SEFF 2011 Paintball Shootout


Good afternoon everyone,

As part of our rolling start for the new week long SEFF for 2011, the Fayette Flyers will be introducing a new event.

“SEFF 2011 Paintball Shootout”

We will set up a dedicated portion of the field and offer several 2 hour events throughout the week, where you will have an opportunity to shoot down aircraft using .68 caliber paintball guns. We will provide everything needed, including the aircraft, guns, and paintballs.

The exact area has not yet been confirmed, but our intent is to prevent taking any dedicated flight line areas away from our current field setup.

The schedule will be 10:00 – 12:00, 3:00 – 5:00 on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If this event takes off, we could either extend the 2 hour interval or add additional events. It’s up to you.

The fee for shooters is:
$10 for 50 rounds
Or
$20 for 150 rounds

We can support up to 5 shooters, and will operate at least 2 aircraft at same time. The aircraft are 6’ flying wings (with commemorative 10th Annual SEFF graphics) and will be able to fly slow enough (for those that need it) to allow for some spectacular hits.

Don’t forget to have your buddy come with you to take photos. These planes have been known to take over 40 rounds (through and through) and continue to fly with pieces flying or hanging off.

All level passes across the firing line will be angled away from the shooters for added safety. A safe operation is our first priority and will be maintained at all times by our highly trained and dedicated staff of SEFF helpers.

There will be plenty of paintballs and aircraft to shoot at, so have at it!

Welcome home Laine,

Your first on the list, if needed.

Do you have any experience with flying wings? Sorry, I forgot.

Thanks,

Matt

It would help out at the end when there are only a few planes in the air!!! Maybe let the paintballers declare the winner when it starts to get boring with 4 or 5 planes just buzzing around missing each other!!

LOL, hmmmm... I think I have flown one or two of them.

I already told the wife I'll be spending $20 for her to take out her frustrations with my RC hobby.

I like this too. They did something cool at E-Fest that shortened the ending of the combat this year. After it got down to 5 planes, they put your standard 6' table out and the first one to fly under it without crashing won. Made for a nice grand finale, clear winner (kinda) and removed the victor by power system efficiency.

I will certainly be there to fire off a few rounds. Sounds like TMF.

We did this at one of our local clubs a couple years ago and it was a BLAST! (pun intended)

One of the better times I've ever had at the field for sure.

Our local club did the paint ball thing last year during a club fly-in. Way too much fun. It was amazing how much torture the over size foamies where capable of taking without going down.
