There’s no I in team but there is in Paintball
“The nice thing about teamwork is that you always have others on your side” – Margaret Carter: Democratic member of the Oregon Legislative Assembly from 1985 to 1999.
When everyone here at ecodek was informed of a teambuilding day at Outpost Paintball, we all thought ‘it won’t be painful; it will be fun, we’re a team after all, aren’t we?’
Well, we couldn’t have been more mistaken…
Now, don’t get me wrong when all 18 of us turned up in our Rambo – like attire we were a little nervous but once we were divided into our teams and all kitted up, it was full steam ahead!
And I think we worked well in our assigned teams (apart from the odd ‘accidental’ hit of a fellow team mate and not to mention the attack on the marshall – but we won’t go into that).
But just as we were feeling ‘more connected’ as a team, we were told that the last game would be every man for himself. And that’s where everyone’s true colours really shone…
So, my advice to you if you’re thinking of going paintballing is: don’t do it!
