Ok! when the st. johns water managment backed
off from wanting to buy the lower part of the
field, we started to build some more, as you
saw we started with the old fort and I came up
with the FT. Apache game idea with the four
flags, we let our walk-ons do that same game
about 10 diff. time for about 20 mins each
game, and they always got one or more flags.
we never figured that the 3 teams that sign up
for the series would hold the flags and i would
need A play-off, but it happen with two team
so! I came up the play off idea of both team capt.
doing a best 2 out of 3 game in front of the neted
area so the other players and team menbers could
see just how well their capt!. could play, it was
tex of the doom trooper who said tO use rental
guns. as far as the troopers holding the fort for
a longer time, the first game the black berets
were the defenders, the troopers were the
attackers, after 3 1/2 hours of game play. I saw
only (FIVE) WALK-ON PLAYERS that were still trying
to attacker the fort, all the OTHER attackers had
run out of paint, got tired, or when to play air-
ball like tex and them did. so I made the call
to end the game early and give the berets the full
4 hour game. the first game it was 25 defenders
to 150 attackers. the 2 nd game with the troopers
in the fort as defenders and the berets as
attackers saw a 25 defenders to 80 attackers and
that game lasted for the full 4 hours as the
berets were still trying to get a flag.
now the moster was born! two team tied???? now
the 3 rd team back out and did not show up the
day of the game, what to do now. I had 91
attackers standing around ready to play and no one
wanted to be in the fort. so i got some of our
field ref. who had ref the first two game but
wanted to play in the 3 rd game, to go in the
fort that was 5 players in the fort so far, then
came the sweet talking from me, my wife, and
others trying to get 20 more players to help
be a defender we got up to 21 players in the
fort now, so game on. they got creamed in 17
mins. so now some of the other teams that showed
up that day figure hey! it's maybe not that bad to
be in the fort, so here we go with a diff. team.
thay lasted about 38 mins. now time to do the
best of 2 out of 3 game with the capt. then some
walk-on games. as far as the bunker hill game
it was HOT! playing paintball that day, and
yes one team was going to have to walk a litte
more then the other team, being an OLD GUY
carrying an big old shocker with a 114 ci 4500
psi tank, I always ask which team has the base
nearer so i don't have to walk so far. did your
ask, guess not! half way thru the game some
players and capts. ask if we could move the red
base under the tree by the pond to get out of
the sun. " I " also made the call to do that,
" I " will make any call that makes the game
better and more enjoyable for the players, as
long it is fair for both side. and during the
game i was asking players, ref's what can we do
next game to make it better, I came away with 8
thing to change for the next game to make it
better, and may come away with 8 more things
next game to make it better, BUT! did YOU ever
come by and talk to me about any thing that
would help make the games better? guess not,
your must be to busy driving to ww with all your
ideas on how to make a game better huh! I can't
make a player happy if you don't tell me what
wrong, I have played the game of paintball for
18 year now, some players you can't make happy
even if you give them free paint,free air, free
entrys, free food, free rides to the base, will
take the hits for them, wipe it off, free rides
off the fields, free etc........... sorry you
