2nd Asia Paintball Invitational Tournament 2009 Day -1

One more day before flying to Taiwan... and again a surprise visit by Ken Tsuda from Oakland Blast... just like before... The last time when Ken was in town, he gave us pointers on how to play the bunkers by taking one step back from the bunker that you are in so as to have a wider angle during offensive shooting. Well....Ken is in town again but because he is flying off to the Philippines the next day, we did not arrange for any quick bite or coffee with him. But nevertheless, Ken's visit was just so timely... just in time to catch up with him and checking with him on the pro league before leaving for Taiwan.

Ken brought a surprise for Jane. He brought her a customized Oakland Blast paintball jersey with her name on it. If you dont know what this means... it means Jane got herself a FREE pro jersey. and the significance of this is that pro paintball teams do not make customized jerseys for players who are not related to the team, not even when you are ready to pay for it. According to Ken, this is the first time that the team has done this from someone outside the team. Only paintball divas get these customized made jerseys and they are made for promotional purposes. He brought in a few other jerseys too...one of Jason's, Kenny's and Luke's and get them all signed. The Red Sevens team will wear the Oakland Blast Jersey during one of our games in Taiwan to thank Ken for his wonderful gesture and to help promote Oakland Blast to the Taiwanese teams.

What a Blast!
