Hey! I was there!
Great pics of the event. I did not expect them to turn out with such high quality. I was in a few of those pics too.
Me, all business.

The event was great. Our team, the Marauders, did well and made about $600. Each of our squaddies walked away with $35 each. Playing for money rules.
The North Shore Renegades and CSPO were all great to play with, as well as other squads. The refs did a great job. The entire event was well thought out and very entertaining. Supplying "paint drops", smoke grenades and maps for players was also very cool.
What sucked was the lack of netting at the front of the field, where anyone could shoot directly into the mask-off staging area. Absolutely unsafe and pretty lame. In fact there were plenty of totally unsafe areas without netting. I was warned before attending the event that this might be an issue, so I had my mask on most of the day unless I was in the parking lot.
There was a retarded amount of balaclavas on the field, and to this day I have no idea why they are so popular in British Columbia. There were also several players playing without face shields, only goggles and a balaclava. That should not be allowed on the field, period. There were a lot of safety issues that seemed to go ignored by the staff at Panther Paintball and that means I will not be attending any non-scenario games there in the future. I hope they get these things settled before the next scenario.
Thanks a lot for posting your pics Russianfrontphotos. It was a lot of fun reliving memories while going over them. CSPO rules.
