Paintball Sports Trade Association Offers Free Young Guns Event At PSP Chicago Open

Cross Posted From PaintballSportsMag.com

Paintball Sports Trade Association to Host Free Tournament at Chicago Open, the Paintball Sports Trade Association (PSTA) continues on its mission to help “increase awareness, acceptance, and participation” at the PSP Chicago Open. The PSTA plans to host a Young Guns Tournament with free entry and a Target Range during the Chicago Open event in June. At the beginning of this year, the PSTA showed its full support of the 5th Annual Paintball Extravaganza held this past February. Thanks to the PSTA and its board members comprised of industry veterans like DYE Precision’s Dave DeHaan (Chairman); Rick Chard, President of Paintball Events Unlimited LLC; Craig Miller; and PBNation’s President, Ed Rieker, just to name a few, this past February’s Paintball Extravaganza was a complete success. In fact, it was such a huge success that there will be another trade show specific to paintball business owners in September of this year (details of this next tradeshow to come soon).

Free Entry Young Guns Tournament

Newly appointed PSTA Director, Russell Maynard, said, “We want to do something different that’s never been done before by hosting a free tournament for players 12-18 years old who have never played a PSP event.” This PSP 5-man format, double-elimination format will take place on June 28th only and will be on a PSP field officiated by PSP referees. There will be only one division with a maximum of 24 teams. Young Gun aged participants will be supplied with DYE and Smart Parts paintball markers, hoppers, and air systems free of charge; even the air fills and their paint will be supplied at no cost to them! Players only need to bring their goggle systems and appropriate attire to play in the tournament.

“Young Gun aged participants will be supplied with DYE and Smart Parts paintball markers, hoppers, and air systems free of charge; even the air fills and their paint will be supplied at no cost to them!”

Both Paintball Sports Promotions and the PSTA are joining forces to sponsor these young players to give them a chance to experience what it’s like to play at a PSP event. There are special limitations as the rate of fire is restricted to semi-only and only 150 rounds per player for each game is allowed. Players will have to chrono at 270 fps, as well.

Target Range

There will also be a target range where PSTA Manufacturers’ paintball markers will be available to shoot for free. Representatives of each manufacturer will be there to explain the marker’s features. The Target Range will be open from 10AM until 4PM on June 27thand 28th during the PSP Chicago Open. This target range will be equipped with real life targets for players to shoot at! “PSP Pro tournament players from PSTA member sponsored teams will be on the range for kids to shoot at,” said Maynard. He continued, “What the PSP and the PSTA are attempting to do is create a better interaction between the consumer and the industry.” Since there will be no charge for air and marker usage at the Target Range, a small fee of only $3.00 for 100 rounds of sponsored paintballs. The reason for the cost is to help offset the cost of paint given to the Young Guns teams.

“PSP Pro tournament players from PSTA member sponsored teams will be on the range for kids to shoot at,” said Maynard.

It is the PSTA’s hope to bring the Target Range to places like traveling car shows where people will have a chance to get a feel for the markers, comparison shop, and get a hands-on look at the latest marker technology. To see a list of the PSTA Manufacturers that will feature their guns at the PSP Chicago Open, visit their website at www.Paintball.org.

Maynard said, “If the Young Guns Tournament and Target Range are as successful as we anticipate, we will be offering this again at all the remaining PSP events this year.” As the PSTA adds more events to their schedule, it is their hope to have local field/store volunteers to help run the Target Range. For more information about the free Young Guns Tournament, the Target Range, and the PSTA, please contact the PSTA Director, Russell Maynard, via their website atwww.Paintball.org.

iPhone BPS Meter

Wherever you go, whatever field or game format, players now have the ability to track their rate of fire with nearly the same accuracy as a PACT timer. The BPS Meter for the iPhone is designed to be simple and easy to use. Don’t get us wrong- this isn’t a replacement for the PACT, but it certainly provides an inexpensive and more widely available tool for players (if you’re willing to put your $400 phone next to a paintball marker).

PBNation.com Takes Things On The Road For 2009

There are not many things paintball related outside of the actual events that amaze me but PBNation.com has done a great job with their recent project, the PBNation.com Skybus.

 

The Skydeck

The PbNation Skydeck is a unique vehicle as only about 100 of these units were every made and this one will be refurbished and customized specifically for use by PbNation staff, members and sponsors.

The Skydeck is a two story motor coach with a patio deck for 15 on the top floor.

On the inside in the front is a stairwell to the top deck (only interior stairwell on a motor coach).

In the midsection will be another sofa and Pullman bunk with a dropdown TV. (This is a custom add so no pictures)

In the rear is a bedroom that will be replaced with a lounge with two sofas, big screen TV and audio system and other goodies.

View down hallway…

Final product including a paint job which will turn heads along many interstates this summer.
