I.S.W.G. <--- Does anyone remember this field?!?!

I realize that this may date me...
But back in the day there once was a field named, I.S.W.G.
It was located just off the 15 on Indian Truck Trail.
(Close to where Jungle/Complex is now)
It was total "old skool" jungle ball!

Does anyone else remember that field?

There used to also be a field named "SURVIVAL" as well...but these have all since disappeared.

What did I.S.W.G. mean anyway?...
And what ever happened to that field?

Anyone else have this memory?

I did a little research online and couldn't dig much up on I.S.W.G. except for this little online article that mentions it in the first paragraph as being one of the first fields that "started the trend of paintball back in the early 80's." (Written by columnist Sean Takeda)

I dont remember what the the I.S. part of the name was.
We just called it War Games or War Zone.
Yeah it was in the Sycamore Canyon area there.
Super thick and lush.
Here's a video taken in '85 for Dateline about pb back then that was filmed there.
Some people I knew are in it.

Another clip

Here's a good History timeline.

http://history.paintballx3.com/

I played my first game in "83
This website has alot of the official History and makes for a good read.
Very few of us OG players still play though.

Your welcome.
I sometimes wonder if the newer players still want to hear about the old stories us old timers tell.
It's good they still do sometimes.

To me thats the most important 'job' you "old timers" have. To educate those about the old days, nothing better than hearing about the origins of the sport.

Talking to Wayne from ASG about his beginnings was some of the coolest stories.

Looking forward to meeting you one day Gilly, have to make out to one of your clinics.

That'd be cool CF01!
Once it cools a bit I'll be doing another clinic.
I've got epic stories of Bob Long's first games, the 1st speedball tourny, HK origins, 15 man woodsball tournys, all of that.
I contribute sorta regularly on MCB as long as people want to hear what I have to say.
Those of us that were there when this sport started do have an obligation to pass on what knowledge we gained.

Oh, Ive got a personal list of about 75 California fields that I've played through out the years, most are long gone now.
The tales of those travels are quite interesting.

A short list of out-of-state and out-of-country too.

Do you remember "woodstalk" in santa Cruz? I played with Navarone v Ironmen when I was twelve, back when practices weren't exclusive. Or how about Action Zone or Taps in San Jose? Good times.

Yes I remember. There were two "Woodstalk" named fields.
One renamed as Sequoia is closed temporarily.
The other, Roland, restarted up as TAG in Hollister.
Action Zone was a legit indoor field with a castle and slide.
San Jose has Los Gatos/Bearcreek and the FairGrounds now. Hard to find good woodsball in those wonderful mountains now.

Never played at March AFB. Played at plenty others though.

That renegade field off the 215 closed because the CDC found hunta virus in the rodents there.
