07.03.2014 Post-Game / 4th of July Update
Our third game this year occurred recently this past Saturday, June 28th. The rain held off resulting in a nice day for paintball, and the pond made for a great swimming hole when the heat kicked in. The day went well nonetheless and firefights ensued. We were glad to have you out there and hope to see you at our next game, which is in one month, as our next one is cancelled. A reminder for that game will be put out next week as well.
Let us also celebrate our independence tomorrow on the fourth of July. Enjoy time with your family and friends this year and enjoy the fireworks if you are going to them. Make sure to stay safe as well, especially with home-lit fireworks. We'll see you all in a month.

But as it is, my kingdom is not here.
06.02.2014 Post-Game Update
Our first game of the season has successfully occurred this past Saturday. Thanks to all of our fellow paintball players, and the new people who joined us for the bright and sunny day. We hope to see you all in two weeks, and keep on brining out friends and family! Be sure to join us in our bible study as well in 2 weeks, the past one went well, and it'd be great to have more people there during the lunch hour. We will have photos up later on this week so stay tuned for the update.
"Amen, amen, I say to you,
I am the gate for the sheep,
All who came before me are thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved,
and wil come in and go out and find pasture."
05.27.2014 Season Opener
Good News Everyone, it seems that our field will finally be dry enough to play. Pending a typhoon hitting we will be starting our season this Saturday, the 31st. There are a few things everyone should be prepared for though:
- First despite being dry enough to play, there are still a lot of sections of the field with standing water, so expect to get muddy.
- Second, sections of the field will likely be marked off limits to prevent damage to the trails due to the water levels.
- Third, because of the heat and humidity we've had recently the mosquito's are out, as are the ticks.
- Fourth, the road has recently been graded to remove the potholes, please treat the road as a 25MPH speed limit to avoid creating potholes.
We look forward to seeing everyone out there this Saturday, and we hope for some beautiful weather for the remainder of the week. We didn't enjoy having to cancel games in the early season, but it was worth it to protect the field from damage, and ensure the trails are in good condition for the rest of the season. We are looking forward to having a great opening weekend with a temperature in the 80's and hopefully no rain. We have a lot of projects and improvements in the queue to make the Sons of Thunder better and we're looking forward to having a great season.
GAME CANCELLATION - May 17th
Due to copious amounts of rain the upcoming game is cancelled. The field is very much so underwater and not only would it be extremely wet and muddy, running on such would not help our trails. We were also wishing we could host this weekend but are looking forward to our game on the 31st. We hope to see you all out there on the next game and ready for some paintball action and bible studies!
GAME CANCELLATION - May 3rd
Hello paintballers and community alike. Due to inclement weather we have had this spring, the May 3rd game is no longer taking place. The field as it sits is far too wet to begin our season, some sections are still under water. We know that all of you were looking to get out and play, and we are itching to get out too, unfortunately we have to wait. We are currently aiming to begin on May 17th, pending some great weather between now and then. We look forward to everything that this season holds and hope to see you out there.
Welcome to the new year! We have recently held our annual meeting and our schedule is now set for the next season. Also the upcoming seasons games miss most of the major holidays so you can all make it out to most of our games! We are also planning a scenario already, but that will come later, as well as a new website design. We hope to see a lot of you there and we have a lot planned for this upcoming year, the schedule is below:
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up;
do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
Merry Christmas fellow players! We hope all get to have a great time at home with family and bonding. It's an important day, the day Christ was born, may we also give thanks to God for this day. Thank you to all who support us so that we can continue doing what it is we do, it wouldn't be the same without you all! Safe travels everyone and have a Merry Christmas!
Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign:
The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son,
and will call him Immanuel.
Happy thanksgiving everybody! Let's all take this day to appreciate what we have here in our world and for the families we have as well. Remember what our families do for us, and what we do for them as well. It may not be smooth sailing all of the time, but be thankful for them, as we are for the Lord. Thank you as well to all of those who come to participate in the games we host, we hope to see you again next season. And enjoy the video, stormtroopers have families too (that and it's quite entertaining to watch).
Honor your father and your mother,
so that you may live long in the land
the LORD your God is giving you.
Hello paintballers! The photo gallery from the last game is up, make sure to check it out as it was from the Halloween game! I already want to get out and paintball more, but the weather says otherwise. So albeit the off-season let's talk some paintball. Whoever has some fun ideas for games or paintball in general, let us know on our facebook page. I want to hear some ideas you all have and just general paintball talk.
We'll keep you guys updated as well as we make progress over the off-season. We have some plans in mind to do and it's just a matter of time. It will be a whole new exciting season next year, and we want to make it better for you all. Again we want to thank you all who come out and support us, and enjoy your off-season.
Whatever you do,
work at it with all your heart,
as working for the Lord,
not for human masters
Thank you all who came to our last game of the season. It was a blast and the weather held out for us for the most part. We also appreciated the costumes that did come out, such as Bender, or Ghost from Call of Duty. We had some epic games go down as well, with some intense firefights in capture the flag and team elimination. Stay posted for pictures of the last game of the season as well.
Also everyone have a great off-season. Put together some paintball projects that you haven't had the time for recently. Let's see some creativity in paintball apparel or weapons, or just new and improved gear as well. Build your stock up as the winter makes its way closer every day. We also are planning on having some reviews on paintball markers or equipment, so we'll keep you posted there. Thanks again for coming out everyone, have a great winter!
But those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
This upcoming Saturday marks the end of another paintball season. The weather for this Saturday looks likes it is going to be chilly. The forecast displaying a high of 46 degrees, so bundle up. Also make sure to dress up and bring friends for this Halloween game.
And to get your excited, there's a video if you haven't watched it yet. Get you gear ready, suit up, and come shoot it out for the last weekend until next spring. If someone goes as batman they get a high-five as well, especially if they fly around the field (arm out and all). Let's make this Halloween game epic and tons of fun!
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Thanks everyone for coming to our second to last game of the year. It was a blast and the weather turned out to be pretty nice. The attack and defend games resulted in some intense firefights and good skirmishes. There were some pretty good decisions tactically as well by some groups, great job!
In two weeks is our Halloween game! This is also our last game of the season. So before the season ends invite all of you friends or fellow paintballers. Also make sure to dress up for extra amounts of fun on the field. This game can be about the core sport and tactical positions, but being at the end of the year, do those crazy things you've always wanted to try. We hope you all had a good time this past Saturday and to see you in two weeks for Halloween.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ,
he is a new creation;
the old has gone,
the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17
It's here everyone; the paintball weekend is here at last! Grab a buddy and take them out to our second to last game of the season. Winter is on the horizon so get out your last energies before hibernating during the off season. Shoot all of that extra paint (not all, save some for October 26th) and enjoy yourself.
Of course, not all is the best exciting news. The weather report states that the day should be pretty warm, around high 60's and low 70's. This makes for a fantastic temperature but there is a 40% chance of rain. Yes it is higher than normal but it is only showers and not any thunderstorms. So we hope to see you all there for another great day of paintball.
I have told you these things,
so that in me you may have peace.
Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world.
