Great bunch of guys. We camped with, partied with and played against them at the Big Apple open at SNY. I believe 1986.

You had to have played about 20 years ago to know and remember the Ridge Runners. I remember them.
The late Sam Caldwell was a 'Runner..

I always looked forward to them hosting the Masters at Hermitage Landing.

Cool stuff guys. Steve said he is going to look for his old patches and give them to me if he finds them. If he can find them, I will get lots of pictures for you guys.

He talked about how everyone traded patches back then and the Ridge Runners patch was the coolest.

Could have been Mike Buorgiorno who is heavily into MilSim. I believe he and some others play at Liberty Paintball.

We play Stock Class games a couple times a year now at my buddy Slims in Huntington, CT. Bringing back the old days one shot at a time!
