DASH will be a Vendor at Skirmish, USA’s Invasion of Normandy 2012 Big Game Event on July 13,14,15

This year, we are proud to announce that we will be attending the Invasion of Normandy event at Skirmish, USA in Albrightsville, PA on July 13, 14 &15. Usually, we attend ION as players. I have been to 9 IONs and 16 games at Skirmish, including big games and tournaments. The field is unparalleled. It has 700+ acres of paintball heaven including dozens (like 40ish) individual playing fields.

ION is one of the most amazing games to attend. It is flat out unreal. The beach assault is vicious, the tanks and Battleship NJ are sweet, and the game is very well run. Add a little historical accuracy and ~5000 players, and you have one serious scenario game.

We will be bringing our collection of used and vintage paintball markers, including a vast array of autocockers, automags, and many many pump markers. We will also have pump accessories to make the markers tick, like those hard to find 1 inch elbows, 50 round hoppers, 12g holders and harnesses, etc. We are also always ready to tech your mechanical and pump markers. Any 16 year old can drop a board into your marker, but not everybody out there can perfectly time your autococker.

If you need any particular items for the event, please let us know ahead of time. If you have any questions about attending ION, please stop by the shop, we can walk you through everything you need to know so you can have a good time playing paintball.


It should also be noted that the store will be closed during the dates of the event.

Skirmish USA Fall 5 man Woodsball Tournament November 6th, 2011

On November 6th, Skirmish USA is hosting their Fall 5-Man Woodsball Tournament. The tournament will be 2 flag (one for each base/hq) with 12 minute games. $99 a team entry with First Place Prize of $1000 in Cash or Silver Bullion. There are plaques and stuff for the first and second losers I’m sure.

The regular Skirmish rate of $74.00 per case of paint does apply, however :(

Now, paint cost and quality (6/10 at best) considered, I think I am well within my rights to say that Skirmish is one of the best, if not THE BEST, paintball fields in the country. I haven’t played at them all, but I have played at dozens of different fields along the east coast. Skirmish si the biggest, with the least brush, the most bunkers, the biggest and sturdiest structures. It is constantly worked on, constantly expanding, and it sits on 750 acres so they have tons of space.

New England Paintball League NEPL Tournament Series


Please note that there is a 3 man and a  pump division. DASH will offer 1 day of free coaching for any of our customers that sign up for these young gun/beginner divisions. We have no affiliation with the NEPL so there will be no conflict of interest. We are doing this because we have experienced the fun of the NEPL 3 man division.

Please note: we will not be attending the August event as it conflicts with the  PSI Black Market War game
