This is an un cut video, meaning that it is pretty much the raw footage straight off the camera, with only seconds here and there cut out.  I know some of you may appreciate seeing moments that shape the games you play that aren’t always the most action packed.

Filmed on my iPhone 6s.  Stabilized while I shot by the “Dragon Fly” handheld stabilizer by Digital Juice, I recommend it highly, its a very simple and easy to use piece of equipment.

Here is a shortened version of the AAR (After Action Report) from from BTA’s command: “Trooper”. For the full story visit: http://blackthornairsoft.squarespace.com/aar-after-action-report/post/2547610

The day started a bit cool and quickly warmed up to a sunny warm fall day! Some traffic and car problems hampered the meet-up convoy a bit, but everyone seemed to make it close to on time.

BTA welcomed to our 8th Annual BTA Halloween Zombie-Game… OPERATION: “DOOM” of 2015 at Silver City a.k.a. “The Ruins”

After the briefing and before the first game, We held a raffle… giving away prizes that could be used “in-game”. Wonderful prizes were provided by…
• BTA sponsor Tactical Airsoft Supply (TAS) in SLC & Layton, Utah!
• BTA supporter ILikeAirsoft.com!
• BTA Command & Team members!
• and… BTA fund raising! (water, dead-rag, and food sales)

*********************************************

INTRODUCTION:
BTA zombie games are not scripted. Each wave has a loose scenario with objectives you the players must follow. How you accomplish them is up to your skills and tactics. Interaction, dialog, and allegiances between the different living “teams” is left up to you. Your success or failure dictates how you are rewarded or punished in the following rounds. It could mean the difference between having numbers, ammo, supplies, even how many opponents you will face… or what you lose! BTA zombies are not merely targets… do not expect them to act as such. They are unarmed, walking, “players” with only one goal… wiping out you “living” players!

WAVE ONE = DEFEND CAMP & SUPPLY RUN:
The survivors left one team to keep it’s camp secure from roaming Zombies, while a “supply run” squad was sent out to scrounge surrounding locations.

The supply run squad gathered all of the supplies before discovering a Scientist holding up in a nearby ruined building. They approached cautiously, and were fired on by BCO Operatives dressed in all black!

The BCO operatives viciously left shot Survivors to be eaten or turned by a few of their pet zombies guarding their perimeter.

However, as it turned out… the Scientist was a BCO captive and managed to escape with sensitive material. He then linked up with the lone remaining Survivor, and they made their way back to the Survivor camp.

Unfortunately, the camp was under heavy attack from Zombies and in the confusion the Scientist was shot by the BCO Operatives who pursued them and discovered the location of the camp!

WAVE TWO – TRANSPORT:
Before the Scientist was killed he left the survivors with intel about a location that the Survivors could bring the sensitive materials to… where they could possibly use it to stop the virus or at least strike a heavy blow to the nefarious BCO plot! Unfortunately, BCO reinforcements arrived making this task difficult. Ultimately, the Survivors broke free of BCO’s grip… however they were overtaken again before they could reach their objective.

WAVE THREE – DEFEND FROM ASSAULT:
For the first time the Survivors have attracted an all out assault from BCO Operatives, who attacked the Survivor camp in force pursuing them into the surrounding forest. The Survivors fought well until they were forced into a group of zombies and BCO wiped them out.

While BCO normally takes samples of the dead and undead then departs… this time they wiped out all remaining survivors and Zombies?!

What is BCO up to now…? Come out to the fourth annual OPERATION: “DEAD OF NIGHT- 2016” next Summer to find out!!!

*********************************************

After the games we held a COSTUME CONTEST! Giving out fun patches to Best Zombie, Best Slayer, and best Civilian. Followed by another raffle of more zombie/survival themed Fun Prizes!

Watch the BTA web site AWARDS page for details on the prizes and winners… coming soon!

Thanks to my fellow command team, family and team members for arriving early to help set up!

More thanks to the BTA team members who stayed late to help in the field clean-up!

Special thanks to ALL those who donated towards the prizes!

Last… but never least, very… very special thanks to everyone who came out and played with a great attitude and great imagination/costumes for always making this another great BTA event! Hope to see you all again soon!

Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS Accepted by Shades

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Shades was issued a challenge of dumping ice water on his head. He did it, Green filmed it. There was actually more ice than Green had in his bucket but it just didn’t seem to show up on camera.

He also issued a few challenges to some inter-webs folks on the Tubes. I wonder if they will even hear the plea of our beloved Shadesies.

I do know that this challenge was originally issued by a guy on facebook that has ALS to dump ice water over your head. It has turned into quite a phenomenon, I know that the challenges keep getting skewed by many people making videos so Im not sure that were even doing it right. Sometimes we just do as were told, we just gotta show up to a challenge, at least now and then.

Airsoft Utah is a channel all about the sport of Airsoft.

Airsoft is a game of honor, team building and dressing the part for a team or as an individual. To have fun, to look cool and improve your skills. It is competitive and in Utah, normally objective based. Airsoft in Utah is unmatched.  Having nearly every climate in the world here in one state makes airsoft different each and every game!

Most of the videos you will find here on AirsoftUtah YouTube are “Featured Player” or, load out videos, where we focus on a single player and their gear. From head to toe they explain it and how they use it, how they like it and how they play their game.  Other lineups include “Find the Sniper” where an Airsoft sniper; call sign “K-factor” hides and as the viewer you try to find him in each natural setting before he takes his shot.

Airsoft games, Tactical gear giveaways, reviews and more are found here on Airsoft Utah’s YouTube channel, Please Subscribe!

Comic Con 2013 – I Like Airsoft.com – Highlights

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

Comic Con 2013 in Salt Lake City Utah was a blast! it was a first for our state and we knew there would be some interest but didn’t know it would explode with as much enthusiasm for cosplay and geekdome that it did. I Like Airsoft was along for the ride. Shades escorts us through the exhibit hall in this video to find some interesting characters with great results! From “Cosplayers” to tactical operators, oh yeah and some pretty good lookin’ chicks are found along the way.

Also, Our new friends at “Operation Underground Railroad” gave us some information about their new organization and also invite us to join in their fight against child sex slavery. More information on their organization can be found at their websites:
http://www.360-defense.com
http://operationundergroundrailroad.org

In addition there may be a quickie featured player near the end of the video 😉 so stay tuned for that one. ( This video isn’t fully “Airsoft” I know, but we love to report on cool stuff such as this, and this happens to be something we enjoy. We challenge those who don’t know much about Airsoft but are competitive and enjoy learning new tactics to investigate this awesome, growing and somewhat underground sport)

Airsoft Game – Operation: “Warlord”

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

Well guys, finally I have finished another airsoft game video.  This Holiday season has been so busy with festivities and other projects that I haven’t been able to focus on other such fun things as airsoft.  But, last night I was determined to finish and stayed up till about 5am getting this thing popped out.  Special thanks to Matt Erickson aka “M” for supplying some GoPro footage, it was fun to watch since I don’t incorporate much of my own go pro footage normally. Operation Warlord took place on Oct 8th, 2011 in a northern desert of Utah.  Located on the ruins of an old industrial complex, this AO is one of the most fun epic battle fields around.  However most of the footage captured on camera were in fields adjacent to the remains.  Hope you guys enjoy this video, please rate, comment and subscribe!
