No rain in sight for the Vegas event, and believe it or not, as hot as Vegas can be, the weather was bearable, bringing in the highest temperature of the weekend in the high 80s and a low in the mid 60s. Those teams scheduled in the morning may have had to get up before sunrise, but playing in cooler temperatures is always better than playing in what can sometimes be a scorching Vegas heat. Registration was held inside the Riviera’s air conditioned hotel and casino and many of the event’s teams stayed at the hotel for a small price of just around $70 a night. Three paintball fields, all with the same layout, were placed on turf atop the Riviera’s parking lot. Parking was available for free in covered self-parking garages, which gave players extra money to spend during their time in fun-filled Las Vegas. Games on all fields began as early as 7AM during the prelims, and every field started on time.

In Division 1, TCP Machine took home the D1 Championship. TCP Machine had a 2nd place finish at the previously held DC Challenge. In 2nd place, Texas Storm came ahead of 3rd place finishers Camp Pendleton Raiders and 4th place team, Joint Force.
