Top South African and international teams will be competing for the 2012 Africa Cup title being held on December 1st and 2nd at the Blades and Triggers Paintball Range in Boksburg. This is the biggest speedball tournament in South Africa and is the final event of the season for the Gauteng Professional Paintball League (GPPL).

For more information, you can contact: philip@sasp-paintball.co.za The Los Angeles Times reported that four Inland Empire men were charged with plotting to join Al Qaeda and threatening to commit “violent jihad” against Americans. The FBI indicated that these four trained at Southern California paintball courses and shooting ranges. A complaint unsealed Monday in U.S. District Court in Riverside detailed some of the specifics of the plot which resulted in the arrests of the four men. So, stay sharp out there, weíre still at war. Wayne’s World Grand Finale is upon us this weekend, Dec 1st and 2nd. This annual epic event is set to be a great one. Teams from all over the country come to Florida at this time of year to say that theyíve played in one of Wayneís events. This year’s event is centered around Atlantis. Here is a bit of the storyline. “Once every 640,000 years, the sun lines up with the center of our Milky Way galaxy on the winter solstice, the sun’s lowest point in the horizon. The next time that will happen is on December 21, 2012; which happens to be the same day the Mayan calendar expires. This “galactic alignment” creates earthquakes, super-volcanoes, and other drastic upheavals. Out of the ashes of the chaos that follows, like a phoenix from the fire, emerge the Illuminati who regard themselves to be descendants of the inhabitants of the lost continent of Atlantis, who have been taught the “Ancient Wisdom”. The objective of the Illuminati is to place these descendants of their sacred bloodline as the leaders of their New World Order. And so this Grand Finale between good and evil begins.” For more information, contact Wayne Dollack at 352-401-1801 or e-mail him at wd24hour@atlantic.net This week, our tour of YouTube brings us two viewer submitted channels and one of my own favorites. First up, we have SwinglepbProductions which is produced by budding filmmaker Clay Swingle. So, check his channel out because some day he hopes to be attending UCF to study videography and film. So, you never know whatís going to happen. Next up, we feature the viewer submitted channel of minitechpb. I admit I was doubtful when I first saw the name, but the channel producer’s definitely are putting up some quality content and have established a good viewership. So, I guess TechPB is inspiring a new generation of channels. And now for my pick of the week, which of course, is Sticktodrum. My good friend Mario aka Sticktodrum and his friend Manny are perhaps the only satirists in paintball. That’s satirist, not Satanist, so Google that up. He also provides some of the most critical reviews of paintball gear and beer. Not always in that order. So, if you have a half a brain and a good sense of humor, sub his channel for some fun. [Music] Hi guys. Youíre here at the Exalt booth at 2012 World Cup. And you’ve got Social Paintball here so we’re just going to do a little run through our booth. Exalt’s wall for the TRX cleats. Weíve got them here. We’ve got the two types of spikes. You’ve got the turf spike. You’ve got the mud spike. So, depending on what you play on, youíre going to switch those out. We do the hater gun graffiti bands now. We’ve got the tank grips. One size fits all. It doesn’t matter what size tank you’ve got. They’re going to fit it. We’ve got the tank covers which are size specific so if you’ve got a smaller tank, the 48’s the 45, the fiber tanks, you’re going to want a small. If you’ve got the 60’s, the 70’s, you’re going to be good for a medium. You’ve got all the colors there. We’ve had speed feeds for quite some time now. We’ve been, kind of a, that’s one of our staple products as well. We’ve got all the colors up here for the Prophecy, the Rotor, the Universals. Barrel Maid’s a pretty new release for us. You can see here we’ve got four colors. We’ve actually got all of the available too. And if you want to just zoom in here, Iíll show you how this works. So, on one end we’ve got our buffer, the swab end. It’s actually sewn together here so it’s not going to unravel on you. The other cool thing is it’s, it is foldable, and it’s got a swab and a squeegee end. The way this works is, if you’re shooting in a game and you have a barrel break, you just insert this little tip in your barrel, at the rock of this squeegee here, it shrinks up so itís going to pass all the paint and then expands out when you pull it out of your barrel. Itís going to bring all of the paint out of your barrel so youíre going to get a squeegee and a swab in one. When you’ve got more time, you can obviously use the swab end to give you a nice polished finish in there. Of course weíve got regulator grips, headbands, we’ve got our Throw Back Pants, we’ve got our Tournament Thrasher Pants. Also, if you’re at World Cup, we’ve got a new release. We’ve got team microfibers and player microfibers. These are dual sided. Full color graphics on the other side. We can do custom printing on these. If youíre cleaning your lens, you want to use the gray side first. Itís going to absorb all the paint, and then polish it off with the graphics side. The team ones here are nice and big and they come with these carabiner clips. Clip them into your pits and staging area, anything like that, and then when you get off, you just walk into them and clean your mask, using both sides. Thanks for watching the 2012 World Cup booth and thanks for Social Paintball for filming this. Terrific. You want a bag? Naw, it’s alright. I appreciate it guys. Thank you. [Laughter] Hey cool.
