We also have a chrono. WIP-SOG plays mostly outlaw on Little Brother's land. It's only about 5 acres of playable area, but it makes for some fun firefights. There's a nice little hill, we call it "Cheeseburger Hill" (as in "Hamburger Hill" but almost all of us work for Kraft Foods making cream cheese so....) and Jungle Cat Paintball is only about 20 minutes away in Watertown. We almost had a sponsorship deal worked out with them last summer, but John the owner was whacked out of his mind on Demerol the day we talked to him (he had surgery the day before, hillarious conversation BTW
) and then he never got back to us. I'm gonna try and get that deal hammered out early this season. Jungle Cat is a nice little field, some 60 acres I think, and he has done a couple of 24 and 48 hour games there.
Definitely dig up the info about the emroidery company and get it to me. I may have a lead on someone else too. A friend of a friend's Mom has a nice embroidery machine and may be able to do them for us cheap. I just haven't had a chance to talk to her yet.
I also need to contact SpecOps about using their logo on the banners. I'd like to have the BB logo on the left, the BBU logo and name in the center and the SpecOps logo on the right. For those BBUs that have field sponsorship, that would go down below.
I'm leaning towards going to The Hunt in May (earlier in the year, cooler weather and a good cause) if we can only do one trip to Hudson this year.... but then again, I was THIS CLOSE to being the General for the Wisconsin side of GBG X (I was in the tent chrono-ing my gun when they were asking for volunteers) and it really toasts my pooper that I didn't get to command at that one. It would have been a great way to get WIP-SOG's name out there, I would have absolutely loved doing it, and... WE WOULD HAVE WON! I'm not being egotistical (ok, maybe a little) but I know I would have done a better job than General Head-Up-My-Bum from MnRat. Half-way through the day..."Uhhh, whaddaya mean we've had $100k sitting at the registration table since the beginning of the day? Uhhh..." I'm still not entirely convinced he didn't throw the game just so Minnesota could win. I mean, having a MnRat run the Wisconsin Team is like asking binLadin to take over CentCom to run the War on Terrorism! "Uhhhh, yeah. Dump all those MOABs on Chicago. I'm sure there's some alQaida hiding there!" Sheesh!
Gotta go sleep now. Only 7 hours in between shifts today and I've been sitting here for a couple of those precious sleep hours already. Mumble mumble mmrrf. Snnnnrrrrr.snrrrr.
