2007 Golden Triangle: Halifax Event

originally published in the August 2007 issue of Paintball Sports Magazine

The Halifax GT, considered the unofficial start of the outdoor tournament supair season in Atlantic Canada was played on May 26th. Twenty teams from throughout Nova Scotia and New Brunswick who merged on Overkill Sportz in Mount Uniacke Nova Scotia for the first event in the Golden Triangle paintball series for 2007.

The 2007 GT kick off event was played under warm sunny skys, unlike the previous five season opening GTs in which torrential rains and cold temperatures greeted players.
The perfect paintball weather attracted great paintball teams who were ready and willing to play their hearts out after a long winter of hibernation. Incredible slides, dives and run throughs were the hallmark of the day with every player giving it their all.

When the day was done and the flag hangs counted, less then 100 points separated the four podium finishers showing the strength of the field in the Starter division. Tippinators - DraxXuS starter squad of Chris 'Fuzzy' Landry, Justin 'KossaK' Landry, Trevor 'Awkes' Colwell and Mark 'Tinman' Miller were able to win their second consecutive tournament since their victory at the March Meltdown indoor tournament.

After a hard fought battle the Aggression line of Tyler Guitard, Paul Melanson and Shawn Morris proved to be the dominate team, ending the day with the tournament victory.
