We had our first battle of the New Year 2016 on Saturday January 16th. We had a good crowd turn out. We had Orange Patrol and his Dad, Nathan, Jeffrey, Reagan, Nolan, Christian, David B, Mr. Blackburn, Lydia, David S, Daniel, Me, my Dad, Garrett, Ben, and Grace. This was out first battle with our new rules, which worked well. We played three rounds of elimination, one round of prisoner, and one round of free-for-all with teams of two.
We played for the first time with a referee, and that made it so much better. We also timed our rounds to a maximum of fifteen minutes to keep everything moving.
We did not elect a soldier of the month, though several people had notable performances that are listed below:
- Nolan’s stand: Nolan was attacked by Garrett, Orange Patrol, Nathan and Jeffrey, and held out for a few minutes before eventually being shot by Orange Patrol.
2. Daniel: If anyone should have won the soldier of the month, it would have been Colonel Taunt. He shot me, Garrett, Ben and David B, who are all very hard to hit..
All in all, this was one of our best battles ever.
