Hi all, so a little about my history..
Started playing in 1999, Marshalled at a woodland Site called First & Only Matlock for a couple of years with 2 guys called Mitch and Gucci running it, alongside Drew (still one of our marshals) and Tom (now Anvil TV) before taking it on as a joint site owner, this then became what is now known as Matlock Combat Games (MCG) Left MCG in 2014 after starting The Gaol and needing to spend all our time running and developing the site into what it has become today.
played a plethora of venues over the years and seen a huge amount of changes within the hobby.
Now haggard, old and grumpy..
Well, I was on the dark side for a long time with Paintball. Played and marshalled locally with my cousin Dave ( now a marshall at the Gaol ) for a number of years around 20 + years ago in Newmarket. Ended up playing a lot of county and home league matches as part of a team…Then ended properly with the Dark Side and was Stormtrooper in the UK Garrison for about 19 years doing lots of charity troops and being the bad guy ! ….Finally tried Airsoft about 10 + ( ? ) years ago and after playing numerous sites in the UK, found the Gaol pretty much when it had opened and have played consistently here since then…I blame the owners sparkling personality that keeps us coming back. Met some awesome people here over the years !
Hi all, quick history of me, played paintball as a kid, grew up discovered beer and women so spent all my money there instead.
in 2013 I finally decided to get back in to playing but found out about airsoft and haven’t looked back since.
I have a passion for gbbrs, gbbps, and hpa silliness. I’ve been known to snipe on occasion too.
outside airsoft I play 40K, mountain bike, ps5, and play with my Alaskan Klee Kai (he loves my wife more than me).
going to be 40 soon and my knees hurt
