A big thank you to the West Point Paintball club for another terrific weekend at the military reservation. The Cadets this year celebrated their 25th year anniversary of providing paintball to the public at West Point, New York. This event broke the attendance record for West Point at over 750 players. Nice job Cadets, again the action was intense, the field was set up with more props then ever before, and the refs were plenty. The Cadets have established a long tradition of quality paintball events, and for many players here in the Northeast the yearly events at West Point have become an annual pilgrimage to attend.
This spring marks the 25th anniversary of one of the longest running fundraising paintball events in the World, The West Point Combat Classic hosted by the United States Military Academyâ€™s Paintball Club. The bi-annual event began in 1987 as an invitational, 15 man tournament to raise money for the Paintball Club at West Point.Â Winners of the first ever fundraiser event 25 years ago was The Master Blasters, a team that still travels and plays in modern version of the event, The Combat Classic.
