SPPLAT plans big game with William Shatner
by Bill Mills
22 October 2001

The Society of Paintball Players And Teams is planning its first SPPLAT event.  Scheduled for the summer of 2002 at Chicago's Challenge Park Xtreme, this themed big game will raise money for charity.

What will set this event apart from others is who is playing.  One of the teams will be captained by one of the most famous science fiction captains ever - William Shatner, Captain Kirk of the Star Trek television series and films.  The exact name and theme of the game has not yet been set.  SPPLAT is presently in negotiation with Paramount to be able to use the Star Trek name and theme.  It is hoped that some additional Star Trek cast members will be able to make an appearance, and join in the paintball action.

The game is being planned to be a unique experience both for paintball players, and the many science fiction fans to whom the event will be promoted.  SPPLAT hopes to introduce these scifi fans to the sport of paintball.  

Included with the entry fee will be a commemorative jersey (each team will be identified by jersey).  The entry fee of $150, or $100 for SPPLAT members is designed to encourage SPPLAT membership (the annual fee of $35 will make it cheaper to join and play than to play without being a member).

A percentage of each entry fee will go to Shatner's selected charity, Ahead With Horses.  This group uses horse riding and training as both physical and emotional therapy for the physically handicapped, and SPPLAT expects to raise over $100,000 for the cause.

As the event draws near, further information will be available in the Recreational department of and at
