So I learned the past Saturday live-blogging and playing paintball/setting up a paintball field is much harder than it seems. Telling someone to nail down bunker while you try to rub your sweaty fingers across an iPhone screen doesn't look that good. So I decided to put down the phone for much of the invent and shed some sweat with the rest of the hardworking folks from Rockfish Church. And shed sweat we did.
I got to the field about 730 and things started pretty smoothly and not a cloud in the sky. The net went up and the bunkers got filled just like clock work. But as much air as we put into the bunkers field it seemed to be taken straight from our lungs. Typically me and the team run a few practice games prior to getting the kids playing but it we were exhausted and moving slow. Good thing is that we got a sunshade up for families and parents to watch.
People showed up and the games were great. The referees and volunteers did a great job of getting people in and off the field and most importantly making sure everyone had plenty to drink. Overall it was a good event not too many people standing around waiting to play but plenty of games got to played.
Next games should be on the 2 July 2011. Should be a big event.
