Tag And Brag 2010-Write up and results

2010 Tag and Brag champions crowned

 It has been a long road and hard work for many involved to deliver the 2010 edition of Tag and Brag that was held on 25 and 26 September but we can safely say that the tournament at the Blades and Triggers field was a success. And what a success it was. We played some serious speedball on the day and all around the teams fought hard in their games. What was even better than the paintball that was being displayed on the field was the atmosphere next to the field. The spirit between teams was so refreshing, the help and advice that some of the 5-man teams offered to the 3-man teams is growing the sport and the support of the spectators was great. All in all the speedball community took a step in the right direction and that is one of the most important positives that came out of the event.

 We also had the privilege of hosting Team Dynasty from the USA for this tournament. They came down to SA with Yosh Rau, Billy Bernacchia, Alex Fraige and Ryan Greenspan to participate in the tournament. The SASP ran a competition that offered two individuals the opportunity to complete the Dynasty team that would participate in the 5-man event. The winners of this competition were Jerome Jansen van Vuuren and Gerhard Smit. Having chatted to them I realised is that an experience like that is hard to put in words but that they regard this as one of those “Once in a lifetime” events and that will cherish those memories for many years to come. Even to everyone else the Dynasty guys were amazing .They were super friendly to everyone, very accessible (it was very easy to chill with them and chat to them), only too happy to give the players some signatures. All around really amazing guys and many people will remember them long for that and cannot wait to see them again.

The games will be played over 3 amazing field at the Blades and Triggers paintball field in Johannesburg. The layouts for the division will be announced closer to the time but the layout for the 5-man GPPL divisions will most likely be based off one of the Millennium fields, which one will be announce much closer to the time.

The rules for the 5-man GPPL divisions will be the same as the Millennium rule set. The rules for the 3-man are in the process of being updated and the new rules for the 3-man SASP divisions will be announced in the coming weeks.

3-man

The 3-man side of the tournament is back, by popular demand, and will see 2 divisions, namely SASP 3-man Elite and SASP 3-man Play. We see the 3-man aspect of paintball being the source of growth for the sport and will be a critical part of the overall tournament.

The SASP 3-man Elite division is "by invite only" and invites will go to the top 3 ranking teams in various 3-man leagues from around the country as follows:

  • SARPL 3-man                            -- 3 spots
  • Paintball City 3-man                   -- 3 spots
  • KPPL 3-man                              -- 2 Spots
  • SPL                                           -- 2 Spots
  • Epic Paintball (Bloem)                -- 1 Spot
  • Cape Town (to be confirmed)     -- 1 Spot

This is going to pit the best versus best in 3-man from all around the country. The best part is that there is NO ENTRY FEE that these teams have to pay and even better, the prizes are awesome.

The leagues themselves will be announcing how they will allocate the spots and who gets to participate. So start bugging them to find out who gets to go.
