Coming Up To Almost A Full Year Without Blog Posts

So here at ThisISPaintball.ca we decided that we would be silent for one full year from writing blog posts about paintball events, league updates, product reviews or new releases to show our concern over where the industry is heading and how the loss of the core values which paintball once held were really being throw to the side in the search for profits.

While there has not really been many of those issues disappear ThisISPaintball.ca is starting to create and share content again but will only be showcasing news from those companies which are building a healthy paintball industry and trying to showcase the local events which are really supporting true players which are keeping the industry afloat with buying & paying for their products.

Good luck to all teams & players in the 2011 season hopefully lessons can be noticed to the failures in the past few years in the paintball industry and adjustments made to make sure the sport keeps growing in the correct fashion without forgetting where the sport started off from.

AXBL 2009 All Star Game & Event 3 Results

ThisISPaintball.ca Article Written By Kyle Muffty

Finally, a mix of hand-picked AXBL players from both Eastern and Western conferences were chosen to compete in the All-Star match of the season. The event took place at Paintball Quest in Sodus, New York, a field that the players where already familiar with from the previous event. It was quite the start to a weekend of paintball. Each team started by having their names called out, lining-up in order. Following this was a get-it-up chant to see which team was in favor, the outcome was clearly Eastern. Then just minutes before the first point of the match, a pod-toss was thrown out to all the players and spectators in the crowd. Intensity and excitement was in the air, along with both teams fired-up and ready to play.

The first point was taken by Western. Surprisingly, the next three were also scored before Eastern even scored their first. The crowds were second-guessing their final score picks at this point by a lot. By half-time the score was 7-2 for Western. Buddy Baur was bringing his team towards the win, unfortunately for Dan Zaleski, captain of Eastern. Back and forth, points were taken and lost. Eastern finally had a minor comeback in the match, scoring a few back-to-back points. It just wasn’t enough with Westerns 5 point lead, leaving the final score of the match 11-6 for Western. Nonetheless, both conferences proved to have some truly talented paintball players. Good job guys!

More big news was released from Bronx Hate in the MXL division. After both their wins against Team No Name and Baltimore Inflict, they were now guaranteed the AXBL spot for next season. It was a difficult season of hard work and grinding through the trenches, but clearly their efforts brought them on top. Congratulations to a job well done!

Sunday brought out more amazing matches. Attica Intent laid a beat down on Somerville Crisis with a final score 16-5. The same went for Philadelphia All American Heroes as they made a statement with their 17-3 score on Binghamton Blackout.  Binghamton Blackout managed to squeeze in a win later that day against Wellsville Express with a final score of 9-8. Rockland Hustle was able to win their only match of the day against Sodus Predators with a final score of 11-6.  These matches will be making or breaking a few teams and their standings. Hopefully it’s something enough for them to make back at the All American Paintball Park just a month away.

The weekend of paintball couldn’t have been better. Even the weather that was calling for showers of rain, turned out to be clear, sunny skies. Thanks go out to BuyPBL, DXS, VForce, Smart Parts, Sup Airball, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and FantasyPB for making this event what it was. Good-luck to everybody and see you at E4!
