2014′ Paintball wargames

After two years of more cultural events, 2014 was the year of the return to the more physical activities for the researchers of my group. But, for this year’s outdoor event, we would have some special guests from a friend’s laboratory, at Porto University. To make the game more interesting, the team captains of each team was from the opposing research group, giving the students the perfect opportunity for some payback to their respective supervisors! Some with a few more, some with a few less hits, the game ended with a team duel in order to balance the outcome of the game. Luckily the day was sunny and with a pleasant temperature, allowing us to end the event with a nice outdoor lunch in a nearby park.
