Old So Cal field near SC village /Raahauge shooting range?

I am working on a video interview with Bob "Flex Hone" Fowlie and he describes the first field he played at as in the same area as the Raahauge shooting range. He says it predates SC Village and was in the early 80s?
Thanks,
-Dan

Maybe Field Games in Corona, CA? It had lots of bamboo. General Joe used to play there, iirc.

Yeah Field Games seems to be correct. Supposedly directly under Raahauge's trap shooting range.
Randy Kamiya told me it was mostly washed away after a big rain and that was the end of that. Do you remember playing there?

I vaguely remember playing there. I do remember that we preferred it over sc village back in 88 to 89 due to the really heavy bamboo overgrowth. They didn't have as many hard bunkers/structures, but the bamboo cover more than made up for it. It wasn't as large as sc village or warzone.

Some of General Joe's employees also reffed there, when his shop was still in El Monte, Ca on Valley blvd. I recall General Joe playing out there on occassion. I think they even had a big game in 88 or 89 when some of the custom shops came down like Palmer's pursuit and Carter machine.

Overall, I think we had more fun there until they went away, leaving us only with sc village and warzone by default.

That sounds like Field Games Danny.
Home of the California Bushwackers.
Bamboo jungles were it's trademark terrain.
We would get pelted by lead pellets from the trap ranges.
Imagine stalking around and suddenly getting a small rain of pellets near or on you. They would sound even louder smacking against the bamboo stalks.

I had my first experience in Big Game formats there when they hosted their Annual Buck-or-Rama Days. I want to say 87' and 88'
Something like 1,500 players showed up to play and only paid $1 to play.
So much paint would fly during the firefights it looked like sideways rain.
You would roll in squads of 100+ thinking you were secure when an enemy squad of 200+ would maul you LOL
I remember they offered helocopter flights to insert you deep into enemy terrain but it wasn't cheap.
Because we didn't have large capacity CO2 tanks back then I remember those that were smart carried an extra 12gr powered sidearm.
You just used so much ammo and air.
Good times!

Yes! It was Buck-O-Rama events that were the big games. Gilly was spot on about the pellets too. The constant sound of gun fire also made the games out there quite fun. I probably had the most fun at Field games and the old fields of fire in Valencia, off the Lyons exit.
