The final meeting will be the SARPL Super Cup (Nationals) from 5 to 8 December 2013 at Lake Gariep. This event will have teams representing all the provinces across South Africa. Players from Valkyrie contacted (SARPL) with a very special request before the SARPL Free State 3-man Event 1. Graeme Victor (8 years old) loves paintball, but has cancer and from what we understood is on some of the strongest chemo therapy.

With the support of Paintball City, HK Army and SARPL decided to do something super special for this little fighter on event day. Paintball City sponsored Graeme a Tippman Gryphon paintball kit to help him experience what he loves. The SARPL sponsored him a SARPL T-Shirt that was printed with his name on the back done by the guys from Valkyrie and HK Army gave him a cap for some protection against the sun and just purely to look cool. We would like to give a special thanks to everyone involved who helped to make this happen. We wish Graeme all the best and pray for a complete recovery as he battles daily with the challenges in his life.
