AUCTION OF NEL-SPOT 007 (Used in First Paintball Game Ever Played)

The auction will take place at the LIVING LEGENDS III GAME on

SATURDAY EVENING, MAY 29, 2010 at 6:45 pm

PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT BOB GURNSEY,
Creator of the Game of Paintball,
in his fight against cancer.

Those who are unable to be at the event and want to bid, may do so via telephone. I would have to be informed of those that with to bid by phone by 5:00 pm Eastern Time on May 24, 2010.

I will bring the marker to the game, and for a donation, players will be able to take their pictures holding it.

Paintballers have been terrific in their response to Bob's challenges. This is going to be a memorable event for a number of reasons, and major among them is what we, as a community, are doing to help our game's founder.

Count me in for a picture, I will never be able to bid at the auction, but I have donated to this awesome man for inventing something that is so dear to my heart.

Lets help him out all, now

I won't be at LL3, but I just donated. You won't find a more worthy cause than this, if you're a 'baller.

You should push the auction back 45 minutes Jerry. Right now it coincides with the Saturday big game. If it was at 6:45 PM it would be during the dinner break.

Schedule is up here:

Bartman,

I have not, as yet, been informed of where the auction will be held, but it will be on site and begin at 6:45 pm.

You should be prepared to take the pictures using your camera (cell phone to professional equipment).

Update,

The Jersey Titans Paintball Team were at the Clone Army Scenario Game at my field today, and they generously donated, in cash $108 for Bob. I'll bring it to LLG III along with the Nel-Spot.

I never ceased to be amazed at the generosity and humanity of paintball players.

We did win. It was pretty Epic. PBNation and the generosity of its membership never ceases to amaze me on how much they not only love the sport but its people. Kudos to you all.

I believe it went for $8465 and some change.

The PbNation community bought it and it will be displayed at EMR's paintball museum.

People were flooding Blue's hat with donations while the auction took place, as well as a good amount of donations after the auction.
