SAMPLE:
THE ITINERARY / PACKING LIST EMAIL

Afternoon Campers!

 

This email will hopefully help you get a better idea of what the weekend will look like, what to bring and what to expect so save it and prepare any questions you might have  - so read up, email us with questions you may still have: LoriBKIPaintball@Gmail.com

 

So some questions we have been asked already include:

 

Can parents come and stay with their children? While we would LOVE to have our parents on site this year, restrictions do prohibit us from allowing them. If there are circumstances that we should discuss, please mention them during your phone call with Anthony and we can work out whatever is best and necessary.  You can stay nearby and we would suggest that you look into this local Campground: Minutemen Campground located in Maynard Ma or the closet hotel the Best Western Concord Ma

 

There are other area hotels in Concord, Waltham or Marlborough Ma but all will require your own means of transportation.

 

Laundry: We have a list of suggested items to pack to make laundry as little an issue as possible - we will have lines that you may use to wash and hang items. 

 

Showers: We will have a multi-shower unit on site - please pack essential toiletries! We will have common 3 in 1 bottles in each shower. 

Tent? Staying Off Site?

Either of these options are fine - please let us know your plan when we call you to work out arrangements! 

 

Packing list & Travel Info: 

 

This is updated information

Airport Shuttles!

 

ARRIVAL DAY: 

We will run them until 3PM on Wednesday July 20th so that we may get to the venue by dinner. Please plan to arrive at Logan Airport before 3PM in order to make the shuttle to the field. Dinner will be held at roughly 6:30PM

 

Return Flights:

Please book them as late as possible or just after 4:00PM. We will be running a tournament on Sunday Morning that we plan on wrapping up by 1:00PM - showers and packing from 1-3pm then heading to the airport.

 

 

TRAVELING WITH A TANK:

!! you must check it and remove your regulator (local shop can do for you) attached to your email is a TSA paper you can print and put in your checked bag with the tank to explain 

 

DRIVING ADDRESSES: 

This can get confusing - but it’s easy once you know!

 

Our playing field is on the grounds of the Maynard Rod and Gun Club. 

There is a town line that runs between the two parts of the large property. 

 

DROP OFF & PICK UP ADDRESS is 45 Old Mill Road in Maynard Ma 

That is the site of sleeping / eating / tom foolery 

On Wednesday you may arrive / drop off after 4PM and ideally by 6PM 

To pick up and drag away sad kids on Sunday - you may arrive after 1PM 

 

IF you would like to visit the field - it is just down a hidden road from the gun club but it’s a path.

You can use our official address which is: 145 Powder Mill Rd in SUDBURY Ma 

That entrance is a dirt road across from a residential road called Tavern Circle

  • YOUR GEAR

  • We will have plenty of power available to charge phones / computers;

  • All of our fields have turf which means mud is only a small issue (if at all) in the common areas. While we won't play in downpours or lightening - we will play in the rain so bring visors and lids.
