Post Castle Conquest history

I thought a new pool to draw from might help me fill in the rest of the blanks. The original posts can still be seen at Castle Conquest history...


I'm a bit of a CC buff, but I'm looking for some help. There have now been 31 Castle Conquest played since the first one in the spring of '96. Unfortunately, no official records were ever kept as to who defended, what the attendance was, what the weather was like, or what the outcomes were... Here's what I have as far as the defenders go... and this is by no means etched in stone, it's mostly what I recall and/or pulled up on the net.


1996
Castle I - Defense: led by Swamp Rats (loss) Castle fell after 5+hrs/ Attendance 275(+/-)
Castle II – Defense: led by Joint Fury (loss) Castle fell after 6.5 hours/ Attendance 125(+/-)

1997
Castle III - ?
Castle IV - Defense: led by Can Con (loss) Castle fell in 58 mins.

1998
Castle V – Defense: led by Boneheads & F-troop (loss) Castle fell after 3hrs 45mins. Attendance: 401 (80 def/ 321 attack)

Castle VIII - ?

2000

There are plenty of CC vets floating around here, so any help would be greatly appreciated... and hell, drop a story or two. In game or post game...

Castle Facts

Oct 2, 1993: "First Annual Castle Siege" and "Rock 'N Roll Weekend with Triple XXX" at "Adventureworld" (which later became EMR Paintball)
_________________________________________
From Castle I through IX, to win a defense you needed to hold from 10am to 5pm.
_________________________________________
At Castle II there was a lunch break
_________________________________________
Castle X began the 3 props in 2 hours (6 props total) rule style
_________________________________________
Castle XX, the number of props was raised from 6 to 10 to celebrate the 10yr anniversary. The minimum requirement for props was raised from 3 in 2hrs to 4 in 3 hrs.
_________________________________________
Castle XXV required attackers pull 5 props in 4 hours to have a successful attack.
_________________________________________
Until recently, defenders could not move, stack, or set up any defensive positions until the morning of the game.
(I'm not exactly sure when that rule changed.)
_________________________________________
CC XXII was the last time players were allowed to use their own smoke canisters/grenades. Health reasons and such.
_________________________________________
CCXXVIII Defense falls in 52mins (official time) breaking the 12 y/o fastest attack record.

I think the official count on the spring 07 game was 1349. This is a great idea with as many regulars as we have there maybe we should keep track of this (Sticky) for future Castles also?

So you are only interested in the Castle Conquest as administered by EMR? The first one I ever attended was on the same spot, but it was called "Adventure Games" then and I think that was in 1993-4. I have a patch somewhere. I think Blue was involved by then, but he was not the full owner.

I have digi pics (of varying degrees of quality) for each Castle going back to 2000. Not sure what good they would be to you, but we might be able to determine the weather at least.



Also, not for nothing, but Castle XVIII was billed as a "joint" defense by DOTW and Carter's Commando.

Cheers,
D

Absolutely, history is history. I had no idea there was a pre-Castle Conquest version.


...and I'll be updating as we go.

Thanks for the help.

Also note that castle 22 was the last game where players were allowed to use their own smoke canisters, as there were some thrown inside the castle and causing health problems for defenders who got stuck in the walls.
