It was an awesome event, I had a great time as did my whole contingent (11 of us in my campground). We brought a French exchange student who took it as her personal duty to claim the French flag objective, which she did on Sunday morning!
Saturday things did get a bit out of hand with some hot headed stupidity, but the folks running the event did the exact right thing, stopping play and letting people cool off, explaining to everyone what had happened and why, then restarting. Safety first!
I played until 3am the first day when my marker chopped. Myself and 2 buddies held the box on the hill as the sole no-band players for three hours against all comers (which we started to suspect was the same two guys coming at us again and again from a different angle each time).
A tactic taken from my DOD machine gunner experiences was pretty funny: When you've got the drop on a line of 6 players lined up on the riverbank preparing to rush across (I was in a tree looking down at them), start shooting at the last one in line and walk your paint stream up the line to the lead player. That way none of them get away!
I'd say it was well run, issues and bumps were dealt with quickly and fairly. I did notice that not all the ref's applied the rules in the same way, but I talked it over with the owner and things got straightened out. The organizers were respectful of the players and firm with the rules. I'm happy to hear about the points being close, I couldn't get my sorry butt out of my bag on Sunday morning and my buddy who did, said that the bands just ran over us Sunday morning.
I personally didn't mind the late night partying (earplugs), but would worry if I'd brought younger kids with all that going on. They should consider separate areas for party and family campers if possible.
I hope we can get more people out next year, but I know I'll be there!
