  • Delta Force Paintball

    100 Tsawwassen Drive South, Tsawwassen, BC (map)

    49.026051 -123.101639

  • Just learned about this place, and I've been eager to organize an event ever since. I'll need to gauge interest before calling them to book the day as well as to get some group pricing, however I remember it being reasonable and on-par with other paintball places. $19.99 admission (includes gear, training for beginners and experienced alike, briefings, use of the Base Camp, 12-14 games and insurance), plus the cost of whatever number of paintballs you want to purchase. Note: if you have your own gear they must inspect it first, and they only allow their own paintballs on site for insurance purposes.

    Delta Force offers a few unique twists that I've yet to find elsewhere, and why I want to go there. First, it's an all-day affair. We can bring our own food, order a few munchies there, or have pizza delivered. Secondly, they organize not one, but 12-14 different 'scenes' throughout the day, where we're briefed beforehand and essentially pretend we're on a movie set and/or real-life situation like prison buses, military tanks, forts, sniper towers, villages and bunkers. There's even the helicopter from Rambo II! For details: http://www.canadapaintballing.ca/game-zones/

    I was also impressed with their gear (full head helmets, neck protection, safety vests, and full-length camo suits), and flush toilets on-site. Plus folks who just want to come and cheer us on without playing, can!

    The location is easily accessibly by the 620 bus, where you get off just before the Tsawwassen Ferry terminal at Tsawwassen Drive S, and then walk about 650m along that road to Delta Force. We can definitely arrange carpooling too, for those who would rather.

    We'll be there rain or shine, and they do have covered areas in all of the courses - however you'll want to dress accordingly, bring some comfortable shoes, and a change of clothes for after. There are pay-per-use lockers on site to store your things as well.

    Please print out, fill out, and bring this form with you the day of the event to save everyone time: http://www.canadapaintballing.ca/wp-content/uploads/Tsawwassen-Registration-Form.pdf

    Just got a call from Delta Force, and they are unable to accomodate us. Literally just got off the phone with them, and emailed everyone who had RSVP'd yes. Looking at rebooking another weekend in October - feel free to let me know what other Saturday works for you guys.

    So sorry for the late notice, and I hope everyone gets this message in time!

      I was just literally getting some gear together for tomorrow when I checked my email and got your message. I'm definitely up for another weekend. Next Saturday isn't the best for me but I can certainly arrange to be there on another Saturday this month if given plenty of notice.

    I don't have contact lenses right now and have to wear glasses. They're not very big but I'm wondering if they'll fit under the helmet and goggles. Does anyone know? I guess I should have asked this before.

    • Bonny

      I've got glasses too, and have yet to have an issue with a paintball helmet or mask not fitting.

    Hi everyone, I'm new here, and this looks like it would be a fun first event.
    Sounds like this is a maybe still? Does anyone know if this is a Go?

    October 3, 2013

    • Bonny

      I'm the organizer of this event, and I'll definitely be there, barring any issues with transportation, at 9am. Hope you see you then!

    I really want to join you. This looks like tones of fun but I'm still nursing this ridiculously uncooperative foot. Are you going to have a cap Bonny? When do I need to rsvp by?

    September 22, 2013

    • Bonny

      I can, it's just that a lot of us (myself included) are taking the bus - a long trip for some - and it's difficult to get a hold of everyone at that hour to say yay or nay.

      I'm taking the bus AND ferry :) I'm coming over from Victoria where I live. But you're right it's not easy to contact everyone that early. I was thinking more along the lines of telling people it's off if it's raining and horrible and on otherwise beforehand so they can get up in the morning and look at the weather. But you're right even that might not be clear for everyone.

    I really wanted to go but I just realized that VCon is happening that day. Hoping there is another event like this in the future though.

    September 23, 2013

    • Bonny

      VCon is Vancouver's version of ComicCon, and I'm a bit upset myself that I'll be missing it! I planned poorly. Thanks for the heads up!

      October 3, 2013

    • James

      Oh, idea for another possible paintball meetup is Zombie Combat Zone. Suits the theme for Oct.

      October 3, 2013

  • David L.

    100 for $11.64; 500 for $55.40; 1000 $79.99.

    paintballs go fast, but then again you could get tagged early and don't get to shoot much

    There is a Groupon for this place, a couple of us from the Vancouver newcomers are going on oct 12th

    • Bonny

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing. The 12th is another big ESV event, so I'll keep this on the 5th. Note that the Groupon only includes 100 paintballs. You'll definitely want and need more.

    Would love to go but I work Saturday mornings.

    September 18, 2013

    • Bonny

      You can always join us late if you'd like Ben.

      September 18, 2013

    • Ben

      Probably won't be time. Would half to go home and shower & change. Probably wouldn't be ready till 1:30 then I would half to bus it which would be 2:30 - 3. That leaves a hour. No point.
