Published on: Feb 03 2017 by hikingclub


The hiking club organized a paintball event on January 27, 2017. There were around 16 students along with the coordinators Prayush Shrestha and Kriston Pal. In the beginning, the participants were informed that the event was going to be held in Sanepa. Unfortunately, the venue was changed. The paintball was changed to Chobar at the last minute.
The moment we reached the venue, everyone started preparing for the game immediately. There were different types of equipment such as paintball guns, paintballs, and paintball tanks on the table. Later, the instructor gave us tactical vests, helmets, goggles and chest protection to shield ourselves. That paintball gear ensures safety while still allowing us to move around comfortably during the game. Then the instructor tutored us about the rules and regulation of the game. He repeated the rules twice so that we may not hurt the players. We took some group photographs as well. As soon as we took the photo, we hurried to the battlefield.
There were four groups and each group had four members. First, two group started the game. At first, the groups were at the opposite ends of the battlefield. When the instructor blew the whistle, the game was on. Everyone started to take their position as per the plan. They started to shoot each other while protecting themselves. The experience was as if we were on the real battlefield. Some of them were even crawling on the ground. Everybody was participating and enjoying the moment. The first game was between batch 2018 and batch 2019 which was won by batch 2018 ‘A’. After that another match began between batch 2018’B’ and batch 2016. Batch 2018’B’ was able to defeat the other group. Finally, the winners got the chance and 2018 A. We were the winner of the winner. To make a fair decision, the coordinator Prayush Shrestha gave them chance to play. Everyone was willing to play for a while but due to the limited time, we ended our battle.
But it was not the end of the event, the hiking club sponsored the lunch. Everybody ate what they want and enjoyed the game as well. There was a transportation facility to the student as well. The hiking club should frequently do such kinds of events.
