O6 NWPS season finally kicks off, though its a month early
article by Young Choi
Once again, the NWPS started it's season at the TPS Paintball in Elma, Washington. The event was held on three air ball fields with netting in between the fields so that the poor freezing parents and friends could watch the action. As luck would have it, the weather was clear with temperatures just above freezing but none of the rain that Washington state is known for.
Cold weather and all, many of the teams seemed glad to be competing again as many were smiling and joking with each other before the event started. Wise cracks about the temperature seemed to be the topic of the morning.
PMI supplied their Polar Ice and Evil paint for this event. As you can imagine, many of the teams opted for the Polar Ice due to it's cold resistant use properties. Many of the experienced teams stored their paint in heated running cars and seemed to have little problem shooting the paint while those that left their paint out to the cold temperature were granted sub-par performance. Lesson here, if it is cold store your paint in a warm place. It was very obvious to see on the field which of the teams took care of their paint cuz the ones that didn't were constantly squeegeeing through out the day.
