This Dogs of War jacket sized patch came from the collection of Richard Wilcox. Rick and his wife, Lori Wilcox were involved with the team from the inception.
The Dog of War premiered Glenn Palmer production Hurricanes at the first annual Predator Cup, at Paintball Sam’s in Sacramento. The first annual Predator cup took place on Jan 13th and 14th 1990, and this was covered in a June 1990 Paintcheck article as the first written mention of a tournament I’ve come across where more than one player was using a semi automatic.
Most players were using Glenn Palmers Hurricanes and Forest Cox was likely using an Elite rifle. Both Rick and his wife, Lori competed in this tournament but used their pumps (nelsons?).
Rick and Lori sat down with e and we recorded several videos on their paintball history several weeks back.
