One more for Pub Crawling.......
April 16 and 17 brought us to Hopewell, Virgina for a 2 day scenario game based upon WWII called ‘Hellstorm of the Third Reich’. We love the field, SPLATBROTHERS PAINTBALL and the owners, Ronn and Don; because they put on a GREAT game and treat all the players like they are rock stars!
For this game Pub Crawling was chosen to play for the German side under the command of Otto from Team Krisis with Jet of BeBop as his XO: we were joined some excellent teams, Assault and Battery, Social Hazard, Death Dealers, and Black Wolf Core (I know there were others) . The Americans were led by Farva of SOVA and many fine teams, including: Capitol Offense, ISH, Tyrell, Rebel Force Pirates, SSK, OFU, and Port City Militia (I know there were others).
Over 400 players turned out for the game, which was held on weekend when there was a scheduled Tornado, yes I said Tornado…but the Tornado did not come, but the rain did cause the cancellation of the night game (which was fine by Pub Crawling, as it allowed us to head out for a few beers).
With missions being issued every 15-20 minutes by the generals for each side the game quickly turned into a classic scenario where some teams were fighting it out for territory and others running missions. Pub Crawling managed to be a part of both angles while at the same time constantly relaying information back to our CP (command post) about the current situation on the field.
By the end of day one, it was clear that we were not getting our ass kicked, but we were not secure in the feeling that we were kicking their ass; it was a fight. Day 2 brought beautiful paintball weather and the fight picked up right where it left off; hard and heavy. By the end of the final battle, where all the nutjobs come out and try crazy center runs for points, we were feeling like we had the advantage. Only the final score would tell us.
MJ (captain of Pub Crawling) took home the MVP award for the German team. We strongly encourage all players to get out and play this awesome field.
Next we are suiting up with our sister team from EMR Paintball Park, Joint Fury, in our ‘Unholy Alliance’ (with friends) and challenging everyone who attends the spring castle conquest game (April 30) to ATTACK us as WE are the DEFENDERS. We hope to see you there and continue our great season: powered by Planet Eclipse, Vforce, and a boatload of attitude, beer, and whisky (alcohol after the game only of course).Of course, we hooked up a young player with the Pub Crawling Prize Package with Planet Eclipse and Vforce swag!
