Dynamix win the GPPL series!!

Monday, November 21st, 2011

Team Dynamix were crowned the South African GPPL champions over the weekend at the Africa Cup event hosted by Blades and Triggers field in Johannesburg. Craig Marley from Dynamix gave a rundown of their season:

Dynamix started the year a bit rocky with no marker sponsorship at the first GPPL (Gauteng Professional Paintball League) event. We ended the first event in 3rd place. Dye was present at the event, they saw potential in Dynamix and decided to bring us on board as one of their teams.

Now with Dye and Blades & Triggers behind Dynamix, the team went from strength to strength. Dynamix won the 2nd GPPL event with our new Dye NT11′s. The 3rd GPPL event we battled our way to 2nd place and won the 4th GPPL event.

In the final GPPL event and African Cup held at our home field – Blades & Triggers – we needed to win the event to clench the series and the African Cup. In the finals we came up against our fellow Dye team – Reapers. Beating them 4-1, Dynamix won the African cup and The GPPL Series.

Thank you to Dye, Blades & Triggers, Ole Kroger (Photo Monkey – for the great photos) and all our supporters for everything that you have done for us

Ironmen at World Cup Asia in Langkawi, Malaysia

Friday, November 18th, 2011

The Ironmen set off to Langkawi Malaysia for the World cup Asia event on november 11- 13. We were invited there to represent the USA in the Intercontinental Cup Division of the Tournament. This division featured many teams such as, TonTons from France, Reapers from South Africa, Xfox/Xtioners from Malaysia, Assassalas from Africa, STK from Australia, Datis from Iran and a few others. There were also tons of teams competing in all of the divisional levels.

Our trip started off with a very long flight from Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Kuala Lumpur and then finally to Langkawi. Our hosts were gracious enough to set us up with some local sightseeing tours where we got to see some of the mangroves, eagle feeding and their fantastic beaches. We also were able to take cable cars up to the top of the highest peak on Langkawi for some amazing views. We also were able to eat with the King and Princess of Malaysia for a festive dinner.

Our tournament started off with a match against Xfox/Xtioneers the Malaysian representative that ended with a 3-2 victory for us. The next match was against Assassalas from Gabon Africa, and was also a 4-0 win for us. Our final match of the Prelims was against a strong STK from Australia who we also beat 4-0. On sunday we were up against Datis from Iran who had just won the Division one crown, we also beat them 4-0. The final match was against TonTon’s which we lost in a close fought battle 4-2. Congratulations o the Tontons for their first place victory in the ICC division.

The Ironmen would like to thank everyone for the nice event the put on at WCA and we look forward to coming back next year.
