Delta Force Paintball site - Yankeewood

On Saturday 18th February 2012, a team of us went to the 'Delta Force' paintball site known as 'Yankeewood' in Lancashire. It was Gary's birthday party and it was a fantastic day. I took my GoPro HD Hero 2 camera to film some of the footage. The battery ran out halfway through the day so the footage was quite limited. The video can be watched in full HD here:

The moments we missed on film.

It was a 'Plant the Bomb' mission. We had a bomb like object and had to assault a base and place the bomb inside to win. Me and Gary flanked the base, Gary carrying the bomb and myself with a riot shield. We took out several shooters form our flanking position. I moved up alone with the riot shield creating a huge distraction while Gary placed the bomb to win the game. Some excellent teamwork that game.

Unfortunately the day was slightly ruined by unsporting conduct on the opposing team, wiping off paint and not leaving when hit. I hit this guy five times on the knee and watched him wipe off the paint every time. I shot riot shield squads to hell and back on there feet and shins but they just dropped low and wiped off paint.
Also there were many members of our team who didn't really do much as you can see in my video while I'm taking out snipers in towers and campers in huts, other team players are just standing there looking bewildered.

All in all I had an amazing day and even though we didn't win, at least we played honestly and fairly and totally enjoyed every moment of it.
