Going to JB - MPOC Final Leg
« on: October 23, 2008, 01:39:48 AM »
For everyone's info, I will be heading off to Johor Bahru tomorrow night (Thursday 23 Oct) to participate in final leg of the Malaysian Paintball Official Circuit (MPOC) which is gonna be on the 24th & 25th Oct at Dataran JB field.

The MPOC is basically the one of the two Malaysian leagues for paintball. The other one is My-NPL...the Malaysia National Paintball League.

What's the difference? Basically rules & regulations...but yg paling ketara...MPOC brings a lot more challenge while the My-NPL has a lot more glamour...

So, simply put I & a few more guys would be representing the state of Sabah, as well as the West Coast Paintball Sports Association of Sabah, our newly approved & registered official paintball association.

We would be sending in 3 teams (consisting of 5-men in each team).

The teams are:

1. Jesselton NXS (pronounced as 'nexus'...the team I'll be playing in)
2. Team Infinity
3. Team 3Nity

This would be my 2nd paintball tournament outing & the first for some of the other guys.

This participation, although already the final leg, is to gain more experience as we plan to join the World Cup Asia (WCA) tournament in KL on the 14-16 Nov (kalau boleh cukup recover finances utk budget) & to participate in all of the MPOC's 5 legs for 2009. 

Below are some pics taken during our training in preparation for the tournament.

I'll keep you guys posted on our progress & hopefully with more pics!  :D

Wokeyy gengs! Aku baru sampai KK from JB pagi semlm selepas bertempur utk 2 hari berturut-turut.

It was a very greuling & tough 2 days of competitive paintball. We faced some very good teams in Division 3.

Our overall performance was good considering that many of the players we brought along were rookies to competitive paintball tournaments.

On Day 1 of the tournament in the prelimenary round, all 3 teams from Sabah qualified for the 2nd Round of the tournament, which meant that we had to play another round of 3 games on Day 2.

But, it was not to be on Day 2 playing the 2nd Round games as we all crashed & could not qualify for the Q-finals.

Many things were learnt & more experience was gained during our outing in JB. Hopefully next year in the 2009 MPOC we'll be attending more legs & attempt for a better showing.

Pics would be up within a few days...

News article about the tournament, tapi ndada si big-manc kena interview, anyway, snippets di bawah, full article here.

Building character via paintball

GETTING a few bruises did not stop Khaisha Khalid and her team mates from joining in a competition that is dominated by men.

The 26-year-old student said that playing paintball had helped toughen her to face challenges.

Her team Bellicose was the only female team at the Malaysian Paintball Open Circuit in Johor Baru which ended its fifth and final leg recently.

“It is the second time we participated in the competition and I think it was our best performance.

“I am proud of the girls for beating male teams to finish at fourth spot,” she said, adding that she had been involved in the game for the past two years.

Yup...memang kami plan mau pegi compete di World Cup Asia (WCA) 2008 this 13 to16 November di Xtion Paintball Park, Bukit Jalil.

We are still awaiting news & follow-ups from sponsors that we have written to bcos this tournament agak mahal cost dia berbanding dgn MPOC.

At this stage belum ada apa-apa berita dari potential sponsors. Kami suda bayar registration fees USD200 (RM700) to play in Div.3 tapi, kalau teda apa-apa dari sponsors, we just might have to pull out (with a heavy heart) & postpone our challenge to next year.  :(

Bukan apa...it costs quit a lot to compete.

During our recent competition to JB, each of us had to fork out at least RM1,500 per person to cover for air fare, accommodation, & pellets. Itu belum masuk makan minum lagi...spare parts for equipment repairs...so on & so on.

So, just imagine that amount...multiply by 7 players...  :O Itu baru MPOC...

Hopefully kami dapat berita baik la within the next few days la...

Other than that kami pun sekarang drawing plans to compete in all 5 legs of next year's MPOC & the WCA. So we starting our planning early & are working hard now to identify potential sponsors for next year.
