Looks like we lost our last thread so I figured I would start a new one.

Wow...you're right.
Thanks for bringing it back bro.
Get Dad to babysit for you & get out to Travis on the 10th & bring the wife - she's probably ready to shoot someone by now... :laugh:

If one of the wives plays, it would probably be Mrs. Cadillac, since Mrs. Stuntman isnt really into paintball that much (well, no ones' perfect - I'll get her to play again sometime though). I figure that since Mrs. C hasnt played in almost a year due to pregnancy/childbirth, she could use a little recreational violence... ;)

Recreational Violence after a 1 year hiatus, sounds like a Good Idea to me.

Well. Greets and all. I'm finally getting back into PB after a 10 year hiatus. I played from '92 to '97 then spent all my funds on my music endeavors from DJing, producing, and promoting music events for the past 10 years.. I just hosted my last event about 2 weeks ago in SF w/ 2 top German hard techno producers (Robert Natus / ArkusP) and am glad to be done with promoting as my interests don't line up at all with the SF Bay and the US for the most part (doh!). I'd have to move to Europe to be involved on the culture side of things..

The good thing is that now instead of losing lots every event pushing music that won't stick here I can funnel that all back to something rather fun instead.. :rolleyes: Err.. I didn't give music up though. I have a new audio hardware company started and hope to release our 1st product late '08; so I'm quite involved on the tech side and not just cultural. I'm more interested in moving the culture forward through new tech.. My focus is advanced 2D/3D surround arrays of any number of speakers and I'm building a "24.8" 32 speaker 3D surround array at my studio/facility for R&D, performance, and in general some kick butt gaming! ;P (some renders of what I'm finishing over the next couple of months: http://www.egrsoftware.com/about/space/")

Anyway.. I finally got my marker running last Friday w/ the help from the Bump pro shop and stopped by Bay Area Paintball to test it out.. After a little tweaking things were good to go.. Even though I was in normal pants and a t-shirt I decided to jump into the evening games and did quite well against walk ons and less so w/ the scrimmaging regulars/teams, but thats cause I kept trying to go for the back side bunkers w/ too much open ground and got tagged just before reaching them. I unfortunately injured my knee a little skim boarding a couple of months ago and can't slide / run as fast currently. I went out to Paintball Jungle Sunday and that was interesting.. Hmmm electros in the woods.. Felt like speedball in the woods really; little tactics just 50/50 shoot outs mostly; except I did pull off an awesome ghost flank maneuver that made it clear why I'm getting back into it all! Doh.. I did have trouble w/ my Qloader as I was using their really crappy paint (almost every ball had 2 dimples!) and feeding was a pain in the rear as I'd get ~8 balls off then I'd have to duck behind cover and jiggle the feeder tube. So lesson learned.. no crap paint in the Qloader ever again.

I'm planning on going out to Bear Creek or Sequoia this weekend. I figure since Sequoia doesn't offer nitro fills and I have scuba tanks for self filling I'm gathering there will be less electros there. I can share my tanks for at least 1 other person if interested. Plus I understand Sequoia is the old Woodstalk. I used to go there all the time years back..

Ok.. Anyone remember an indoor field in Santa Clara called TAPPS? I hearted that place as a kid.. It closed down '95ish I think, but that is where I cut my teeth and have some of the best memories from my teen years there.. ;P Ahh.. Remember before speedball and there were indoor fields with two story fortresses and mazes and a more urbanish setting..

I'll probably be going out most weekends and perhaps do a little indoors/speedball at BAPB once I have my marker (Tac-1) fitted with that GForce pneumatic frame (gonna rock!).

Of course the TAW event.. I made a post over there about carpooling (I'm offering) / sharing a hotel room. I'm on the "Deadites" for the TAW game.. I have a black mohawk w/ blue highlights, so I probably won't be hard to miss..

I guess one larger interest I have for '08 is joining a Cali SPPL team and learning all the ropes in that direction. I think it would be neat to start a SF Bay SPPL team for '09 and could conceivably put in the effort/time to make that happen.

Cheers...

Yeah.. I know I read through the other thread before it disappeared. Might as well give it a shot again.. :) I should have some time/motivation free to organize something just not in '08. I'd like to learn a bunch more by participating first.

On that music stuff.. Yeah. I'm still a bit bummed though the last 5 years was a bit of a war of attrition w/ just me carrying the torch without a crew. I gave it one last solid/big hurrah, but no response. I've got a myspace page for info/audio on the music tip: http://www.myspace.com/egrrecords

Cheers.. Lets tear it up @ CoD.. :)

I am forced to pass on another TAW event due to family commitments but I will make a few next year. I will probably be heading to PBJ in the next couple weeks with some friends. Aaron if you can make it I think Jim will be in town.

Hard to say...we never know before we get there & quite frankly dont care. We are "equal opprotunity" players - we will cheerfully shoot at anyone!
