March 2011, our busiest year to date.

Well i do like to keep things up to date, but with March 2011 being our busiest to date, our blog had to take a back seat unfortunately. We have been doing lots of school's activity work including a great wilderness bushcraft canoe camp for a school in Warrington,

What, we have to do our own washing up?
followed by a fantastic two days of night navigation, hill walking and scrambling with a BTEC group in the Langdale Valley.

The weather and the views from the top were outstanding, if only every hill day could be like this.

We were out for a good eight hours and a brake in the middle to complete Jacks Rake was a great way to break up the walk.

 March has also been busy with stag parties this year, must be a lot of weddings coming up! what recession?

And just look at Dave and Aaron with this gorgeous girl on a recent stag party doing archery and rifle shooting in Lancashire.
One very brave bird!
We finished off March with a great raft building session with Pizza Express from Kendal, a great bunch of people who really do get stuck in.
Not the normal warm up for raft building
A well built raft
Its been a great March and we are looking forward to all the work in April, why not see what we have going on at

Paintball stag party 5th March 2011 in South lake's

The popularity of our new South Lake District Paintball site Near Torver is growing week to week. This weekend saw another stag party joining in the fun with a morning of paint ball followed by an afternoon of Gorge scrambling and canyoning.
The stag group getting kitted out at the start
Although the group were a little hungover or as one put it "I've got food poisoning!" they pulled out all the stops to give the stag a great day and a lot of bruises to remember it by.

Things got a little rough with the group doing the traditional stag hunt! oh and best man hunt (we wouldn't leave him alone now would we!) the two lads took it in there stride even after taking around 1000 rounds at pretty close range.
A happy stag, notice the orange hard to see outfit!

New Paintball Venue in Torver near Coniston

Well it's been a long time coming but we finally have a new home for our paintball in the Lake District. The new venue has everything needed to make for a great session of paint ball in the Lake District. Whether you are staying in Windermere, Kendal, Keswick, Ambleside or Bowness, our new site is in easy reach.

Game Zones include my particular favorite "Ambush Alley" its an old railway cutting with steep sides, plenty of cover for the teams above but not a lot for the teams below.

With prices for a three/four hour session at £18 including vat with 100 free balls and extra balls at £5 per 100 after that, we look to be the cheapest paintball organiser in the Lake District.

If its fun you want with a relaxed but SAFE atmosphere then we are the paintball people for you.
