Tippinators Purchase and Will Run ATWL

The two time ATWL champion Tippinators paintball team have purchased the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League (ATWL). The Tippinators, who have refereed the ATWL the past two seasons, were excited and acted quickly when the opportunity to purchase the league presented itself.

Bruce Johnston, Tippinators Captain, said "Taking over the league [ATWL] is the next logical step for us, since we have been heavily involved in the league and produced a number of scenario games in the last few years." Johnston continued "This move feels right, Tippinators and ATWL is a good fit."

ATWL Event III at Mersey Road Paintball

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.

Tippmann Cahllenge Mirabel 2010

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.

Sponsorship - The Holy Grail of Paintball

Ask not what your sponsor can do for you...

What is something that every paintball team wants and few have? Sponsors. Sponsorship is the Holy Grail of paintball. If you have sponsors you are considered to be in another class among paintball teams.

Anybody can find a sponsor for his or her paintball team. The one thing you have to keep in mind is that the potential sponsor only cares about one thing, selling more products. Sponsors need to be convinced that investing in your team makes good business sense. Ideally, the company’s name will be “marketed” to a segment of potential customers in a positive manner, which will result in more exposure and sales. Welcome to the cold, harsh, economically-driven “real” world. It’s all about the bottom line, and most sponsors need to see dollar signs
