in the history of paintball.
Hosted by Nashville Paintball Sports, the 17th Annual Music City Open
welcomed almost 50 teams from across the U.S.A. into this 5-player,
all-concept field tournament. The freezing temperatures proved no match
teams competing for over $40,000 in cash and prizes from A.C.I., ZAP
Paintball, W.G.P, and Scott U.S.A. A.C.I.'s Greg and Jeanette
title sponsors for this event, were on hand to provide technical support
over $20,000 in prizes and sponsorships for the teams. ZAP Paintball's
Pfaff was also present to guarantee every case of ZAP Performance Plus
paintballs sold, and to present the over 70 cases over Performance
paintballs to outstanding teams.
Under the direction of WPF Ultimate and Director of Referees, Bill Bryant,
the WPF, once again, provided participants with the finest judging
available. "The WPF has built a first class reputation by providing
best judges possible for every event," says Chip Herbert, WPF Operations
Director. " We train our referees to be professional, helpful, and
supportive to our teams; however, we demand enforcement of the all safety
and game rules. Our supporters expect this."
By winning the amateur class competition, O.B.R. took home $5000 cash
plus medals and trophies. Outbreak and Total Grief both received 5
Air Systems, 5 sets of Raven goggles, 5 cases of ZAP Performance Plus
paintballs, with medals and trophies for placing first in the novice
and rookie class competitions, respectively. Chain Reaction received 60
cases of ZAP Performance Plus paintballs, 5 ZAP team jerseys, as well as
5 custom barrels from C.P.I. as winners of the WPF Sportsmanship award.
