According to Gilbert (Gilly) Martinez, picture bottom row on the left in this photo:

“…This was Fields of Honor ’94 Fun Series.
They had like 5 events in the series that year where you had to use different types of markers.
Semi only
Pump only
50/50
Etc..
The overall winner got Autocockers which we won.
Another cool thing is at each event the winners got custom patches for First Place. I earned 4.”

Gilly went on to write, “It was right after this that I resurrected the Bushmasters.”
