Monday, March 21, 2011 was a sad day for the family of MSG William S. Pitts. MSG Pitts' was a Soldier in the Oregon Army National Guard, stationed in Arlington, VA, while working at the National Guard Bureau. He is survived by his three children, Tonnie, Crystal, Scotty and wife, Vicki. Scotty and Crystal are both reserve members on Strike Recon and Scotty is the leader of the Young Guns squad of Strike Recon. Scotty and Crystal are both a part of Strike Recon paintball team, which is based out of Northern Virginia and have been playing as avidly as possible for the last two years. MSG Pitts was also an honorary member of the team and played on occasion. He always made sure that when Scotty and Crystal were able to go to the field, they were there on time with the required gear.
Phoenix Paintball Productions is currently trying to find a field to host a game for charity in order to raise some money for the children of MSG Pitts. As a paintballer, friend and fellow Soldier, MSG Pitts will be missed, but never forgotten. Even if you do not want to attend the game, please keep the family in your prayers and thoughts.
This game will be hosted on May 21st, at a location TBD
. All proceeds will be going to the children of MSG Pitts. Please come out and support this event! It means a lot to Scotty and Crystal that paintballer's are willing to support them through this time of grief.
The backstory and sides to choose from will be posted on the website later this weekend or early next week. Donations will also be taken at the event and any profit made by Phoenix Paintball Productions will be given to the fund as well.
Possible choices of fields:
Hogback Mountain - Leesburg, VA
Southern Maryland Paintball - Newburg, MD
Robin Hood Paintball - Aberdeen, MD
Warplay - Locust Grove, VA
THE LOCATION IS STILL UP IN THE AIR! IF ANYONE KNOWS A FIELD THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO HOST THE GAME FOR CHARITY, PLEASE CONTACT [email protected]
