Someday I will learn to make pictures smaller.
Termite Smith is in the black t shirt on the first row I do not remember the name of guy also setting but he was the first person that I ever saw using a "raincover". Jessica Sparks is in the middle, Tim Schloss is back right side of photo I am standing behind him.
Delmorta should be able to name the crowd from St Louis.

Are y'all the folks that the Green Machine went down to meet in 88?
I do see a set of Tiger Stripes in the group.

I arrived in Africa in 88 and didn't meet the Green Machine. Some of the guys that are in the pic met those guys. I know that Fritz and Jon did. I remember them saying that they left a lot of their gear for them. Guns and camo since it was near impossible to get until I arrived.

Yes and they brought back some of the wonderful Armson sights that because of some silly trade embargo could not be found in the U.S.
I also notice alot of woodland camo in photo and only one set of Rhodesian which was SADF issue at the time. I wonder how the trading went between the two groups as both sides had things that were hard to come by for each other.

He talked about how everyone traded patches back then and the Ridge Runners patch was the coolest.
Since you have not dug up the patch pictures I will post them for you.

I looked through the whole thread and I'm surprised nobody even mentioned Ross Alexander (Line SI) standing to the right of Jim Lively. I see what I can find on pics and post some.

WOW I guess first I have to ask if that was a serious question, If not every heard of the Line SI Bushmaster or The Line SI Master Tournaments, Ross was Line SI and one of the nicest people paintball has ever seen.
