paintball, 5 days of sun and beer and you get to see some old ruins on the way home. Athens, it's even older than Joan Rivers**.





*(not really)
**(probably)

Don't forget that includes the flight from the UK to Greece, it may be easier to fly into Athens from the States? might save some cash for you.

Martello is in charge of everything, drop him a pm if you need any more info.

The 680 cost is for uk players.
I know of 2 guys coming from the states.
Ticket price is 100€ for 2 days. The flights to Athens etc is up to you
Could cost more or could cost less. Depends on how long you want to stay etc

We've got two for sure going, and a third potential (He's AWOL in Thailand right now, so you know how that goes )

We will be flying into Athens from Los Angeles on the 12th.
On the 16th we'll hop on a ferry to Aegina Island.
Dive day? Maybe.
Drink day? Definitely.
We're staying at the Klonos Hotel the 16th through the 20th.

The Argent members going are all divers out here in Calif already,so Neptune Squad is where we're heading.
I'm sure this game will kick *** either way! DO NOT let being a non-diver sway you. (The dive will be less than an hour. Done.)
If you are interested, and on the fence, at least you know there will be other players from America. You are free to roll with Argent if you'd like.

I've traveled all over playing paintball, and one thing remains common worldwide:
Scenario players are all pretty much cut from the same loin cloth. Languages differ, but scenario paintball is universal.
You will have a blast!
You will make friends! (I rolled with Martello in Russia last year.)
ANY American who wants to do something totally cool that'll make memories that last a lifetime is free to tag along with Argent Force as we get hammered on Bloody Mary's on a flight to Athens!!

We're at:
Argent Force.com

Sling Paint Eternally,
ODell
