Was nice to see all the improvements to Xtreme since my last visit. Staff was friendly and the place was well run. For a major event we would need the smaller fields merged. Adequate parking. Camping is a possibility but such details would need to be worked out with Joe.
"We used to play for silver
Now we play for life
One's for sport and one's for blood
At the point of a knife
Now the die is shaken
Now the die must fall
There ain't a winner in this game
Who don't go home with all
Not with all..."

Hell of a day for Stockclass play! OSG pump day, threat of rain, and uncontrollable work circumstances wreaked havoc on our numbers. Ultimately the fear of rain was unfounded, as the weather held all day with an overcast and humid morning, giving way to sunshine and blue skies for the afternoon.
The six diehards in attendance were treated to a mix of woodland and apocalyptic fields. Play was fast paced, frequent and phenomenal with around two dozen games on the day. Favorite fields included nuketown- an open field with a mix of broken down vehicles and buildings- and fort Xtreme, a castle field with myriad windowed walls and four corner towers.
Our referee Mac was friendly and accommodating. As he led us to one of our many games, a younger local was overheard asking about our gear, to which his ref replied “those guys are oldschool. You’ve got to have skill to play Stockclass.”
A large Stockclass event could be possible with the removal of field boundaries, and there is ample flat grassy space in the parking lot that could accommodate camping. But we’ll need a much better showing of numbers before I would consider setting that up with the field. As it stands now, future Stockclass events with Xtreme paintball will require pre-registration.
A big thanks to you fellas who were able to make it. You truly exemplify the Stockclass values of skill, sportsmanship and camaraderie. I had a blast. See ya next time!

Thunder bum bum
Glad you guys had fun!
OSG was minimal for their usual numbers, we had about 12 pumpers and ended up mixing with the walk-ons after lunch. Still had a blast, but it rained off & on for most of the day.
Art put some damn shoes on you hippie.
