|2 years 11 weeks ago||Depends||
As a member of the UofM paintball team I feel pretty well qualified to answer this question.
My personal opinion is as follows:
It depends on which kind of paintball you enjoy playing, considering you said you're ordering an etek 3 I'm guessing you are thinking about playing some speedball, airball or whatever you want to call it but not playing in the woods. This means that Hell Survivors is essentially out, they have great big games and the open play can be fun but its essentially dead for speedball unless your bringing everybody. Cru in Flint can be hit or miss, nobody ever seems to be there when I decide to go but maybe thats just me. Futureball is a similar boat as Hell Survivors it can be fun but nobody really goes there to play speedball anymore and the only real selling point they have is that they sometimes do bring your own paint which is hard to find anymore. I can't really speak to No limits in Taylor but as I haven't heard of it that most likely means it's not huge on the speedball scene. Now on to the places I recommend you try Warzone, it's in Ohio but it has a great indoor and outdoor they recently got a new set of PSP bunkers and turf for the outdoor and is currently a great place to play the downside being that it is pretty expensive, typically between 60 and 80 bucks depending on what deal they are doing. On the plus side there is a chick-fil-a at the mall nearby which is a worthwhile stopping point unless you go on a sunday and they are closed which sucks. Finally my recommendation TCP in Lansing, they operate out of the old Chaos field which is actually in Charlotte and might be kind of a haul depending on where you're coming from but it has in my opinion the best competition in the state and good prices at 45 bucks for entry and a case.
TLDR go to Warzone or TCP Lansing for speedball, if you happen to be a woodsballer and I read you completely wrong go to Hells or Futureball
also if you currently don't have a pbnation account you should probably go ahead and make on since they have relatively up to date field listings with ratings on them and what ammenities they have
and finally the etek3 is a decent gun but if you want more info send me an email email@example.com and I can point you in possibly a better direction.
and now I realize I've spent the 20 minutes crafting this response and not studying for my reactions exam

I believe they only split into two squads but could be wrong on that, and I'm almost certain that rosters are announced for each squad ahead of time

|3 years 8 weeks ago||jerseys||
I really like our Jerseys I think they will be even better once we swith them to Maize and Blue for next year. The school didn't pay for any of the jersey design fees those all came out of pocket and we ok'd everything. Digital camo would seem to indicate kids running around with guns in woods which is very far from what we do so no thank you I'll stick with what we came up with.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||my role||
I play the Dorito Back position which basically means I shoot a lot so that the players in front of me can advance up the field. All the gear you listed is outdated but in paintball that doesn't really mean much it's kinda like Golf yeah the wooden drive may not work as well as the Titanium shiny one but it will still work.
|3 years 8 weeks ago||Maize and Blue||
We would have if Maize(yellow) was allowed in the league we're playing in right now but it's not. When we make our jerseys for next seasons College Series I'll post photos since they will be maize and blue.

|3 years 8 weeks ago||shotput||
It can be pretty dangerous especially in warmups with multiple throwers throwing at the same time. Especially in high school when people are learning new techniques and shots tend to go everywhere. During my high school days the rule was to never walk with your back to either the shotput or discus rings just in case but it's pretty easy to slip once and get nailed.

It depends on the situation while the Silverdome and the Palace aren't surrounded by restaurants and developments. I would argue that the downtown area of Detroit has gotten a significant amount of development due to the Comerica park and Ford Field and to a lesser extent the Joe. I don't think it's clearcut whether stadiums help or hurt an area but in my opinion they definitely have an overall positive effect on the area.

I feel your pain on being broke Paintball is about the only thing I spend my money on. Good luck with the job search
|3 years 21 weeks ago||it's||
never too late to come out and play as long as your still enrolled of course
|3 years 21 weeks ago||nah||
we pretty much say it however we want we have a good time playing those guys and they know how to take a joke.
If you want to play right now the best place I can recommend is Warzone in Sylvania Ohio if you don't plan on playing until spring you could also check out Hellsurvivors in Pinckney MI.
