NYC Player Connection and Carpool Thread

All-

It feels like a lot of NYC players are desperate for a forum to connect and share contact information for carpooling to fields/events. If you are a player in the 5 boroughs that wants to connect and play with NYC players, let everybody know by posting your info in the forum below:

- Do you have a car and are looking for other players to join you for company and reducing gas/tolls? Or are you a NYC baller without a car that is looking for rides to fields/events?
- What borough are you in?
- More of an Airball/PSP guy or Woods/Scenario type?
- How often do you typically play and where?

It would be great to build up our NYC community! I hope you guys agree!

-Nate

I'll kick this off:

- Been in NYC for 4 years and out of the game for 8, but just updated my gear and ready to play again

- Need a Ride - I have no car and am looking for a group of players with a ride to carpool with regularly (Certainly willing to split gas/tolls evenly)

- Also open to renting a car with a group of 4-5 guys that wanna play and splitting those costs

- More of an Airball player than woods (but enjoy the occasional rec/scenario scene)

- Looking to pay 1x-2x a month. Typically on Sundays, and open to any decent field within a reasonable drive!

Post below if you want to join the community or feel free to PM me

-Nate

I live in Queens (Ridgewood) and I've been here for about a year.

I think I'm getting a zipcar membership soon so I'll be able drive.

I'm more interested in airball but I've also played a lot of woodsball and would be down to play occasionally.

I have weekends free and I'd like to play at least once or twice a month.

Have a car and looking to split tolls and gas.

- Are you a NYC baller without a car that is looking for rides to fields/events?

Well I have a car that can be used to drive that we can rotate if needed.

- Where do you typically play and how often?*
Haven't played much, which is about one or twice a year with a break due to deployment. I'm looking to play more often though as I just bought my first gear. I played cousins in Riverhead and Skimish in PA.

- More of an Airball/PSP guy or Woods/Scenario type?

I prefer Woods hands down and mostly looking for woods.

Gents,

Would be cool to get a bunch of guys and girls together to play every once and while - just to enjoy ourselves. NOT to get punished or to light other newbies up and boast about it - that is what I hate about some fields that allow more experienced or "team" players do. What is the fun in not mixing up players then crushing newer players that are at 3 levels below your game? I always wanted to get people together just to play and have FUN as well as introduce new players into the game. Great way to start this Nate!

Here are my answers...

- Do you have a car and are looking for other players to join you for company and reducing gas/tolls?
Yes I have a vehicle and can carpool.

- Where do you typically play and how often?
I haven't played in 10 years and just started to this summer. Played a few times the last 2-3 months at Paintball Arena on LI before they closed end of July and ABC Paintball in NNJ.

- More of an Airball/PSP guy or Woods/Scenario type?
I am open to playing both. Although, Speedball or Airball is more favored by me most of the time.

Additional info - have been playing on and off for almost 20 years but never competitively. Self proclaimed "Gun Whore" addict. First high end marker - Eclipse Smarts Parts Shocker EURORA (aka to some as "oil slick" finish) - this is the shoe box Shocker and I still have it! Love the game just not some of the characters that play the game. Always looking to help newbies to grow this sport.

Looking fwd to meeting and playing with some of you on a field. We can start close - Staten Island Cousin's speedball field? I have never been there but hear its a bare bones facility and only offers small wooded field and one speedball field, but its hella close and easy. I am trying to set up a group to play at ABC Paintball (BYOP for the woods fields) in NNJ sometime in mid-end of September as well - I can let you guys know when the date is decided.

I have subscribed to this thread - hope we keep this going and meet some good peeps.

Have you decided on field? I'm partial to Riverhead as I heard the fields in SI doesn't compare to Riverhead. That and I was going to go Sunday especially since I made a thread about it.

I'll be free this labor day Monday Sept 1st. - Let's head to Cousin's Riverhead, LI (1.5+ hour drive from Manhattan). Whomever would like to join that day let us know. Carpool pick up points, arrangements, and times to be determined.

SO FAR FOR COUSIN'S LABOR DAY FREE ADMISSION DAY WE HAVE...
1. Will Fong - Driving from Brooklyn
2. Viper Pilot - Driving from Manhattan with available seats
3. Oford - Needs ride & Will Fong can provide
4. Bigpuertorican88 + 1 - Driving from SI with 1 free seat. Needs loaner tank - Willfong maybe able to loan.
5. Peskymonkey - Driving from Brooklyn with available seats

http://www.cousinspaintball.com/pdf/waiverform.pdf

I've Been watching the weather forecast the last few days for Monday and they continue to call for rain so in case it does we can hit HiVelocity Indoor on Long Island in Bay Shore instead as I just noticed they have free admission also!
http://hvpaintball.com/labor-day-hours-specials/

Even if it rains at least we now have a Plan B.

I will text everyone tonight and 8am to confirm weather and plan A or Plan B...
For plan A barring bad weather - Shall we all meet at 10am at the Cousins Calverton parking lot an park off to the side or in rear together. I will be driving a Black Chevy Colorado pickup truck.

Plan B when bad weather is eminent then well meet at 12 noon at HiVelocity Bayshore Indoor.

Hey Willfong,

As long as it doesn't fall on the 20th or 21st, Count me in for your ABC Paintball BYOP group in September. I may also bring a friend along, if his schedule allows it.

Maybe Bandito, Viper, and Ackon will be able to join too.

Nate
