Christmas 2007

Dad played Santa for us. Agot Brix, Raphael and Matthew couldn't believe their eyes when they saw Santa actually coming down from upstairs. Hohoho!

NorthCamp 1215_07

This could be my last game for 2007 and what a run it has been. Met new friends, renewed old acquaintances and proved being a lonewolf isn't at all such a bad idea. My teammates from TMS (Team Mission Specific) is on a hiatus for sometime now and i am still waiting for them to play soon.

The NorthCamp, my home each and every playing date for almost two years now has somehow provided a haven to dealt with my craving for airsoft. Spear heading the management of the site and it's avid followers is the triumvirate leadership of Horace, Giovan and Reggie of Team CCAG/Sat Group. Through their guidance, players grew from a humble 12 to a responsible 50 as an average count every playing date. Player discipline is high on the list something that other playing site can only dream of.

The NC Fellowship Day (Dec15'07) is a fitting event to capped NorthCamp's success for the year 2007. Regular game was held and after that, just on the onset of dusk, bonfire was held complete with food and drink plus plenty of laughter and a lot of cheers. And this was captured through the lens of Dennis Magdamo, a professional photographer, a friend and comrade from the advertising world.

Me, Dennis and Horace

Camp Malauk 1202_07

Scheduled commitments is the main reason why I wasn't able to attend the Saturday gathering at the NorthCamp but that also prompted me to make good of my promise to Merdoc to visit his Camp before the year ends, so Sunday came and off to Camp Malauak I went. Grabe! Ang lawak talaga. Sayang cp camera lang ang dala ko kaya hindi ko nakunan ng litrato yung lugar.

Matthew's Shell Banner

Matthew's Shell chess banner was displayed along with other banners during the Grand Finals of the Shell National Youth Active Chess Championship at the SM MegaMall last Sunday, Oct. 21, 2007. We drop by to watch and I am amaze how young some of the participants are... 4 and 3 years old already highly skilled in chess!

NorthCamp 1020_07

Announcement were made Friday night that Saturday game at NorthCamp is cancelled in light of the Glorietta bombing in Makati that day. It was a surprised that players still flocked the Camp despite of the announcement. Needless to say, players decided (I for one) that no terror act should stop one from continuing to live his life, if you are going to let terror stop you from living your life, you might as well be dead.

O di kaya adik lang kami sa ersop?

With a loud voice, the game marshall asked for five volunteers for the next mission. Without any hesitation i step forward. And immediately four more lads follow. Perhaps all of us (or just me) are thinking this would be one exciting mission that we can not afford to pass.

Right, our thoughts are the same. But wrong, its a different mission.

This time with a soft tone the game marshall gave an order, "ok, you guys will be POWs and you are not supposed to engage in anything except stay put inside the barracks until rescued."

"ma-aksyon pala ha! teka nga." hehehe

I should have uploaded this in here a long time ago, anyway, here it is, Matt and Joco's video during our Zabarte days.

Group Picture : NorthCamp 1006_07

More than 50 players that day! A record high for NorthCamp considering the fact that game invites are never posted for the public on FAS.

NorthCamp ZABARTE 0908_07

The idea of being hunted down and shot at is unsettling, more so frustrating if you find out it's a friendly doing it on you.
Since playing airsoft four years ago, never did I have a game without experiencing friendly fire. It seems that those things are unavoidable since airsoft is always a fast-phased game and armbands does fail sometimes. I had been very cautious at letting my bb's fly without positive ID on my opponent. I don't recall any of my games me hitting a teamate (not that I know of any way). But no matter how careful am I, rules on percentage can catch up on you. I did a blue-on-blue on a teamate. Though appologies were thrown and accepted, i do feel embarrassed, more so disgusted. Now I know what it feels like on the other side of the fence.

I finally caught the iGoogle ghost

Never knew such a "ghost" existed until I came across a blog telling about the iGoogle ghost. Here is the link to that blog:

And the screenshots I took to capture my iGoogle ghost. You can see the date and time when the screenshot was taken.

NorthCamp Zabarte Aug25'07

It's my fifth time and 4th consecutive game here at CCAG's NorthCamp Zabarte. Game here starts early at 10am and I was in for it. I was also able to snap a few photos that morning, and since ako yung kumukuha ng picture, syampre wala ako sa eksena. Haha! My score that day 7 kills including 1 knifekill... unfortunately I was also a victim of a friendly fire that morning. I didn't stay for the afternoon game because of the rain.

The pictures. Enjoy!

The gathering.
