It's Monday and that means there's a new post at Baca's Blog over at the Big Bullet. This week's post is called 'The First Time' (get your mind out of the gutter) and refers to a first time experience of the game of paintball. I doubt my story is particularly unusual, at least for an Old Skooler but I'm also encouraging peeps to post their stories up in comments and it might be really interesting if a whole bunch of youse include your story. Or not. (I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here.)
Here at VFTD I'm taking today off but decided to take a couple of minutes to provide a certain-to-be-disregarded schedule of some upcoming posts. The posts identified will be posted--eventually. As the regulars know it's just that it frequently takes longer than the schedule projects. Personally, I blame management.
Tuesday is the day for the Major League Paintball Held Hostage Update and Friday is for Enlistments of the Week. In between and sometime after Friday, in no particular order, the posts currently in the queue are: 2 Paintball Sucks! posts, The Unseen Game, Poverty or Parity and They're Back!!! I'm also considering do a Field Design post or two on the HB layout if anyone is interested. If not I probably won't. I'm also thinking about doing some how-to posts on xball or Race2, if you prefer. (Though I don't see them as quite the same thing.) Again, if you are interested, let me know, because posts like that require actual *shudder* work.
The Paintball Sucks! posts will be about "journalists" being sponsored by the industry and about the whole "for the players by the players" mantra.
The Unseen Game is about the undercurrent of gamesmanship that goes on at the level of rumor and innuendo.
Poverty or Parity is another piece about the pro game.
And They're Back!!! is about the return to paintball of Gino (NPS) and Jeff (PMI).
