Shaun Langille, owner of the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL), asked Two time Atlantic Woodsball League Champion, Tippinators to officiate event two of the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL) season "In the past we had the teams not playing act as refs." Langille said, "to prevent any conflict of interest and to maintain a professional standard I asked the Tippinators to ref for the remainder of the season."

The Tippinators decided not to defend their woodsball championship title this year, opting instead to concentrate on scenario paintball and big games rather than competitive woodsball.

Tippinator Captain Bruce Johnston is pleased with how things worked out. "We decided to spend more time playing with new woodsballers and promoting the sport at a grass roots level and pass on the ATWL in 2009," said Johnston. "Because of that decision the team was available to give Shaun [Langille league owner] a hand and continue our involvement with the ATWL. It’s win / win."

The Tippinators were on hand in force at Mersey Road Paintball on September 12 to enforce the ATWL rules, and make sure all players had a day of fun, competitive, and safe paintball.

Austin Flaherty was impressed with the conduct players at event two, "The ATWL teams made it easy to referee, all the players were calm and collected, played a fair game." Flaherty continued, "Watching the games go on really made me want to play. It was great competition out there all day long."

The players were happy to have an unbiased reffing staff on hand for the day. Both the players and league management agree the officiating was top notch and have invited the Tippinators back to ref event three.

"It's great to be involved with the league and I am looking forward to watching, and reffing, more great woodsball action at ATWL event three." Johnston concluded
