^^Agreed and seconded-ed-ed....

There are so many more elements to the game. I think that whatever you're looking for--from drinking buddies and awesome "war stories" to adventure to tactical thinking, problem solving or just spraying tons of paint--you'll find it on the scenario field!
That really sums it up in my book. I do not want to restart the war over speedball and scenario. Both have their place in the world. It is like two sides of the same coin and frankly, one cannot really survive without the other. But for me, scenario is the ticket and will be something I will be involved in until they put me in the ground.

Long live scenario paintball!
I have to agree 100%. I took my xGf out on a speedball field first. She never came back to play. I took my current gf to a scenario 1st, and now shes out there with me every saturday playing. Scenarios are definatly the way to go. Better people to be around with, more fun, more honesty. Dont get me wrong though, theres nothign better then showing up to the speedball field in Camos and doing some ownage.

Now back to our regularly scheduled paintball discussion...

I understand Chuck said they will have a trailor with 12 or so shower stalls with pull chain type shower heads and hot water. Now if we can get him to put in those porta sinks mentioned earlier by someone here that would be great...
I understand hot basic training. Before basic lived in Southern Oklahoma. Basic was at Ft. Sill June & July. Uniform could walk away after your took it off boots and shirts always had salt lines.

Showers even portable showers would make a huge diffence to most fields. I know it would get my boss to play more often. She said after one look at me after Last spring Castle if there is a shower on site she would go. To me a day of great paintball is worth the waiting thru the 2 hour drive home.

Basic In Fort Benning Georgia with the 3rd ID. Luckily we didnt really have to much of a heat problem. Was pretty dam cold in Georgia. Sept - December. Sucked having to do drills at 3am because some firewatch couldnt remember the headcount. Dont even get me started on the latrine detail

I encountered fencing because I liked combat sports. Then I found paintball.
Yeah, I did some fencing in College. Came back with 2 bronse medals. My Freshman year. Then that College life kicked in and I ended up selling my stuff. What style of fencing (foil, epee or sabre)? I've been thinking of going back to it sometime in the future.

Barney: foil was my favorite since I have pretty long arms and could use it to my advantage on lunges. epee was my second favorite.


Back on to the whole toilet/shower thing. I think it's starting to become a thread of it's own. Would one of you want to start a thread about it.

We are starting to get away from the orinial discussion topics of how and why we think the game is important.

I think that it shows the young new players and the public. That this is a type of paintball that encourages the following.
1. Sportsmanship..(We hate the idea of cheating and wiping off a hit )
2. Team work....(JSOC and GWM are good examples of that. )
3. Co-operation ( Look at all the events that teams ref for fields at big games. )
4. Good some what clean fun...
