Getting ready for Paintball Super Cup 2016

After months of preparation we are at the verge of the 4th annual Paintball Supercup 2016.
I would like to start by saying thank you to Vanessa Schmidt and Leonard Nel that assisted during the year with all the pre-arrangements and making sure that this event adhere to all the regulations and statutes set out by government for sporting events. This is definitely no easy task from getting approvals from police, the municipality, the venue to organizing security, waste management, public liability and medical services. Various meetings was attended during the year to make sure all areas are covered to the best of our abilities. All the meetings, plans and paperwork that must be handed in for an event like this to happen is insane.

International Referees attending Paintball Super Cup 2015

We are excited to confirm that CJ Traub will be attending the Paintball Super Cup 2015 and will be heading up the referee team with the assistance of David Baker.

CJ started playing paintball consistently in early 2001 and in 2003 began reffing national events with Compete paintball. He attended World Cup at Wide World of Sports at the end of that season and at the beginning of 2004 was asked up to the NXL field. He reffed there until 2007 and participated in the Smart Parts World Championships with that crew as well. Since then have reffed or worked with many leagues including the NPPL, NEXL/NEPL, GPL, USPA, PSP, and currently the NXL where he is the head ref on the main field.

We are excited to have two international, experienced referees as part of the SA referee crew at Paintball Super Cup 2015 and believe this will enhance the level and experience at the event as well as reffing at future events as well with experienced gained by our local referees.
