Combat Masters Survival Games Patch

A couple months back Stephen Blair, a longtime player for the southern California Bushmasters brought some of his old memorabilia out to a SC Village game for me to photograph. Find another article on Combat Masters here: https://paintballhistory.com/combat-masters-incorporated-stephen-blair

Combat Masters Survival Games

Here is one of the patches Stephen had stitched onto his Idema vest (which is why the patch is a little uneven in the picture).

This patch was for the field he and 4 of his friends started, Combat Masters Survival Games.

Combat Masters Survival Games was located in Castaic, California (Northern end of the San Fernando Valley, north of Los Angeles) and opened sometime between 85 and 87.  

Stephen partnered with Scott and Steve Carwile (twins), Richard Sakida and Brian Kikkawa and all 5 co-owners played on the fields home team, Tribe.

Although Steve later played on the Bushwackers, at the time,  Tribe and the ‘Wackers never got along. 

Stephen told me, “We used to fight with Ron all the time when we played at Ron’s field, [Field Games].”

Combat Master Survival Games eventually closed since Stephen and his partners couldn’t get the proper paperwork approved to build a road to the field.
