View Full Version : Old school articles and pic's (56k rough)

Well in my last picture page post I had some pic's of the XPPL pump tourney series I was in and this goes along with it kind of. I went up to that tourney and formed a team through some pm's and email's on the nation. Well I ended up getting a guy that's has been playing since 1983 for a teammate. Well it turn's out he's been at pretty much every level of play you can think of and as of now doesn't play anymore but is a coach for an NPPL team called NTK (Naptown Killas out of Indianapolis, IN) which from what I have been reading are a pretty bad arse team.

Well anyway before we met up I asked about a team name and he came out and said his first team was called "Bang Gang" back in the late 80's early 90's. I thought it was cool as heck to bring back an old school team name expecially for a pump tournament so we went with it. We ended up winning the tournament and it's a series of six event's so pretty much it's set in stone the Bang Gang has been resurrected which I'm tickled to be apart of.

He sent me some pic's he scanned of what the Bang Gang did as far as placing and event's and team pic's with trophies. Reading up it look's like I gotta stay on my toes to keep the good record going lol!

Just a few pic's and articles he sent me!

This is an article on a game they played.

Team pic. My teammate is right above the team name.

He's right in front of the center trophy.

Another article not about the Bang Gang but about an event they hosted.

This isn't the Bang Gang but team Sewer Rat's which has the promoter of XPPL (he used to play for avalanche) and my teammate in it. The promoter has the bleach blond with black stripes and my teammate is right below him.

A team patch he scanned which he is giving me and the other teammate one at the next event which is just too cool.

Well anyway just thought I would post these up as I'm kinda thrilled to be apart of resurrecting a prestigious team from back in the early 90's.
