Team Dynamix on a Winning Streak! SARPL Event #3 Recap

Monday, April 22nd, 2013

Dynamix are on a winning streak, taking 1st place once again at the recent SARPL Event 3. Craig Marley gave us a write up of the event and shared his thoughts on the performance of the new 2013 Dye product line and Dye CG paint:

SARPL Event 3 – Sunday, 7 April 2013

We had just recieved our new Dye gear and DM13′s before the event, straight out the box, they shot like a dream!

The event started on a very cold Sunday morning putting the Dye CG paint to the test but despite the cold the paint performed really well.

It was amazing because we have only recently gone into winter and at the previous event it had been extremely hot but the Dye CG

paint performed in both extreme temperatures!! This paint truly is incredible!

Dynamix dominated through out the event not losing a single match or point in the prelims. Our new player Daniel Hertog got a

chance to prove himself on the dorito side, he communicated well and got a lot of kills, this kid is a good asset to the team.

 

Dynamix dominated the event, only dropping one point all day to take first place. We also got the fastest game of 31 seconds due to

the all new Dye ultra light gear. The DM13 out the box ran great and CG paint continues to impress us.

Thank you’s to:

Dye for great gear and paint.

Blades and Triggers for all your support for the last 7 years and are proud to be affiliated as a Dye BNT Team.

Havaianas our new addition to our sponsorship for our stylish feet.

Switch Multimedia for the great photography.

And a big thanks to the SARPL for hosting a great event and to all the teams that travelled far and wide to make this a success!

Team Dynamix – Champions of SARPL Event #2

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

Team Dynamix from South Africa recently won the SARPL event 2 in Port Elizabeth. Craig Marley gave us a rundown of the event:

“The weekend started with the alarm waking us up at 1am Saturday morning , we loaded up the cars and trailers, the road trip began. Driving a very long 12hrs we arrived in a sunny and very hot Port Elizabeth. We headed straight to the field to walk it. On arriving, the layout was a lot different to what we had trained on at our home field of Blades and Triggers in Joburg, leaving us to make up a lot of new break out plans. The field walk took us well into Saturday night so it was a long day but we felt prepared for our games.

Sunday started early with setting up tents at the field and getting all our Dye gear ready. We were a bit worried about the Dye CG Paint as it had travelled in a trailer for 12 hours in the baking sun, much to our surprise the Dye CG paint shot great throughout the whole tourney giving us no problems at all. We started bashing out games early and with our new game plans we were very strong only dropping 2 points in the pool stages.

Leading into the semi’s, we played a very strong Johannesburg team, Reapers. We took first point the way we had most of the day but they had picked up some flaws in our game plan and used it against us. After a long point they managed to shoot all of us out, taking the second point. We quickly got together and changed our plans and used completely different break outs which we had not tried. We came back using a different game putting us in the finals.

We met a team from Port Elizabeth in the finals. We started off strong but dropped the second point. We got our heads back into the game to fight back as it was a long drive back and no one wanted that drive with a second place finish. After grinding the last point we had shot out their players and hung the flag taking the WIN!

With the second RPL completed we drove 12hrs back to Johannesburg with us arriving home at 5:30am but all of us smiling and as happy. We could not have done it without the help from our sponsors DYE, Blades and Triggers, DYE CG paintballs and the Smuts family. Thanks for all the support.”

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.”

Velocity Paintball’s “Santas vs. Grinches” Big-Game a Major Success

Monday, December 17th, 2012

December 16th, 2012: Santa’s vs. Grinches Scenario Big-Game @ Velocity Paintball, Ramona CA

This past weekend, DYE made an appearance at one of Southern California’s oldest paintball parks and retail outlets, Velocity Paintball in Ramona, California.  The game type was fun, the turnout was excellent, and the DYE booth was poppin’ with players testing out the brand new DAM’s, DM13′s, and Reflexes that were on display, free of charge.

It’s amazing what a kid will do to win free DYE products.  Going into the event, DYE had a few of the 2013 i4 Goggles to give away but weren’t exactly sure how they wanted to award them to the loyal DYE fans at the event.  With a little help from Denise from Velocity, a stand on one foot/rub your belly/tap your head contest was born, and after nearly 30 minutes of intense tapping, spinning, jumping, and avoiding incoming grenades, a winner finally emerged.

Over 100 players from all over California joined in on the action, including some of Dye’s flagship players like Justin “LJ” Schwarz from the Los Angeles Ironmen and “Trucker Billy” Robertson from the Tactical Ironmen.

Overall the event was nothing but good times and smooth sailing.  The reefing was excellent, there was a friendly holiday vibe, and it seemed like everyone at Velocity Paintball Park went home with a big smile on their face.
