The Largest Iberian Recball Event 2012



THE LARGEST IBERIAN RECBALL EVENT

The Paintugal - Portuguese Association of Recreational Paintball - APD, celebrates its 8th anniversary by organizing a European Paintball event, on the 29th and 30th of September 2012, in the municipality of Proença-a-Nova, where 500 participants are expected from around the country and abroad, they can rely on two days full of activities, games, conviviality and many surprises.

We do not just organize a game of Paintball. We have created a Festival of this sport, with extra activities, players party, raffle prizes, workshops, and local tourism to boost a very attractive weekend, unique in Europe, with the support of the municipality of Proença-a-Nova.

This event is inserted in the Big Game Alliance, which is the result of the Union of the biggest and best Paintball events organisers in Europe, Warped (Great Britain), Veckring (France), and Paintugal (Portugal).

Under the Paintugal ecological and social responsibility project for 2012, the Association will offer a tree to each participant, so that they plant it on the ground of the event, and also, give the opportunity to sponsor and help multiple children of the Association "Acreditar", so that they enjoy a different day and especially with Paintball activities, thereby supporting the Association "Acreditar" in its noble purpose: "to treat the child with cancer and not only cancer in the children!".

With registrations open and already underway from June 4th until the 21st of September 2012, we will reveal several surprises, as well launching a set of contests in which the winners will be rewarded, pay attention to the official website of the event:

Charity Auction (s) for 20th Anniversary Markers


As part of the Eclipse 20th Anniversary celebrations, we asked the paintball community to nominate their favourite UK and USA based charities so that we could auction two sets of 20th Anniversary Marker sets  in a bid to give something back.

Well, the nominated Charities have finally gotten back to us with their preferred method of fundraising and it seems both charities would like us to auction the goods then donate the cash direct to them. Just to re-cap, the chosen charities were ‘Help for Heroes’ in the UK and the the USA charity, USO Wounded Warriors.

‘Help for Heroes’
http://www.helpforheroes.org.uk/donations.html
"It’s about the 'blokes', our men and women of the Armed Forces. It’s about Derek, a rugby player who has lost both his legs, it’s about Carl whose jaw is wired up so he has been drinking through a straw. It’s about Richard who was handed a mobile phone as he lay on the stretcher so he could say goodbye to his wife. It’s about Ben, it’s about Steven and Andy and Mark, it’s about them all. They are just blokes but they are our blokes; they are our heroes. We want to help our heroes."

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Planet-Eclipse-20th-Anniversary-Marker-Set-1-of-20-pairs-/261069310449?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc8f189f1


‘USO Wounded Warriors’
https://www.uso.org/donate/
USO Warrior and Family Care is a comprehensive long-term program that supports the continuum of care that helps provide wounded, ill or injured warriors with the hope and confidence to sustain their journey towards a full and rewarding life. The program presents the best opportunity for our heroes to heal with honor. It also supports the troops' families and caregivers throughout the recovery process, as well as giving assistance to families of the fallen. Additionally, the USO is raising funds for USO Centers that conduct these programs while spotlighting issues. Our new public service announcement, "USO Invisible Wounds," is an example of these efforts.


We will be posting two sets of these 20th Anniversary beauties on Ebay, one after the other, so if you are interested and want to help a great cause then get bidding! Planet Eclipse will cover the shipping. Once the final amount has hit our Paypal account (less the ebay and Paypal fee’s) then we will raise a cheque to  the Charities.

1.    The ‘Help for Heroes Auction’ will begin on Saturday 21st July at…

Manchester Firm - Open Day

 
The Manchester Firm Open Day
28th & 29th of July
In Assocation with
Planet Eclipse
Emipre Paintball

Come try out the new Planet Eclipse Geo3 plus the new Z2 Prophecy loader and the new Pro flex goggle systems also the new empire air systems, All the Kit what the kit that The Manchester Firm uses

On the 28th and 29th of July. The Manchester Firm, will be holding an open weekend.

The weekend will be a clinic on the saturday to get to know you all a little bit better an help you redefine the skills you need to compete at a top level. Running through the drills we do week in week out , how to prepare physically and mentally for a tournament, tips and one to one coaching.

Come Sunday after a hard days work we will running a race to 2 xball tournament with in-depth analysis on how to define every aspect of your game. This will be a weekend of no messing around paintball and to see who can step it up to that next level. Single players will be placed into a team on arrival.


In line with this it will also be a weekend of scouting for myself and the team if we can see talent and the drive to take your paintball to the next level this is your perfect opportunity that should not be shrugged away.

