Christian Paintball Tournament

For anyone who would like to attend (we already have out-of-state teams signed up)

We will be having a "John 3:16", non-profit, Christian paintball (speedball) tournament at Southern Extreme Paintball on August the 16th in Prattville, AL. Everyone is invited, regardless of religious beliefs. The only pre-requisite is that every player or team must represent a church.

This Tournament is being held for the unveiling of the first in a series of Christian paintballs, John 3:16. The paintball’s shell is red to symbolize the “Blood of Jesus Christ” with a brilliant green fill to symbolize the “Eternal Life” that he paid for. John 3:16 is printed on the face of the ball.

The tournament will be a five-man event with two age group categories, 10 through 15 and 16 and above. There will be cash purse prizes awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams of each category. The individual team members will receive a small portion of the cash purse with the remainder being donated in the players name’s to the church of their representation. Each organization may have as many team or player representations as they wish.

The pre-entry fee will be $25 per person, with a “day-of” entry fee (dependent on available slots) of $ 30 per player. Entry fee includes free air fills. This event is FPO. Paint cost is $45 per case of 2000. Paintballs may be shared amongst team members.

The tentative hours of the tournament are; from 8am to 7pm with a 1-hour intermission from 12:30 to 1:30. During this recess, we will have Christian guest speakers.

We encourage each player and guest to wear clothing representing their church or organization. This is not just a paintball tournament, it is a "Celebration of Our Lord"! If you or anyone that you know would be interested in either participating, becoming a guest speaker or simply making a donation, please have them give me contact me by e-mail at jbrooks@thezone-paintball.com

We are asking that anyone who wishes to participate to RSVP as soon as possible so that we can have the proper amount of supplies available.

Slots are filling up fast. If you are interested in attending, please contact me ASAP.

We have a few teams that are in need of extra players. If you would like to fill one of these slots, let us know.

Thank you for your time and God Bless! Hope to see you there!!

Hotel Info

For those of you that have already registered or plan to register,

I have worked out some *discounts with 2 hotels. The addresses say Millbrook, but they are still part of Prattville. The Hotels are side-by-side with a Chevron service station in between. They are located immidietly off of the interstate. I feel that these would be the best choice for you guys for both price and location. There is also a Super 8 up the road a bit. I will list their # as well.

When making reservations at the first two, reference the “Paintball Tournament”. Also, make your reservations as soon as possible. This is a major route to the beaches and these places fill up fast!

There is a Bass Pro Shop, Target, Wal-Mart, Malls, theatre and numerous fast food and restaurants located at the exit of the first 2 hotels. Gas stations, Waffle House, Wendy’s and Cracker Barrel at the Super 8. These Exits are about 2-3 miles apart.

*Country Inn & Suites (inside rooms)
2329 Cobbs Ford Rd.
Millbrook, AL 36054
(334) 495-3000
$72 + Tax for King or Double room.
Great Hot Breakfast! (Biscuit, Sausage, Eggs....)


*Key West Inn (Outside Access Room)
2275 Cobbs Ford Rd.
Millbrook, AL 36054
(334) 290-1696
$64.95 + Tax = Double Room
$54.95 + Tax = King Room
Waffle, Cereal, Fruit and Pastries for breakfast


Super 8 Motel
639 Malwest Dr.
Prattville, AL 36066
(334) 365-7250
Not sure about breakfast

Yes, you can. I would not mind at all. The advertisement says "regardless of religious beliefs. But, because this is a Christian Tournament, you have to list a "Christian church" as a prize recipient if you should win, or you can waiver your prize to the other two placement teams.

I'm sorry, but these are the rules. We are not trying to be disrespectful or discriminating. This is a Christian Non-Profit Paintball Tournament. I hope that you will join us!

I don't think that we could host a NPPL event on them, but they ok.

Just so you know, this is not being sponsored by a church. It's just a Christian tournament. There will be a lot of churches at the event though.

Notice

This is a NOTICE to everyone that is planning to or would like to participate in this tournament.

We have had a whole lot of teams say that they are going to be there at the tournament, but as of now only a few have paid. Because the tournament is next week and we need a little more finalization so that we can make the proper arrangements, we have made a decision to cap the number of team at 20. The first 20 to pay will play.

Call me direct at 334-303-4732 or e-mail me at jbrooks@thezone-paintball.com so that I can get you the Pre-registration and Waiver forms. The deadline is Monday, August 7th at 7:00 pm.

Thanks and God Bless!
