Plague Tower

Plague Tower

Plague got a wild hair and built this 20 ft tower with some added help from the rest of Second squad. It's new so the position has not been added to the Official Map. It is about 150 yards north by north east from the Fort. Games between the Tower and the Fort make possible a whole new range of scenarios. The above shot is before the paint job.

Here it is with the camo paint.  Too bad a lot of players never saw the finished product.  Some people were coming on the field when it was closed.   We had some vandalism,  then finally some real jerks shot up the PG&E trucks with paintballs when we weren't there.  The owner cancelled the contract on the land; and the Marauders' last game was played on June 6, 1999.

(It just so happens June 6 is the anniversity of the WWII invasion of Europe. D-Day)


This is a shot from the uphill side. note the skyline camo scheme

Plague (on the left)  built the tower, Boxcar, and BigDog of 2nd Squad lent a hand in the final phase.  Predator and PacMan of 1st Squad (not shown) gave it the paint job.