We train hard and if you have the aptitude to learn, training with us will improve your game quicker than you think. The results are plain to see in both the CPPS domestic events and the Millennium European Series that we take part in.

Our squad is broken down as follows:

The Manchester Firm (SPL)
last year we gained promotion to the Millennium Series Semi-Professional League after gaining 3 first places during the season, we are potentially looking to add additional talented players to this team. Looking to keep up the record in the SPL

The Manchester Firm EDS (Elite development squad)
Training regularly with the SPL team, the EDS squad is for players with a good amount of experience who want to up their game. This team has gained a string of 1st places in the CPPS open X-Ball and vastly improved over the Millennium season.


The Firm Academy


Aimed towards younger or players quite newto the sport. This team will train with the SPL and EDS teams on a regular basis and will be a fast track way to work on and improve your skills.

Our current Academy team has seen several players progress onto the EDS team in a very short space of time.

This team will take part in the CPPS 5 man series as well as the U.K. leg of the Millennium Series.

We like to take a slightly more laid back approach with this team as many of the younger players are not able to afford to train as much or have other commitments such as school or college. You can train as much or as little as you like (to a point of course), the choice is yours.

The SPL and EDS teams train at least twice a month but usually more and the whole squad is supported by the excellent equipment provided by Planet Eclipse and Kee Action Sports as well as top quality paint from Empire.

The weekend is about just playing, meeting the current team and learning some skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. Whether you want to attend either one of the two days or both, it is entirely up to you.

    The cost will be:
    1 Day £15
    2 Days £25

You can bring your own paint or buy good quality paint from us for the price of £25.50 or 2 boxes for £47.50.

If you don’t have your own set up or would like to bring a friend who has never played before then let us know we can supply all of the kit for you and you can try the new products.

If you want to book in just email themanchesterfirm@googlemail.com or send a PM on facebook all enquiries for joining the team will be kept in the strictest confidence so please don’t be worried about contacting us if you are already on another roster.


    The weekend will be held at the home of the CPPS in Staffordshire.


    The address is

    National Paintball Centre
    Penkridge
    ST19 5PH
    United Kingdom


Please also remember, this is not just a straight forward trial. This is the chance to come and learn some new skills and improve yourself as a player and have a day of fought out xball.

    Please feel free to ask any questions, we look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Don't waste this opportunity

    The Manchester Firm.

Why yes, we will have another one......


With one half the 2012 season over and in the books…it’s time to recap!

Game #1 was at Bearclaw Paintball in Fayetteville Tennessee, this MPP produced game is our current annual opener and we love this field and producer. Though we lost we did walk away with a General’s Special Service Award. Now if you haven’t played Bearclaw, you are missing out on one this country’s best paintball fields. So get on out there and have some fun!


Game #2 was at Poco Loco paintball outside of Philadelphia Pennsylvania. This event, produced by TSSOC, their only production in 2012, did not let anyone down…the weather was beautiful and the game was balanced. With our sister team Joint Fury and our combined forces known as the ‘Unholy Alliance’, we did all we could in a losing effort. Joint Fury walked away with a MVP award and Pub Crawling left with another MoFo (most formidable opponent) award. This field is also worth playing at least once in anyone’s paintball career.


Game #3 was at Paintball Charleston, in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. This game was a rubber match between 2 generals, each having won a game in the previous 2 match-ups. Ironically, Pub Crawling played for the winning general in the previous games. So, for this game we held a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup eating contest to determine which general we would play for in the rubber match. This game was awesome, and produced by our favorite production company (MPP)…and left everyone feeling great. And yes, we, again, played for the winning side. This is another field that all ‘real’ paintballers should hit up at least once before they hang up their guns.


Game #4 was the monstrosity that is EMR Paintball Park’s 2x a year CASTLE CONQUEST. Enough said. If you haven’t played EMR you must be a rookie. Get out there and try your hand at a legendary game at a legendary field.


Game #5 was our first trip to OXCC paintball in Maryland. By all reports the game was great and the field was even better. Without a doubt we will be returning to play this field and it’s immaculate layout and landscaping. At the end of the day, the opposing general noted that, “Pub Crawling is crazy”, and awarded us the MoFo award. The MoFo award, as I’ve noted before is our favorite award as it is recognition from the other side.



So, that’s what we’ve been up to….but that’s just the beginning. You see, the second half of the 2012 season will see us travel to new fields (to us) in Indiana, New York, Europe, and return trips to fields in New Hampshire and South Carolina….and we might add a game in there somewhere else…you never know with us. So, until then…make sure the beer’s cold and the whisky’s old.
