Today Team Blackrain took a little time off from playing. Since it was Mothers Day,I figured the fields would be empty. Yea Right. I decided I wanted to go to see a few museums.
I'm not going to post all the pictures,cause I took well over 300.
So over a $100 later which included admissions,having to buy a new SD disk,cause a dumba$$ team member forgot it. New batteries,cause the old ones decided to died, I was all set for a tour of Baboa Park Museums.
If your ever in San Diego and get the chance,please visit these places. Lots of history here.

First Stop was the San Diego Areospace museum:

Oh look ALIENS










Inside:










Follow the foot prints:








The main area:
















Let's move on:








Into the court yard:








So after that tour I decided to see the Auto Museum.

I was very impressed with this car. I saw a show about this when I was a young boy and always wanted to see it. I was actually thinking of this car the other day.










SLUG BUG:









A few other displays:










The Veterans museum:

This was a special place for me:










Let's go inside:































End of tour.
Later,
Blackrain

Barona Paintball Park

It was another exciting day. I went out there yesterday (15 May 2010) to tune a gun and played today (16 may 2010). It was different. When I first arrived,I saw alot of milsimers,well it turned out they were all airsoft players.

Well that was something I've never seen on a paintball field. Dartmoo will be happy to know I passed out a few of his cards to these guys. Hopefully they will contact him for some custom gear.

Well it was a nice day,Sunny,Hot,dry and Sandy. It was great. It was a nice area to play. Moto Cross races were going on in the back ground.

I did like the fields. The airball field need a little work,but that's really about it.

I did play the Castle twice,didn't do well my first game,but second I cleaned house from inside the Castle. Even got outside the castle to make a player surrender. I'm getting good at doing that

I'd have to say that the concrete field was my favorite. Why I don't know,maybe because I could sneak around it. I did well during both games.

Western Town I had my A$$ handed to me twice. Sometimes you just have to take the good with the bad.

So here's a few area shots and field shots.



























This is what most amazed me. These tourney players took time out to help the young kids learn the game of speedball. They were teaching them how to move duck,take cover. Doing 1 against 3 drills with them. I was really amazed seeing this.

Their excuse was:

"They are the future of this sport,other teams might not care,but we do. If we don't help them learn the game,then we loose another player"

I liked hearing that. It's the way all of us should think about new players in our sport.



I'll do a full review on all the fields once I get home.

Day at Velocity

6 June 2010:

Yesterday's events were fun. The Wife was in full pit Crew form. Even ran into Hammy of SoCal. He was having gun trouble. I guess certain paint colors still mess with EYEs.

Velocity was a nice field. I didn't get to play all of them. However they are like all the fields I have played at here in Cali. They play two games on each field and then take a small break before the next two games. Gives enough time to reload and reair. I really like the two game idea and doing a quick switch after each game.

It was desert with woods and large rocks for natural cover. Lots of spools and tall grass. Hills were all in place. So some shots looked easy untill you got to the point you wanted to shoot from,only to find out it wasn't the place to shoot from .

So shooting and moving was what you had to do on a few fields. I did get lucky in my second game. I was able to weaken a side by eliminating a few players in key positions. After being shot,it still gave the rest of the team enough room to manuver and take out the rest of players remaining.

So I had an exciting game or two. I just couldn't stand sitting around behind a bunker.

I would reccommend this field and all the others I have played at on my little tour. It offers something different like all the other fields in the area do. I'd say this is a more NATURAL TERRAIN field.

I didn't play speedball,let's face it I don't have my Cocker with me.

I only played about 8 games and then took off. It was my Wife's last night,so she had to get her BINGO freak on at the Casino. It's been an exciting tour for me. Just one local field left for me to hit and that's Mirmar next weekend. Have to service my MG7. Over 10,000 rounds and not one break,but have a little leak on the inside. Minor detail.

I actually now have a few pics of me in gear. Thanks to the Pit Crew:








Hammy and I talking about something as I'm reloading:




Few Field Shots:






I don't know what it is about the Wife and cameras,but everytime we get in the car she takes pictures while we are moving:

Figured we had 500 shots on the SD card,so what will it hurt for her to have a little fun.












Then off for her fun. 3 hrs of BINGO.

I was the BINGO pit crew. My Job was getting Soft drinks,pop corn and dabbers.







It was a terrific day and Wife had alot of fun while she was here. I'll see her in another 3 weeks when I get home.


Later,
Blackrain
