Remembering the old days...(pics only please)

Do you remember your first AEG? How about the first time you suited up for a that "huge event at springfield" that "everyone" was going to? Or do you just recall the "good days" of backyard 'softing with friends.

No matter what it is it HAS to be from when you first started the hobby. Veterans and new players alike are welcome here, but I ask that we only POST PHOTOS. We can create a second thread for discussion later if needed - but for now I only want to see a photo or two of your oldest memories and a short description of where, when, and what you were doing.

Here's a look at where I started back in 2003. Notice the Zip tie holding the plastic TM M4 body together.

This was back in early 2004 at an ASKY game. Too bad they are not around anymore, they put on some great games.

Don't know why I had a backwards American Flag lol, but that was my first Red Dragon event, Op: Tangled Web when Scorpion took a nose dive off the ravine and became good friends with the ground. Anyway, back in what...2005

New Years Day 2004. Had been playing backyard springer games for a few years, this is the oldest pic at my immediate disposal. Just purchased my prized TM M4A1 a few months earlier. Attended my first event, Michigan Airsoft OP: First Strike a few months later.

This is the earliest picture I could find, from Northern Wind 3, which was about four months into my airsoft career.

August 2001. The 2nd official airsoft event in Ohio. This event was played is Chesapeake while the first event was held in Cleveland by Dumborat.

For those wondering, Jimmypop is top row, 2nd from left. the man on the far right (still top row) is Bogeyman. Punisher was playing his first event ever with some woodland bdu and an M4. I was using Tigerstripe already...with a FAMAS.

Started prior to then (about a year) but this is the oldest picture I have of myself. November 2001, in the snowy woods of Pennsylvania with a small group of local players.

Here is a Pic of yours truly blastin away with my brand new KSC Full Metal Glock 18c a Airsoft Toys Custom build from years and years ago at one of the Fran bar games (way before it was FUBAR)

I would guess this pic is circa 2000-2001

Sidd, your picture is more like 2001-2002. As we met for the first time in June 2000 (at the cleveland game) and Fran bar was not available for a good year after that.

Blade, man thats an old pic!
The other two guys haven't played in years,Keeney and Ike. I'm pretty sure that was supposed to be my first game but I got beat up by a bottle of Jager the night before.lol

Sidd, I used to attend alot of the early Fran Bar games and by chance are you the guy that used to wear ninja booties and I always called you John Woo because of the pistols?

I belive this is the only "old" photo that I have left, it's from early 2001 and it was took at the old ballfields in Huntington WV. I belive that I have Bossman's old M-60 in the photo.

Ultra,
Have you ever heard back from Vice, Deviant, Jason and Sabre? I have been trying to find Sabre for years as I found one of his pistols in my stuff....

This was my OWN CO slitting my throat at Still Water 2 in Indiana. Remember guys, I am still pretty new to airsoft so think this is a lil over a year old. And I think this is the earliest picture I can find at the moment.

Blade, I think your pic is older. AO was created in March of 01, and that event predates me and AO. I started playing at the end of 00/beginning of 01.

Well, I moved here 01/03/00 and played with Dumborat in June so I guess we played much more that year than I thought (we were driving down to chesapeake every 2 weeks or so).

one thing though, when we started AO, did we stop going to Chesapeake? I know we played at Goshen but can't remember if we stopped going down. Lebanon follow up later that year or perhaps in 02, not sure about this right now. I know I found Mom/Dax picture last week

Unfortunately the images are not there, but you can get an idea of the events and dates.

P.S. This is a place holder for a picture I just can't seem to locate it.

There was quite a few games played in Chesapeake after AO went up. Keeney was our contact for that field and he quit in mid 2002. I can't remember if Stormblade ever made it to a game there but the Strikers (Blade,Punisher,Distorted Axis, and Pliskin) attended the last one held there.

I do belive that Wallace and Jimmy Pop made the last game too.
