12 March 2008 - 07:13 PMThe Central Canada Convoy Commitee (Winnipeg) will be holding their first planning meeting on Friday, March 21st at 07:00 pm.
We will be dicussing modes of transport, departure and return dates, luggage allowances and much more.
If time permits we will be showing the 2006 and 2007 OK DDAY DVDs.
If you are expecting to participate in the CCC, please PM me with your name, phone #, e-mail address, and on-line name. Do this ASAP, regardless of whether or not you can attend the meeting as we need to get a firm count on attendees. Please RSVP for meeting attendance as well. For those of you on the Milsim Team Paintball forums, you only have to send me your information and attendance once (either here or there).
I will be responding to PMs for those who wish to attend with the location and directions of the meeting.
Hope to see you there.
10 November 2007 - 01:14 PMYeah its kind of shameful that most of the guys with higher ranks and what have you have 10 entries on the same day. If I logged each game instead of each game day, id have like 9,000 points. I log each actual day I go, and I actually write pretty detailed reports now too on each day. I mean, if people want to log each individual game, I think thatd be fine, I understand the desire to do it that way, but I think there should be an option, so you can say it was only a single game, not a game day, and get only 5 points instead of 50.
I have to diagree there. I log my games individually, because I play my games individually, not as one big mass.
When I started, I would just do an entire day. However, it didn't really convey what happened that day at all.
For one thing, I play different positions in different games. Sometimes I am a team leader, so I log the game as Commander. Other times I am a hardcore flanker moving fast, and log myself as a Sabre. Other times I am the stoic infatry man and log the game as a Medium Rifleman. How would I log that day as one entry?
Plus we all have games where we get eliminated off the break and games where we almost singlehandedly wipe out the opposition. I want those games to stick out, not to average out.
Finally, I want my entries to tell a story. I want to be able to look back and reminice over my exploits. I want my friends and my opponents to be able to read and recognize a game they played in. I don't want if to be "just another day of paintball".
So I don't feel individual game entries is stat-whoring. Now, when you see the guy who played a game at Paintball Field 999 and got 99 kills to 9 eliminations and he played 100 times in one day, I'll grant you that. But if someone wants to take the time to describe each game and break it down, I think that's completely legitimate.

Your $20,000+ of Spec Ops purchases, many of which were made within 1 second of each other looks a wee bit suspicious mate.
While you may very well have that much cash to spend on paintball (and your excessive gear list seems to agree), unless you have a bot doing your purchasing, that's some pretty quick clicking for one guy.
03 November 2007 - 11:17 AMI was one of the Winnipeggers down at OK DDAY 2007 and serving in the 1st Canadian PIB. It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to go again. Last year was a bit of a "scouting mission" with my friend and I checking out the event by ourselves before we recommended it to others. Well, we can say with some authority that this event is the best thing that has ever happended to paintball and all true recballers should attempt a pilgrimage at least once in their life. To that end, I am tryiing to assist in getting some people down there.
I am organizing a convoy from Winnipeg (and back )to Oklahoma D-Day 2008.
I am currently working with my paintball club to generate interest with our members. However, depending upon how well things turn out, we may be getting more vehicles and have more seats available.
Our plan is to rent minivans, one of which will have a hitch and a trailer (for camping and paintball gear). Approximate cost right now is looking to be in the $175 / person range.
I've looked into all the other options (flying, train, greyhoud, private bus, RV, etc, etc) and this simply looks like the most economical and convenient. While we will certainly welcome private vehicles into our convoy, it wasn't realistic to find enough players willing to put the mileage on their personal vehicle and / or leave their families without transportation for a week.
It sounds like Digital Pirate has something coming together for the out-of-towners who can get to Winnipeg.
Right now I am focusing on Winnipeggers and particularly Milsimteampaintballers.
If things go well enough wioth that, I'll try to coordinate with Digital Pirate to open up slots for out-of-towners.
