Getting to do the AFPL 10-man event at CP was a blast. It was a really relaxed tournament for me, seeing as I was really only there to shoot Zombie Unicorn Attack. There was a lot of waiting around in the morning for me. I usually get up for tournaments around 7am so I can make it to the park at 7:15. This tourney was a little different. I got to sleep in, and doze a little in the truck on the way there.
When we got to the park, we set up shop next to the AF tents and I settled in to wait for the 10-man portion of this 3-tiered tournament series. Early in the morning, there was a 3-man, the middle of the day featured a 5-man tournament, and the day was closed off with the premier 10-man show-off.
I spotted our friends from Blitz. They’re always cool guys both on and off the field. The little brats from GoGo were playing 5-man. They had this 9 year-old little kid with them that could fill pods with the best of them. We gave him a ZUA shirt when he helped us out with our pods.
When it was all said and done, ZUA walked home with a second place trophy, coming in behind GNAR/Offmen who placed first.
Dear Diary, I’d like to give a HUGE shout out to Casey from AF and Zach from Mass Media. They braved the sidelines with video cameras in hand (actually on tripods) all day. More importantly, they did it during the 10-man. Ten people on each side of the field, each firing 15-bps… that’s 300 paintballs going into the air each second. It takes some bravery to be on the sidelines during that.
Well, I’d better go. I love you, Diary.
