Ah yes. Can you imagine, I missed nitrous and hit the damn pole in between Apparently even his plan was also not all that smooth. Was nt he the one who said his helmet was falling off? lol...

Guys, I know I'm getting technical in our meet section, but this is a general query to any verna chaps in chennai. I'm getting weird feedback on my steering wheel everytime I drive over poor roads. I'm pretty sure that my steering wheel was far more stable before.
I was hoping if any verna guys could give me a chance to compare with their car sometime to see if this is normal. Could someone please PM me?

Sorry for not making it to the paintball meet after confirming, I was down with fever and could not even get out of bed due to body pain. Will make it for the next one.

It was a lot more fun than I imagined. We were a total of 8 bhpians.
Apparently, Major Roy is planning paintball at Adventurezone. So, we could have a mega one there.

Question What is this paintball all about ?

could someone please explain to the uninitiated ( like me ) about this paintball stuff ? My mind is going haywire imagining all sorts of interesting stuff that can be done with painted round-objects.

In the pics posted so far, i dont see any paint and neither do i see any of those round-objects.

Senthil, You are better off calling it by its original name than trying to describe it with alternate names

Nitrous told me it was fun so lets plan another meet there where you , me and the rest of the folks who missed can attend.

The only way that could have happened was if Nitrous was on his Mistress and the rest trying to catch him, which is difficult especially with the Hyundais' not around isnt it Vikram.

no sharp shooters in the opposition team

we can do this anytime ( since its very close to my house ) but i find it quite expensive. first 25 balls cost Rs250 ( 10 a piece) and then next 25 cost 125 ( 5 a piece ) and you can shoot away these balls in a few seconds if you are trigger happy.

so not very value for money i would say. if any of u know these places and can get a good discount its worth a repeat visit.
