I don't know what is left of the team, but I see no reason to allow a 28 year old team to fall apart.

I have been out of the loop with the team ever since being banned from Bearclaw and all mppgames a few years back. The team took a we will not discuss it policy with anyone who asked what happened, I have no problem telling the story to anyone who wishes to know.

After bailing Bearclaw out of money problems I got a real good case of the shaft from mppgames and Bearclaw. Ben Torcilli thought that I was planning on getting Jim Lively back into producing games, which would be a good thing for the players and not so good for mppgames.
I believe that the Golden Guys made a bad choice with the direction that they chose to go on this issue. From what I hear they are now getting into airsoft.

Let us figure out how to keep what is left of one of the oldest teams in or sport together.

the team had a great showing at the may Bearclaw event. so i hope that continues. it is a awsome, convienant place to play so i is a preferred venue.

as far as your issues with the whole BC/mpp thing, it is and was between you and them, we heard your side, never heard ther side. PLEASE do not use this thread to vent.

you are welcome as always and still part of the loop, we just need to find other quality events like BC/MPP host and go. i personally do not want to drive 6 hours for a joke of a big game.

keep me posted on things and ill run it by everyone. some will go, some want.

peace!

I'd sure love to... Would be great getting back out on the field with you guys!

I'd have to go back to being a "rental gear" kinda walk-on... Every bit of my gear... Gun, camos, tools... were all stolen a few years ago. My camo fatigue shirt with all my patches on it... That hurt... There were some sweet memories in those patches. The fatigue shirt still had blue oil-base on the back tail...

Losing my 007 sucked too, since I finally bought one of those "six-pack" 12gm CO2 speed-loaders. Never even got to play with it... I hope someone spends eternity in Hell getting point-blank headshots from a well-tuned Nel-Spot!

Anyway, the next time I'm up in Nashvegas will drop you guys a note and see if we can't scare up a few newbies to shoot at! LOL

Later!

Yeah, I think I remember Bill... I saw that the field had moved but figured that Jim was still running it.

What happened to the Williamson County field? Jim just get tired of running it? Lost the lease?? That was a great field to play on... I still have my photos from the first weekend it was open, will have to dig them out and scan them for you. Remember that old dead-fall tree that we just stuck rolls of paper towels on the roots?? LOL The first few weekends of NSG that WAS the only thing at the top of the field. Jim ran the "office" from the tailgate of his truck, all the paint was oil-based so there wasn't any need for wash-water...

The first Saturday NSG was open Jim didn't even have enough guns for everyone that showed up! LOL The following Saturday is when I purchased my 007... $135 including the Uvex goggles I believe it was...

Wish my job hadn't taken me on the road... Would have stayed with the sport a bit longer, I think... We really did have a fun time back then!

Since getting the paintball bug again I'm on the search for a truly BONE STOCK, no modifications at all, early model 007. I want a good baseline to build my old gun back up and will stick to "stock and pump" games. If I find one will let you know how it's working out!

TTUL

And I did realize after posting that that me and Wayne were not in the Horsemen Squad... We were the Lightning Squad... It just took a few minutes for the old braincells to kick in... LOL

they started building homes around the area and jim was forced to move on, he sold the company to a guy that played and they ultimately shut the field down and he moved it to lebanon, it slowly died and the true NPS is gone, some guy stole the name and opened a field in hermitage,

good luck on a 007, will be a rare find. the scenarios we play are pump friendly, have a teammate that shoots such now. ill keep my eyes open.

peace.

Does Bill have a storefront? The last paintball store in this area went out of business last year. I would much rather spend some money keeping a local brick and mortar in business than buying stuff from eBay or an online store. I had heard of a field in Hermitage one of the last few times I was up visiting Little Jacquie (who isn't little anymore! Urk!). Haven't seen anything on it, just that it was in business.

Too bad about the Williamson Co field. There were some really great games and tournaments played there. That field should have been put on the National Historical Register! LOL

James, there is a diffrence between folks who were on the 1986 NSG RidgeRunners team and the folks who joined the team latter. 1986 team players were given a gold stripe, not to be confused with the RidgeRunners gold team who came about in 89 or so as a 10 man team.

Paul Garrett was an 86 team player, he is in the photo of the 1986 Nashville RidgeRunners on the video game.

I got a Gold stripe and played in 86 I think
And still have it and my SADF patch to and
It was 15 man teams then 85, 86,87 I think
This is the gold that I have in my Avatar
and it's the only one that I know of and it was 15 man that we put them on.
And not all got them best I can recall. ALL I know is that was the day the game was just a game.
Fun thats gone and well allways be missed just happy I was there to have been part of it.
