SoCal Ghosts festively recount Santas Vs. Grinches scenario.

Friday, December 20th, 2013

 

Once upon a time in the little town of San Diego stood a nice place, Velocity Paintball Park, whose staff was quite able. In winter’s chill, a war would
rage, ‘tween jolly Saint Nick, his red clad elves, against the giant green meanie, the Grinch himself. They would come from near, they would come
from far, they would come by truck, and they would come by car. Above them the skies were clear, a brilliant pure blue, and not a flake of snow below
them, on the ground, tis true! Velocity Paintball would be the venue this day and by its end, one side would hold sway!

To the first fight of the day, the horn did announce and the minions of theGrinch how quickly they pounced. Christmas trees with their tin and
decorations so bright were swooped up in a flash and in Grinch’s green might. Why even Santa’s milk and cookies, always such a delight, were grabbed
and gobbled and taken out of sight! “Ho, Ho, NO!” cried Santa so loud and so jolly. Off went the elves armed with mistletoe and holly. They pushed and
they pushed, and they fought and they fought until, it would seem, they would certainly foil the Grinch plot. Backed up to his lair, the elves with mount
Crumpit, the Grinch laughed his Grinch laugh and smiled his Grinch smile, then sent off his minions determined to stop it. Oh how the paint flew,
colorfully round as a cherry, oh how the battle grew, with the players laughing so merry. At the end of the first game there arose such a ruckus from the
Grinch’s dark horde that all those in Whoville already guessed the dark score.

“This cannot go on!” Santa decreed, “We must save Christmas! Press on, full speed!” Upon switching sides, the elves how they flew and quickly took
back most of that stolen buy you-know-who. The Grinch how he bellowed to keep up the fight and Santa he hollered to all a good night! The firing
was quick, the action intense, both sides pressed hard but kept up their defense. Bunkers blew as rockets flew and sometimes one couldn’t tell who was
who but the second round belonged, by the end of the day, to the boys and girls in red, and led Santa to say “Thank you all who fought so quick
against the greenies who acted so slick and I hope and I hope with all my elfish might that we made it stick and we won back the fight!”

And while they enjoyed the victory so deserved, they were all rightly shocked when the news they had heard. Christmas was lost, upon that snowless
field, to the Grinch with his sneer and to those whom he had appealed. As the night came the little ones sat, in their little red shirts and their little red
hats. There they would cry, “Oh Santa! The Grinch he won! You said he was through!” Santa just sat there, a little less merry for it was true. Then he
spoke to the children, “We just couldn’t stop him, I’m ever so sorry.” and sulked away a little less jolly.

Don’t worry though Santa, and kids don’t you fear, for the Grinch may have stolen Christmas but there’s always next year!

Osvaldo “Papa” Lopes staying busy in the off-season

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

15 miles from Sau Paulo, Brazil, in the town of Peruz. Ops Field, an old cement factory, is a very large field that looks like a scene from World War II. They always hold a variety of exciting games, which is a great way to mix it up in the off-season. One thing that makes the game very interesting….. you can only use your loader of paint. You can’t take any extra paint, so you have to attack, and make as many one-shot-kills as possible. Sometimes the games are 50 vs. 50 so every ball counts! Its a great way to hone your skills, and still have fun in the off-season.
Big thanks to DYE Tactical for all of the gear! See everyone in 2014!

StaarGate 2014 by William “The Prince” Clifford

StaarGate 2014

On the weekend of the 14th and 15th of September I ventured North to Leeds, to play the annual StaarGate big game, held at the Powerplay field. This would be my first year playing Staargate, and having heard such great stories; with over 500 players attending, I just had to play!

Arriving early on the Saturday was great – there was so much to walk around and see; from a bouncy castle to a 20v20 speedball match. Once I’d set my tent up, I headed down to the staging area to gear up and take part in the oldies v young-guns game. We played two rounds of this and us young-guns won confidently each round. It was a great chance to play on a small segment of the field and get a taste for what the big game was going to be like!

The organisers of the UK’s tournament series – the CPPS – were running a Sup’Air mini game to give people the chance to try it out for the first time, so later that afternoon I hopped on there and had a blast – still rocking the DAM, ofcourse! It brought back some great memories from my days as a tournament player, and my equipment preformed just as flawlessly as it does out in the woods!

Sunday began with an explosive start and we quickly managed to push the blues right back into their re-spawn area thanks to some aggressive gameplay. My highlight of the weekend was sneaking through the bushes and winning a 4 on 1 – I mean it when I say this camo works. Take a look at some of the photos! (Credits to BradloPhotography).

Timing the last push perfectly with great effect, we managed to push the blue team out of the key areas thanks to decisive communication from our faction leaders. We dominated gameplay on the Sunday and we ultimately cruised home victorious. It was a great weekend with lots of exciting fire fights on the field, and a great opportunity to catch up with some old friends off the field.

Huge thanks to Shoreline Outdoor Paintball for by far the best scenario game I’ve been to all year and a huge thanks to Dye Paintball UK and Dye Tactical for the outstanding gear.

 

Catch me on Facebook @ WilliamCliffordOfficial and Instagram @wclifford93 for photos and videos from the events I attend.

The final stop on my war tour is a mag fed only event that I’ll be playing in Draklow Tunnels. So look forward to seeing some epic firefights!

WOLF Reports from Mag-Fed Game – Operation: Honey Badger

Operation: Honey Badger

PRZ Paintball – Ontario Canada

by Andrew “WOLF” Critchlow

On the 21st of July I was lucky enough to attend the Awesome game entitled “Operation Honey Badger 2: The Return of Acinaces Dente” . What makes this paintball event special is that its a Magazine fed/Tac Cap ONLY game, which means you’re only allowed a limited amount of paintballs on the field.

Adam Collyer and his son Brandon were the creators of this Great event, and I thank them for such an Eye opening experience. As the Owner of a DYE DAM this was a dream come true, the opportunity to shoot with some of the Best paintballs around, using just magazines. 200 of some of the most tactical players I have encountered amassed at PRZ paintball, a massive indoor/outdoor facility that is an abandoned Hospital transformed into a Paintball dream, numerous 2 and 3 storied buildings, utilized for the most extreme sport.

A Mag fed game means you have to choose each and every shot, no spraying and praying, no painting targets trying to get a lucky hit. There were 3 snipers allowed on the rooftops using First strike rounds, Tactical lights for the dark hallway battles, and laser sights for spotting the enemy.

The game was a tactical dream, radios were used to coordinate attacks, and accomplish missions, smoke grenades were allowed outside to cover shooters from sniper fire, and a lot of amazing props were used to enhance the atmosphere, Missiles, Radar stations, and bio weapons made for an Epic experience.

I had the Honor to meet many players, and giveaway some cool DYE Gear, and I can’t wait to do it again Next Year!!!
