It was at Sandridge Paintball in Hackett AR just out side of Fort Smith
It was owned by Brooks Israel (played for Dangerous Toys)

And the team we played against in the final game was Dangerous Toys.
And yeah Duke took a lot of shots to the head that game!
It caused a little uh......... well you know!!!
Malcolm didnt mean any harm in doing it!
Duke was more mad at the refs (a team called Outter limits from Oklahoma that the APC brought in to be unbiased refs at the last event) note: not sayn that they caused the stuff to go down

That team from out of state 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...

And the apc lasted 4 years (fall apart in the middle of the 4th year)
Champs for the 1st 3 years and field location
1998 1st Dangerous Toys @ Sandridge Paintball
1999 1st CYA @ Russellville Field we set up at a driving range (cool location)
2000 1st Dangerous Toys @ BRAP in Russellville

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?

Quote:
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.

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!

ASU was the first college to have a paintball class. I think it started in 1986, I know a few people that took it that played tournament paintball up until a few years ago. We also had the chance to have the first 3 NCPA championships here and have Brass Eagle build a field on campus back when the Regulators were around. ASU turned them down in order to build the softball/track/rugby fields in order to get more women to attend the school.

Ground Zero in Siloam Springs was closed in late 05 or early 06 (I believe), was reopened a few months later by new owners that were essentially clueless about paintball and then closed for good shortly thereafter.

That MAY have been when the new owners finally closed it down. I pretty much stopped going there when Jimmy quit running it...but all the college years seem to blend together these days . I could be wrong and probably am though.

I believe the earliest commercial field was located in Russellville. Razorback Paintball, right around the early 90's and open till around 96. It was an indoor field, not sure if they had an outdoor field. It was run by Duke and his wife and I'm drawing a horrible blank on her name and their last name. Two great people. Someone help me out. (I would love to see some pictures.)
Dont know if it was the first but I would be willing to bet my allowance on the field in Villonia which was a by god franchised member of Bob Gurnseys' National Survival Game.

It predated any fields in Russellvile which included (in order of opening) Ponchos War Games, Black Rain Action Pursuit, and Razorback Paintball by several years.

Players such as Chester Gaye would take Splatmasters and eventually Nell Spots and play for hours shooting less that 10 rounds per day.

Or so I have been told by some old timers.

I was hoping Pineapple would have found this thread by now. He can tell us about the Villonia days and a whole lot more.
