Mid season update.
Alot of things happend since our last blog, but we didnt forget about you, the followers, the fans, the ones who remind us what awesome things we do. On and off field. The ones who sometimes can’t stand another word about paintball but we always find an entry to bring it up.
So, before we proceed with current activities. A small summary of some of the things we did.
- Reffing and managing a Friendly Cup leg at our favorite indoor field: Bullet factory Oudwoude.
- Team BBQ’s
- Designing flag’s
- Visiting our Brothers from unknown mothers (thor) @ D19 for some relaxing none competitive shenanigans
- Kicking ass at the same field during their Friendly Cup leg. (second place) great day!
- Attending various fun day’s to help out Copinini Outdoor
- Helping out at our home field @ Leeuwarden, wich wil look great when its done! (will do a special about it)
And then there was the 23 of juli…. Friendly Cup @ Oldenzaal. Run by the Paintballwarriors and Team Fearless. We came to rack up points and deny some for the competition, in wich we succeeded. Barely. This place has something we dont get, we never get into our routines and everyone always seem to have an off day there…
The field is a mix of forest littered with bunkers and structures, with one long path on one side from front to back, wich creates a fast lane for flanking. And the color scheme matched our Planet Eclipse HDE perfectly. In theory everything that we need and want in a field. Except for the width… you can shoot from side to side with ease and this made defending very easy. Since you always know from wich side the enemy comes you can dig in and wait. A skill that most of us dont have.
Easy to say, we learned alot that day. And on the bright side, we scored double the points we did last year! Overall it was a great day with less rain then expected.
We also got some sort of tradition going on there, for 2 years in a row we introduced a new team member there. In 2016 we had Nick (Mc Beast) and this year we brought along Dirk (The Punch). Because the field was so narrow we could keep an eye out on him, but after 2 games we were convinced and gave him the long awaited Black Eagle Team Patch. (not for sale). Dirk proved himself to be a great addition on and off the field. You can find more about him in the member section.
Next up on the 13th of August is the Friendly Cup leg @ Undefined in Wieringerwaard. Where we need to score some serious points to stay in the race. We are ready for a great day at one of our favorite fields, and hope to see you there!
