    I have got to say this one has been the best so far the field played well the judging was good and the new 7 man format was good all in all it was the best day paint balling i have had in a long time well done Formula 5 and John.
    Ohh and well done Outrage for winning it.

    From what I hear Gorillaz smashed Outrage in the final game and we actually pipped them to 1st?

    But agree it was a great day. The Formula 4 format (4 on field, 3 in the pits waiting to play and 10 minute games) seemed better than the 5 man (5 on field, 5 in the pits, 20 minute games). Far more movement as it was harder to lock fields down with only 4 guns.....LOADS of muggings!, fewer players to ref (and I thought the refs did a great job today) and lower paint consumption for a cheaper day out. Plus of course only needing 7 players means it's easier for teams to find a squad to play.

    Thanks to John, Jackie, Danielle and all the other organisers for a great day.

    Indeed it looked like Outrage were going to win until the Gorillas had a turn and played their hearts out giving the Redsikins the win for the day by 4 points

    Had a great day today.

    Was really unsure about the whole F4 concept to be honest as I've been more than happy playing F5 for the last 18 months.

    At the end of the day, I must admit that I prefer the F4 format.

    Makes it even better as we won....

    Couldn't have done it without our fantastic Empire AXE's, Prophecy's and the spot on Evil paint we were shooting, all from John and Jackie at KEE.

    Guys and Gals,

    It was an awesome days balling.

    As Wingy already said, we have been paying the F5 for over a year and at each event John Sosta had made tweaks here and there to improve it, even with these changes Teams have struggled to get the 10 players. Now with the decline in teams others may have just shut up shop and stopped the event but not Mr Sosta, he has tried his utmost to keep this event going and now this has morphed into the F4 with 7 players.

    Well, as the other comments have already said, It was a really really good day, the play was so much better to actually play the field rather than just lane it.

    My thanks go to the other teams we played and the other teams that actually turned up for the event, there were some good battles out there.

    Thanks also go to the marshalls who didnt really have to do very much, but when they did, they did it properly and fair, and the biggest thanks go to the Sosta Family, Kee and Empire - The kit, guns, paint are all amazing and it showed with our overall performance.

    See you all soon, and if you havent tried this before in the F5 mode, then come give it a try in the F4 format, you will not be disappointed !!!
