All-Female Team Poison Ivy to Play Division 1 at World Cup Asia 2012

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

For the last 7 years, Team Poison Ivy has been gracing the paintball community with an attractive (and deadly) female roster, ready and willing to compete against any opponents that get put in front of them.  In 2012, Poison Ivy has made a few key pick ups that are going to help them compete against the worlds best at the 2012 World Cup Asia, including Karoline Seheim, Linda Graue, and their newest roster addition/coach Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid.

“It is fun to see that in the last few years, the amount of females playing paintball is growing rapidly” mentions team co-founder Linn Andersen.  ”We attended WCA in 2011 and are excited to be back to the beautiful island of Langkawi and to experience what the organizers say will be even better then the last year. We didn’t think it would be possible to top last year’s event, but we’re sure that if anybody can do it, it’s the WCA organizers.”

What makes these girls different?  They know how to win.  ”We play smart, have very technically good players on the team, and have a good team spirit. All that and more are going to help us go all the way to the top during WCA.”

The 2012 Poison Ivy Roster:

Benedicte Rønneberg (Captain)

Linda Graue

Silje Eriksen

Linn Askevold

Guest players:

Freddie Brockdorff and Cecilia Rickardsson, our friends from FLCharms.

And last, but not least: our coach, and co-player this time, Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid

2012 PSP World Cup – Day 5 Recap

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Another year, another PSP World Cup in the books.  350 teams have come and gone, and one Dye team was just inches from becoming the World Cup Pro Division Champs in 2012.

Damage fought hard all season long, winning the home opener in Galveston and getting on the podium at all but one event this year.  Although they weren’t able to win their finals match against Heat, Tampa Bay Damage made the podium at 4/5 PSP events this season, securing a 2nd place overall finish, a 2nd place a cup, and a mountain of respect from around the league.  Ironmen also ended the year strong with a 4th place finish at cup and 4th place overall finish, and we even had some love from South America as our boys Way Out grabbed 2nd place in D2/3 Race to 2!

On a more serious note, a special moment took place on Sunday afternoon in the Dye Booth, when the Make a Wish Foundation brought one lucky young man to the Dye Photo Wall for a photoshoot with his favorite professional paintball players.  Members of Damage, Ironmen, X-Factor, Infamous, and Houston Heat all took the time to make an appearance for a photo that he and everyone who was there will remember forever.

The Dye Photo Wall was definitely the place to be on Sunday, as players from Damage, Ironmen and CEP were hanging out and taking photos with their fans all afternoon.  The Dye “Polaroid Pics with the Pros” was a major success, with nearly 100 signed polaroid pictures being handed to any fan who stepped up to the red carpet.   This was just one of many fun activities that were going on at the gigantic 2012 PSP World Cup Dye Booth, however, as our new tactical marker, The DAM, was getting some serious attention from fans and store owners alike..

Dealing with the powerful wind that swept across central Florida all week long, the Dye crew was finally able to open up “The DAM Experience” on Sunday, a first hand look at the brand new Dye Assault Matrix.  Anyone willing to wait in line could walk through the Dye Tactical Tunnel, grab a pair of i3 A-Pro goggles, load up a few 20 round mags and go to town on Plexiglas targets and cinder blocks at Dye’s own private shooting range.  The age spectrum was vast and the fun level was high as paintball lovers of all ages lined up to shoot the new DAM free of charge.

Enjoy our photo set from Sunday the 2012 PSP World Cup.  We hope you had a chance to stop by our booth and check out the wide range of 2013 Dye Paintball products.  Be sure to like us on Facebook – Facebook.com/DyePrecisionInc and Facebook.com/DyeTactical, follow us on Instagram @DYEPaintball and Twitter @DyePrecisionInc, and stay updated via our blog for everything Dye related!

2012 PSP World Cup – Day 4 Recap

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Another day, another incredible set of matches brought to us by the PSP & PaintballAccess.com!

