This was my first event with my new lens! It was the best investment I’ve made in my life, and I’m super happy I got it. Due to the problems with my lens at my last event (it got shot), I had to get a new one. So I spared no expense and bought a really nice lens for paintball. Of course, this also means I’m broke.
Well, the day finally came where I had to pack up for the long trip down to SC Village for the WCPPL Event 2 tournament. I grabbed my computer and my camera, jammed some Eggos into my mouth and set off down Hellman Avenue and started my five minute drive to the field. I’d like to take this time to say that even though John has to drive for an hour and a half to come up here, my ride is worse because I have to drive on Hellman Avenue, which is probably the bumpiest road in the world.
This event seemed pretty laid back. There was beautiful California weather all weekend and it was nice to just get out of the house and watch some paintball. When the games started, I took my usual spot using John as a shield and started shooting photos.
I met up with a few familiar faces at SC. I saw my good friend Lalo reffing. I also ran into the guys from PB Gateway who ended up taking first place in D2. Congrats guys! After the win I saw Karen getting interviewed. She was totally speechless with a big smile on her face.
The only bad thing I can say about this event was the smell. On the upper field it wasn’t so bad, but the lower field was a big difference. While it doesn’t ever really smell “good” at a park surrounded by dairies and cows, that weekend they must have fed the cows something different, because it was nasty.
This was one of the better events I’ve shot. It was nice and relaxed with good paintball to shoot. This tournament has really helped me relax. Combining that with writing my diary, I feel like a completely
