The Rampage Raiders are a team of airsoft players / volunteers that have been hosting outdoor public skirmish games at Rampage Paintball & Airsoft since 2017. The main goal of the Rampage Raiders, was to not be just another team of guys that played airsoft, but rather an umbrella that the entire community is welcome under. Driven by our own passion for the sport, and desire to see it grow we began hosting organized airsoft pick-up style games as well as larger scale events once a month for airsoft players in Calgary & surrounding area. We hand out free patches to all players that come out to our field to show our appreciation, and give them a way to find other players that also play at our field if they venture out to different events. There is a colour tier system that rewards loyalty to our field, and the players earn their way up the ladder the more they play at Rampage. Once a month we host a larger scale event, and with help from our sponsors 007 Airsoft & Rampage Paintball & Airsoft, we do free giveaways, prizes, and raffles for all players present at the event to win something cool. In more recent years we have started to do charity games and donate proceeds from that event to a charity that has been preselected. In our first ever attempt at this, the community helped us raise over $3,000 for The Heart & Stroke Foundation. We’re a bunch of normal guys that wanted to play a lot of airsoft, and possibly make some friends along the way. We wanted to give players a consistent, reliable, safe, and organized environment to do the same, and through the communities support we now have the largest number of regular players in Alberta.
Raven Guard Airsoft was originally founded 11 years ago by a couple friends all in the security industry. We operated out of Capture the Flag for about 5 years before ultimately disbanding due to family commitments, members moving away etc. Fast forward 2 years, we decided to restart with a new group of guys at the end of 2017/beginning of 2018. We started with 10 of us, always trying to be the guys people enjoy playing with and being very accepting of new players and families. This approach has allowed us to grow to now 66 active members which includes fathers, sons, grandfathers, mothers, and daughters. Our members range from 11 years old up to 60 years old. We focus on being the team anyone can join and feel welcomed and accepted which is why we also have started another branch of Raven Guard called Raven Heart. This is our all girls team that focuses on having a safe place for ladies to come and try out the sport we love so much. We host regular games out at Capture The Flag in Cochrane and are always happy to play with anyone who comes out and willing to help get people started in Airsoft.
