Paintball II -- the revenge! CANCELLED

OK, it's time to sort out the RIBnet paint fest. If you missed it last year you can see what fun we had here!

The paintball site is a few miles north of Portsmoth and is run by our very own Andy Stevens who has promised us a good deal (you'll probably still end up spending the same amount, but you'll just use more paint! )

They've done a load of work on the site since last year, and there's now a base camp with tea and coffee (and toilets!) and new obstacles include an aeroplane and even a tank

I reckon that sometime in March would be good, but the date hasn't been set yet. Possibly combine it with the Solent Spin?

Ribsters, jet-skiers, speedboaters and WAFIs are all welcome (as is just about anyone else actually). So who's up for it?

John

Yeah - this presents the possibility for a few old scores to be settled I reckon - although I'm not sure my ankle is up to it! (I twisted it last time ).

BTW JK, is that a Freudian slip in the thread title or is it deliberate? PAINball it certainly was for me last year!

Going by his past form, he'll put his name down but not turn up!

Really enjoyed this last year JK but would also prefer to do it in warmer and less muddy times...!!!

The March 12/13 Solent Spin will involve boating both days so another weekend seems better. Give us a couple of weeks to recover

DM taught me how to shoot proper like last year but twas my hubby who got me out every time!!!

There were some very talented/sneaky peeps on my team

Great. Count me in. This was a great day out last year and with the added bonus of being able to give the Welsh and John Kennett a good pasting, this year is looking even better.
