Hey guys, it's my first scenario in a week (Let the Bodies hit the Floor - Rambo game in Illinois).

I'm wondering if I'm prepared for 8+ hours of play. Here's my current equip list:

Tippmann 98, no mods yet
Remote line
12 and 9 oz Co2 tanks
Cleaning gear (oil, rags, swabs, all my tools and stuff)
Money 4 paint and stuff
Food (sandwhich, apple, and pretzels)
Water/gatorade/soda (for the ride home)
Pod pack w/ pods
My camo stuff
Towel + extra socks
Mask (duh)
Jock strap (should I bring or is it too bulky?)

This is a woodsball/urbawoods scenario (yes, I just made up urbawoods, their urban field is surrounded by your typical forest). My weather forecast is saying lows in the high 40s and highs in the mid 60s, no rain or anything.

Do I need anything else than my current setup? And I want an opinion here, is a jock strap/cup to bulky for woodsball or does its protection outweigh the discomfort?

So am I prepared?

Lots of Water (a Priorty to have when attending a Scenario Game), no Gatorade and Soda, because both will just get you more thirsty and more trips to take a wizz.

Extra Clothing, unless you wanna smell up the interior of the car.

Extra Money.

Having an Extra Mask will help.

As for a Cup, thats up to you.

I had seriously thought about attending that scenario but it turns out I'm just too busy for the next couple of weeks. It looks like alot of effort is going into hosting that game so I'm sure you'll have some fun.

I haven't been to a scenario yet but from my experience in playing regular games, water will be needed in large quantity. In a scenario, a fair amount of time might elapse between trips to the staging area so you will want to have a bottle of water to carry with you in addition to a large container to refill from when you do return to the staging ground. A 20oz. bottle will probably fit in a pod-pouch if you are not already using all of the slots for paint.

If you don't have some already, pick up a package of tank o-rings. Those things go bad constantly and it would not be fun to lose game time over a 25cent piece of rubber.

Unless you really trust your mask to resist fogging, you may want some anti-fog spray. I have a V-Force product that I use on my glasses and it works really well. It also does a fine job of getting paint residue off my goggle lenses.

Bring a cheap plastic poncho and a few garbage bags just in case of rain (you could use a large garbage bag as a poncho too). The forecast I looked at seems to indicate some possibility of inclement weather. Unless you pack some extra clothes and shoes (probably recommended) you can use the bags to protect the car's seats and carpeting from mud and paint. I have not been to Fox yet but I have read that it can be quite muddy at this time of the year.

If you are at any of the scenarios at Realms of Ruin this year we may run accross one another.

Probably won't see you down there 'till I'm old enough to drive (even then, gas prices will probably be like 8 a gallon). I live in Algonquin (almost Wisconsin for reference), so Fox Paintball is an hour drive for me, I go to CPX sometimes. Mostly Operation Paintball, a small field about 30 minute drive from my house.

It stinks living up here, I'm in between everything. If I lived in Joliet I could walk to CPX. If I lived in Wisconsin I could go to the places up there (never played out of state).

It stinks, I moved here from Colorado, and then I got a paintball gun. Colorado had such good fields :(

Bring a padlock if lockers are supplied.

Bring your own paper towel and a spray bottle for cleaning. There's always a shortage of this.

Dress in layers so you won't get hot.

A hat if sunny or rainy.

Hospital card - ID.

A folding lawn chair is always nice to have if limited seating.


Have fun.

Yah, I was wondering why I'd do that... but yes, that works. I've played in freezing temps just wearing my camo and a shirt underneath (I got frostbite because my gloves got wet, but that's beside the point). That's what I'm wearing, if I'm too hot my shirt is bright pink just for fun :panzer:

I use a lot of bandannas. I use them instead of paper towels, they're better for cleaning your lense. I go through 3 or 4 everytime I play. I use them for my marker, mask, vest/clothes... Also, you don't end up w/ a pile of used paper towels you have to throw away - It's better for the environment, think green!

As stated before: water. You can't have too much really. I go through a gallon - for drinking & for cleaning.

As for the "groin protection", that's personal preference. I've been hit by countless paintballs & none were close enough to worry about it. My BDU's are loose enough that if I did take a direct hit I'd be fine (I hope :) ).

Fixed....Spell Check FTW!

Hehehehe...I can think something the rhymes with name, but I cant post it.

Back on Topic:

Go to an Automotive Supply and Parts Store and get a bag of Lint Free Terry Cloths, theyre extremely useful in cleaning the Lens on your Mask.

And since the Summer is nearing, Insect Repellent is good to have around.

Meh, you don't really need a cup. I don't wear one, but I rarely get shot in the groin area. The pain and aches go away after a little bit.
