So I’m going to my first Walkon at Warped at the beginning of the month. Is it just like playing Regular Paintball but just not with your friends?!?

I’m excited and trying to get my stuff together but just wondering what I need to expect/plan for :giggle:

It's like going to a "regular customer" day at a rental site, except with your own marker and equipment.

You will probably make friends there - people like yourself, at their first walkon, and more experienced walkon players/

Enjoy it!

A walkon is like a rental day, similar game styles, with a possible lesser degree of marshalling
But a higher level of joviality and chatting in the safe zone
Say hi to anyone, join in with anyone staging nearby

Rather than the nasty sugar & caffeine energy drinks, I highly recommend sports hydration drinks like SiS, High5 etc
The tabs are great for dropping into a bottle of water

I had a bit of a case of sunstroke and lack of hydration once which wasn’t fun, and as a bi product I discovered that if I hydrate properly then my legs don’t ache for days

Was looking at the Energy Gel Pouch things that they sell in Holland and Barratt (y)
