The Black Rock. Over the centuries, many have heard its call. Some unknowing, others full well.
It is on the wind as you race forward, taking the objective. It is in the ground with the thud of the boot. It is in the sweat of the player, showing exertion for that final push and raises the flag high. It is in you as you stalk your prey through the forest to get the perfect angle for the shot. It is the surge of victory and the sapping weight of defeat. The Black Rock is all these things. It is within each and every one of us.
This year, the Black Rock calls again. It is calling you to come and fight, to stake your claim, and hold the line. Do you hear it? Will YOU heed the call?
The Black Rock. Show your heart, your courage, your skill and you too will be found worthy.
Black Rock is an independently run weekend long big game for and by the players. It is the proof of concept over many years of chatting after a game with drink in one hand and a cigar in the other. Of battling on countless fields all over. It is a call to arms that many are already hearing and planning to descend upon Sniperz Den in St. Paul, Oregon on September 17-19, 2010.
This weekend long event seeks to root itself in all the things we love about paintball. Good friends, intense battles, quick movements, and tactical thinking. You will have all of this at Black Rock and much more if you heed the call.
Teams from all over are hearing the call of the Black Rock. They will band together and face each other on the field of battle and afterwards tales will be told, hands will be shook, and glasses will be raised. The line has been drawn and before its end, one will be declared the victor and worthy of holding the Black Rock.
