Paintball Festival and Conference

Just wanted to give you a heads up on this event, going on in August this year at Three Rivers Paintball near Pittsburgh, PA.
It is a 3 day event, the first day consisting of an industry conference on Friday with some great speakers and education on how to run a paintball related business with a lot networking opportunities.
The second 2 days are a wild west scenario by Mission Masters, "Guns & Gold". Also a 10 man UWL event. There will also be the "KT Challenge" being hosted by Kingman with a chance to win some cash prizes. Saturday night there is also a players party with a lot of fun stuff after the scenario and woodsball tournament.

Also, Greg Hastings and Tom Kaye are to be in attendance, along with Tom Cole.

Here is a video of Debra Dion Krischke summarizing the conference and festival;

And here is a link to the official press release.

All in all, it should be a great weekend! I'll be there, working with Mission Masters to produce the scenario. Although I wont be playing, it would be great to see MCB'ers come and experience a lot of the fun!

Yes and no. It is trying to get the industry leaders to get together again to help each other. But the overall event is being scaled back to make it more sustainable and capable of continuing on a yearly basis. The way I've heard it, the IAO just became too big and when interest dropped, the event died.

Debra (the Three Rivers Paintball owner and IAO organizer) and Tom Kaye go way back.
