Ok, I thought it would be a good idea to have a general thread for CAPC. While I am sure there will still be threads for specific events, I thought it would be good to have a way to find like minded people who just want to get together and play some low key walk-on somewhere.
What is the Chicago Area Paintball Club, or CAPC. From the pump thread

Idealy we will have a big loose club and see teams form up inside of it... not that capc = one team or see it become a 'serious' tourney ball group.
Say the spyder kid or tippman guy starts getting good and he and a few 'club' guys want to form a team and go find bigger challenges... thats the goal, not elite-ism.
Just remember to keep the switch to the right mode... there is a big difference in playing like its for money or when it is for money... and when you are out with a mixed group for fun.
... Just please bear in mind what CAPC really is trying to do.
So in short, CAPC is all about having fun again.
The next post will be a loose calendar of upcoming formal dates, with links the specific dates once those threads are created.
Following that will be a list of historical dates and threads.
If anyone has information to add (dates/threads of past/upcoming events, other information to be added.) PM me.
Thanks, and have fun!
