Jim Lively helped found the Nashville Ridge Runners team which competed in the NSG tournament series from 1983 on. The team was also a regular fixture at other national and international events and is considered to have been one of the original professional traveling paintball teams.
Jim is also well known for expanding the Music City Open tournament (Nashville TN) into the Lively Masters Tournament Series, which was the premiere tournament series in the US for a number of years.
Jim’s patch collection contains some extremely rare and interesting patches (including some that no one else seems to know existed, such as the NSG Survival Gamer Patch from 1983!) and is a valuable archive of paintball patch history.
