Atlantic GT - Atlantic Xtreme Paintball

Tippinators competed in the Moncton stop of the "Golden Triangle (GT) 2006 Series" speedball tournament held at Atlantic Xtreme Paintball, Memramcook, New Brunswick on July 15th, 2006. The team managed another seventh place for a respectable middle of the pack finish for the mil sim airball team in their first interprovincial tournament and road trip in this the second of the Atlantic GT series. Unlike the cold rain endured at the Halifax GT the competitors in this tournament were pleased to finally play on a perfect day with sun and hot temperatures.
Twelve 3-man teams and eight 5-man teams in attendance gave rave reviews to Mike Bourque and his crew at Atlantic Xtreme Paintball on the pseudo X-Ball field set up which made for a great day of paintballing.

Once again the Tippinators took their mil sim Tippmann A-5's up against an incredibly talented field of players from across the region in the premier speedball tournament series in Atlantic Canada. While still not completely accustomed to playing speedball at the level of the GT Series the team had a better idea of what to expect from the opposing teams and were able to go nose to nose with every team in the field. The Tippinators trade mark hand shakes and play with honor style while still drawing odd looks and a few comments from the crowd is helping the team make more friends within the speedball community. During every tournament more and more teams stopping by the Tippinators tent to socialize during breaks in play.

 The highlight of the tournament for the team was the play of the Tippinators youngest player and Tippinators Grey Squad member, Josh 'Fireball' Boiduk. Fireball showed poise beyond his 13 years during his first regional tournament by standing his ground, snap shooting like pro and scoring eliminations against his electro super marker wielding opponents. Win or lose Fireball was always the first to shake hands and thank the other team for a great game. With young players like Fireball on the roster the future of the Tippinators looks bright.

Congratulations to all the winning teams of the Moncton GT. It was a perfect day for paintball and an opportunity to show your considerable skills. Good job everyone.
