+lostinjersey Posted October 8, 2004 Share Posted October 8, 2004 (edited) If all goes well there will be geocaching event at the Spaghetti Western in oak Ridge, NJ Its on Route 23 just North of Clinton Rd. Coordinat6es: N 41° 03.459 W 074° 28.180 I had discussed this previously, and when i went to create the official event I made reference to the paintball too, and its currently being negotiated whether the event cache page can or cant have even the slightest reference to a commercial event. that said, it was clear that the paintball would have to be organized here in the forums, and so.... here we go. DATE: 11/6/04 TIME: 930 AM till around 430 ish LOCATION: ABC PAINTBALL, West Milford The place is at the intersection of Marshall Hill Rd & Greenwood Lake Turnpike. The signs for the sporting good store and the U-Haul rental are larger and more prominent then any signs for the paintball, but its at the Y intersection and its hard to miss. Coordinates: N41 08.231 W74 20.502 Costs are as follows: $15 if you have your own gear $40 if you rent gear $15 per 500 paintballs you can also bring your own from say sports authority, or contact Harrald. Since he plays there a lot he can likely get a discount. I never ever try to guess how much paint a person will use. Some newbies fire at everything, some fire little if they play a defensive position. Some veterans have the finger on autofire and spray the area up, some are patient and only take quality shots. A good estimate though is between 500-1500. Bear this in mind. Games start at around 930, but I will try to be there by 9ish so I can keep everyone together and get us organized. Games will likely end around 4-430. I'm scheduled the event cache for 500 so its likely I (and the others who play paintball) may arrive earlier then that. Anyone with questions about paintball in turns of play, what to wear, reduce chances of injury, who we should gang up on (kidding) should direct them to myself or Harrald as we've both played a fair amount. I will say this: getting shot doesn't always hurt, but the best way to combat that is to wear several layers of clothing as opposed to a shirt and a jacket. Multiple layers acts as padding, and also, layers can be removed as needed if its too hot. Anything else, shoot either of us an email. DISCLAIMER: Paintball is a physical sport and you run the risk of injury like you would in other sport, so sprained ankles, general soreness and tiredness, and welts from getting shot are possible. Neither I, ABC Paintball, or geocaching.com is responsible if you attend and get hurt. That said, injuries are relatively rare. If this goes well, I hope to run another one in December at Skirmish, in PA, although there are technical issues to that which I hope to work out soon. Also: please feel free to bring family and friends to paintball. The more the merrier! Do note that anyone under 18 needs to have signed parental consent. Also note: there is no prepayment requirements! Those attending total 5 including: Gwho (and wife) JMBella Harrald & Barmin (I assume) Others who expressed interest include BrianSnat HartCLimbs BldBabe Mxyzptlk and the Frantic Cachers said maybe hope you all can make it, and dont forget yo are invited to bring husbands, wives, kids, parents and friends!
