Tippinators Narrowly Miss Podium at Moncton GT

Heavy mist and constant drizzle greeted the players attending the second Golden Triangle speedball event of 2007 held June 23 at Atlantic Xtreme Paintball in Moncton New Brunswick. The 17 teams in attendance were happy with the improved forecast on game day after heavy rain that had saturated the region over the previous two days.
This stop on the Atlantic GT series was open class only, with a mix of first time tourney teams to professional members of AXBL franchises playing. AXBL players from Fredericton Aggression, Dieppe Aces and Eights and Grand Falls Under Dawgz used the GT to familiarize themselves with the field for the AXBL event scheduled for the next day.

The rain created a slick playing surface and mud making the footing treacherous but also made for incredible slides all over the field. Steven Fong of the Tippinators SpecOps line found sliding easier then normal, "It was really easy to slide, the problem was stopping. A couple of times I watched as the bunker I was heading for went past and I was still going." Fong recounted one such slide, "I was moving up the field and dove for the X box on my 40, the next thing I knew I was under the middle of the center X with paint coming at me from two sides."
