First Paintball Field Found
For Immediate Release
First Paintball Game Field Location Discovered
Steve Davidson, Editor of www.68Caliber.com, has been conducting historical research for more than 18 months to determine the location of the world's first paintball game, conducted in June of 1981, was held.
"I am pleased to be able to announce that I have discovered the location of the first paintball game".
The playing site is located in Henniker, NH.
"I'd like to thank Bob Gurnsey, Lionel Atwill, the Henniker Historical Society, Omere, John Amodea and many others for their assistance during this investigation", said Steve.
Steve is preparing a series of articles that are being published on www.68Caliber.com that detail the investigation and will serve as an entre to the paintball community in an on-going effort to have an historical marker placed at the location.
"I'd like the state to get the credit for being one of only three states in which a major international sport was founded (baseball - Ohio and basketball - Massachusetts being the other two), and I'd like to see Bob Gurnsey, Charles Gaines, Hayes Noel and the other nine players immortalized in a lasting manner for their contributions in creating our wonderful sport."
Preliminary efforts have begun in filing an application for the roadside historical marker and full details of that effort will be disclosed as they become available. For the time being the exact location of the playing site will not be revealed as it is located on private property and no one wants anything to occur that might jeopardize the effort to have the location marked.
