Besides.....

Hey I know about Dday and cant go there this year cause im doing something but does Skirmish always have atleast 300 people on the weekends? Or super sized groups? Because i want to go when its really busy. And whats the next big game there in June May or April. Any time before school starts in the august I just cant go because thats my sissters wedding and yeah. Of course im going to bring my own paint though.

well Vasha, even if they have 300+ players on a weekend, you would not be able to play against all 300, only the other people in your walkon group, which would probably max out around 60 people give or take a few.

If you want to play a smaller scenario try Stalingrad in March at skirmish. There will be between 1000 to 2000 players there for an 8 hour game.

You can pay $77/case by grabbing a group of people willing to buy 12 total. Very easy to do.

If you don't want to buy their paint, though, I'd suggest either not coming or playing in a role where you don't have to shoot.

then dont play there. Try out Castle Conquest at EMR on april 27th/28th. roughly 1000+ players, best game ever. And only 80 a case for marbs (one of best paints made)

go to skirmish on a half price paint day... $50 a case. stock up and it's good for a year. go to skirmish.com for which weekends.

they also have byog - bring your own gun and play for free (no field fees) or young gunz weekends where anyone under 18 pays a reduced rate based on their age (like 13 yr old pays only $13).

other good events in the spring and summer -- the "Castle Nights" game they run about once a month. usually over a hundred people and you play Dye castle, tippy castle and the alamo field all night (each team gets a castle as their base). when it gets dark, they fire up the generators and you get some fun night play.

Yeah this game is expected to have some of the top players and teams playing. Same one you'll run into at Skirmish and a couple from EMR. Just so you know most of us will go to either of these fields plus Westpoint and pay these high and low prices. It's mostly about the people and the game. As most of us feel that the price is worth the company and the people.

Your right Barney, its all about the people and the fun not the cost of anything. The after the game time is almost as much fun as the game itself. See ya soon Barney have a great Christmas and a Happy paint ball new year.

Yeah, my friend said something about the staff confiscating his gun a few years back for not using Skirmish paint. They gave it back to him after he went to reclaim it, but he was barred from playing again for the rest of the day.

Vasha, Skirmish has not one, but several security check-points in which they check personal belongings for non-Skirmish paint. If you're found on a field or the shooting ranges with non-Skirmish paint, they punt you without a refund! Don't take your chences on this... trust me!

So you're saying we can't use old non-field paint to chrono and to test and fix our markers at the target range?

He's right Blue beast. This is also a great place to meet and play. Especially if you have a name like "Blue Beast".

I use old non event paint for Chrono all the time. I usually throw about 20-30 rounds in the hopper, shoot off about 10-15 at chrono,and dump the rest. Then i take out the ziploc with my normal hopper amount of event paint and start a blastin.

I do the same thing, that's why I was wondering? But I do shoot the field paint also to get an idea how it shoots out of the marker and barrel. My have to change an insert.