Saturday was crunch time, the last chance for teams to prove that they deserve to be competing for the coveted 2012 World Cup Champion title.  Two teams that are definitely in the hunt are the Los Angeles Ironmen and Tampa Bay Damage.  Both teams had close matches early in the day, with Ironmen squeezing out a win over Impact, hanging the winning flag with only 10 seconds left to spare.  Damage let their early game against XSV slip through their fingertips as XSV was able to upset them 3-2, but immediately stole their momentum back when they squared off against the Ironmen and won convincingly 6-1.

Off the field, the Dye booth tried something new & fun at this event, a ‘Polaroid Pics with the Pros’ session at the official Dye Photo Wall.  Proffesional players from the Ironmen, CEP and Damage were snapping pics for hours with their fans who all got to take home the photo and get them signed by their favorite players.

Enjoy the Saturday photo gallery, log on to www.PaintballAccess.com for the pristine webcast live from the event, and get ready for an exciting day of PSP Paintball tomorrow!

SUNDAY SCHEDULE:

Ironmen vs. Infamous – 8:00 am

Damage vs. (TBD) – 11:50 am

2012 PSP World Cup Recap – Day 3

Saturday, October 27th, 2012

Day 3 was full of excitement (and an unexpected wind storm) for the hundreds of teams and thousands of spectators at the 2012 PSP World Cup.  The pressure is on as teams are now fighting to move past the prelims and get in position to “#winworldcup.”

Two teams that definitely have a chance to go all the way are Tampa Bay Damage and the Los Angeles Ironmen.  Yet to lose a point at this event, the Ironmen have put up 14 unanswered points so far in the pro division, taking down Upton 187 cRew 7-0 today.  Sporting the brand new Ultralite playing gear, DM13′s, i4′s & Rotors, both Damage and Ironmen were able to keep their undefeated streaks and continue to dominate in the Pro division at this event.

Always willing to support their fans, the Dye booth hosted a massive poster signing and jersey giveaway for Los Angeles Ironmen.  Over 200 posters and 30 Ironmen jerseys were given away to the always loyal LA Ironmen fans from around the world!

We’ve got two more days of action left at this incredible event, so stay tuned for more photos here and tune in to www.PaintballAccess.com to watch the best in the world compete at the 2012 PSP World Cup!

Saturday Game Schedule:

Ironmen vs Impact 11:30am

Damage vs XSV 12:15pm

CEP vs Aftershock 2:30pm

Damage vs Ironmen 3:15pm

2012 PSP World Cup – Day 2 Recap

Friday, October 26th, 2012

Games have officially begun at the 2012 PSP World Cup, and the new DM13′s, Ultralite Pants/Jerseys, and C13 are looking fresh!

Tampa Bay Damage and Los Angeles Ironmen got off to a great start today, both winning their matches convincingly.  Damage took down Upton 187 cRew 7-3 and the Ironmen breezed through Seattle Thunder 7-0.

The real story of the day was Chattanooga CEP, as they came out STRONG against two very tough opponents, Moscow Red Legion and X-Factor.  CEP had the advantage on the Russians early, keeping the game close at 3-3.  Penalties unfortunately took the wind out of their sails, and they struggled to keep up their momentum, eventually losing 3-7.  Again versus X-Factor, CEP was able to get off to a great 2-2 start, but couldn’t stay consistent and lost 2-7.  CEP that they are able to compete with some of the toughest teams in paintball, but their inability to stay consistent late in matches is keeping them from making their first Sunday appearance after entering the pro division.

In the afternoon, there was a massive line outside of the Dye Booth for all of the fangs from around the world who wanted to snag some free posters and T-Shirts from Tampa Bay Damage.  The star-studded team is always happy to show their fans love, and will be doing multiple signings throughout the event!

Tomorrow we’ve got a full line up of games, with Damage taking on Thunder, CEP playing Houston Heat, and Ironmen against Upton 187 cRew late in the afternoon.  Be sure to tune in to www.PaintballAccess.com to check out the matches live via the most professional webcast in paintball, hosted by Matty Marshall & co.
