NASHVILLE, TN: June 14, 2000: The 10th Anniversary Five Man Challenge, sponsored by National Paintball Supply, NJ and the fourth stop on The 2000 ZAP Tour ended Sunday, June 11 with Team Gridlock from New Jersey taking 1st place in the Amateur Class and Next level of New York winning the Novice/Rookie Class competitions. Team Tempest, from New York, won the coveted WPF Sportsmanship Award in yet another successful World Paintball Federation tournament.

Top Gun Paintball, with owner Ray Gong and manager Glenn Guadagnini,
hosted this event and provided a challenging speedball and hyper-ball field on
which teams competed in temperatures that reached into the high 90's. The
New York Dogs, a WPF member team, provided the finest staff of trained
referees available and set a new standard in refereeing excellence.

"Al Penino and the New York Dogs proved to be the finest refereeing squad
we have ever experienced. The professionalism and diplomacy they exhibited
exceeded our expectations and raised the standard, once more, for all
paintball tournaments," says Chip Herbert, operations director for the
WPF. "These men endured dangerous heat conditions that would have crippled most squads. With determination and professionalism, the " Dogs " produced the finest refereeing I have ever seen."

Working within the computerized, state-of-the-art WPF/ ZAP Administration
Trailer, the staff of the WPF and Steve Moore of ZAP Paintballs worked
hand-in-hand with Gino Postorivo of National Paintball Supply, NJ to
ensure the safety and enjoyment of this tournament in the extreme weather
