When it rain, it's four!

Well now Mr. Meteorologist guy, have you solved the mystery why weekends and rain has this mutual attraction with each other? Saturday morning, the sun is all up, plenty of light and heat and all it's glory. Afternoon came and so did the dark clouds. Eight games rolled, and even before we could call it a day, rainburst chased us all over the field. Teams had to compete with intermittent shower throughout the remainder of the play and more rain came to bid us goodbye in the end.

There is not much you can do when it is raining. At least, that's what i'ved learned during a stalking game, so I let it be. I let the rain fall down on me. I let the rain kiss me. I let the rain beat upon my head with it's silver drops. And amidst the chaos it brought to the game, I let the rain sing me a lullaby and it brought me peace.

Many thanks to Rameses who supplied the much needed sector gear. Much to my delight, the replacement part is a genuine TM, so I can say, my Veronica is still a full blooded Musashi!

When it rains, it pours!

August the 28th, 2008, Monday. My ever reliable secondary weapon, the TM HiCapa 4.3 went dead! My combat boots, a veteran of so many killing fields got ripped! And then, that same day, after 6 years, Veronica finally went into a, literally speaking, grinding halt. Her gears suffered a major damage, particularly the sector gear which gives power to the piston head, gear teeth got broken.

The culprit, a worn-out sector gear.

Congratulations to NC's DMC Squad

(For being hiatus for almost a month, i missed a lot of things and I need a lot of catching up to do.)
I wrote this entry way back June, and I am gonna post it only now. Sorry guys. ü )

NorthCamp's Delta Mercenery Crew (DMC) Squad placed 2nd Runner Up in the recently concluded airsoft speedball competion during the TransCo Anniversary last June 26, 2008 at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon City.

Six teams filled in for the said event with Team Lost Command (TLC) emerging as champion, TransCo Airsoft Group (TRAG) came in as first runner up while team DMC landed second runner up. And for a rookie squad (DMC) and entering on their first ever airsoft competion, that is quite a feat.

The DMC contingent: Loloy, Dhudz, Janno, William, Bhing, Eric and Menrick.



Today I did something very significant.

I forgave myself.

I forgave those I thought wronged me.

And most important of all, I made peace with God.
