Never know when you'll get hungry.

I don't eat at all when I play. I cannot see how people eat when running around and such. I most times don't even eat for at least a few hours after I'm done. Adrenoline is usually running all day and after. Closest I get to food is chewing gum. I absolutely have to chew gum or I dry up like a prune -

Sounds to me like you got everything covered. I thought I brought a lot of stuff with me but I guess I don't. One time I decided that I didn't need a bunch of stuff because I thought I was over packed, so I left it at home and guess what? I need it. So I guess its better to be safe than sorry. Have fun!

gatorade, q-tips, sand paper, nail file, super glue, batteries, spare hoses (something might happen even though you use SS), rubber bands, paper clips, tweezers. some of that stuff sounds wierd, but you never know when you might need to fix your or someone elses gun.

At Cup I had three bags. My duffle bag had my tank, hopper, arm pads, misc stuff, pack and mask. My backpack had my Alias and ECX Timmies, barrels and some other misc stuff. The gun bag had the Ripper2 Timmy and Foehn'd Element framed Ion in it. We had a pull cart that we used to carry our paint. We'd have that thing stacked with bags. It sucked having to pull that, especially at the venue, where it was hilly at the team parking area.

i loved the days where i could just throw my spyder in my bag with a couple of co2 tanks, a hopper and some paint.

Well turns out I did need some of the tools kuz I pulled a venturi for a guy and removed the spring from his trigger too. Think I recruited at least 4 people to the relm of LP. After trying my new Imagine all wanted the detailed dirt on LP for their Spyders. I used all 3 markers today and I must say I totally PWN'd -

I agree with the forgetting stuff post. If I forget something chances are I'll need it but if I have everything, nothing at all seems to go wrong and all just takes up space in the trunk lol -

Though TP was a good idea, just as I can't eat because I'm so worked up, I couldn't take a dump if I wanted to. No eating, no dumping lol - :D

LOL - you know next time you'll have to take a rather large dumpo - all because we brought it up here and it'll flash through your mind...

Grab a wetnap pack so in case you're in the woods and don't have time to run to the portapot....Ewwwwwwwwwww!

at one tourny i played in, it was catored by some resterant and they gave us pulled pork and chicken and pasta. it was really good but it was right before we had to play the finals. but we did ok, the first few games then our guys like stopped being aggresive and stuff so we got 4th. i could eat and play doesnt bother me.

I eat while I'm at the field. I always get hungry as heck. Also, Gatorade works WONDERS when you're dehydrated.

Gatorade is da shizzle and I always have some on hand. I tried a bottle of Bawls(sp?) last week and really like it. I tried some other stuff similar and threw it away after tasting it. Was going to try a couple of Bawls today but the corner store was out of stock. Will have to wait for next time I suppose -

Bawls is pure caffeine. When you get some, REMEMBER; ONLY ONE PER DAY. It will be very bad for your body, and you will be twitchier than Twitchy the Squirrel.

hmmm...imagine how one would b on the field if too many Bawls were to be drank...lol

bawls dont have caffeine in them at all, it has some berry root stuff thats like 5 times stronger.

hah thats funny because im holding a bottle of bawls in my hand right now and on the ingredients at the bottum it says "WARNING this product caontains HIGH levels of caffeine". me and my friend had 2 bawls in one day a couple weeks ago while playin reball... we were WIRED, then towards the end of the day we got sooooooooo sick and almost threw up. BAWLS, drink responsibly.

Whatever, it's guarna (sp?). But it has the same affect, so I was simplifying.

No, red face it you were wrong. :P

I've never had Bawls..it doesnt sound very appealing.

I had one after drinking one night. It wasn't that great, and it didn't make me stay awake.

My conclusion from this thread: Dragon takes way too much stuff to the field, Bawls isn't all that great, and Tim is an idiot.

Very good deduction, Chris. :dodgy:

Agreed, as I agree to Tim being an idiot. But that's okay.

I never seem to be able to take enough stuff when I play, I always end up needing something else. I guess I haven't yet reached the stage of my maximum amount of my equipment yet. So far, the most bags I've need is two. Just equipment, one marker only too. Before, I took all 4 of my markers to the field, and that was just a pain, and then I sold 1 and the other three are not in working condition quite yet, so I wont be playing anytime soon... Anywho, I wanna go play now..

I usually brought about the same 'stuff', snacks as well. I also brought a spray bottle (didn't see it mentioned). I stayed away from eating food prepared at the site mainly because I rather not be running to the port-a-potty during the game cux of da shiatz.
