On our way to practise this weekend, the plastic protection between the front wheels almost fell off and made a hell of a noise. What are three Charms girls to do? Just jack the car up and bring out the GEO keys and remove the darn thing. Problem solved! :)

What an absurd weekend of paintball and travel! We are all finally back home - after the storm in Malaga and the islandic volcano trying to keep us there.
The Norwegians got home after a 44-hour bus drive through Spain, France, Holland, Germany and Denmark and then 15 hour voyage from Copenhagen to Oslo. The Danes got away with the 44 hour bus drive and the Swede had an extra train and car trip too. But our poor Lithuanian had the WORST travel, both to and from:
TO: Plane from Vilnius to Copenhagen, rental car to Berlin, then Munic and then plane to Malaga - just in time for our delayed first game.
FROM: Train to Madrid first, then to Milan, got on a plane to Riga (I think) and then a 300 km drive back to Vilnius...
I guess we can pronounce the FLC winner of the "stuck-by-the-ash" trip to be Erika!
Here are some pictures from our "amazing" bus trip ;)

After standing around in the rain for the second time around today, the Millennium board finally called off all today's games at about half past one. As we were walking home, the lightning stopped, the clouds lifted and at about three, we could go out for a swim and some sunbathing by the pool.
Isn't it ironic?

It's a waiting game... Patience is the best skill for a Millennium paintballer at the moment!
We spend yesterday afternoon and evening waiting to play our 3 o'clock game. It got pushed back several times, because our opponent were playing a game on another field. Finally, when we were supposed to play, it was to dark on the Div 2 and Div 1 field, and we felt the conditions were unsafe to play in the floodlight. Result: God vs. Millennium - round 2: 3 - 0
This morning we were scheduled to play our 3 o'clock game at 7.30, but there was a blizzard. We just got a message from the Millennium, saying games will start right now. Pray the lightning won't strike us, cause it's right above us!
Pictures will come!

Well, well, well - the Gods are conspiring against the European paintball community. The volcanic eruption on Iceland has delayed a lot of team - including our own Erika, who got stuck in Copenhagen, but finally met some fellow shipwrecked (Chilli Peppers) paintballers. They ended up renting a car, driving to Berlin and are flying tomorrow morning - fingers crossed!
And then we have the weather in Malaga... We feel we had a deja vú all day. The wind is sooooo strong making it impossible to put up the netting. We just left the field and only SPL and CPL field has their bunkers. But the kite surfers are having a blast!
We are playing London Relentless tomorrow at 14.50 - if they are here? And then we meet Dynimix Metz at 20.20. Hopefully, Erika will make it to our first game - her plane arrives at about one o'clock.
So, here are some picture's for all you good people. As you can see - at least the weather hasn't influenced our usual good spirit so far!

So we finished our first day of practise in Uppsala on the Malaga field, first paint practise of the season - no snow and no rain (almost), great success! ;-)
We were so busy shooting people that we forgot to take actual playing photos so you will all have to do with weird pictures of us doing weird things ! Bare with us please - we will have more pictures for you tomorrow, and we promise to be much more serious and look much much better when getting our photos taken!
