Close enough to attend without making special plans and on the beach! I went two years ago and enjoyed myself... This time I must keep my wallet in my pocket!

The National Professional Paintball League (NPPL) is kicking off the first event of the 2008 Super 7 World Series of Paintball in Huntington Beach, California. The 220 top paintball teams from around the world will be competing March 28th - 30th on six fields set up on the beach just south of the famous Pier Plaza and over 80,000 spectators are expected to attend.

Paintball is a game based on the traditional format of Capture the Flag. The exciting Super 7 format matches two seven-man teams against each other on a field about the size of a tennis court with a number of inflated shapes that offer some cover to the players. Each game lasts a maximum of 7 minutes and whichever team eliminates the other and captures the opposing teams flag wins the entire match. The action is fast and furious.
