Tippinators Raise Money for Feed Nova Scotia

Tippinators Help Less Fortunate at CBC Food Drive for Feed Nova Scotia

The Tippinators have attended many paintball events over the past two years. At each event the team does their best to make a positive contribution to the paintball community, leading by example, with integrity and fair play.

This holiday season the Tippinators decided to take the team ethos one step further and contribute to the community. The team purchased a trunk load of food, using money gather from the team members, topped off with non perishable food items from home all to support the Halifax area food banks through Feed Nova Scotia.

Warriors in the Woods VIII: Viking Battle of Gambit

The Vikings are coming, the Vikings are coming.

In a change from the previous seven Warriors in the Woods games, event organizer Eric Fisher of Banshee Paintball, decided to move away from the traditional World War II themed scenario game and move toward a Viking game?!?!

Warriors in the Woods VIII: Viking Battle of Gambit was played at Mersey Road Paintball, in East River, Nova Scotia on October 5th, 2008. The theme this time around was Vikings versus the Celts. Many of the 300 plus players who attended the game unaware of the theme change, where forced to get rid of their distinctive World War II German style helmets and A5's moded to look like Thompsons, in favor of horned helmets and battle axes.

Halifax City Open Sets New Standard

Tippinators and Shock Run Largest One Day Speedball Event in the Maritimes

Message from Event Organizer Kevin 'Big Can' Curry

I was going to do this last night but I decided to sleep on it so as not to forget anyone. I have to be honest and most of the guys can attest to this, I had a feeling that something was wrong after the event (besides the fact that Kyle ripped down half the poles), It was a surreal feeling. I kept thinking we had done something wrong, that somehow we had overlooked something. Never have I been to an event and things ran as smooth as they did yesterday especially when consider this was the largest one day, one field event in Altantic Canada.

An Old Timer Speaks

About.com Paintball
An Old Timer Speaks By David Muhlestein, About.com

I recently wondered where the old timers have gone. Some responded. With permission, here is what Bruce 'Charon' Johnston wrote:

I started the game back in the late 80's just after high school. The game was in its infancy back then, and 12 gram, CO2, Splatmasters was the marker of choice. As I recall paintballs were outrageously priced compared to today, somewhere in the area of $.20 - $.25 per ball. Since paintball was a fringe extreme sport at the time, very few people played the game. We were lucky if we had 10 guys out on any given day.

How to Creat a Star Defense

Action Pursuit Games Paintball
originally published in the August 2008 issue of Action Pursuit Games
You and your team are slowly moving toward the enemy base in single file, keeping five yards between each player. You know the other side is close. Your adrenaline is pumping, your eyes peeled, your mouth is dry, and you can feel your heartbeat in your ears.

Just ahead behind a stack of logs you see a quick flash of light as the sun reflects off a mask lens. You know the other side isn't just close - they are really close!

Tippinators Start AWL Season 4-0

From a scenario game, to league xball and back to woodsball again. Such is the life of the hybrid paintballers. After a successful weekend of xball, the Tippinators moved back to their roots to play the first event in the Atlantic Woodsball League (AWL).

The AWL, based on Special Ops Paintball's Scenario Paintball Players League (SPPL), expanded to six teams in 2008. July 19th, 2008, marked the kick off of the sophomore season of the AWL, at Mersey Road Paintball in East River Nova Scotia.
Event 1 was set up as a multiple capture point game of 30 minutes in duration. Three flag stations set as capture points across the field. The goal is simple, reach the flag station, raise your flag, and keep the other side from changing the flag. The winning team had the longest total duration of raised flags.

The AWL was founded by Shaun Langille, captain of the Milsim Maniacs. Loosely based on the highly successful Special Ops Scenario Paintball Players League (SPPL), the league follows the SPPL format.
