Sounds about right. The guy that opened Rock and Rumble made the decision after a drunken dare made on the ride back from playing paintball for the first time on Duke's field.
How many fields (commercial types) have come and gone over the years?
Hackett: Duck Ridge - gone (years to and from?)
Hackett: Sand Ridge - gone
Ponchos - (commercial field?) gone
Lion's Den - gone
Tontitown: Wild World - open
Mayflower: Paintball Arkansas - open
Russleville: Black Rain Action Pursuit - gone
Searcy: Adair's Adventures - gone
Greenbrier: Razorback Paintball - gone
Jacksonville: T-Square Paintball - open (1995 - )
Jacksonville: Rock and Rumble - gone
Dover: Xtreme Paintball (name?) - open
Judsonia: Splat Action - open
Magnolia: X-Treme Paintball of South Arkansas - open
I know there are many more, I don't mean to slight anyone - my mind is such a terrible thing to waste. There are many "field locater" sights, including one here on PBN but they never seem to be up to date. Help me out folks.
Did Duck Ridge become Sand Ridge or was it the other way around?
I know there was at least 2 other teams who showed up for a couple of them (APC)
The back of my 1998 APC shirt shows Team Phoenixx and, how could we forget, Team 420! Can't remember where either was from.
That team from out of state (that did not show to ref the 1999 State Championship) was Addicted from Texas and there sponsor from Diablo called us the day before the event that they arent coming and that he was tryn to figure out a way to get us refs we ALL pulled together and made it work out...
We pulled people out of the crowd to ref. They took a lot of heat but I will always remember us pulling together and making the event work as one of the APC's shining moments.
Enough of my rambling here. I have a blog to update!
