The third stop on the PSP circuit was held in Joliet, just outside of the windy city of Chicago, Illinois. This four day event has been held at this location for a number of years and as usual, the forecast was promising for bad weather. Just days before the tournament started, the skies were thick with rain, wind, and the piercing sound of the tornado alarms. Thankfully, no cyclones came to visit during the event, but the thunderstorms sure did. The grounds didn’t stand a chance, turning from grassy on Thursday to sloppy, muddy slush by Sunday. Though these conditions added to the difficulty of the overall competition, the teams stepped up to the challenge. No matter what colors they wore when they arrived on Thursday, those who made it onto past the first two days left brown and dirty!
“If words of command are not clear and distinct, if orders are not thoroughly understood, then the general is to blame. But, if orders are clear and the soldiers nevertheless disobey, then it is the fault of their officers.” – Sun Tzu, 5th century B.C.

B.O.B. stands for “Ballers on Budgets” they all have Bob Long guns or CCM’s…top of the line guns and gear BUT that’s very likely why they can’t afford to play as much, so they thought BOB sounded great. The White part just came from nowhere, a bob white to this team in Nebraska is a quail that has a very unique whistle that they used to try to use on the field to communicate…one of their members couldn’t whistle to save his life so in one game they heard the whistles and someone just shouted “BOB WHITE, damnit!” and it sort of just stuck.
The 2014 PSP Circuit will consist of 5 major events, offering several divisions of play including the RaceTo format and Pump Competitions, as well as the incorporation of the Ultimate Woodsball League. A massive grandstand, the largest tradeshow and a live webcast are some of the features you will see again this season at the PSP events.

Immortal Air’s Regulators have launched!
The Catshack Reports caught an exclusive! I had a lengthy conversation with Mr. Dan Colby of “Immortal Air” with regards to his highly anticipated return to paintball, his new company and initial product launch. Many of you know Dan from “Air America” Today he has launched a new name but is giving the same awesome service that he has always provided! He is elated about the product launch as well as his future endeavors to satisfy his customers 100%. I was also given the opportunity to put his expertise to the test and try his new line of regulators. A first hand and an unvarnished assessment of the product and the man behind high pressure air regulation.
