MAPL TO OFFER PUMP DIVISION AT 2013 STAR SPANGLED OPEN!

Mid-Atlantic Paintball League to add pump division for July competition at OXCC Paintball!

Chesapeake City, Maryland – After two successful tournaments woven between world-class professional events at OXCC Paintball, the Mid-Atlantic Paintball League is preparing for the third event of their 2013 season by adding a pump division! After receiving several inquiries from players throughout the Mid-Atlantic region about the possibility of offering a pump play at MAPL events, league promotion staff, including owner Rick Carver, Promoter Larry Motes, Logistics Director Jennifer Silverman and Marketing Director Joshua D. Silverman consulted with industry representatives and found ample support and excitement for such a division, culminating in the decision to offer it immediately! The MAPL Star Spangled Open, to be promoted July 13 and 14 at OXCC Paintball, will offer three-man and five-man divisional RaceTo paintball, as well as an open-class, three-man RaceTo pump division!

In addition to D4/5 three-man and five-man RaceTo divisional competitions already offered by the Mid-Atlantic Paintball League, the 2013 MAPL Star Spangled Open will include an open-class, three-man pump division! Intended to provide another option for current and new MAPL customers to enjoy competitive paintball, the open pump division offered by the MAPL at the Star Spangled Open will feature an affordable entry of only $100 per team and a generous prize package, soon to be announced, provided by generous industry supporters! Companies already aboard to support the pump division at the Star Spangled Open include Deadlywind and Pinokio. Deadlywind manufactures high-tech carbon fiber barrels that provide versatility, accuracy and light weight, traits critical for pump paintball success, while Pinokio produces some of the lightest, fastest and most reliable hoppers available.

“We are thrilled to offer a pump division at the Star Spangled Open,” said MAPL Marketing Director Joshua D. Silverman. “We want our valued customers, and indeed the entire industry, to know that we love paintball, not just one particular type or style of play. As the MAPL grows, we aim to welcome as many styles of paintball to our league as possible and we fully recognize that ramping markers and fast-paced RaceTo competition may not be for everyone. Pump paintball offers strategy, movement, exhilaration and challenges like nothing else and does it with minimal paint output, making it ideal for players on tighter budgets, those who may not fit the profile of a young, athletic tournament competitor or those who simply love to put one well-aimed paintball into someone else’s goggles!”

The MAPL (Mid-Atlantic Paintball League), the Mid-Atlantic region’s premier divisional paintball tournament series, promotes RaceTo three-man and five-man paintball tournaments at OXCC Paintball Park in Chesapeake City, Maryland, home of the PSP Mid-Atlantic Open and NPPL Northeast Open. With an experienced event staff, world-class referees, a pro-level venue and a remarkable prize package at every event, the MAPL is dedicated to the teams and players who are the league’s valued customers. The MAPL gratefully acknowledges its sponsors for the 2013 season: Valken Paintball, Bob Long Technologies, Planet Eclipse, Exalt, Virtue, Crossfire, Raza, PaintballX3 Magazine and the newest companies to join the MAPL family, Deadlywind and Pinokio!

.... There's more support for your pump division then your higher division 5 man? I sense a issue in the force . Soon everyone will be forced to move up in division then there won't be anymore side stepping competition and playing d4/5

Maybe the issue is getting more D2/D3 teams to come out and play and not worrying about the D4/D5 teams moving up.

Agreed, More effort should be put into getting the current divisions running consistently ad fawlessly before bringing on a three pump divisions. maybe one pump division but MAPL still has a division that never runs (D2/D3) and all of those people that want to make the move to that division from (D4/D5) cant because there is no effort to making it grow or attract other teams.

We will work around any scheduling difficulties, so yes you can play the pump division as well as the regular 3Man.

No that isn't the case at all. The necessary fixes for the upper division in 5Man will come during the off-season. The fix isn't something that can be thrown in mid-season, but trust that it has been identified and planned for. If I could have fixed it mid-season (and know that I wanted to badly) it would have been implemented for the Chesapeake City Classic.

Well well well...

Not gonna lie - the gold brick that I would poop if Pricedollaz was to, in-fact show up at an MAPL event would be sizeable.
