My paintball experience continues to amaze having embarked on so many journeys many of which I only dreamed of. 2013 proved another season of paintball that had news that was both happy and in some cases somewhat sad as the paintball world continues to evolve.
Don’t forget this coming Sunday September 29th 2013 at Vaughan Paintball, the Rockstar franchise will be looking for potential players to play in their MXL and Elite Divisions for 2014. These players will represent their Senior Squads for Rockstar Factory Canada in the Canadian Xtreme Paintball League.
Paintball, one, if not the only sport activity that can be shared on an even playing field between father’s and son’s (and for that matter mothers and daughters!). Throughout the CXBL tournament series annually, there are several such examples of father’s and son’s sharing the experience as something great to do together.
What a weekend of paintball that was the 2013 NAX Finals at Commando Paintball in Ottawa! I can personally recall at least 4 such fine examples of father’s and son’s working together and out to have a blast competing in paintball for the weekend. The Catshack took a moment to touch base with fellow photographer, Sheldon Carless to formulate a summary of various games and thoughts from all divisions. Below are some of our insights into what was witnessed as this exciting weekend wore on.
Miss Catshack 2013, Kate Peer is a solid baller who enjoys the game and has become very involved with the community in the region in which she lives. To learn a little more about Kate, The Catshack Reports caught up to her at the recent CXBL tournament at Flag Raiders Paintball in Kitchener ON. Kate was present to help out Drummondville Daytona of the Elite Division in their pits.
Excuse me but WOW! … first and foremost a great big round of applause goes out to both Flag Raiders Paintball and BuyPBL. Almost two weeks ago a severe storm such as happened some time ago at one of the major PSP tournaments in Galveston, Texas had blown in and smashed the Raiders field flat. Both Raiders and BuyPBL came together and pulled it out of their proverbial hat getting the damage repaired and the field up and running in time to see Event 3 take place at the field. THANK YOU!
The Catshack Reports in the company of one of our sponsored teams “The Lethal Ladies” made tracks for the grand opening of Vaughan Paintball just outside Toronto, Ontario on May 18th, 2013. Having been to the field a number of times before it was immediately clear how much work has already gone into building the field up from its former state under this new management.
Welcome to the new paintball facility in Vaughan. During the month of December 2012 my partners and I were in negotiations with the landowner on securing the area for the 2013 season. The facility has always been part of my life since it’s minutes away from home. I’ve always been in close contact with the developer of the property and kept a good relationship.
