Big Game Fever hits the UK with the North vs South

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

It was that time of year again in the UK, when every self respecting scenario ‘baller, along with big game veterans and newbies alike come together for the North Vs South Big game, run by Warped Paintball.
Over 1400 people participated in the 3 day paintball festival, organised on an active Army training base still covered with bunkers, buildings and trenches that were all available for the game.
DYE Europe were really pleased to be in attendance, providing full technical support and displaying a range of our our latest and greatest products including the slick and extremely limited edition London Nexus DM9 and the fully Camo shelled Rotor Loader.
Friday and Saturday consisted of a huge trade show and exhibition filled with competitions and fun activities for everyone. The atmosphere was fantastic! The friendliness of the scenario community was overwhelming, especially as this was the first Big Game that DYE Europe had attended in the UK . Sunday’s game was epic. Never have I felt the need to explain a day of paintball with so many words! Mental, manic, frenzied, sneaky, strategically challenging, fast paced, hectic and straight up fun come to mind when describing the game play.
It was a long fought day with the South just coming out on top on body count after both sides had achieved all of their objectives!
Thanks to everybody who came and said hi and made us feel welcome over the course of the weekend, especially the whole Warped crew who put on an incredibly organised and well thought out event. We’ll definitely be back next year!

Spent Paintball hosts Mike & Rocky Clinic

Sunday, May 10th, 2009


Right after PSP Mid-Atlantic Open, Mike Paxson and Rocky Cagnoni made their way to West Palm Beach, Florida, for a clinic from May 9th to the 10th. Even in the heat of Florida, dedicated players still showed up to learn and have fun.

Owner, Mike Ivancevic, has owned his own paintball store for almost 6 years. He added the field to the business back in February of 2008. Spent Paintball is located on Congress Avenue, next to the Trump International Golf Course. Ivancevic started his paintball business during his Chicago Aftershock, but even before Spent Paintball was born, he was selling paintball t-shirts during his time with pro team Strange.

On the 5-acre premises of Spent Paintball, Ivancevic has one of the best turfed tournament field equipped with X-Ball bunkers. Located next door to that is a speedball field, a rec player favorite. A tented staging area is only steps away from the field, which is a must when playing in the Florida sun.

Mike and Rocky arrived early in the morning to start playing by 930AM and it was non-stop until 3PM arrived. Attendees not only received professional instruction from two of paintball’s best, but Rocky also hosted a gun -tech class. Each participant also had a chance to win Pinokio hoppers, Kohn Sports Laser Engraving, and DYE/Proto and Ironmen merchandise. The grand prize drawing was a Proto UL SLG.

There’s one more day to go in the clinic, and in tomorrow’s report, we’ll give you some tips from the clinic and give you some things to be aware of when playing paintball in the summer heat. If you’re interested in attending the final day of the clinic, you still have a chance. Just show up to Spent Paintball in West Palm Beach, Florida, by 8AM to start playing by 9AM. It’s just $90 to participate and includes a case of paint. If you can’t make it this time, check out the future clinics and see if those work within your schedule. – Spent Paintball’s Website – For details of future clinics

Enjoy the images provided by Valerie Rothwell Photography below and come back later tonight for the clinic wrap-up report.
