Paintball Comes Back To Blanding

In the mid 1990s, the US Government had something special out there for scenario paintballers in the southeastern United States.  Camp Blanding, located in north central Florida is a US Army base featuring a MOUT training facility.

MOUT is an acronym for Military On Urban Terrain.  MOUT sites have a look that is familiar to anyone who has watched Military training and technology documentaries on the discovery channel.  Multistory buildings of cinderblock line paved streets with sidewalks to allow military units to train for door to door urban combat.

In the mid 1990s, a number of paintball scenario games were held at the Blanding MOUT site.  Unfortunately, that was left to the past, and the site has not been used for paintball in some time.

"When will there be another blanding game?" has been a common question in Rec Talk.  In April 2001, Mackz Xtreme Sportz completed negotiations with the Army to allow them to produce one of their scenario games at the site.  The first new game at the site will be held July 6-8, 2001.
