About 10-11 years ago my group of friends became highly addicted to paintball and all its glory. As time passed, we started to go our separate ways and one by one the guns and equipment were sold at yard sales and pawn shops. Well, today my 13 year old stepson went to a birthday party at Hillbilly Paintball and he had a blast. There were about 20 boys unleashed on the course for hours of different games and events. My son is the type of kid that if something is boring or not working well, he doesn't mind telling anyone who will listen about his complaints. But he was very happy with his first paintball experience at this course. He was excited to mention to me that they are expanding their facilities this summer as well.
Who knows? Maybe this summer I will try to spend some time out there with him so we can have a hobby in common. Of course, dad here is a bit out of shape compared to a decade ago. But I do know patience and that is one thing young players toss out in favor of run-and-gun. :)
