The Black Sheep Taster event (at the Gunman Airsoft site) was put on by new comers to the scenario paintballing scene, Black Sheep Events. These guys are no newbies to paintball with a clear pedigree in the Magfed Event scene (as the brains and brawn behind OMG). It was a last-minute decision by UE to attend this event with only Rocket, Mr P and Little Dave in attendance and only for the Saturday.

As this was a taster event, this was quite a low key event, with only 30-40 players (on the Saturday) with an approximate 50-50 split of Magfed to Hopper setups being used. Recognising this the organisers arranged to ensure an event split across both teams.

The game area was not huge but perfectly suited for the small number of players, with great levels of thick plant cover and multiple brick buildings that created a brilliant play area. The day consisted of several different game scenarios which were then switched around to ensure no specific advantage was given to either team.

The marshals were always around to main action making sure things were running smoothly, although I had little need for any to call players out during the day.

Overall the day was well run with with great sportsmanship from both sides, which made a thoroughly enjoyable days paintballing. Based on this event I'd certainly attend another run by Black Sheep.
