    Tuna you're very welcome

    It was very awesome to see you playing again

    A big thanks to Big E and Pillage
    For their tireless work

    It was nice to see everyone again

    Sitting around the fire and hearing stories are a big part of this event that I missed the .most

    Yes thank you to all that came out from halfway across the US. Great to see all of you again.

    Great to see Tuna out on the field, even giving a RT Pro to one very member's son.

    Trading stories & paint. Pillage pork came in at 80lbs and he left with a group nothing but people complaining about too full stomachs.

    Thanks again for BigEvil for setting this up again.

    Thanks to going_home for proving he can break perfectly working guns.

    Thanks to Pillage for immortalizing me in hot sauce(so hot yet soo tasty).

    Thanks to the Inception Deaigns family for not only setting up shop to buy things, but to join us at the campfire, displaying some vintage and cool guns but also trading paint with us.

    And of course Top Gun, for hosting another great day of paintball.

    p.s.thanks for Billy Mays, Drew Carey & Walter White for showing up & playing

    All good things must come to an end and I am reminded of that saying as I sit here on a especially crappy post Tunaball Monday morning. Thank you to everyone who makes the trek to come out. We pounded each other in to chop meat on Saturday, partied Saturday night, then did it again Sunday with about 20 new faces who came for Vintage gun day. The weather was perfect, which means we are 8-for-8 as far as not getting our fun spoiled by mother nature. God loves Tunaball.

    Since we skipped last year, I was especially looking forward to TB8. I think we had the perfect amount of players, and we had some awesome games. I am already thinking of ways to spice things up for next year. As soon as the dust settles I will get Tunaball 9 on the calendar and make an announcement.

    Some Tunaball related announcements....

    Ken Cole won the M86 frame from Cougar20th
    John Fertitta won the Reflex Emag board
    Bunny won a Tacticool Axe body from Inception Design
    and
    Going_Home won a brand new Tac-1 which was donated by Zupe and AGD...
    and
    Flatliners son "Stitch" ended up with a brand new slightly used RT ULE with carbon fiber barrel that was shooting darts courtesy of Tunaman

    On Saturday we raised $1000+ for the Topgun fundraiser for Lindsey. We should all be very proud.

    I see from the pictures he played more with the gun I gave him. Does he like it? I forgot to tell him about the loader lid popping open. You have to push it once on the bottom where the opening tab is and once on the left side and it should stay closed. It was truly great meeting all you guys.

    The TSA is always butt hurt. Maybe I am on their watch list now for dealing in toxic consumables.

    Now if they ate one of these like Syko and Redic they might a reason for being butt hurt.

    and the bag of Jerky you gave me is about 1/2 gone. We just don't get it like that around here. Thanks so much for that bag!

    I haven't even opened my suitcase yet to see if they fiddled with my stuff. Waiting for it to get nice and ripe before I tear into it.

    Yes sir that was the best shooting gun he used all weekend. He calls it the "TunaMag" and he absolutely loves it. He knows how I like to tinker with Mags so the first thing he told me was "Dad you can't change anything on my gun". I would never change anything on that marker, it was put together by The Man so I know it is going to shoot perfect. No problem on the Jerkey that is the least I could do for your kindness, let me know when your ready for some more and I will send it your way.

    I am so proud to be a part if this group and this experience. This is one of the most important things I do all year long! Last year was painful because I was not able to visit my BEO family. Believe me when I say that all of you are important to me! You pick your friends, not family. This is the family that has accepted me and that is important.

    Thank you to Scott for picking me up, putting up with me and returning me to the airport for final departure! You are like a brother to me man!
    Thank you to Pillage for once again porking me! . . . . . and smiling while you do it!
    Thank you to Redic for assisting Pillage and for taking all the pictures that you did.
    Thank you to paintball4me for taking some pictures when Redic was not and more importantly for making the drive, not to play be to just hang out with us. This shows me how much being invloved with this group means!
    Thank you to the both Carl's and the crew for allowing us to invade TopGun once again!

    . . . . . And thank you all who attended for making this another successful event, one for the books and another great time to remember!

    The only bad thing is that now I have to wait 51 weeks to do it again
    ......You know you want one!!

    Tunaball is the only event good enough, to bring Billy Mays back from the dead, because it is too good to miss.

    Great time and was good to see all the guys from ll7 and reaper ball. Even better meeting some of you for the first time. Hope those who got halos from me enjoy and if need any help let me know. However I think I will be remembered more for the bacon donut and pork sandwich than anything else.

    What can I say but WOW. What an awesome weekend of Balling. I had a GAS.

    It was great to see everyone again.

    Thanks to EVERYONE, so I don't miss any names. Special thanks to Jay for the EMag board. That was to cool.

    Some of you missed it but Big Evil got punked.

    And for his unending commitment to TunaBall and the AutoMag culture was presented an F8 from the Tom Kaye ShoeBox Family.

    TB9 here I come.
