New England Perl Mongers Paint Ball Masasacre

Date and Time

Sunday, December 05, 1999 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm




Paintball Party!


The local PerlMongers (Perl users) groups are having a paintball event while Randal Schwartz is in town. We will be playing at Friendly Fire Paintball, located at 108 Grove Street in Upton, MA.

Cost is $25.00 for a rental mask, gun, CO2, and hip belt. Paint is sold separately.

Since the field can be difficult to find for someone who doesn't know the area well, we'll meet off of 495, at the Cactus Grille in Hopkinton.


(From the West)

Take I-90 (the MassPike) to Exit 11A-495. Take 495 South 3 miles to Exit 21B, W. Main Street / Upton. Go through the first set of lights, the Cactus Grille is 500ft on the left.

(From the East)

Take I-90 west to Exit 11A-495. The directions are the same as above.

There's a small bagel / coffee shop next to the Grille, so the caffiene heads of the group can grab some go juice =)


$25 per person, not counting paint. They rent jumpsuits for $5/day. You can get camo at plenty of places, but it isn't cheap- $20 for pants, $5 for a T-shirt (but it will be December!)
