So a brilliant warm up to the season, with a good showing of teams from around the county, we would like to especially thanks the teams who came along to support our event, without you we would not exist, it was difficult to pull together enough teams this time, but we still persisted and managed to get all of the local teams involved.
Congratulations to our winners!
1st Snatch 2nd Sneaky Snorkels 3rd Almost Karma
Here are some photos of the day!
Thanks again to the boys from Reading Entity who Marshalled for us again, as always we had a fair and well run day.
Don’t forget the next Cribbs cup is on the 3rd of May -See you there!
A massive thank you to the boys from Reading Entity who Marshalled for us yesterday, and also Gareth Davies and Max Byng for also helping Referee the Cribbs cup at Cribbs Pro Paintball Centre
We could not have run such a great event without you guys, I think everyone will agree that they were fair, yet reasonably lenient to help new teams get to grips with the rules and the format.
Its great that their enthusiasm and passion for the game really reflects in their refereeing, and we are proud to have them as our home team!
Dave Philips as Ultimate Ref

Cribbs Pro Paintball Centre is excited to announce the “Cribbs Cup” our new Sup’Air Tournament for 2014!
Perfect for a Pre-Season warm up! and also great for Cross over teams who are new to Sup’Air.
We will be closely following the standard Millennium rules so that all teams get a taster of what to expect at a standard Millennium tournament and the CPPS/Midland Masters Tournaments in the UK.
Hopefully if this mini tournament goes well then we may look at doing a second towards the end of the year, so it keeps all of the teams and players fresh for the next season.
We will be looking at doing 2 divisions, 5 man and 3 man, this is a tournament as a pre season refresher and also to help new teams get into the game, there will be the “Cribbs Cup” up for grabs, and also other trophies and paintballs up for grabs!
*******5 MAN DIVISION******
We will be running a 5 man Division for those who have already played tournament paintball, or those who want to try out the the proper Sup’Air tournament format. We will only be having 1 division in the 5 man, so you could be playing some experienced teams, or some quite novice teams.
Its always a great way to gauge what level your team is playing at – as well as getting to play against teams you might not normally get a chance to! – which will hopefully up your game for the coming paintball season! It
******** 3 MAN DIVISION*******
The 3 man event will be for scratch teams, or newbies, you will all need your own equipment, but if you cant find anyone to play with then we can always match you up with some other players to form a 3 man scratch team.
This event is great for individuals as we are accepting individual payments, which includes entry and a box of paintballs, so you can try out tournament style paintball, without all the hassle of team entries etc.
We are really looking forward to introducing new teams into the sport, and it could be great for those who haven’t played in a while to get back into it!
We would like to thank all those at the Christmas walk-on for their kind donations to the raffle. We hope you enjoy the prizes! Also a huge thank you to Enola Gaye, Kee Action Sports, BZ Paintball, and Bluewater Paintball/ Valken, there is plenty of love in the paintball industry, this proves it!
We raised a massive £353.48 forPaintballers 4 Kidswhich is a new charity initiative all about raising money throughout the paintball world for 5 regional children’s charities. As we are in the West region, our donation has been added to Scott Rathbones charity “LATCH Welsh children’s cancer charity” which is a fantastic cause im sure you will agree!

From all the staff at Skirmish Bristol, we would like to say a massive thank you to the players that came along and made “Sands of Time III” an unforgettable event.
This by far has been the best event we have ever held, and you guys made it a fun, clean and friendly gunfight. Im sure those of you that made it will agree that the atmosphere was buzzing throughout the day, and there was plenty of banter, laughs and twists in the game scenario to keep thing interesting.
A few thank you’s….
