Four Horsemen

Written by

William, what is the history of the Four horseman?
We formed in Bloomington, Illinois in 2005 as a group of like-minded scenario players interested in participating in regional events and playing at their local field. The team was named after the four riders in the book of Revelation, who are unleashed as harbingers of the end of the world and lead the greatest army ever assembled in the final battle of good versus evil.

Team Hawkeye

Written by

Jim, what is the history of the Team Hawkeye? When did the team form? Who started the team?
Myself, the field owner of our home field (Hawkeye Events) and one of our volunteer marshalling staff for recreational groups (Frank Oldenburg, who also plays X-Ball nationally with another team and who has played a pivotal part in training the team) started the team. We sat down one day in October, 2011 and decided to form a Paintball club in our part of the country as there was no club or team in our region. The team was formed at the same time we formed the club. The reason we also formed a club is because we wanted to get more people involved in paintball but didn’t want to make it mandatory to play tournaments for all members, so the way it works right now is that you become a member of the club and then decide if you just want to play recreationally or if you want to play in tournaments.

What are the team goals for this season and beyond?
The goals we have for this season is to make the playoffs in the Dutch National Scenario Competition. If we play as well as we did the last leg, we should make it to the playoffs. The goals for next season are to become number one of the Netherlands scenario-wise and also start up an X-Ball team so club members can choose which form of paintball they want to compete in.

Has the team won any awards or honours over the years?
Since we are a very young team we haven’t won many honours but we did manage to win the Northern Paintball Challenge as well as coming in 2nd place in the 3rd leg of the Dutch National Scenario Competition.

PaintballX3

Written by

Ed, can you give us the quick history of Oklahoma D-Day?
Oklahoma D-DAY started 15 years ago as the bunker army surplus business started to gain speed.  Dewayne had always wanted to show respect for his grandfather Enos Armstrong as well as pay homage to those that gave on the beaches of Normandy.  He began the game with less than 150 players and the rest of course is history.

What is your roll at D-Day during the year and during the week-long event?
As the Director of Operations I am basically responsible for everything that is D-DAY.  I am basically an extension of Dewayne when he is not physically present.  My job is to try my best to keep it all together throughout the year and monitor every aspect of the event.  From the staff to the field it is my job to make sure things are close to getting done.  Unfortunately that is an overwhelming task that more times than not makes me paintball most famous bad guy.  I am the yes, no person and the one that changes for the event go through.  So there is really nothing glamorous about what I have to do.  I can say that I have met some of the most amazing people in this sport doing this job and I am thankful everyday that I have had this experience so far.  Out of everything I have done in my life I can honestly say that this is the toughest job I have ever had.

Black Karma

Written by

Blake, what is the history of the Black Karma Paintball? When did the team form? Who started the team?
Black Karma formed the beginnings of our team back in the fall of 2007 with myself and Mike Tyler being two of the original members.  The team was born of very traditional roots in northern Alabama –son gets hooked, then gets father hooked, father gets friend hooked, friend gets brother-in law hooked, and so on.  We kept meeting up with a trio of guys out of Nashville at every scenario and asked them to join up with us since we were hanging out at every event anyway.  We have continued to grow from there with friends, family and players we have met at events along the way.

What are the team goals for this season and beyond?
Black Karma’s goal every time we pick up a paintball marker is to have fun.  If you’re not having fun, you’re doing something wrong.  Also, we strive to play with so much honor and integrity on the field it inspires others to do the same.

Has the team won any awards or honors over the years?
Black Karma has been honored to earn several Most Valuable Team Awards, multiple Sportsmanship Awards and many of our teammates have earned Most Valuable Player Awards.
