DYE's newest divisional team, Vintage out of St. Paul, Minnesota, recently made the trip down to Fort Wayne, Indiana to compete in the Paintball Plex’s 3-Player Division-3 tournament. Twenty teams battled it out on Sunday, January 22nd for a chance to win thousands of dollars in prizes and bragging rights to start the season off as the team to beat in the highly-competitive Midwest divisional scene.
Vintage team members Dustin Richards, Nick Spatola, and Gunther Stumpf loaded up their M2 MOSAir markers, R2’s, and i5’s to make the 9 hour long-haul down from St. Paul, Minnesota to compete in the team’s first event of the season. The team quickly rolled through prelims and seized the number one overall seed headed into the finals, a round-robin style format between the four remaining teams. Team Vintage would drop 2 of 3 extremely close games in the finals to end up in 4th place by a very thin margin.
Aaron Tholey, Coach and Owner/Operator of Vintage Paintball Park & Store, had this to say:
“We couldn’t be happier to announce our partnership with DYE, for years in my professional career I used a DYE barrel to compete at the highest level. I’ve always been an advocate for their products. DYE’s commitment to technology between the MOSAir Circuitboard, e.VOKE system, and Cable-Free-Charging have put their products a step above other manufacturers. We know every time that we step on the field our M2’s are perfectly dialed in through the MOS’s real-time pressure sensors, our R2 loaders won’t jam, and the i5 goggles won’t fog. It gives us the confidence to focus on our game. We’re thrilled to be a part of the DYE family!”
