Sorry I haven't been around as much as normal but I have been really busy with my new (well extra) job. I say extra as I still do the old one too.

I'm now the European Team Coordinator for a company that manufactures Paintballs and Paintball equipment based in Canada.

As late I have been at a lot of major tournaments plus all the travel associated with my old job too.

Being a player of so many years it's like having your cake and eating it!

I will make an effort to put a few more hours asside each week for you guys - rest assured.

So do I - I'm due to sort all that out in Orlando next week - but now looking doubtful due to of flight costs (£756) because it is half term.

It was a deepend thing had to take it and sort out the details later - but it seems to be going well.

Don't worry m8 - I'm still doing the old one that is starting to get as frustrating as hell!!

Someone gave me a piece of advice recently when I was in two mind whether to accept a full time position with Procaps...

"Don't doubt you can do it - go for it. If you look back at life eight out ten times you do something you have probably succeeded - so why not have a go."

I didn't take the full time position but opted for the one I have with an option anytime I want. I didn't get a major payrise or anything like that but I succeeded in my own way. Stability of the current Full Timer and fun and a possibility of more with the part time one.

I'll probably burn myself out by 35!
