Asia Paintball Invitational Tournament (APIT) 2009

Its confirmed! This event will be held from 16 - 19 July 09 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Last year, when Red Sevens attended this tournament, we were told that it was a prelude event to the World Games in which paintball would be considered as demo-game for this year's World Games event. And so... when we heard the news that the APIT will be organized again, we were thrilled... With the start of the World Games 2009 on 16 July 09, the Kaohsiung city will be flooded with athletes from around the world making this event even more significant than last year's. When we received the invitation to participate in April this year, we were pretty skeptical that this event will not pull through but we were proven wrong. It seems like the Kaohsiung city committee like what they saw last year.

So, yes... Red Sevens will be attending this year's APIT again. I am sure we will see the likes of Infernal from Thailand and KU from Japan who were there last year. Adding to the list of the participating teams, could be Ironmen from US and Incarnate from Canada. S+S which is our favourite team from Taiwan could well be representing Taiwan for this tournament too. Taiwan is special to the Red Sevens, we spent a good time in Taiwan last year, met a lot of people, made a lot of friends, eat a lot of good food (fish sperms) and this is what paintball is all about. Fun and meeting new people everytime you go for a tournament.

So Kaohsiung, here we come...
