Scenario By John Amodea Team Arclight is a new scenario paintball team based out of Fort Walton Beach, Florida. They are comprised of a very diverse group of both veteran and new paintballers and are ready to grow and become a force to be reckoned with on the field! Chad, what is the history of Arclight? When did you form? How did you form? Arclight is a new scenario team that was put together this year. Most of us are members of another paintball team but found we meshed well together and created our own thing. Even though we are a mixed bag ranging from IT professionals to customer service reps we all share the same love of paintball! What is the team’s purpose? What is your mission? Our purpose is to share the experience that is paintball! Our mission is to advance the sport of paintball in every possible way. We strive to keep the sport an honorable one while still keeping it as fun as ever! What type of events do you play in? Mostly scenarios but are working on putting together something for the speedball scene 50 as well. Have you played any scenario and tournament events? We have played mostly scenarios at Waynes-World in Ocala,Florida Bearclaw Paintball in Fayetteville,TN, and CQB at Camp Blanding MOUT Facility in Florida--but a few of our players play both versions of the sport. What is the furthest you’ve traveled for a paintball event, individually or as a team? Our players have played all over from here in Florida to California to Oklahoma all the way to Canada! What is your personal favorite event to play in? Well we usually are at THE GRAND FINALE at Waynes-World but have recently discovered a gem of a field and amazing staff too at Bearclaw Paintball in Tennessee. How long have you been playing? We have a lot of experience playing, some as many as twenty years and others at least a few years. PAINTBAL
