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.
