As the sun came up over the field in front of us, I began to realize there were guys lined up in the unmowed strips of the field at 5 yard intervals, stretching out as far as the eye could see. It wasn’t too much longer before the sky was blotted out by waves of grey missiles and shot rained down on our backs. I was hooked.
