The 3rd round of the Adventure Paintball Novice series was held on the weekend. We also had the ABC TV come out and film some interviews and plenty of the action. RA’s resident paintball devotee, Blame Monkey, will no doubt star in any resulting images as he is far from being a shrinking violet when the camera starts rolling! Although IMHO he has a better head for radio than TV ;). Hopefully the footage will pop up as a news item in the next few weeks.
In the end, Novice new comers “BAM!” showed that a complete lack of team work and nil preparation are not handicaps by taking out the day in convincing style over the well drilled and well rehearsed “Nightstalkers”. Other newcomers “Lambs” filled the minor placings. Regulars “Frentic” and “Free Boobs” played as 3 man teams against the novice 5 man teams and were soundly beaten proving that skill and grace are not sufficient against superior numbers and dumb luck! “Free Boobs” distinguished themselves by not troubling the scorers for the entire day.
The day went really well with refereeing provided by Sydney Pro Team “Apocalypse” with support from some of the local Adventure staff.
The next tournament will be held on 3 Jun with the same 5 man Novice format.
