Difference Between Skirmish Paintball and Laser Skirmish
Serious High Intensity = PAIN (only if you get hit)
Definition of paintball
A game in which two teams try to capture each other's flag while defending their own using compressed-air guns that shoot paint-filled pellets. (Merrium Webster Dictionary)
Each person is issued a paintball gun which is actually a low powered air-gun that fires small gelatin capsules filled with starch and food colouring. After the rules and safety procedures are explained both the teams are sent out into the bush and the game begins.
Points are scored by tagging or painting the other person and the team that scores the most points is the winner.
Sometimes the tagging can leave a bruise that will fade in a few days.
The idea of course is to NOT GET TAGGED if possible.
Skirmish Paintball can only be played by those over 16, and both males and females can take part. Full face masks, safety goggles and camouflage overalls are provided for safely maneuvering through the bush.

Laser Skirmish - Feel like your in a real life 'shoot em' up' computer game without getting hurt.
Low Intensity = NO PAIN (Family Friendly)
Peter Robinson Challenge Paintball and Laser Skirmish
"Laser Skirmish is a new sport using the latest technology. Because the units don’t have a projectile, they are not firearms. Since there is no paint there is no mess. The lasers shoot further, up to 200 metres, are more accurate and are not affected by wind. Plus there are no legal restrictions on this game. With our inflatable bunkers you can even play in your yard, local park, oval, warehouse, hall or even inside your office.
Once you suit up, whether in Challenge's hired camouflage gear, or your own gear, you'll be kitted out with a camouflage baseball cap or Bush hat fitted with hit sensors front and back, camouflage face paint and drinking water.
A safety briefing and basic explanation of the rules and equipment is given, teams chosen and weapons selected.
There are various types of gun to choose from including the Morita, which is based on the design of the one in Star Ship Troopers and the Pulse rifle that resembles the one in Alien 2 and lighter machine pistols. Players are encouraged to swap lasers with teammates after each game so they all get a go with various ones.
Lasers shoot an invisible and harmless infrared beam, which has a range of up to 200 metres. The sensors attached to your hat and gun are what you aim at and the gun keeps stats on your lives, hits, eliminations, ammo, respawns (also known as spawn, respawn is a gaming term used to describe the action of a computer player or human player coming back to life after being killed) and accuracy.
Cool sound effects go off when you shoot, are hit, eliminated and when you hit and eliminate opponents. BEWARE, referees monitor games to stop cheats from hiding their sensor. They are also equipped with the god gun or controller that starts and ends games, programs health, teams or friendly fire on, respawns, reloads, with the ultimate power over life and death!
Your referee will explain the various mission objectives, boundaries, points etc. Games like Death Match, Save the Pilot, Attack/Defend and Hunger Games played on bush fields with trenches, forts, barricades and bridges, keeping you fully immersed in the action.
Most games incorporate respawns, so that when your gun screams and dies, you head back to your start base to respawn and re-join the troops endeavouring to complete the mission. The winning team at the end of the day claims bragging rights! They will have used tactics, teamwork, communication and planning skills to reign supreme over their opponents!
Be prepared to battle for major fun and excitement with an awesome day of Challenge Laser Skirmish!"

General Information - Skirmish Paintball and Laser Skirmish
What To Wear
Suitable clothes, remember that you are going to be dashing around in the bush, climbing over hills and if it is wet, scrambling through trenches of mud.
If you are not using camouflage gear then long pants and long sleeve shirt or jumper is best to wear for protection. Fingerless gloves are excellent when challenged with icy winds and a sudden heavy downpour.
If it is sunny then don't forget to take the sunsreen.
Bring a change of clothing along in case of inclement weather and a towel to wash that mud off.
Appropriate footwear would include a decent pair of well worn sneakers or perhaps a pair of hiking boots.
In the case of both games there is the option of wearing a camouflage outfit that can be supplied at the venue at a hiring fee.
Note, that this can be an excellent strategy rather than wearing that bright fluoro outfit you were given for Christmas.
What Is The Age Limit?
In the case of Skirmish Paintball, all players must be over 16 years of age.
Skirmish is open to players who are older than 7 years of age. 'Peter' from Challenge Laser Skirmish & Paintball states that they "Have had 75 year olds play, so there is no top age limit!"
This makes the game suitable for Birthday parties and fun
family adrenaline packed entertainment.
Laser Skirmish can provide your Business, Sporting Club, Special Occasion or School with a great way to to build team spirit, trust and leadership skills.
At the venues listed below, please note, that there is no alcohol allowed before or during play. BBQ facilities are available on site and there are eftpos facilities for your convenience.
