Ok, so I lied that Operation Citadel was our next game. Its actually our next traditional and larger big game, but not the next one. Operation Gratitude is the next game, and takes place on the 29th of July. Whats more important than this being a paintball game is that its proceeds will be put towards sending care packages and individually addressed letters to service members deployed in hostile regions, such as Afganistan and Iraq. Below is information directly from our (I work there now to those interested) website. If you want more information, feel free to ask.
The Blast Camp Paintball Field is Holding a Benefit Game on July 29, 2007. All Entry Fees Will be Donated to “Operation Gratitude:” The Grass Roots Organization That Sends Care Packages to our Troops Overseas.
On Sunday July 29, 2007, all are welcome to have a BLAST supporting their troops at the Blast Camp paintball field. Entry for the event is $20.00 per player. These entry fees will be donated to “Operation Gratitude.”
Operation Gratitude is the all-volunteer organization that sends care packages and individually addressed letters to service members deployed in hostile regions. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude has shipped more than 211,000 care packages to American troops. The items within the packages are donated, but the postage must be covered through monetary donations. Each package costs between $10 and $15 to ship. For 2007, Operation Gratitude plans to mail more than 100,000 care packages. The cost for the postage alone is an estimated 1.1 million dollars.
In 2003, Blast Camp donated $1,700.00 to the USO for “Operation Care Package.” We would like to double that donation with our 2007 benefit game.
