Private Paintball Event at Hollywood Sports Park

We're hosting this event on L.A.A.P., O.C.A.P., LA Paintball, OC Paintball, Entourage MeetUp, and of course Facebook.  We already have enough people to make this a private group, and would love to have you join in on our fun also.

These rates are the best value among SoCal paintball fields, without any voucher restrictions nor mandatory paintball purchases at inflated prices.

*Self-equipped Player Entry & All Day Air = $20
or
*Rental Player Entry & All Day Air = $30 (You get semi-automatic marker, loader, safety goggles, and compressed air tank)

*A case of 1600 red Giant SC paintballs for $33 + tax (thick shelled balls designed for beginner markers like Spyders, Tippmann, & rentals)
or
*A case of 1600 yellow SC Hardcore paintballs for $33 + tax (mid-grade paint that will work well with most markers)
or
*A case of 2000 silver Evil paintballs for $40 + tax (premium tournament paint with brittle shells designed for high end markers)

Hollywood Sports is *FIELD PAINT ONLY*, and not BYOP. Giant/SC branded paintball cases from local paintball stores are ok (they cost $48 - $65 outside). We are getting sponsored rates on paint, so cost is only 2 cents per ball. "Normal" players shoot around 1000 balls on a full fun day, so around $25. 2 players can buy a case and split it.

***Good to Bring:

*CASH - We will pool our money as a group and pay all at once. This is always faster than having a line of people paying by card.

*Regular padlocks or combination locks. We will be staging from a shaded area with benches and lockers, not the back trunk of your car.

*Your own lunch, liquids, cooler, and snacks. There is a 7-Eleven right on the corner. An excellent Mexican restaurant is in front and only a minute walk away.

I'll be there for folks starting at 9:00 AM. If you want you can go to Time 2 Paintball in Artesia and buy gears in advance.  If you are a first time customer there...mention that you are a member and you get 10% off your first order on anything but paint. We will bulk purchase paint as a group from HSP on the morning of this event.

Hollywood Sports is a world-class extreme sport complex, and our private referee will efficiently manage our group for a full fun day. Last time our member Tin Man also helped to organize several VERY fun hyperball/speed ball matches with other groups at the field that day.  I enjoyed those VERY much so check out some of those videos from our last day there on our You Tube channel.

Check out our videos...I have several up from playing on their various fields.  Please also like us on Facebook to check out the free offers,contests, local news, and events showcased - www.facebook.com/retreadpaintball


Hollywood Sports is a very clean facility located conveniently in an urban city. You'll recognize movie props on the fields from films such as: "Mad Max", "Waterworld", "Starship Troopers", "Saving Private Ryan", "Godzilla", and more... If you have questions please check out their website http://www.hollywoodsports.com/ or email me.

The day of the event park your car and enter the park. Parking is free and you can walk in to watch for free also if you are just curious. Then walk around what looks like ticket booths out front and into the staging area itself.  You will see picnic tables and various buildings for the pro-shop, chrono range, group private rooms, etc.  Just keep heading back behind the spaceship, turn LEFT, and you will see covered picnic table areas with lockers.  I will be camped out in one of these areas with our white LA Paintball Meetup sign.  If you come between games I might be on the field. But I will be there between 9am and 10am and between each match if you need assistance or want to talk.  You may call or text me at (323)[masked] - I will try to have someone in the staging area for us by our sign and picnic table the whole day (might trade off so at least someone is there but I do still want to play also!).

I'm hoping that I will have some free giveaways in the form of paint grenades.   Again, I play every weekend but the goal of these events is to get folks out to play that may have not played before or haven't played in some time due to loss of interest or not having friends to go with!

Please join us...bring friends if you like...and I look forward to meeting you all!  Please RSVP so we can get an idea of how many folks we will have and if we can get even better rates for park entry/rentals (if you need them)/etc.

Organize your carpools, sleep early, and wake up on time that Sunday. Respect others, because our group cannot start until everyone shows up for registrations. See you all there.

    I've already deposited $100 for us this Sunday. With all the people who have RSVPed among different groups, this will be the largest turnout yet. Please sleep early and show up at 9:00 AM sharp, as that guarantees a smooth day for everyone. See you all Sunday morning at the locker staging area.

    I have to say also to everyone thinking about attending...that Tin Man REALLY helps us to put on a GREAT event and gets us some GREAT deals! I also want to emphasize that this event is VERY friendly towards new players, lady players, older players, and kids. The nice part about playing with a private group is that we have a LOT more control and can make sure that everyone has a great time. Walk on play is great but some of the players at these parks are VERY advanced or have incredibly sophisticated gear that can intimidate and scare new players to the sport that are not ready for that level of play. We work VERY hard to make sure at these private events that people new to the sport have a great experience and want to come back! It is through the efforts of our hosts like Tin Man that help make sure that happens! I love inviting new players to these for that reason and to share the sport we love! I will also shoot video that will be posted on You Tube so you can share them!

      Thanks for the kind words. As an organizer of 3 other MeetUp groups, I see about ~30 members have RSVPed for this paintball event. 8 females players expected so far. We still have over 2 weeks for our army to grow. I'm just praying for good weather on the 17th and the 24th.

    Member Michael Nguyen on the Declined list will also attend this February event. He just confirmed on my event page. Michael attended the last paintball event in January and had a great time. Do watch out for his hilarious antics with a "sniper's periscope".
