    Suzanne's a mate of mine, everywhere we go she seems to know someone from Harrogate...managed to bump into a friend from the town in a bar at Glastonbury 150K people and she finds someone she knows and i don't let her forget it...worth a chance to see if I could take the piss out of her for it again. ;):p

    Anyway, onto more important (and non-wind up related) questions. There's a site on York road by the motorway, but I think it's a punter site and I've not seen any mention of walkons. From what I remember YPC is the closest to you, run by/associated with the guys from FatBobs IIRC. Never been but I think they do walkons.

    As for the bottle fill thing, I bought a dive tank and an adaptor when I first moved to air, get them filled at any scuba shop...doubt a dive shop will have the fittings for a tiny tank so other than that you're going to a site or a shop. There's a dive shop on Knaresborough Road by the hospital so you could ask/try there.

    Don't worry about 'proper' paintball gear to fit in.

    You do want comfortable goggles of your own, but don't make the mistake of thinking you must have the right type of jersey etc.

    When I started out I bought a lightweight speedball jersey from the bargain bucket as Phoenix paintball. I wore it about twice before giving it to a teammate about 10 years later
    If you go to a walkon you will see everyone from full on tactical, speedballers and guys in jeans & tshirts.

    Wear what is comfortable for you, fits your budget and what you like
    Let time develop your preferences
    It's only when you get to tournaments that the site & referees will require you to wear a proper jersey
