Aruba Madness Makes Their Mark at 2012 PSP World Cup

Aruba Madness makes their mark on World Cup 2012

Aruba Madness, a DYE sponsored team from the small Caribbean Island, Aruba, played their hearts out this year at the 2012 PSP World Cup.  These beliers proved this year that it doesn’t matter where you live or how small paintball is where you’re from, all that matters is dedication, training, and heart.  For Aruba Madness, every weekend at practice, every tournament they played away from their country, every dollar they spent was all in preparation for the 2012 PSP World Cup.  Aruba is small, only 69 square miles, and a population of barely 100,000. But like many small countries, what it lacks in size it makes up ten-fold with national pride.

The team spent all of 2012 traveling throughout Latin America to larger events in order to find the toughest competition. They even traveled as far as Florida for a leg of the PSP affiliate league, the CFPS, where Aruba Madness Youngbloodz took first in their division.  When it was Time for World Cup, the boys from Aruba were confident and ready to represent their small country. They knew Aruba paintball could be competitive on the global stage, and they were ready to prove it.

The Aruba Madness camp fielded three teams for World cup this year. AM Kids played well for their first International event, placing just short of a Sunday showing. Aruba madness finished 1st in the prelims and ended up taking 6th overall in their division.  AM Youngbloodz powered through the competition, only losing two games the entire weekend.  Unfortunately, one of those losses came during the finals, and Yougbloodz had to settle for 2nd place.

All three teams from the Aruba Madness camp played with passion and proudly represented their small country all weekend long.  Thrilled at their accomplishments on Sunday afternoon, the team was not content to rest for long. Aruba Madness is already back on the training field, and seeking out tougher competition, with trips to more PSPs planned for next year. The Bar has been set and the goals have been raised; Win World Cup 2013.

“Aruba Madness would like to thank all of our local and international fans very much for all the support. Also we want to give big thanks our sponsors that made this year possible:”

Evolution wins D2 & D3 EPPL Series Titles

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

The last event of the EPPL (Ecuadorian Professional Paintball League) was held in Quito, Ecuador, and with a massive turnout of over 40 teams spread across four divisions, this was the event to be at in South America.

Our flagship team in Ecuador, Team Evolution, showed up ready to play as they breezed their way to the finals and found themselves matched up against a team they smashed in the prelims, Team Zurikatas.  In a really exciting finals match, Evolution would fall to Zurikatas 1-2, but still left victorious as the D2 Series Champions.  Evolution 2 also brought home some gold as the D3 Series Champs.

Congrats!

Aside from all of the competition,the DYE booth at the event was amazing, the biggest ever made in South America.  Tech service was on point, the staff service was excellent for our customers, and we had a full display of the entire 2013 product line. Dye SA created a stage so people could take pictures with the Dye Pros and win one of many prizes that were given out to the crowd.
A message from Juan Daniel Nebel Romero:
“Dye and Proto paint was sold at the event, probably the best paint I have shot in my life, it was a complete succes between the teams.  Our season is not over yet, we have one last event this weekend called “The Navikill”, a tactical event where we will be presenting the DAM to all of the players.  We are expecting Mr. U to come later this week, so look out for news and pictures of this event!
Thanks to DYE for their support this year on another succesfull season for Evolution, cant wait for next year!”
