Paintballing in Santa Clara

Time: 11am – 5pm

There are several ways to get there and right now we are trying to figure out the most convenient. Depending on the amount of people attending, the best opportunity seems to be car pooling as it only takes 1 hour to drive there. However, it is also possible to get there by train which takes 2,5 hours.

Your ticket includes: Admission – Semi-automatic paintball marker (tank and hopper included) – Battle mask/full face shield – 500 paintballs – Unlimited air to power your equipment – Chest Protector and Neck Guard included for free with package! – Training: the game, how to play, rules, and safety (approx. 15 min) Read More>>

NBA Basketball: Brooklyn Nets @ Golden State Warriors
When: November 13
Time: 7:30 pm
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland
For everyone who loves basketball, this is an absolute must. This is a rare chance to see basketball on the highest level when the Golden State Warriors, the bay area’s team, face the Brooklyn Nets from New York. Both teams played in the playoffs last year but didn’t achieve their goals, so we can expect them to be very hungry this season. We will have the chance to see two of the best shooters in the NBA with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who play for the Warriors and recently won the Gold medal at the basketball world cup as a part of Team USA. In addition to that, we will also be able to see future Hall of Famer and NBA legend Kevin Garnett play for the Nets. There are also some international players on both teams. Read More >>
