  1. #1 Clock's Retirement 
    So, this may or may not come as a shock to some or most. I'm not retiring from the sport so much as I am the team.

    No... This isn't me moving to Opfor and for the record they don't want me (favorite target on the field I guess? Who'da thunk?).

    For a while now; the better part of last season and this current one I've been dwelling on the thought that our team has been slowly drifting apart for various reasons, to each his own. And there's absolutely nothing wrong with any aspect of that. We have hutch who works out a lot on the ocean a lot.

    Rabbit and Chuck both adulting it.

    Greg is gone for a most of the season due to his employment.

    Both Mule and Tom (Kahuna) will soon be leaving to start the next chapter of their lives. (Mule maybe not so much but Kahuna will be)

    Omar practically runs the field (thank the Lord for him; I don't think anyone would know what the field would be today with out him).

    I apologize if I didn't name you; but my point is, life has hit us all. There's absolutely nothing wrong with any of these reasons. And I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for taking me under your wings from that Ghost Team (*CUE UGH!*) so many years ago. You all have molded me into the player that I am today and there's nothing changing that. Rabbit and Hutch are so greatly appreciated for loaning me equipment over the years. To which I'll still take care of!

    If I have anyone's equipment and they'd like it back just let me know. I do have a bundle of team patches still I'd like for someone to take custody of however! I just want to cordially part ways because I feel like I'm growing to be more of a free spirit as of late; I don't want anyone to think otherwise. None of you have influenced this decision. It's just time for me to be on my own and not have a name attached. I'll still be out on the fields pretty much most weekends, except for my wedding of course

    You all are truly awesome and I just want you guys to know that this wasn't a sudden decision, it's been looming over my head for quite some time now. If you have any questions or I don't know, comments. Feel free to post; but other than that I just wanted to tender my retirement.

    Sincerely,
    Ian Clockedile.

    Hey Clock, this came as a shock, and I'm feeling a bit sad right now. It's probably going to be difficult for us to think of you as a non-wolf because you've been with the team for so long. Nevertheless, your explanation is understandable and respectable. Even though we sometimes poke a little fun at you, I know that we all think very highly of you as an airsofter an as an all-around great guy! Your friendship and the positive contributions that you make to the field/community are treasured so much that your team status is infinitesimal in comparison. Thank you for letting us know through your candid and thoughtful words. I'll update the Wolfpack roster and site listings accordingly.

    What I wanted to say, but didn't have the words for. Just make sure you keep coming out to the field so I have someone to learn from :^)
