Finally! Got the chance to go inside the new Canada Winter Games center. This facility will be hosting the 2011 Canada Winter Games gymnatics during the end of February.

Track of Field Open event had many schools from X to Dalhousie to Capers and the runners of Halifax. They had Long jump, 60m-1500m Races. Very interesting event and can’t wait to come back to this facility.

Wednesday Night Spirit

January 28th, 2011 / 10:44pm

Well to say the least, it was loud.
St.FX maybe a small school (4500 students or so) but we are proud when it comes to team spirit.
The CBU vs X games for basketball has to be about the most entertaining game for the atmosphere of the games. The game play shows how much the player want to win, as well shows how much school spirit is here at out school.
We had 2 great games, however both ended with a lost.
A double overtime ending with 98-101 for the Capers
And a 58-72 win for a capers.

Remote Shooting

January 10th, 2011 / 3:24pm

Well this 2011 season should get a little more fun and challenging. Learning new techniques and learning what other higher up in the field are doing has been an interest of mine. However finally being able to act out what they do is even better.

This season we are trying out remote shooting. With the help of Jay Mcneil for the Pocketwizards help. I plan to finally start seeing what interesting angles can be had at a game and give off a new spin on the game.

At the moment i’m starting with Basketball. Simply due to my understanding of this sport i know where i can mount a camera with 1) not being yelled at by the officials and 2) that it won’t get destroyed by a player/ball

So for those’s wondering what have used today was: 7D, canon 15mm f/2.8 FE, Pocketwizards, Manfrotto Magic Arm, Super clamp and my canon cps strap. As well to remove the glare from the backboard from shooting through glass i’ve used a back printed peice of paper and tapped it just under the lens

Backside Image of the setup

Front side image of the camera

Now the images that we got from this setup are seen below

Here’s an original right out of the camera

Now there’s a few fault from this setup as you can see. 1) the focus is the biggest issue. Having the camera setup on MF and guessing the focal distance is difficult (well for me) so with some practice i hope to get this nailed down. I had an aperture of 3.5, i’ll probably up this to 4.5-5.6 next time just to have the focus abit more.

2nd is that the angle is a bit odd. Since it was the first attempt, i will be probably putting the camera just above the shooting box rather than off to the side.

The other misc. issues are that the arm if put at a 90 degree angle it seems to slip a alittle maybe the camera shots become garbage. domain archive So having the strap abit holding some weight enable the camera not to fall as well, not to fall on the people if for whatever reason the arm gave out.

We will retry and follow up with this next weekend at the next basketball game.

Next sports to try Volleyball and Hockey.

Halifax City Open 2010

September 27th, 2010 / 8:23pm

The gallery of Halifax City Open is Here —> Gallery

Finally returning home after a long day at Halifax City Open 2010 tournament. How do I quantify if it was a success? Could it be by the 26 registered teams?Could it be by the amount of free gear and prize given away? Or simply by the amount of competition that was seen on the field?

I have done this tournament for 2 years, and I have to say after the 3 years it been going on, it only becomes better. Our host Kevin Curry (BigCan as everyone knows him) strives to amaze the maritime paintball community by bringing all the competition together with no politics.

However, let’s just get into the action. The teams in 5man were fierce with the top competitors of Strict Union (CXBL 3rd place in Eastern) competing against the ECU team of  APBL players and the Maniacs team of the AXBL. I want to say competition was tight. But it was more than that. The final game of Maniacs vs. Strict was the decider for first place. Strict Union’s Jeremie Pagé running to get the flag allowed them to steal the points needed to claim the first place victory. domain info . domain owner Really it was only a mire 10-20points different for the first place in 5man.

While the top Atlantic competitors played in the 5man, the real competition was in the 3open and the future player in the 3man rookie division. With both division filled, there was no easy victory here. Just to give a feeling, a rookie that played speedball once, came in with a 2nd place in Rookie.

The 3man open came in like an AK sounding Ego, loud and fast. With competitors destroying each other up-close and personal, or by the 5 second games of getting all bodies off the break.

The best surprise of the day came from Halifax City United (CXBL Eastern team) gave away the last jersey to Will Jones the MVP of the day who played in the Rookie division.


I have to say I will continue to support this great event. It makes every paintballer come and play for the love of the game and not fighting over the small things. Which from day 1 is why I loved to do photos of this sport.

Our Winners:

1st place 5man –

1st place 3man Open –

1st place 3man Rookie –
