BioWars at Skirmish Paintball Field

We just got back from a long weekend of playing and partying. Sunday we went to Biowars at Skirmish paintball field in Jim Thorpe, PA. That was a crazy scenario and an all around fun time. Although, we were a little hungover that morning we did survive! I couldn’t blog like I though I could, because our stupid hotel didn’t have Internet and we didn’t feel like finding access else where.

They have one of the hugest castles that I have ever played in with tons of levels and rooms. There are lots of windows to hang out of and shoot from. Its hard to attack into it, but fun to defend from.

We originally set out to play with our(built for these scenario) Tippmann A5’s but I found myself switching to my Dye DM7 fairly quick due to the high level of players there. We ended up going through 2 cases of paint each. There was more paintballs flying at this event than any I had played for a long time.

I’m home this morning nursing my welts, including the dinger I took to the side of my neck! I also tore my camo pants like a fat man bending over. I think we laughed for about a half hour when that happened. Luckily, it was after the day was over and we were just packing up our paintball stuff.

They are having an “Invasion of Normandy” event in July. If we don’t end up in San Fransisco that weekend we will for sure attend that event too. The field is really awesome and they had food available throughout the day(maybe why I split my pants).


Kids with rich parents bother me!

They are on the loose again! All the little brats from suburbia. Every once in a while a kid or two will be mixed into the regulars out at the paintball field with their mom boughten paintball guns. I was out with my tricked out DM7 and this kid, probably 14-15 years old, had a shiny new DM8. He took a look at my gun, laughed and said, “Why don’t you update that old thing?” I simply said, “Because my Mommy won’t buy me a new guy.”

That stupid little brat doesn’t have a clue. If his rich mommy didn’t buy that gun so she wouldn’t have to spend time with him, he’d be shooting a $100 dollar Spyder. Meanwhile, I’m working two jobs to keep my old out of date DM7 up and running. Boo Hoo!

Unfortunately, I never got a chance to up against this little kid and bonus ball him into tears. Probably a good thing!
