Here's a random question which I guess is relevant... I've been told (and correct me if I'm wrong) that the main reason Joy have become so good is because of the sheer amount of training they do. Something like three nights a week on reball and then paint trainings every second weekend, or something.

Here in NZ I was with the most trainingest (;p) team for a while - we did about 2 hours a week of reball training on average and monthlyish all day paint trainings. That's highly unusual in NZ though and probably explains why the team were winning national events a lot at the time. Since our reball place closed down the team have stopped winning anywhere near as much.

So how much do Nexus train, and do you see a direct relationship between time spent training and winningness?

The Joy success is because in Sweeden they eat all the time reindeer meat, they made reindeer meatballs, reindeer milkshakes, reindeer pasta salads, reindeer everything...

If you want to try REINDEER

Nexus train twice a month and 3 times in the month before an event which we usually try and make a scrimmage and another team. It's not a lot in the grand scheme of things but it is what our paint allocation will allow.

The more you train the better you become and the better you are the more chance you have of winning, so there is definitely a direct correlation between training and winning. You have to train the right way though!

As for JOY. They are good because they have a good training regime, the players have been together for a long long time and they have a great coach with a great head on his shoulders. In short, they have the complete package.

Oh and thanks for the reindeer recipe, I'll be sure to try that one out...

No way man, reindeer meat has been used as a performance enhancing food since ancient times! Powerade actually has some highly refined reindeer extracts in it.

Have to check on the laws regarding import and export of High Energy Reindeer.

My opinion on Joys success is the amount of play time they get. They come here and play US events as well as Millennium series events and other events out your way. They practice 3 times a week then when there not all practicing their playing events all over the world playing the top of every game. Thats just what I think.

It's bike fork lube. Extremely good for Ego rams. You're right about shipping and liquids. My mum couldn't even ship over some Lucozade for me (god I miss that stuff).

Stab in the dark here, but do any of you know of any Union Jack markers? I've asked around but no one's ever seen one over this side of the pond (except for PE who claimed 5 08 Egos were made but never sold).
