It’s a lot-tle late. I know. My apologies.

Snacks and drinks will be available. (And maybe cupcakes).

All welcome. We all play together and have a blast.

 

 

Discount Day : Festival Fun : 5th July 2-5pm

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.

Discount Day : June 7th 2-5pm : Destresser

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.

Discount Day : Sat May 24th, 2pm-5pm

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.

Pricing:

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.

Discount Day : Saturday 10 May 2-5pm

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.

Discount Day : Change of dates

April is really messing us around with the dates for the open game. We had planned to have a game this Saturday, but apparently that’s Grad, and since most of you are either on holiday, or will be partying it up with your Graduating friends, we’re moving the date. If anyone was really keen about this weekend, let us know by whatsapping/smsing 083 956 5973.

Next weekend is also out, because it’s Easter.

So the next open day will be Saturday April 26th, 2-5pm.

May will have two games. Saturday 10th May 2-5pm, and Saturday 24th May 2-5pm, just before swot week.

Discount Day : Bonus 22 March 2014

Here’s hoping I have the emailing system down now and you all received this email BEFORE the game this time. We know the 22nd is on a long weekend, but due to the Bathurst Agricultural Show (which is on the first weekend of April) we’re trying to hook you up with a bonus game now because we have to delay April’s game till after the holidays. So…

Game this Saturday afternoon 2-5pm

For those of you who joined us at the Societies Evening, please read all of the information below. And don’t skim it. It has everything you need to know about the club and playing with us. For those of you who didn’t receive this the first time around…Read it too. All information can be found on the Paintball Club Page later if you need it. For those of you who have already read it, skim the important bits, and read the P.S. at the end.

Welcome Newer Clublings of 2014!

Just so you have all the details we discussed the other night at sign-up…Make sure you read all the way to the end.

Signing up:

Sign up is FREE. Yes. FREE. No fees will be deducted from your student accounts, no random charges charged if you never play. You can sign up at any point in the year simply by going to the website and subscribing. So tell your friends. Anyone over the age of 10 can join. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the link provided at the bottom of the emails.

You only Pay IF you Play:

As we discussed at sign up : If you never join us for a game, paintball will cost you nothing. There is no obligation to play. If you decide to play, all you have to do is pay for the paintballs. All equipment is provided free of charge.

Paintballs Cost:

R15 per 50

R70 per 250

R130 per 500.

You can buy in bulk and share with friends, or just buy one bag and play one game.

How many do most people use, you ask? That all depends on your playing style. But budget on at least 50 paintballs per game. If you’re slightly more careful with how much you shoot, less of course. We generally play 3-5 games per afternoon. You don’t have to play all the games.

Can my friends join?

Of course! The more the merrier! The same costing applies. So warn them about the paintballs. You can even invite your friends to come along just to watch. We don’t mind. Bring snacks and a picnic blanket (and umbrellas if its a hot day) and chill out with us.

What do I need to bring?

Not much. We provide all the equipment, including jackets or overalls, chest protectors for the ladies, safety masks, free of charge. We do not, however, provide Comfortable, CLOSED, shoes. This is paintball, not a visit to the beach. Sandals and trenches do NOT mix. So make sure you’re properly prepared. Long pants are also a good idea. And a bottle of water or juice. NO ALCOHOL. We are NOT ALLOWED alcohol on the field, BY LAW. The clubhouse has a liquor license and is usually open after the games if you want to have a drink. (And they’re super cheap.)

I need a lift…

If anyone has a car and is willing to give other members a lift, please let us know. We may not be able to organise lifts for the first game because it’s happening so soon, but the second game should be better.

SECOND GAME

The second game of the year is on Saturday, 22nd March, from 2-5pm at the Albany Sports Field. Games will start at 2.30, so try not to be too late. There is a whole safety speech thing that gets done just before the first game (at 2.15) and if we have to repeat it a half dozen times, it cuts into the playing time. The last game will be played at around 4.30.

Directions:

African Street passed BP/Spar on your left. Passed the traffic circle. Over the speed hump. Turn Left into Henry Street. Go until the T-junction at the end of Henry Street. Turn Right into Florence Street then Left into the Albany Sports Club Parking Lot (all dirt road). Walk across the rugby/cricket field to our field with all the tyres. If we’re there, there will be a white kombi parked next to the safety netting.

Booking Equipment:

We have limited rental equipment. Only 25 kits are available, so if you’re coming please let us know. Via Email kent[@]gungho.co.za (remove the brackets), or SMS or Whatsapp 083 956 5973 or Facebook

Next Games:

There’s been a big call for more games to begin the year with, so we’ve re-organized the first games to the following dates, 2-5pm:

1st March (Pictures and Video coming soon!!!)

22nd March (This weekend – don’t miss it!)

5th April has been moved to 12 April because of the Bathurst Show.

Memories:

This year, we’re going to try to put together a video of each game. These will most probably be posted on YouTube and be available for download from the site later in the year. We’re also going to try to have an album for each game on Facebook where you can tag yourself and your friends and discuss the games and just generally get involved. We’ll keep you posted. Photo’s and Videos from the last club game will be uploaded in the next week.

We hope to see you there on Saturday.

P.S. 

We will be redesigning the field through the first half of this year. This is a slow process as it takes masses of man hours and we have to do it ourselves. That’s right. Our field is hand-built, by us, in our free time. (Haha, free time, what’s that?). We apologize in advance for the inconvenience this may cause. And if anyone is interested in getting involved, we’re planning our annual “Bunker Bash” which includes a braai and some drinks in thanks for your spade/saw wielding skills.

P.P.S.

This year we’re doing something a little different. We need to decide on new teams. The old Red Team/Blue Team flags are getting a little old. You can vote on our POLL.
