Saturday, and to Mayhem Paintball in Abridge, Essex, for the National Paintball. This is the largest Paintball site in England, and is very near to Theydon Bois (they do regular Mini-bus pickups from the station).
Your humble blogmaster took part with other Plussers in a group of 30 in eight games throughout the day. We played on 4 of the 14 playing areas – two games each. It was a draw at the end of the day so far as I can remember.
Not that the score is what I remember most about the day! I certainly “killed” a few of the opposing team, but I got plugged several times myself. Mainly it was just once here or there, but in the last game of the day, I mistakingly ran straight across someone’s line of fire, resulting in several shots all at once. Although they stung at the time, the bruises now look a lot worse than they actually feel.
In the evening we went to the Sir Winston Churchill Pub in nearby Debden for a disco.
