The first ever CFOA (Carolina Field Owners Association) paintball tournament to be held in Virginia was recently hosted by Tiger Paintball in Rocky Mount.
The CFOA, a traveling competitive paintball tournament series, is the largest regional series in the Southeast. Players in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia participate.
Called the CFOA Moonshine Masters, 21 teams came to Rocky Mount to compete on Tiger Paintball field on Route 40 East (behind Tiger Rents).
Competition included 3-Man, 5-Man, and X-Ball formats.
Two local teams, Tiger Paintball's Ambush and Ambush Black, took home honors.
Ambush took first place in the D4 Hybrid Division, which is the highest level of local competition. Shaun Rinn of Franklin County was the MVP.
Ambush Black took second place in the D5 Division. Tom Fong Jr., captain of the D5 squad, was the MVP runner-up.
"CFOA would like to thank Tiger Paintball and their staff for their hospitality and making us feel welcomed. Thank you to the refs and staff for a great job," said Brian Radford, CFOA event coordinator.
"Congratulations to both Tiger teams," said Tiger Paintball owner Josh Trelease. "But you don't need to be a tournament player to enjoy this sport. You can play here with any skill level."
The Tiger Paintball field is open every other Sunday. Equipment rentals are available.
