Airsoft Indiana has come a very long way over the years. As I look back on past players, teams, games, and even forums it is very clear that we are finally where we need to be. And it should only get better from here.
Solution_Zero- Thank you for being always ready and willing to step up when needed. Your honesty is sometimes harsh but always refreshing. And thanks for being such a good friend and helping me deal with my personal bullshit over the last couple of years. Its always fun running with you.
Harvest- I am SO glad you have stuck around through all the crap that has happened with airsoft in Indiana. Thank you for being such a good friend. And never ceasing to make me laugh till it hurts. I very much enjoy running with you.
Rob- I can not thank you enough for what you have done with these forums. It is constantly being updated and a very bad ass site. But as you know its not just another website to me, its a kind of home. You have also been a very loyal and great friend to me over the years and I very much appreciate it. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
Crimson- I know you have had your share of bullshit to deal with over the past few years but it seems like we went through it together. Thank you for being there for me. And thank you for helping breath some life back into IMPACT when it was starting to fade. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
Vacceo- There is something about having you at games that just makes me feel better. Thank you for being there when I needed it. I consider you family. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
Shwaisey- I am glad you have stuck around all these years. You are turning into the great veteran player I knew you would. Keep up the good work. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
Dragon & Eagle- Not only do I consider you guys to be great friends I also love playing with you guys. Its never a dull moment and always a lot of fun. Thank you.
Peli- Thank you for all of your help with everything from field work, helping host games, or just giving me a ride to an event. If it was not for you I would not have played near as much as I got to this last year. Thanks for being such a good friend. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
50 Inch Neck- Thank you for all of your help with IMPACT it was very much appreciated. As well as the rides to games. Your aggression on the field is very motivating and infectious. Thanks for being such a great friend to me. Always a pleasure to run and gun with you.
Raphiki & BigAltes (No that is not a typo)- Whether others like you or hate you I would still like to thank you. Yes sometimes you do your fair share of shit stirring online but you both have done a great job keeping airsoft moving forward. Raphiki especially with hosting all the NME games and your younger player apprentices.
Rogue- I honestly appreciate your presence here. Your maturity and level headedness is always nice to have around. We are here to play airsoft and you see past the BS are are here for just that.
SORT 712- You young kids are already shaping up to be great veteran players and your presence on the battlefield motivates me to step my game up and to try and keep up with you young ones. Dont stop playing!
NOOBS- Yes I want to thank all of the noobs. I have now been playing airsoft for 14 very long years. I have seen and done just about all there is to do in airsoft. But it is you new and young players that keep me coming back for more. You are our future and I stick around so I can pass what I know to you so that Airsoft Indiana may live on in a positive way.
Everyone else- Honestly there are a TON of people I am forgetting on this list some are not even players from this state. But I would be typing for hours if I had to thank them all personally. Just know that I honestly appreciate each of you and am very glad that you play airsoft. Because you can not play airsoft by yourself. Think about how happy it makes me to see all the events going on and tons of players at those events now a days. Especially since 14 years ago there was literally just a hand full of us. So thank you to newer guys like Poncho and others who are now hosting games for me to play at. We have come a really really long ways and I thank you all for that.
Thank you airsoft for providing me with ways to legally shoot at people with AKs, thank you for allowing me to make some of the best friends anyone could ask for, letting me hone my "skills", keeping me out of trouble, helping me mature, helping me or rather forcing me out of my shyness (yes I used to be very shy believe it or not), thank you for helping me get past personal bullshit, for letting me take out my stress and anger in a healthy way, exercise, thank you for allowing me to just be me, and lastly thank you for the last 14 years of good times and fun! I would not trade it for the world. To me this is far more then just a game I do sometimes for fun or a forum I get on to just pass the time, it really has become a way of life for me and I am thankful for that.
