A few changes for 2009:
1) ROF capped at 12bps.
2) Air and paint will be ready at each Reinsertion point by the start of the game!
3) No cars/pick up trucks can be used as TANKS.

The Great Lake Crusaders vs the Midwest Alliance.
 

 
The year is now 2023 - six years have passed since Minnesota and Wisconsin border skirmishes escalated into all out war between the two states to protect their natural resources and production facilities which they utilize to trade with other parts of the disbanded United States of America for resources they cannot secure on their own.
 
Many large and potentially decisive battles have been fought over the past six years. However, neither state can hold onto the enemy territory for long due to supply lines being cut from reserve military forces in both states. These battles of attrition take their tolls the most during the winter months when supplies are in dire need to keep troops warm and fed during unnaturally cold weather due to the post-nuclear strike environment.
 
Each spring and summer sees renewed activity from both sides of the conflict as the warmer weather lends itself to extended military operations. With that being said, extensive resources have been exhausted over the years due to this conflict.
 
Neighboring states to the south (Iowa and Missouri) and to the west of stalwart Minnesota (North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Montana) have sent troops and resources to aid The Midwest Alliance in the upcoming battles due to the limited trading agreements in place prior to all out war breaking out over the boarder conflicts.
 
The staunch defenders of Wisconsin have called in assistance from what is left of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. These states fight under the banner of The Big Lakes Crusaders (BLC for short). The faster response times due to proximity of these states bodes well for Wisconsin, as they can call in additional support troops much quicker than Minnesota.
 
The Southern states are involved in conflicts of their own and have yet to throw in with either side of this Northern East/West war beyond roving mercenary/rogue military groups heading north that will fight on the side of the highest bidder for food, shelter and of course fuel/ammo. These roving mercenary/rogue military groups are becoming much more valuable as combat age populations are not being replaced at the rates they are being eliminated due to radiation sickness and conflict.
 
The question begs to be asked – can either The Midwest Alliance or The Big Lakes Crusaders strike such a decisive victory that they can take over an entire state and hold it? With forces bolstered on each side with fresh troops and renewed supplies, our epic story of survival and post-apocalyptic conflict continues to unfold.
 
Now the time has arrived to pick a side and grab your trusty paintball gun so you can march off to battle with your fellow soldiers. In the trenches, and through the woods you will watch each other’s backs and defend your positions whatever the cost may be. For failure to do so is not an option…Victory awaits the bold and the daring.
TO BATTLE!
 
It all started In the year 2017 - Four years after a massive asteroid collided with earth, destroying the entire eastern seaboard, eliminating our federal government, crippling our economy, and throwing the entire world into the chaos of a nuclear winter. The United States Federal Government was officially disbanded and governing responsibilities where handed down to the state & local level governments. Tensions rose as the remaining states in the former U.S. sealed their borders, organized their own military forces, and shored up their defenses to protect their natural resources and ensure the safety of their citizens.

Oh boy. How do i start.

First thing is. It started raining at about 9:00 AM. during the game briefing. And it  just continued to rain all day long. They said this was the second worst GBG they have ever had. Their was an expected 900+ players. We ended up with 434. And about 150 of them left by Noon or 2:00.

I was fighting for Wisconsin (The Great Lakes Crusaders). We lost. We were out numbers 70:20 at the beginning of the day. This is what happens when you let people who dont pre-register choose their sides. If they would have choosen the side for the non pre-registrees. It would have been a closer game. But oh well. I still had fun. I over heard people saying that the Red team ( Minnesota; Midwest Alliance) wins every year.

The Game was awsome. Rain or Shine. It was a lot funner than i thought it was going to be. I expected to just go out and play paintball like i do everytime. But no. We had a general for each team that would give us orders. He got his orders every 2 hours. So we had 2 hours to complete our objective to get the points for it. It was a lot of fun.

Prizes.. Well i didnt win anything but a barrel squeegee. But i really didnt win it either though. i just caught it when they threw  it into the croud :) I was about 3 numbers away from winning a brand new Tippmann X7, Carbon Fiber HPA tank, a t shirt, like a hat or something.. idk, the other stuff wasnt important. lol :D


I would highly suggest anyone that lives in the Minnesota, Wisconsin area. Or even neighboring states to come to next years Giant Big Game. It was a blast for me this year. And i will definitely be going Next Year. Even if you dont play paintball on a regular basis. If you dont have a gun. I might be able to hook you up with one for the day.

T-Shirt and Barrel Squeegee
