I'm 33 now and I live in New York City. I'm a freelance writer and actor. You've probably heard my voice on the radio doing commercials and you may have seen me on TV in a commercial or two. Currently I haved a development deal with Comedy Central and if it goes, I'll share that experience with my fellow ballers.
I love being in the woods. I love paintball. i love the kinds of people I've met through paintball. I love the overall vibe that woodsballers and scenario teams have. I love video games like Morrowind and Halo and my fellow nerd friends and I love to play board games like El Grande and Starfarers of Cataan. I love being a nerd and I think that everyone should embrace their inner nerd. Don't fight it--nerds have fun.
I would like to join a scenario paintball team this year, but I don't have a clue how to do it. I'd be availible for the games close by like anything at EMR or Skirmish or ET or On Target Paintball...Anything in the New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New Jersey region.
I'm looking forward to getting to know more scenario ballers and I think it will add to the experience at these events. Peace out and play safe!

Name is Bill Shackford and im in New Haven Connecticut. Im 26, married, and a Graphic Designer at Garrity Industries, Inc. (Garrity Flashlights, Life Lites«).
Just recently started to play paintball. Use to play Laser Quest a lot. Went to a few tournemets(NACs... er regionals.), even worked there for a bit. But now im into paintballhappyfuntime. I have a Tippmann A5 with Flatline that i bought used from one of the secretary's, at work, son. Usually play on some wooded areas in the middle of no where or at Hogan's Alley Paintball. Prefer woodsball rather than speedball.
Also addicted to Halo and Halo 2 though im not that great at.

My name is Zach, and I am very new to the sport. I have only been playing since the first of January, and I wish I could play every day of the week. I live in Arkansas and we play in the woods out behind my house. Right now there are only a handful of us that play, but we are trying to spread the word and get people to join us. I am shooting a Tippmann A-5 with E-grip, Comp Air system, and a Flatline barrel. I am hoping that some day soon I will improve my skills enough to join a team. (anyone looking just let me know).
Have a great day everyone.

I live in Coventry, CT. and I've been playing since '88 while I was still 29 years old.
I was mostly woodsball, since that's all there was but Strategy Plus in E. Hampton ran tournies and I played with the Big Dogz and the Tazmanian Devils up to the early nineties.
Mid-nineties I found Scenario. I had gone down to Wolfs Lair (now EMR) and up to Canobie for their big games but they just weren't close enough to make it worthwhile.
In '96 I went down to Survival New York for the "Good vs Evil" 28hr game and I was hooked. The following year I played the Good King and led our team to victory. I did the same the next year in the same role as King and had my picture in Paintball Sports both years.
'99 was the Y2K Crises and I played an American Colonel. Our side won that one as well and there was a one-day re-match that December. That one was fun, it came down to a tied score after the 8hr game. It was finnally settled by a 5-man speedball match. (I had an article published on that one)
2000 I went down and was a General once more, as a Russian this time in the "HeadHunter" scenaro. I pulled a few stunts that game, and had a bounty on my head for the next two years at those games.
2001 was the Survival Island game where I was one of three headmen of the Red Triangle Tribe. (and had another article published about it)
'02 was Eastern Strike where I was Colonel for the American team. The game Operator (Frank Coppolla) became an Objective for our team and I've got pictures where we had him hog-tied in the parking lot.
'03 was Special Ops and I led the Rangers, but the game was called during the night due to weather. High winds and rain we could deal with but lightning strikes on the field were too much.
I didn't go down last year because they were getting away from the role-playing scenario type games and more of a simple big game format.
But by then Wolfs Lair was EMR and doing more fun stuff. I had gone down for Quest in 2000 to see the grand opening of the National Paintball Museum.
I've been back many times, usually for Quest but also the Lord of the Rings games put on there by MXS. The first year was '02 and I played the role of Tom Bombadil and together with GoldBerry (played by LadyMarshal) we took second place in the costume contest. Second year I was Treebeard and won 1st place for the costume. In '04 I brought my 10 year old daughter and she took third in costume and MVP/young guns for our team.
The Spaghetti, Meatballs and Mayhem game I played FBI with Jim Masse, who was playing as J.Edgar Hoover and had to play wearing a dress.
EMR again for CC XVI, the all-pump defense. And CC XVII this time as an attacker.
Of course Pump Pandemonium last year and this year I've been put in the hotseat as General for the Pirate team at PP 2 coming up in August.
There was a game I played at Madmans Realm in Chicoppee, MA based on Red Dawn. I was one of the Wolverines and was given the MVP trophy for our team
Strategy Plus in E.Hampton, CT has been doing scenario for a couple years now. There was the Good Vs Evil in the Summer of '03, that Fall had the Halloween game and Shelob the Spider was there.
Spring in '04 had Zeus vs Hades where I was a God. Posiedon to be exact. The War of Attrition was there in the Summer and in the Fall they had Beowolf, where I was handed the Generals Role as Grendel while walking out to the field. It was a tough fight but we won that one by about 200 points. I also played there last Dec as the Grinch where we beat Santa during the final battle.
Fox 4 paintball in Upton Ma is doing mil-sim games now and I've done three so far with Axis vs Allies, G.I.Joe vs Cobra and Barbarossa.
There have been many other games at many other places from Adventure Games New Hampshire to Ford Ord in CA, even playing at the World Cup in FLA back in '98 where I actually was able to meet people like Glenn Palmer, Dan Colby and Bob Long. But I can hardly be expected to list all the woods games or even the tournaments I've done. The past couple years I've been playing Pump in tourneys with Pump Fiction, and we do all right. Being the only pump team we took seventh out of forty two teams in Novice division during the '03 season here in CT.
I still do some tourney, I try to get around to find scenario games and if you're in New England I might see you somewhere.
That ended up being a little more than 2 cents, didn't it?

