Its that time of the year again.
The last game.
To those of you about to write exams : GOOD LUCK!
To those of you busy writing exams : TAKE BREAKS!
To those of you finished writing exams : You have NO excuse not to be there this Saturday
To those of you busy working : Shame, you need a paintball day. It’ll make you feel better.
Come visit. Even if you haven’t got cash to play, you can always cheer. Bring camping chairs, bring a picnic, go to the club with us afterwards. Whatever. Just come have a break.
And everybody…rub every lucky thing you own so we have FANTASTIC weather this weekend.
Game On, Paintball Peeps
This ones a long one. Bear with me.
Heads up about the Discount Day next month. Because of the Grahamstown Flower Festival (which is on the weekend of the 1st-2nd November), and the fact that we will be attending it because I (Siobhan) have a stand at the craft market (this year at the monument), the game will be on the second Saturday, 8th November. Normal rules apply. This will be our last discount day of the year, unless there are peeps still here in December who want to play.
It will also (hopefully) be the last day we play with the field as it is because we’re planning to redesign over the Christmas holidays and relaunch in 2015 to celebrate our 9 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! If anyone has any ideas or suggestions or wants to join us for our Bunker Bash (which includes a braai and sometimes power tools) and is hanging around over December, just let us know, even if you don’t use the power tools company is always welcomed.
Photos and Video
I’ve had a very rough year. (Mostly including waking up on Friday and realizing I managed to skip Monday through Thursday somehow – I’m sure most of you can relate). Videos and Photos (of which there are quite a few – and some REALLY funny ones) will be posted soon. Editing takes FOREVER apparently.
It’s coming up to the end of the year. A lot of you will be leaving Grahamstown soon. Should you, for any reason, no longer wish to receive this email, just click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. Google Feedburner will ask you to confirm. Once you click confirm you will never hear from us again. Just, maybe wait until after the photos and videos have been done so you don’t miss the update. You may, of course, resubscribe at any point simply by going to our site, putting your email in the newsletter box and clicking confirm in the email Feedburner sends you.
Don’t forget to diarize the

Discount Day this weekend. 2-5pm.
Rumour is we may have a dive cyl available for those who use air for their markers.
Cross fingers we have good weather.
And if anyone knows Farai and Tapiwa (who had his birthday party with us during boat races). Please tell them to come pay us. We don’t appreciate being stolen from.
We’re still unpacking them, but we have a BIG BOY REVIVAL, 2 x GOMOTO FREEDOMS, 1 x BASHAN XPLODE 125, and a JONWAY ACTIVA, sitting in boxes on our floor. All brand new. Prices, specs and photos by the end of the week, if the video editing for the paintball goes according to plan.
Happy Spring Day everyone! The weather for Saturday is looking good.
Are you joining us for the discount day?
All friends welcome as usual. Just let us know if you’re bringing more than 5 people.
It’s a lot-tle late. I know. My apologies.
Game this Saturday 2-5pm. Regular discount prices apply. R15 per 50. R130 per 500.
Snacks and drinks will be available. (And maybe cupcakes).
All welcome. We all play together and have a blast.
This is just a heads up that we are still having a game on Saturday the 5th of July from 2-5pm.
Normal rules apply. Only pay for the paintballs. Gas is free if you use our rental markers, which are also free on discount days.
Plus, this is the first weekend of festival, so get your significant other to give you the afternoon off by slipping a few festival funds their way and come join us. This is an awesome opportunity for you to invite friends from out of town and make a day of it. The club should also be open if you want to stick around for some drinks afterwards.
You read right. Game this Saturday. Exam Destresser. The next game after this is July 5th. Please remember this is a day you can come and meet other players, have a great time out in the sun, and just live a life of paintball happiness. We all play together, experienced and amateur alike. You can join for one game or all five. Bring a picnic blanket with and chill with friends. Whatever. Chips, Chocolates, Cooldrinks all available too.
Hope you’ve noticed the change in title. Discount Day just sounds SOOOO much better than “Club Day”, and fits in a lot better with our “Just Have Fun” policy.
As you can see, the next Discount Day is this Saturday, May 24th, 2pm-5pm. This is the LAST game before exams. Everyone is welcome, as always. Remember, we’re pretty chilled about who comes. You can even invite friends who just want to cheer. But no large groups. 8 people max. We have limited rental equipment until the new stuff arrives in July. And no alcohol.
Paintballs: R15 for 50, R130 for 500, R480 for 2000. You can buy as a group and share. Field paint only. R50 corkage if you bring your own paintballs.
There is no charge for rental equipment.
If you have your own equipment, Gas fills are R1.50 per ounce just to cover the cost of the gas.
If you and your friends are interested in the proposed 7th of June game during exams, please let us know as soon as possible. You can contact us via email, facebook, whatsapp 083 956 5973 or landline. Otherwise, we’re taking the day off to work on the field.
Fingers crossed, the new chest protectors, theme teams, and flags will be finished and here. It just didn’t happen for the last Discount Day. There’s a lot happening at the moment and small changes are being done to the field every week. (Just a heads up, there may be a downed ‘helicopter’ – not a real one – on the tyre field one of these days)
Due to fantastic feedback, Cool drinks, chips and chocolates will all be available again.
Don’t forget the game this Saturday 10 May. 2-5pm as usual.
Full changes to the field set to be finished in time for 3rd term.
Our brand new teams have been decided. When you come to play, you can choose between “Game of Thrones” or “Walking Dead”.
Remember, anyone can join us. Even if they don’t want to play. Just bring a blanket and chill out on the grass.
Chips, chocolates and cooldrinks will be available.
The next game will be on May 24th, just before o-week. If anyone is interested in having a game during exams, just drop us an email.
