ATWL Event 3

The Mersey Road Predators woodsball team were on the attack against the best woodsball teams in the region at event three of the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL), at Mersey Road Paintball in Hubbards, Nova Scotia on August 28th, 2010.

The Predators came into the day confident that they would be able to catch the league leading, defending champion Mersey Road Mercenaries and Team Anthraxx.

"There are some great teams in the league this year" said Predator player and field owner Jim Langlois "We will need to play our best paintball of the year if we want a chance to take the title."

The Predators played well all day but were unable to close the gap on the leading teams. Both the Mercenaries and Anthraxx maintained their slim lead in the standing, despite a strong push from the young Iron Legion squad.

The teams are so close in the standings that any team has the possibility to win. The final event will be needed to decide the 2010 Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League Champion.

Fire Island Paintball in Nova Scotia, is hosting event four in early October. The field will live up to it’s name, as the hottest woodsball action of the season will be played at the ATWL final.

Tippinators at the Tippmann Challenge

The eastern Canadian stop of the Tippmann Challenge was held on August 14, 2010 at Mirabel Paintball, just north of Montreal Quebec.

Six Tippinators made the 28 hour round trip drive from Halifax, to join over 1200 other players in one of the best organized paintball events in the country. To facilitate 1200 players, Mirabel joined all of their individual fields together to one large field. This made a multifaceted field which required repeatedly changing playing styles in order to be successful.

Though the game was played in the heart of Quebec, not all players at the game were French Canadaian. The Tipps were happy to play along side Glen Hogan, Sean Thompson and a crew from Paintball Paradise in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Paradise guys, and gal, played a similar fire and move, highly aggressive style as the Tipps. Although the teams camefrom opposite sides of the country, they played like old friends.

During the lunch break Mike Silva of PBL introduced the team to a young player named Alex. Alex is a big fan of the Tippinators and wanted to get a photo with the team. The guys crowded around for a photo as Justin Landry took the team barrel graffiti off his marker and presented it to Alex. To show his appreciation Alex immediately put the graffiti on his marker.

Alex was very excited when he was asked to play with the team for the rest of the day. Alex is already an aggressive and smart paintball player. Right now he isn’t much taller than his marker, but look out for him in the future. If he keeps playing Alex will be a monster on the field that very few players would be able to match. Alex is a great kid who can play with the Tippinators any time.

This is second time the Tippinators have played the Tippmann Challenge at Mirabel, it won’t be the last. The team would like to thank Nic Meyer from Tippmann, Robert Lee, Mike Silva, Louie D'Alesio and Ian Grant from PBL Action Sports for your hospitality and making the Tippinators feel like they were playing their home field.
