Cricket? Anyway, it looks like a 40% chance of rain down there for Sunday. It's been happening in bursts on the prairie when it does rain so we should have decent playing windows. Also, I scouted Scott's Grove yesterday. It looks great! Not soggy or swampy. There was a hitchhiker that had been camped out there for 4-5 days and he said there hadn't been any rain despite what the weather service has been telling me. Temps should be in the 60's.

We have 8 for sure and 2-3 possibles. I'm coming down later today to fill tanks and get a couple more cases of paint.

If you guys need more info or directions let me know

Oh yeah and we'll have to set some formal rules. These guys have a few different rules but sounds like they are willing to play traditionally. A couple of these guys are insane and think they should only have to wear ballistic proof glasses. At first I had a real problem playing with them because of that, but that's inbreeding for you. lol They may be persuaded to wear masks.

Well, if they want to lose an eye or swallow a paintball, that's their problem. I think we'll probably call you the night before to see how things are actually looking before we drive up.

Most of these guys are using Co2, right? Are 2 of the big tanks going to be enough?

haha nice that reminds me of a game I played back in the day. This dude was running around with a talon ghost wearing a pair of ski goggles. The really funny part was this dude was so big he couldn't really hide behind trees. That reminds me I should go find a Talon they make "great" loaner, plus they are fun to shoot out people who think the gun makes the player.

Anyways back on topic, with all of this strange weather I'll grab my cheapo rain canopy thing. Anyways I'm not to worried about the weather, I have a mech or 3.

the weather has definitely been hit or miss. currently we are supposed to have 50% chance and cloudy skys. it's mostly sunny. at 10 am it could rain for 5 minutes. and then just be mostly cloudy with no rain the rest of the day. it could stay mostly clear until 9 pm and then dump.

because of the weather i'll be checking out the grove again tomorrow. maybe call me saturday evening.

freakin' northwest

Man that's a nice shot. I've been hit in the grill too many times to do something stupid like only wearing goggles.

I'll give you a ring tomorrow night.

I've actually seen a closer to disaster shot. He took the shot right to the bridge of the nose. To the left or right half an inch and he would have been blind. There used to be a sticky on AO that was a story about a guy who didn't wear a mask, and took one to the eye wearing aviators. They didn't help.

Just got back from checking Scott's Grove again. It looked like it had rained overnight. Our spot was still decently dry and playable. we spent four hours down there and it stayed partly to mostly clear despite the forecast. I think we'll be good to go tomorrow.

We got the air and everything. We plan on leaving here at 9:30, so however long it takes to get there is when we'll be showing up.

Anybody who is interested in the Kooskia trip and hasn't talked to either Allen or I we are meeting up at 9am TOMORROW at URM in Lewiston and leaving at 9:30. If you would like to go but don't want to make the drive there should be a couple seats open, shoot me a pm with a phone number and I will get back to you. I will be monitoring my email until we leave.

Thanks to everyone who came out yesterday, it was good. Next time lets plan on something a ... um ... little faster. We did have a few that said "call us next time you setup a speed ball game", though they came from the Lewiston camp.

I'll talk to Marty hopefully today when I take the bulk tanks back. Maybe we can setup a glue the floppy bunks back together day, and discuss where we can setup a community field for now. I know a place in Gifford that may work, I just need to call ahead and check to see if that will work.

I would also like to brag a bit Allen and I kept 4 plus us going all day with all the extra gear we brought (not counting what we left at home) while have several breakdowns.

Yes, we're cool like that. Gotta keep the sport growing some how. Can't expect new players to go out and by stuff without knowing if they'll have fun.

Right you are gents. 19 players!! It was a great time. Lots of people trying it out from Grangeville as well. And yes, a few from here also expressed interest in speedball.

We've got renewed interest in paintball from around the region. Let's make it happen people!

Please let me know what I can do to help with getting things going again.

I think the best thing we can do right now to get people involved. Show Marty that it is worth the time and effort to get things rolling again. We are going for community ball at this time so lets get the community part going again. Point people back here or the FTW forum, though it needs some mod work done I wonder who three competent mods could be?

I'm headed up to drop off tanks at 5 will let you know more after I get back.

I think last time I stepped into the FTW forum there was spam everywhere.

Oh it's horrible, no mod action has been taken forever. It is like "the bush" it looks like it would be a good place to hide but there is a giant turd keeping everyone out of it. Yea just start sending people here or we can create a new thread like Central ID Community Paintball or something. But honestly there is no need to change.
