  1. So anyways, the new 7 man league out in California now has a name: The US Paintball League, or USPL.
  2. Yes, that was an indignant screech you heard from NH: http://68caliber.wordpress.com/2009/01/17/history-in-the-making-or-history-repeating/
  3. But anyhow, the US Paintball League, or USPL has confirmed all of their 2009 season dates: http://thefordreport.com/2009/01/22/uspl-2009-season-confirmed-dates/

  8. I sent out a special invitation to apply for PaintClub yesterday on the TFR mailing list for our friends in the industry. The response was energetic, to say the least. When Paul Richards comments on something non-tournament related on his site, that says something.
  9. And to answer a question that cropped up, there will be a separate tent with male dancers for the ladies out there who want to attend. No, I will not be one of the male dancers for the ladies. Some things can’t be unseen.
  10. E-Money is giving away two entries into his teleseminar “Recession Proof Your Field” to the first two field ops that email me. It’s not everyday that E gives away $250, so hop to it!
  11. SPO Gear’s new Versa Shell will be on display at the Macdev, USA booth at the Paintball Extravaganza, February 5th-7th, in Atlanta. These are the ready for market units and we’ll be taking orders for mid-February delivery. For those of you who missed its World Cup debut, the innovative Versa Shell retro-fits the internals of the Reloader B, Halo B, Vlocity, Vlocity Jr and the Empire Magna loader. It holds 200 plus paint balls and has the super fast one-touch “bump” lid, snap in/out top lid assembly, larger filler opening, reinforced feed neck, relocated and reinforced battery cover and an optional snap in/out tournament adapter feed system with replaceable fingers. The best part for you dealers is you only need stock one universal shell instead of three individualreplacement shells. (Halo, Vlocity and Magna). Come by and say hello to the designer, SPOGear’s Ken Akins and bring your check book. Check out the video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MqEq1aQb2bM.
