PAINTBALL BRINGS IN 2004
How was your New Year's Eve? If you were one of the lucky ones, it was one of the most memorable paintball experiences and New Year's celebrations to be had. As the clock struck twelve, the first paintballs began to fly throughout the world, celebrating 2004. A small sect of serious partiers looking for a memorable night started their New Year Eves' with a bang, with paintball! Toledo Indoor Paintball was one place that held an, alcohol free, all night paint shooting festival of fun for their New Years' celebration. It was a New Year's memory that the participants will never forget.
So, how was this once-a-year moment immortalized paintball style? Toledo Indoor Paintball (TIP) began with a large spread of yummy food to get everyones' energy up. After all, the paintball party started at 6 PM and would go until late the next morning. It was a fifteen hour party! Players began by running through paintball games and grabbing snacks in between. They were all warming up for the big moment, an adrenaline rush which would climax at Midnight and make them the players of the New Year. As the last seconds of 2003 approached, opponents waited with their teammates for the final countdown of the year to begin. All was quiet in anticipation. Who would be the first player to be shot out in 2004? Who would be the first to win? These individuals would be some of the very few on the planet to start the year with such excitement and thrill. The intensity rose as the radio blared sounds from Times Square, - 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1& Happy New Year! - At that very second, paintballs began flying, players began moving, and the game had begun. Some were shot out, but they stuck in anyway, not wanting to give up. Others weaved through objects as fast as they could, trying to miss the projectiles that would take them out of the game.
Players grinned and laughed with delirium. Those first few exhilarating moments of the year could not have been any better.
The night was not just about paintball.
It was also about camaraderie. The people, who had come together as strangers,
were one big group of friends by the time the bell dropped. Both young
and old participated. A father and his two small sons spent their New Years
this way, as did friends and co-workers. Some came alone, knowing that
this would be their kind of party while their parents were celebrating
in a more traditional way. Together, they all toasted with non-alcoholic
champagne and joy.
There was not just paintball to play
all night. A large card game
