21 Dealers and Techs from Scandinavia, Cyprus, and Holland attended the recent dealer tech class in Stockholm, Sweden. The class was hosted by Ash Chaplen, Head of European Technical Support, who explained the principals and troubleshooting solutions of the DM9, PMR ’09, SLG ’09, and the all new Rotor Loader. Everyone had a great time dismantling and rebuilding the guns and loaders to see exactly how they functioned and as a result the following dealers are now fully accredited, Authorized DYE Tech centres.

Thanks to everyone that turned up and made the day an enjoyable one!

Kitsune takes 3rd Division 2 at UK Midland Masters

Monday, January 19th, 2009


After a couple of months of rigorous training mostly involving mince pies and mulled wine, Kitsune assembled at the Midland Masters; rusty, cold and at less than their usual stellar level of fitness. With players a bit under their absolute peak it’s very important to have the right kit and paint, and thanks to DYE’s support they were using their new Rotor loaders and Proto paint.  With the temperature hovering in the low single digits and a bitter wind even on a sunny day, they expected a few issues from the kit but by the end of the day their players still had clean barrels. The new loaders proved very popular with the team and gave no issues all day, the paint flew very well and was easy to handle despite the perishing conditions and the end result for Kitsune was third place in Div 2 of the UK Midland Masters. A very good first outing for 2009. Thanks to the whole team for their support and whatever the coming year may bring we hope it brings a few more trophies home for the team.
