NEW CPX SPORTS 2-DAY SCENARIO GAME HONORS "LIVING LEGENDS" OF PAINTBALL
JOLIET, IL - JANUARY 21, 2008 - CPX Sports and Smart Parts have teamed up with Scenario Paintball creator Wayne Dollack and long-time friend Kerry "Viper" Rosenberry to produce a 24-hr Scenario Game honoring the "Living Legends" of Paintball on April 5-6, 2008 at CPX Sports in Joliet, IL.
The game's concept was conceived by elements from both CPX Sports and Smart Parts in an effort to bring Paintball's Living Legends together for a weekend of fun and festivities. The game will also provide amateur and recreational players with a once in a lifetime opportunity to play alongside the pioneers of paintball and the young rock stars of today's game. Game-play is being created by the Godfather of Scenario Paintball and Living Legend, Wayne Dollack. Another Living Legend, Kerry "Viper" Rosenberry, will be handling the codebooks for the commanders, the mission outline, calling of the missions to the bases, and keeping score for the 2-day event. The game will pit DXS/DraXxuS Senior Vice President and industry heavyweight, Craig Miller, as General, versus Sean Scott of Smart Parts/Smart Corps fame as the opposing General. Free basic rental equipment will be made available to paid, pre-registered players as part of the “Bring a 1st Timer” promotion courtesy of Tippmann and CPX Sports while supplies last.
"We had been discussing doing an event at CPX Sports since our visit to the field back in June, and solidified the concept of Living Legends while in Orlando at World Cup" said Sean Scott from Smart Parts. "CPX Sports itself is a legendary field and its Midwest location makes it an ideal venue for such an event," said Scott. "An event like this is long overdue," said Living Legend Craig Miller. "It's rare for those of us in the industry to get together with others who helped form the sport, let alone all be in the same place at the same time. To get together and play with all the big names from Paintball's past and present is unheard of. This really is going to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone who attends the game," concluded Miller. Kerry "Viper " Rosenberry adds, "With the popularity of Scenario Paintball, there are many event promoters whose aggressive tactics have them intentionally conflicting with others. I feel that two of the nation's first Scenario directors working together on one great event sends a message that it is time for promoters to work together in the interest of the players".
The Living Legends game is being held on April 5-6, 2008 at CPX Sports. Pre-registration admission is $40 and includes 1 complimentary unlimited air-fill pass. Pre-registered players can pre-purchase cases of event paint for $75, day-of cost is $80. Pre-registration deadline ends March 24th. CPX will have free camping available beginning Friday, April 4th. CPX Sports is a 143-acre, $6.5M paintball park located in the Chicago suburb of Joliet, IL and is widely regarded as one of the nation's premier facilities. The field is conveniently located less than 1-hour from both O'Hare and Midway airports.
