With the WPF's ultimate referee Bill
Bryant leading the way, X-treme paintball also fielded 3 teams of referees that proved to be exceptional. 

" The 2000 Tippmann Five Man Challenge represents a new level of success and professionalism in the development of paintball tournaments," states Chip Herbert, operations director for the WPF. " The WPF-trained referee staff for this tournament set a standard of quality that will become the norm
for all WPF events. I am proud to have worked with such a fine group of people; and, we look forward to working with Sal and his staff again."
