Practice for Easter week By: IL-Tim Date: April 13, 2006, 02:14:45 pm
Because of the Bank Holiday on Monday, 17 April we will not be practicing at TPC. Instead we will hold a much-anticipated and needed Sliding Practice on Wednesday the 19th.
It will be held at the park in Mudchute. Link to Map is below. Take the Jubilee line to Canary Wharf and switch to the DLR. We will meet outside the DLR station at 700PM.
Wear your playing trousers and top and bring any knee or elbow pads you have. DO NOT BRING YOUR GUN--although if anyone has a supersoaker or anything similiar that is brightly colored and can in no way be confused for a gun, bring it. I do have 1 set each of used knee and elbow pads that can be had for a fiver each. First one to call them gets them. I also have some old school knee/shin pads that aren't ideal but get the job done and can also be had for a fiver.
You may be wary of looking like a tit but this is an essential skill to have guys and something, we unfortunately can't practice at TPC. If you watch the pros, they slide in just about every time. So if you have trouble making your bunker and ever hope to make it to a paintball DVD, you need to know how to slide properly.
Enjoy your Easter. See you on Wednesday. http://www.streetmap.co.uk/newmap.srf?x=538454&y=178890&z=1&sv=538454,178890&st=OSGrid&lu=N&tl=~&ar=y&bi=~&mapp=newmap.srf&searchp=newsearch.srf
