In Utah and Italy we had some good off topic threads going so I thought, "Why not bring that idea to North Carolina?" How's everyone doing?

Good idea! Let's get this going for real. I play out of PBC Rockhill for practices and Glory Road paintball for rec/casual.

I normally play at PBC Rock Hill or Glory Road but I do sometimes make the drive out to PBC Greensboro or Black River. I used to love going to Black Ops but like you said it died out and the 3+ hour drive isn't worth it to me.

Yea I would say the Charlotte/Rock hill area is usually pretty active. I used to play at PBC Greensboro a few years ago and that was the most active field in the area. Not sure if that's still the case now or not.

I just can't justify the drive out there to my wife. She already thinks I focus too much on paintball as it is. I would like some better and different competition though.

If you slowly introduce the drive to her, she will get used to it. That's what I did to mine **** now we will be driving 8+ hours to practice in other states.

Ha I don't know how you did that. I took her to Jacksonville, NC to play a 3 man tournament and she thought I was nuts for going that far. I play every weekend pretty much so driving over an hour every time each way would be a pain

NuNu - I think we played together back in the TC / BR Boyz days (I'm getting old too)

Jake - I can usually get a handful of players together for speedball, just post up when you guys are practicing. We like the Black Ops field a lot.

Last CFOA of 2013 I walked off the field and called it quits after 13 years of on and off tournament play and just never could get into woodsball, hadnt held a gun or been to a field since then. Kinda missing it but at 42 I'm simply unable to keep up with the youngsters nowadays. Been thinking of taking up permanent reffing but hadn't made my mind up yet

Funny. I just started playing again after a 10 yr break. I picked it up again in October and went almost straight out and got new gear. Game has changed a bit but recball is still a lot of fun. My son is only 10 mos old now so I'm looking forward to playing with him one day

Never cared for it much either, I'm a spray and pray, accuracy by volume kinda guy. I never could hit much but just watching paint come out at 15.4 (my favorite time in the sport) made my giggle like a school girl 😉

I also took a break but got back into it for my son but unfortunately he didn't care for the sport much. My wife went with us a few times and got hooked so the last 2 years of tourney ball was strictly for her. Sure I enjoyed it but it was done for her mostly.
