Yesterday, I went paintballing. And it was MAD FUN, someof the most fun I've had in years.
In the morning, my girlfriend and I had to contend with the worst National Rail had to offer, a 15 minute delay on our first train meant we missed our connecting train at Worcester, and got to Kidderminster at 10.30, one hour late !! we had missed one game, which our team had lost.
Our team was made up of me, the wonderful girfriend, a group of my friends from Liverpool, and a friend of a friend got 6 of his mates and his grilfriend as well. Anyway, in the second game (my first), I was thrown staright into the thick of the action, fnding myself near one of the items we were meant to locate and return to base. I had 2 members of the other team in close proximity, trying to shoot me down. I felt several paintballs whizzing past me at 130 mph (so we were told) and hitting the tree I was hiding behind. Luckily, one of my team members took out one of them, and I managed to get the other one, picked up the item and made it back to base. And after returning it, my legs were shot terribly, but hey, I'd just gotten my team one point !! And after that game, we were back in the lead.
The other games were really cool, there was a really cool one, where we had to locate a yellow jacket and try and get it on a bridge, king of the hill, attacking an enemy base, defending the enemy base, it was mad fun !! ran out of paintballs (and cash) towards the end of the day, but I managed to catch up with some friends I hadn't seen in AGES, and had so much fun.
At the end of the day, we took our brusied and bloodied bodies home, with promises to do this again sometime !! It was great fun, and I'm looking to do it all over again.
Unfortunately, in the mad rush to get there, I left my camera in London, however, a friend took one, and I will get the pics tomorrow, and post them. These are from the paintball company's website, just to wet appetites.
And tomorrow, back to the boring world of computers.....
