Everything is far away from me! I've been known to travel 3+ hours one way to play a couple hours of paintball just to get something different. Played a tournament at PSI in Tulsa back before they closed about a year and a half ago (KOPS tournament). That was a 4+ hour trip for me....

Nope, never to Manford. Is that close to Sand Springs?

I've thought of playing at the D-Day thing, just to see what it's like. 3000 screaming players with thousands of balls flying through the air at the same time would be sort of awesome!

Unfortunately, I haven't made it yet, but plan on it next year.

Chris Cole

we'll go next year and split a room someplace if you want Vike. I'm too old to sleep on the ground and then go get shot at.

Dang - that sounds decent. My idea of camping anymore is only having 2 pillows on the hotel bed instead of 4!

I might be going to D-Day next year. My brother and I are in the middle of starting a team right now. Thats why we couldn't go this year.

About to start a team? have you played in any torneys? maybe just with some friends?

Im only asking becasue there is a team that plays local torneys at Wild West and they have a girl who is actuly pretty good....

I will chime in as well being from the OKC area. It would be interesting to have all of the Okies in one spot. If something were to get planned for next year now would be the time to start.

Hey, Frat, do I know you? I think I do! Are you Nate?

If not, sorry about that!

07-07-2006, 06:54 AM
LOL Its cool Vike... we all know you past the hill.... im sure he wotn take any offence...

Yes_Im_A_Girl
07-07-2006, 08:06 PM
Well my brother and I have been talking about starting up a team for a couple years now and have never got around to it.

Is there a limit on how many people you can have on a team?

vikingshadow
07-07-2006, 08:18 PM
Depends on what you're playing. Most tournament formats around Oklahoma are 3 man or 5 man - some play Xball, but I think it's mainly the 5 man lite kind. Usually, a tournament team can have anywhere from 5 players up to 100, but only 5 (or 3, or 7, or 10) can be on the field at one time. I made sure my teams never had more than 6 players. If we got higher than that (we had 12 once) I made them into a separate entity.

Not sure about scenario teams.

thechubbss12
07-07-2006, 08:54 PM
6 players FTW... that way you can be sure that if you have a torney on that day and someone has a vacation planned (i would ditch the vacation to play paintball) and they are not as serious as me then you would not be left in the crapper casue you are out a player.

Yes_Im_A_Girl
07-09-2006, 11:25 AM
Well if we make a team we will have about 7 people.

thechubbss12
07-10-2006, 07:51 AM
Awesome... i can tell you Wild West will be hosting a torney in August... so if you have a team together around them just PM and i can put in your registration.... I will have a team there just cause i started a all noob team and they need some torney experiance...

We wont have it togather by then. We want to wait till we can get matching jerserys and we also want matching hats. The hats were my idea because I never play pb without a hat.

Alright, I 'll ring in. I'm from OKC... My 12 year old son got me into the sport. We've been watching some local teams and have thought of putting together a small team of our own. Nothing too serious... OK D-Day sounds awesome.

Not from OKC, but I've played with/against quite a few of them down there.

man it was a blast. especially the storm that hit us thursday night!

vikingshadow
06-13-2007, 01:05 PM
Hehehe, Oklahoma's been getting it's fair share of rain/storms this year! Not complaining though...Did you camp out there? If you did, I bet that storm was fun...

wylde01
06-27-2007, 08:56 PM
yea i camped out there. getting up every couple of hours to check if everything was still up was a real pain.

wylde01
10-21-2007, 12:28 PM
man is there no action in oklahoma anymore?? LOL. i played yesterday with about 7 others out on some private land. it was a blast and was the first time since june that ive gotten to play..........I SUCKED!!

vikingshadow
10-21-2007, 01:17 PM
I think you're right. It's getting harder and harder to play here anymore. Seems that once school starts up, and OU football, the players just don't come out and play. I was just talking about this with the team a couple weeks ago - if it weren't for practice, we'd never get any playing time in.

That is, unless you want to risk showing up out at Choctaw...:rolleyes:

We had a Texas Storm clinic today and tomorrow at our field. (Public one today, team clinic tomorrow.) It was work, but man was it fun! Got to work on some form and whatnot, and realized just how much of a performance gap there is between the level our team plays (at the moment) and a semi-pro player. In snap shooting alone the difference wss staggering.

But, that's ok - we're going to work a lot harder and we'll be ready for that national event by the end of next season - especially now that we know what we need to do.

hey whats going on in OK now days??? i really want to get out and play again just never have the time. what about everyone else?

vikingshadow
02-15-2008, 04:33 PM
Tourney season about to start again. Got a tournament in March, and another Texas Storm clinic as well. Pretty cheap, if I say so myself so if you want, you should try coming up!

Probably nothing coming up this weekend as it's supposed to be stormy and nasty cold all weekend...
