Big Game, Feb 12, Jungle Island, Lake Elsinore, CA



First Big Game of the year at Jungle Island Paintball Park in Lake Elsinore, CA

$25 entry
$10 all day air
BYOP but paint is also available at the field.

To my paintball friends: For those of you that live in the Southern California area, I'm sure you have all heard about the tragedy that has struck the paintball world. Mage from the SouthWest Regulators was attacked in his own home by a knife wielding suspect who also attacked his daughter and her boyfriend. Sadly, the daughter did not survive her wounds.

Here is the first report:
MURRIETA: Triple stabbing leaves 1 dead, 2 wounded | Breaking News | PE.com - Press-Enterprise

Here is the updated report:
MURRIETA: Mother describes daughter’s slaying, suspect’s background | Breaking News | PE.com - Press-Enterprise

But thankfully they caught the suspect:
MURRIETA: Stabbing suspect held without bail | Breaking News | PE.com - Press-Enterprise

I actually want to thank ZenMic, who is also a teammate of Mage and Deelux on the Regulators and Ralph "Tazz" Gonzales, of Bandit Splat Paintball, for starting with the idea of a fundraising event.

When I heard the news from Mic about Mage, I had a sense of helplessness, because although I don't know Mage and his family personally, they are still family in a paintballing sense. Then Mic relayed that Ralph wanted to do a fundraising type of event, but the reality is that the incident happened during the Christmas season, people have finances tied up or are out of town and not able to participate. I figured that since there is a Big Game scheduled on Feb 12 locally, it would be a good time to do something like this where everyone is back and is ready to help out and even play a little paintball to vent frustrations and stress.

The SouthWest Regulators have established a memorial website for Saskia Burke in which you can sign in at the guestbook and there is a paypal link for those that want to send a monetary donation to help the family.

Remember Saskia

Also, I have contacted the man that runs the Big Game and he has agreed to help. Instead of just a regular raffle at the end of the day, it will be a fundraising raffle and all the money from the raffle sales will go to Mage's family. In turn, I have sent a private messages to local paintball friends and teams to see if they can donate to the raffle in one form or another and so far I have gotten a lot of replies in which they will help out as much as they can. However, with the huge amount of support that individuals, teams and even companies that have pledged to donate to the fundraising raffle, it would be best to not only raffle items at the end of the up coming Big Game, but to continue to raffle the donated items at other local events as well, with permission from the owners/producers of the event.

In addition, we felt that it would be best to hand over the responsibility to someone that is close to the Burke family and is also on the same paintball team.

I have talked to Gary Dunham a.k.a. DeeLux, XO of the Southwest Regs and a fellow OSF, and he has agreed to take over responsibility. He has known the Burke family a long time and it is his honor to take charge of the overwhelming responsibility.

For those local teams that are wanting to turn in items for donation at the Big Game or have asked your sponsors for items, please consider this: instead of donating an item, a monetary donation in the name of your team and/or sponsor would be much more helpful and appreciated.

If it is convenient for you, your team and/or your sponsors, you can donate that money on the memorial website: Remember Saskia You can use Paypal direct or also use credit cards as well. If you feel the need to use check, money order or cashier’s check, please email Gary at [email protected] on who to make the check to.

For those that are still willing to donate items to be raffled off, Gary is requesting a list of those items, so that he may have a positive control of what is being donated. Please email Gary at [email protected] the list of donated items. Gary will outline what and how the donated items will be raffled off as well as showing who has donated on the memorial page.

Thank you for your continued support and we hope to see you at the Big Game.

Gadget.

ok added the flyer to the first post.

Come on out and bring new players to this event. Nothing complicated, just a good old time. Also, the raffle at the end of the day is going to a good cause.

Hey everyone, the memorial game is now 2 weeks away and I want to remind everyone that if you, your team and/or sponsors are going to be donated for the raffle at the memorial game, please contact Gary Dunham, aka Deelux at [email protected] and let him know that you will be bringing items to the game. Email him an itemized list so that he can know what to expect that is coming for the game. Please forward this to everyone that is involved and hope to see you at the game!

FYI, there is a memorial for Saskia at 1pm on Saturday at Murrieta Valley High School. If you are in the area, you are more than welcome to attend.

Here is the link: Celebration of Life Planned for MVHS Senior Saskia Burke - Murrieta, CA Patch
