Marauders got their start as a five man team back in 1991


This site was in Fresno County just below Friant Dam

We played the first games there and the tradition of great paintball is carried out to this very day.
In 1969 a large storm caused a flood that knocked out this old bridge. Twenty-two years later the Marauders converted the area into a super paintball training ground.

The Original Marauders

The Original Marauder team [plus one] in 1992. From left to right along the top is Snake, Gunner, Stealth, Swampthing and founding member Predator in the front. The ever-present "kid" was along for the ride.

Sometimes we startled hikers when they came by, but not that many even saw us. The temp. was 107 degrees when this photo was taken.

In the spring of 1993 Predator and Swampthing were traning Pat and Brian; two young members of the O'Neill clan of the Great Central Valley.
