Incredible Story – Dye Rotor Survives Car Fire, Still Works!

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

 

The title says it all.  George Bel, a school teacher who picked the wrong day to leave his windows cracked in the faculty parking lot, was the victim of a horrible finals week retaliation by one of his students.  However, rising from the flames was this incredible story of a Dye Rotor proving it’s durability even in the most extreme environments.

by George Bel

“Working as a teacher has its perks. One of those perks is that you get to do lots of great things with the kids.  For example,  I was trying to start up a paintball club at our school. Out of eight potentially interested students, there were six Dye owners, and at one point we were trying to put together a proposal to hopefully get sponsored by you guys.

Being a teacher also has its downs, however… I’ve learned the hard way that I should never park my car in the staff teachers parking spots with my windows open, no matter how hot it gets. Some disgruntled student decided to torch a teachers car indiscriminately, and I was the lucky winner of that raffle.

I lost everything in there, including my izon sight, but my Rotor miraculously lived, and works just fine! Thank goodness I left my Dye Dam at home that day, I would have cried if I lost that guy.”

Hard2Overcome Wins 3rd Round of PAVS and Makes Local News!

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Hard2Overcome continued their winning run by taking out Round 3 of PAVS on their home field at Adrenalin Paintball Club.

Although rain was forecast for most of the day it stayed away to allow perfect conditions for paintball. The team finished the day with 9 wins and 1 loss which further stretched its lead at the top of the table with just 2 rounds remaining. It was a day full of mixed feelings with team mate Mark Renden standing on the sidelines after having surgery on his ACL two days prior.

Team captain Craig McIver said that from the first game we wanted to perform well and do Mark proud, and during his 12 month recovery he will be coaching the team. Overall the day went well even with team numbers down and we are looking forward to the next round. Thanks once again to Dye and Devon Stutz for the awesome gear. As a bonus we had the local news crew come out and get some footage which has been posted on YouTube!
