To get ready for Euro 5-man we will have "crash" sliding practices the next 3 Sundays.
Sliding is an important skill as gets you behind cover and out of the line of paint sooner. Plus it looks hella cool when you do it right and it is your best way of getting featured on a paintball DVD.
Wear your playing clothes (top, trousers & gloves) including any pads you have. Ideally, you'll have knee, elbow/forearm pads and sliding shorts. The more padding the less it hurts when you get it wrong.
We will meet in Hyde Park opposite the Lancaster Gate Tube Stop at 10:00AM this Sunday and next (9th, 16th & 23rd). More specifically go into the park through Lancaster Gate, you'll pass public toilets on your left and further in on your left is a large fountain. Opposite the fountains is a large grassy field, we plan to slide there but bring my mobile # in case you cant find us 07931958606.
If you're late, you do laps and buy the first round at the pub afterwards. It will last as long as it needs to but if you need to leave after 12 thats OK.
Post below if you can't make it. Otherwise we will expect you. Dylan, I know you're out of town this Sunday.

Afraid I've managed to get myself some double time overtime at work from 10-4. Will not be attending for this reason.

I cannot make either practises sadly, girlfriend is in town and I have to devote my time to her or risk not getting any action.
Re: Sunday Practices By: IL-Dylan Date: October 05, 2005, 08:13:13 am
I am in for the 16th but any chance doing the 23rd as well?
I will give Paul the details as he does not have access to the site.

I m in as well

Dylan, We will do the 23rd too. I've amended the post above to reflect this.
I am troubled and dissappointed that some of the people who need this most are not attending. A few hours out of your Sunday is not too much to ask...if you want to win games.

If your dissing my sliding skills we are having a slide-off in two weekends.
Re: Sunday Practices By: IL-Dylan Date: October 05, 2005, 09:03:35 pm
Paul is not able to make this weekend but we can both make the next two weekends. I am going to practice on Friday night with Paul at TPC to make up for missing next Monday.

Excellent. I applaud your effort and initiative sir. Please check w/ Dave at TPC to make sure this is OK with him though. We don't have carte blanche to walk in there any time we feel like it and practice.
Could you also please e-mail Axel at [email protected]
and explain to him exactly what is happening as you try to log Paul in. Everyone is having trouble but Axel thinks its just certain IP addresses. From what others are telling me I think it has to be more than just that. The more information you can give him, the more likely he will be able to solve the problem.

Re: Sunday Practices By: IL-Dylan Date: October 21, 2005, 08:10:29 am
Paul and I will not be able to make practice on Sunday but we will both be down for Monday.
Re: Sunday Practices By: IL-Tom Date: October 21, 2005, 08:18:40 am
I can make it this Sunday, does anyone know if there's anywhere to park cos it's a 25 minute drive or an hour and a half on the train for me to get there!
