St. Paul, Oregon â€“ The games are still two months away, but preparation is already underway for SuperGame 43, to be held at SniperzDen Paintball Park May 4 to May 6, 2012. After reaching record numbers in 2011 for both attendance and money raised for charity, event promoter Dan Bonebrake has announced further expansion of the three day event.
Attendance is expected to exceed previous numbers, drawing over 1,000 players and families per day to the events and attracting the participation of more vendors and event sponsors than ever before. The continued expansion of Vendor Village will continue to provide players an opportunity to connect face to face with representatives of their favorite paintball companies, and help to promote the growth of the sport in the northwest region.
Registration is already open for weekend passes to SuperGame 43 including the ability to register for individual events held over the course of the 3-days, such as the increasingly popular 3-Player Pump tournament which drew a wide variety of teams from across the country last year. The SuperGame again seeks to appeal to families and newcomers to the sport by including clinics, camping, a three day raffle with prizes valued at more than $25,000, a swap meet, shopping and other off-field attractions.
Proceeds from the sale of tickets for the Bryce Hotchkiss Memorial Raffle will again be donated to local charity. Last year, more than $6,000 was donated to support local non-profit organizations and the growth of the event means it is likely that the 2011 record for charity donations will once again be broken. Prizes for the raffle are provided through generous donations from SuperGame event sponsors, and range from individual paintball markers and equipment to gift certificates for services and shopping.
Since itâ€™s inception in 1986, the SuperGame series has grown to become what is unquestionably the largest Big Game event of the Pacific Northwest. This springâ€™s event is staying true to its format of focusing on fun, entertainment and safety for players and families of all ages and experience levels.
SuperGame 43 will be held May 4 to 6, 2012. For more information on attending or sponsoring the event, please go to the event website at supergame.tv.
