Team Pr1me hosted the 4th event of the ACES (Alabama Challenge Event Series) on August 21st. This was the first event ever held at the Farm and proved that it would not be the last. Players were greeted with beautiful blue skies, mild heat compared to days prior and a cool summer breeze. The paintball gods shined on the Farm by holding off any potential threat of rain that had drenched the field just a day before.
All logistics were put into place to make this a fine event. Nets added, the famous turf prepped thoroughly, picnic tables, sun shades, paint ordered, refs briefed, and team PR1ME's sponsors came up HUGE allowing players to battle for cash and gear including Alien gun bags and Exalt apparel!
11 teams, 3 of which came over from our sister state of Mississippi, vied for the first place spot. The event was reffed by members of Team Pr1me. Special thanks to our old friend Tyler Jasper from the Red NRG days for jumping in and helping officiate. Photography was once again supplied by our good friend Michael Day (www.michael-day.net). Several players even tried out the 2011 Alien Independence and many were surprised by the performance!
A couple members of team Avarice made it out.

Hide Yo Kids took 6th placing Phantom Regiment Gambit in 5th. One Asian Crew took the Warped Kidz making the Kidz 4th and the Crew 3rd. The first place prize came down to a battle between the Anacondas and Chris Isn’t Paying For This. In the end, The Anacondas squeezed out Chris Isn’t Paying For This to take home the first place prize. Special Thanks to Exalt and Alien for sweetening the prize packages. Two companies that are truly on the rise!
Second Place: Chris Isn't Paying For This
Fourth Place: Warped Kidz out of MS
All in all, it was a great day of paintball. PR1ME would like to thank all the teams for participating in our first event and making it a success.
Hope we see everyone at the final stage of the ACES series October 2nd @ Advantage Paintball in Cullman, AL to decide series winners! We’d like everyone to join the Pr1me crew out at the Farm for the final installment of the 3man series Nov. 6th. Might be the last opportunity to play competitive ball in Alabama!
