Cool! I am going to make it to a big game one day; hell or high-water. We have a scenario coming up here on the 22nd. Smaller scale, usually 60-75 players.

Once again, I seriously would not want to piss you off.

Might have to meet up with you at one of such events. Those prices are pretty fair, and considering I live in NY, I've been looking for scenarios.

Thanks. I just got finished uploading the rest of my digi's. I have 3 'purchased' stills the field photographers took but I don't have a scanner to add them to my PC. I'll see what I can do about getting them scanned and emailed to me.

and LMAO!!!

That "little girl" stands about 5'10.5" and is about a buck-seventy...lol. She didn't play, she was the photographer but she had a freaking blast and wants to go again. Her ankle was sore from Saturday and with all the bull **** going on, she didn't want to go back out Sunday and I wasn't going to make her. I'd rather her be safe back at the campsite, than getting shot through the goggles with marbles/reballs out of hot guns.

I've gotta ask. People were shooting marbles and reballs during a game? and they didn't get ejected and banned from the field?

One was arrested that we know of. The problem is that there were not enough refs to control a crowd that size. Of the refs that were there, 80% didn't do ****, even when it went on right in front of them.

Initially we heard that there were ~300 refs. Apparently (according to a ref that was there) there were only 75 "rostered" refs and then 35 "ghost" refs. Still, at 110 refs...80% of them weren't worth their weight in phlegm.

For a game of this size, there needs to be NO LESS THAN 300 reffs. With the numbers provided, 110 reffs for 4300 people equals a ratio of 1:40 coverage and that's riddiculous.

There was a list of 15 teams and 300 individuals who will never return to Skirmish. It was read off at the awards ceremony on Sunday evening. As far as I'm aware, that's a total of what was accumulated on Saturday and is likely a higher number by now.

Wow, just, wow. I'm surprised there wasn't any vigilante reffing done (butt-stock style). I hope the organizers make changes for the next game.

Who in their right mind would disrespect the sport as well as everyone there by using reballs or marbles? If I would have gotten shot by one. I would have handed out my own punishment. And would not have taken it easy on them either. It's sad they might have to start searching paint before you can play.

even if someone else suffered the hit i would have joined the beatdown commity. its not only the safty of the others in the game. but the safty of the whole sport. I would say thats a felonious assult charge at least.

what if someone whold have gotten hit in the mask u know the lense would have cracked from a marble or a reball especally close range.

Critical

A reball would definitely hurt, and probably break skin from close up, possibly could break brittle plastics. But, a marble should be considered aggrivated assault.

i am not positive but i could see someone being seriously hurt from a marble going 300 fps!
it wouldn't surprise me if they ruptured a vein or lacerated skin and muscle.
MARBLES....UNBELIEVABLE!
thats just plan scary really.
i wonder how much penetration a marble guts at 300 fps say on a mask or plywood?

druid

Someone should make an "editorial" video against these actions.

Launch marbles and reballs at a sheet of 1/8" plexiglass from 30 yards and have the camera trained on the impact point...perhaps on older masks that might get thrown out (field rentals might be a good idea for this)...

Do it at different velocities: 250 fps, 280 fps, 300 fps 350, 400 and 450. You could also use blocks of moist modeling clay and use a wire coat hanger and yard stick to show depth of penetration.
