wargame weekend: operation neptune 2022
The code-name for this year's event was "Operation Neptune" and focused on a World War II themed scenario on the coast of Normandy. Our first time running a paintball event using the "Wargame Oklahoma" format, this was one of the most fun and memorable events we've had the pleasure of organizing. The players, staff, weather, and shenanigans came together for an awesome weekend of paintball in the woods.
This page will be where you can find the official staff write-up for Wargame Weekend 2022 as well as media, links, and points breakdowns. While real war isn't a game, we try remind our players that paintball is and win or lose true enjoyment comes from the friends and stories we come home with. Though there are usually point victors, we like to provide the players more than just a points total to go home with.

Complete more shenanigans than the enemy. Engaging in shenanigans and encouraging an atmosphere of camaraderie and sportsmanship will earn your side shenanigan points. Winning the shenanigans point category gives your side a point bonus and could be the thing that breaks a stalemate!
Please note, that this is not an exhaustive list of all shenanigans conducted over the weekend. Because of the nature of shenanigans, the best way to ensure your epic or stupid moment is counted is to catch it on video and share it on Social Media!

OPERATION RANGER RAVE
Unfortunately, the burn ban meant that we couldn't light up the field using road flares. Luckily the Rangers from Blue Company heard there was a rave and came in decked in phallic shaped glow-sticks. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO!
+1 Blue Shenanigans for the Ranger Rave
LET'S GO STREAKING
When Ripper figured out that you could stupid things for Shenanigans points, he went full send 15 minutes into the first exercise.
