I have to chime in. I'm old.
Let me see if I can remember all the teams from the APC
Dragonfire (yes we were bad, and had ultra cool uniforms)
Select Fire were from Lion's Den
High Voltage, Black, blue, and red were from Duke's field
Gypsy Rain/Point Blank from T2
Dangerous Toys, I think they were from Duck Ridge/Sand Ridge
Refs Gone Postal from Wild World
CYA from the Pure Energy field in OK
Kaos from Paintball Arkansas
I know there was at least 2 other teams who showed up for a couple of them, but I can't even remember who played on them. Did the Small Soldiers ever play in the APC? I really wish something like this would get started up again. Teams are just so freakin flaky.
Mick, I think Dale broke at least one bone in his foot every year he played. He was always playing hurt. The first APC at Wild World was the first tournament I had ever played. Kaos was the only team we beat that day. They were so hung over I don't think they were capable of doing much. It was a great day. One thing I remember the most about that whole series is how helpful Dangerous Toys was to my team. If we ever had gun problems, hopper problems, whatever, they would help us out. I really respected those guys for helping out a bunch of newbs. Has anyone spoken to Nate lately btw? I haven't heard anything from him in a long time.
Ed, I remember the first time Dragonfire beat High Voltage. It was like we had won the World series. Good Lord we sucked back then. There was no such thing as practice. Beating up on the local newbs was enough
It is making me laugh just thinking about the way my whole team didn't care if we won anything else that day. I really miss watching Curtis play. He was a really good player. Have you spoken to Werm or Germ lately? I haven't heard anything about them in a while either. I know that Justin Owen graduated from UAMS with his degree as a brain cutter. I see a couple of the guys from Select Fire around every once in a while.
Ah, sweet memories.
