Airgun Designs Warps the CFOA!
Lexington, North Carolina
May 22, 2003
The Carolina Field Owners Association tournament series presented by National Paintball Supply, the largest paintball league in the Mid-Atlantic region and one of the largest regional paintball leagues in the United States, announced today that legendary paintball gun and product manufacturer Airgun Designs has signed on as a sponsor of the CFOA for the remainder of the 2003 season. Airgun Designs has agreed to provide the CFOA with five Warp Feed systems to be awarded as prizes at each of 2003's remaining events.
"Tom Kaye and Airgun Designs are responsible for some of the most important innovations in the sport of paintball and for them to grace our banner with their name is a prodigious honor," Sponsorship Liaison and Advisory Board member Josh Silverman stated after the agreement was reached. After several seasons of incredible growth, 2003 has become the banner year for the Carolina Field Owners Association. Having started in 1998 with barely more than a dozen teams per event, the CFOA recently drew ninety (90) five-man teams to Paintball Central to compete for cash and prizes across rookie, novice and amateur divisions. The CFOA hosts eight tournament dates per season at fields in North and South Carolina, drawing teams from North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, West Virginia and even New Jersey. Legendary for its stiff competition and as a breeding ground for some of the best players and teams in the world, teams like National XBall League franchise Trauma got their start in the CFOA, and professional players like Trauma's David Wooten began their competitive paintball careers at CFOA events. Sponsors of the CFOA include presenting sponsor National Paintball Supply, official field sponsor Ultimate Air Ball, Xtreme Sports Fulfillment, Powerlyte, Airgun Designs, Kalibur, Extreme Rage, the Matrix Center (dot

Airgun Designs has been involved in the sport of paintball since the nineteen eighties, and has been producing innovative products since their very first day in the game. Airgun Designs helped move competitive paintball to compressed air and invented the blow forward paintball gun and the power feed, and has since revolutionized the concept of the paintball product owners group with Automags.org, the official Automag owners group with over twelve
thousand members. The Automag, Airgun Designs' legendary tournament paintball gun, once ruled the tournament scene in the hands of teams like the All Americans, Bad Company and the Palm Beach Predators, and with current innovations such as the Level Ten mechanical anti-chop system and the Ultra Light Engineering line of lightweight, highly advanced Automag products such as aluminum ULE bodies and the X-Valve, AGD is returning the Automag to
the highest levels of competition in the hands of the winners of Skyball Six, AGD Pride. Airgun Designs can be found online at www.automags.org and www.airgun.com.
