Paintball Anyone?

I was fortunate to have Saturday off this week, which allowed me to try something I've never done before. Paintball! Have you played this sport yet?
It was a bachelor party that led us down to Derby and we spent 5 hours hiding behind trees, brush, hay bales, etc. just hoping to eliminate the other team by blasting them with paintballs. I think I have a pretty high pain tolerance but that didn't ward off the nervousness of getting hit with a paintball. Everyone had been telling me all week how bad it stings when you get hit, so I was skeptical when we arrived. I made it through most of the day unharmed, but on one of the last few courses of the day, I took a bad hit in the neck. I'll have to do my best at covering it with some thick makeup (yes, the guys on TV wear makeup).

It was a nice, very warm, muggy Kansas afternoon with no wind, so the conditions were just right for excessive sweating. The recent rainfall has really helped increase the mosquito population and we witnessed it first hand while hiding in the wooded areas. I know there were two pictures taken on Saturday and if I get my hands on them, I'll post it here. Have a good week.

Wow Ross! Sounds fun. I've heard that it can be a lot of fun, except for the pain. Did you wear any protective gear?
