Of course you know, this means war – at least at Surrey’s Ambush Paintball, where August is the peak of paintball season.

This past weekend (Aug. 10), teams of 50 players fought for control of the field and forest battlefield in Operation Pontofar.

The woodsball event, organized by Surrey’s PBL West Paintball, was a scenario-based competition, with specific objectives for players with red (insurgent) and blue (regular) armbands, as well as re-spawn opportunities for those hit.

The fun’s not over yet.

Upcoming at Ambush Paintball: Vancouver Paintball League’s E5 Summer Showdown on Aug. 23 and 24 (with open practice Aug. 22). Competition takes place from 2 p.m. to dusk.

Ambush Paintball, which hosts paintball year-round and has a fair-weather speedball arena, is located at 7550 160 St.
