retread, I'm going for sure. I'm on the OC Meetup group, Rey Sandoval. I might be taking two people with me, but not sure about them yet. I'll check and post back by the end of this week.

Also, do we follow this post for the updates or the Mag fed FB group ..?

Hey folks...hopefully will have some more details from Giant today...working several angles right now. I will also get an answer to the question about 12 grams for 12 gram exclusive users.

I am also toying with the idea of doing some awards - best sword/axe/knife kill - best grenade kill - mvp - whatchya think? I could do 3 small paintball trophies just for fun and to add to the excitement...to be awarded at the end of the day and voted on by the group...might encourage folks to stay longer to hang out if nothing else?

Just gonna throw this out there and see what you guys think.

One of my favorite ref's at CPP is willing to come for this event strictly for the purpose of taking pictures. This guy will get in the middle of the action, run along side you, take shots, slide up to your face and start snapping away while you engaging with another player. I would then put all the pictures on a FLICKR album for all to see/download. The only thing is that he lives in Tehachapi which is a 3 hour drive so be is asking for $100 to capture the entire day. I'm willing to start up the basket with $20.00

Here's some of the pictures he's taken for me

I told him I'd give him a response in a couple of days.

Awesome poster STREAKER!!!!!

I definitely would like to see this as a repeat event.
Maybe we could set it up every 2n Monday of the month?

See how SC village would feel about that.

Nice!...I will contribute minimum $20 but sign him up and we'll make sure he's taken care of...I know you also like to pass the hat to collect for tipping our refs which I also want to support and encourage.

What I love best about this event is that it is a real community effort. Several groups collaborating to make it better and attract more players for a common goal of getting folks out to play! Thanks to EVERYONE that has pitched in because the support on this has been tremendous and with everyone's help I don't see why we wouldn't be able to continue it and continue to expand on it! New themes...new games...new props...fun and safe for everyone to encourage and grow...I have a goal to try to get more girls to attend (including my gf who does come with) but also kids and I have a handicapped friend I am wanting to get playing as well.

That is the only way we'll keep the sport growing and benefiting everyone...players, store owners, manufacturers, and field owners. I don't know about you but I want to see better and cheaper paint and other new and innovative products and exciting new or updated fields and events like this one! Also, the more of these I seem to work on with people like you here the more people come out of the woodwork and ask a) how they can help and support and b) how much they like what we're doing.

I don't know if you saw but the LA Meetup group was founded by Sonny Lopez of the LA Hitmen. I took over the group from him and he's been super supportive. I was hoping to get him and Carmatech to come to our event with their bolt action mag fed sniper rifle but I know Sonny is super busy flying around all over the place. Anyway...let's keep up the good work and continue to fight the good fight!

Btw guys, I will be bringing spare guns, that I will have chronoed up, and will take to the fields every game. This way, if anybody has a problem, they can switch out, without having to miss out on playing any game at all. And fix their gun during the walk off.

Very generous of you...also asking our friends from Azodin (some employees are member o the OC Meetup group) to see if they want to attend. They wanted me to help them do a regular game and they make one affordable autococker style pump so I like to encourage and support them! The last time we did the event with BOMAGS they came with a tent and 10 markers and masks to loan out to people that did not have them or wanted to try out an Azodin. They also have some nice shirts and head gear they designed that look pretty nice...I was impressed. And, they are a local (Pomona, CA) based company which I ALSO like to support (of course the markers and gear are made in Taiwan or China but still...so is Dye and everyone else but the designers and mgmt are here and creating jobs for some nice folks that play right here at SC) Hoping they will want to come again!
