Just the opening minutes of this event are well worth the trip to Invasion Of Normandy.  SKIRMISH USA is a classic.  An Historical member of paintball field “royalty”.
Odds are your first experience in this sport happened at Skirmish, if you live in the North East.  I, for one, love to get my fight on here.

Oh yeah, it’s the seventh iteration of Living Legends, at the world famous Challenge Park Extreme in Joliet, IL.  This event is all about OLD SCHOOL, mixed with new school.  This event has attracted many players and notable industry people who have had a very positive influence in driving our sport, from way back heroes like Bud Orr, to my old team mate Pete “Mr. U” Utschig, to Tha Wolf, as well as, Mike Phillips and Kitty Wandel, who are some of today’s positive forces in paintball.

Predators Win 2013 ATWL Championship

Paintballers will swear up and down that big paintball games always seem to coincide with the most inclement of weather. The paintball gods do however listen to player's pleas for leniency from time to time. Proof of this came recently when the remnants of hurricane Gabriel that the Canadian Hurricane Centre had predicted to hit Nova Scotia, moved further west then forecast narrowing missing the province.

Woodsballers from across the region were happy to play the Tippmann X7 Phenom Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League Championship, at Mersey Road Paintball in East River, Nova Scotia on September 14, 2013 under cloudy skies and gentle breezes rather then 100kp/h winds and torrential rains.

The season long battle for woodsball supremacy came down to a showdown between two veteran teams, the Mersey Road Predators and the Nova Scotia Mercenaries.

Both the Mercenaries and Predators have won the ATWL title in the past. The experienced players on each team know exactly what it takes to repeat as champion. The look of steely determination in the eyes of players as they took the field gave an indication of how exciting the paintball championship would be.

From the opening horn the ATWL championship final was a pitched battle. Neither team was willing back down nor show weakness to the other. The teams rushed forward to the capture points under a hail of paintballs. The intensity of play increased as the game wore on. The veteran players saved their best paintball for the championship while the young guns tried even harder to out play the 'old guys'.

The final horn sounded and the players gathered eagerly awaiting the announcement of the official scores and reviewing the prize table. The table generously packed with items from Tippmann, PBL, NXe, and GI Sportz, plus gold, silver and bronze medals, and of course the one thing all the players want to get their hand on - the ATWL cup.

The officials met and when the final scores were tabulated it was the Mersey Road Predators who conquered all to win the Atlantic Tactical Woodsball League championship for the second time in three years.

"The team played great today, they saved the best for last." said Derrick Keeler of the Predators "Early in the season we had our issues on the field, but everyone stepped up their game and came together when it counted. It feels incredible to be on top again after the disappointment last season."

The outstanding sportsmanship and skill shown on the field by all the teams and the players of the ATWL has shown that competitive woodsball is alive and well in Eastern Canada.

The league would like to thank Tippmann Sports and BuyPBL for their outstanding support of the league. Without the support of these paintball industry leaders the ATWL would not be possible. The league would also like to thank Mersey Road Paintball and Hypersportz Paintball for use of their outstanding facilities this season.

If all goes well the ATWL will be expanding to play an event at Spikes Paintball, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for an event in 2014. There are still many details to iron out but if all goes as planned next season each one of the three events will be played in a different province. For the first time in league history the ATWL will be a truly regional league for the Maritimes and Maritime players.
