German victory in 2018!!! 4 in a row!

June 24, 2018
The German forces won a hard-fought 500 point victory at Oklahoma D-day 2018. This was my 19th year to attend and it was one of the most memorable of all! The HGP team put on the BEST minis ever at D-day!!! Tanks were allowed to park like in the past; there were scorable objectives for each mini & there was a history lesson/briefing before each game! All the minis were based on actual battles that occured during WW II & were a lot of fun.
The Buzzard ruled the roost in Tuesday's mini - we rolled Coleville & the German forces prevailed in the game. The Buzzard had a tough rest of the week - battery died; starter issues; she over-heated during the tank-on-tank game & was only able to stay in the battle for 20 minutes, but Brian had 13 kills in that 20 minutes. The Buzzard made about 2 hours in the main game Saturday but then she began having carburetor issues & I had to sadly park her in DZ 4. I took over command of Soulcrusher & the rest of the crew ground-pounded to help in the final victory. Buzzard will be back stronger than ever next year.

Pandemonium was awesome!!

April 23, 2018
My son Brian; his fiance Brittany Andrews; Ed Poe & I left for Pandemonium as soon as the last bell rang at school on Friday, April 6th. After a 5 1/2 hour drive we arrived at the Dday Adventure Park in Wyandotte, Oklahoma - home to the world's largest paintball event: Oklahoma D-day! It was Ed's first trip to the park. We set up Brian & Ed's tents as it started sleeting & the wind began to pick up. By the time their tents were up - the wind was going at a steady 20 mph with gusts up to 30 an...

Battle for Iwo Jima

November 4, 2017
The Battle for Iwo Jima scenario held at Memphis Paintball Park in Lakeland, Tennessee was a BLAST! This was my first trip to this park & I HIGHLY recommend it! Brian & I ground-pounded for the Japanese forces. The Japanese forces ruled the day early, but  ran out of paint & air around 12:45 allowing the Marine forces to virtually take over the entire field. We spent the rest of the day fighting out of the dz trying to retake parts of the field. I had a BLAST all day. Team Das Buzzard ran sev...