my names tom nickname turbo or turbo tommy.I'm 27, yea getting old! I live in york pa.I fix BMWs for a living, sounds cool, but alot pf training and headaches! I've been playing since summer of 04. been hooked since, but havent had much time to play. currently shooting a spyder tlx that I took apart to powdercoat black, but its been too cold out. I'm also building a spimmy, timmy conversion. I also have a little one on the way, so thats making it more difficult to get out and play, not to mention finish my spimmy. I also race rc cars, hunt,drag race and fix cars on the side for extra cash. every little bit helps. My friends and I usually play in taney town md, or we're going to set up some outlaw games this summer when the weather breaks. I have permission to play on 1500 acres. That will be cool.
Play safe, play hard, never be seen one shot one kill. Take care everybody.

I have been playing this awesome sport for well over 15 years and everytime I go out it always feels like the first day. I feel that this is one of the few sports where true team work, comraderie, sportsmanship and intestinal fortitude ( guts) are achieved. I am proud to be a participant and prouder to be a baller.
I have several paintball guns but currently my favorite is my autococker '04 vertical that I have upgraded. Now that puppy is pretty sick. I am a firm believer that you really shouldn't have to drop your wallet to have an awesome gun. Start simple so that you can upgrade yourself and better understand your equipment.
Damage Inc. is the name that my squad members used as our squad name when I was active Army. It's now the name of my current paintball squad in honor of the great soldiers I served with. We are few, and some of our members are fairly new to paintball but paired up with our veterans they can be force to contend with. I've designed a team patch but am having trouble finding someone to do the the patches themselves. If any member can help please contact me with a post.
Well that's all for now. If your going to Stalingrade see ya soon. "FIRST IN, LAST OUT!!!!!!!"

Personally I like orange, in fact that is the color of my room. I also play guitar, and belive that the only true type of music is rock. A little Led Zepplin or Metallica is a great moral booster on any day. I love Hard rock, Metal, Punk Rock, and Classic Rock.
I've played paintball for about 4 years now. It mostly started with just rec. ball but then some of my friends got me into scenario games and I've been lovin it ever since. I've got a spyder fenix with a Viewloader 12v for a hopper and a Smart Parts All american back with a freak front for a barrel.
It's not a wonderful set up but it gets me by. I am about to upgrade though. I've also got a PT Junior for a side arm. I have a web-tex cross draw tactical vest to hold that in. If you have ever wondered about gettin a tactical vest, do it. They are wonderful. Two of the most important upgrades in scenario paintball are a tactical vest and combat boots. Wow, boots are so much better than tennis shoes. I played my first scenario game in tennis shoes and it sucked.
Well, good day to you all and keep on playin!
