Operation Sandy: Paintball Fundraising Success by Pete “Mr. U.” Utschig

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

by: Pete “Mr. U.” Utschig

It always seems to blow my mind how when something terrible happens in this country, we always turn around, rally together, and come back stronger. I couldn’t be prouder to be a paintball player than I was the day Operation Sandy was born.

From the first phone call to friends and sponsors until the last shot of special made KEE red white and blue paintballs were fired, there was nothing but an outpouring of help and support. Every player,field owner, and manufacturer involved reached into there pockets and gave. On top of that, over 20 fields and thousands of players turned out to show support for all the people and paintballer’s effected by the hurricane.

Cousins Paintball in Long Island was the first field to sign up and was a flagship field spearheading Operation Sandy.  It was on Long Island, one of the hardest hit areas by the hurricane, that I took the field against long time friend and teammate Nicky Cuba. After a full day of paintball and down home ball breaking, Cuba was crowned victorious.

In the end, the real winners were all the people that will receive much needed help from the thousands of dollars raised throughout the weekend, not to mention all the players that won some of the great prizes in the raffles inclining two young guys at my game that won DYE Reflexes and Empire AXEs. Once again I want to thank everyone involved but especially everyone at DYE that I consider my second family.  Every time I ever need anything, you guys are there!!!!

A heart felt Thank You from NYC.

HULK Paintball Team Gearing up for 2013 with new HULK Arena and more Charity

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

With so many dedicated players in the HULK Paintball organization, these Ukranians realized the ability they have to not only set themselves up for a great 2013 season of paintball, but also to give back to their community.

HULK boasts over 40 players that practice and compete both in Ukraine and around the world.  Now, in 2013, captain Yaroslav Yanushevich is proud to announce that “HULK Arena” is officially open.  That’s right, these guys have their own private training facility, complete with brand new turf, a Ukraine-approved heating system, and, sure, why not… a giant mural of the team in the backdrop.

Not only are Team HULK upgrading their practice facility, but they are also upgrading their organization as a whole.  HULK has delegated members of the team to hold important positions in the hierarchy that is HULK Paintball.  The hard-working members received their new roles with honor this past December.

Despite all of the upgrades to the HULK Paintball Team, the always selfless Ukrainian ballers from Eastern Europe made it a point to give back on New Years Day, 2013.

“Today, our team continues to supporting children that need our help” mentioned the team.  ”On New Years we visited a place where we were awaited and welcome, ‘City of Happy Children’ children’s center.

The kids were happy to get their presents, but besides tradiditional Christmas Toys, HULK presented the children with a variety of sports equipment.  Now the kids have enough badminton rackets, balls, ropes, and other sporting equipment to last them a long time.”
