NPPL Memory Lane (Last Official NPPL Discussion)

Like most things that die out on NPPL. Pretty soon they will be taking down the forums. This is the final discussion.

Post everything NPPL:

Stories
Memories
Love Stories?
Good Games
Ref Stories

Anything NPPL.

NPPL Kansas City was fun. Watching paintball inside an air-conditioned stadium was awesome.

the pump event in HB was the most fun I have had in paintball in a long time.
don't get me wrong 7 man is great and I have a ton of great memories of it and 10 man before that, but I am glad they gave the pump players that chance.

One of more crazier NPPL moments that I will remember was the finals with Joy and Dynasty at Commanders Cup in O.C (2006). The controversy lasted for weeks. I will miss going to HB for sure.

I decide one week before departing from my home in france with a friend to go to huntington beach for the first nppl event of the year and our first ever american tournament. Me and matt are driving on pacific coast highway looking for the pier. We go quite a ways and we think we are going the wrong way until we see the pier and the netting on the other side! So exited now! Looking for a place to park the car! We get out and our cameras are in full auto (uncapped of course haha). We start to walk all the stands! Lots of pro players are walking around! I allways remember the statue of the lady upside down, when every time i went by her she had different stickers (lots of PEV´S) I put a bob long one! Now walking to the grand stands. Me and matt looking at the matches and then we see a weird gun!!!! Damn what the hell is that gun??? We see federof and Moorhead with it! It looks sweet! Later we found out it was luxe! We were there all the way thru the event! Got sun burnt and got to meet some girls! We will miss the NPPL as alot of others! We were lucky to be at the last event of the year comander cup! A great event but not as good as huntington beach! Any ways bye bye NPPL! Thanks for the memories, pictures and fun!
P.S Couple of pictures i love that we took in huntington beach!

The demise of the NPPL and the banning of paintball tournaments at HB was a double-punch in the stomach for me, and i am sure it was for a lot of other people. As lame or mellow-dramatic as it sounds, it was my dream to compete there just once right after i graduated.

Everything happens for a reason though. You never know, maybe something great might come out of this.

I never got to go to an NPPL event sadly. But my cousin went to the one in Boston and he braught me back a signed Ollie Lang poster.
