Wasaga Beach honors memory of fallen player


by Christine Brownridge

        Paintball teams from Central Ontario gathered at Wasaga Beach
Paintball Adventure on August 13th in memory of Jeff Stillin.  A year ago,
Stillin, a 25 year old, Sudbury Regional Police Officer, came to Wasaga
Paintball for a speedball tournament.  After one five minute game he collapsed on the ground.  He had died of ventricular fibrillation.
        The Jeff Stillin Memorial Charity Event had 17, four-man
teams come from as far away as Sault-Ste-Marie and as close to home as Wasaga Beach. The fast action, 4 minute games were played in a round robin tournament format with a minimum of 7 games being played by each team.
        Dave Stillin, Jeff's father, after saying a few words about Jeff and giving
thanks to friends, new and old,  presented Valerie Holland-Smith from
the Heart & Stroke Foundation with over $6000 that was raised that day.
"We are very pleased and not surprised at the generosity of these people.
Jeff loved the game of paintball and many people thought highly of Jeff so
this is a great way for them to honour his memory.  Everyone had a lot of
fun in the process too", commented Donna Langman, co-organizer of the event. Many of the staff were volunteer.  The day was hot and long yet close
friends of Jeff's came first thing in the morning to do whatever job was
assigned to them.  Prizes were donated for the top three teams from Zap and
trophies and medallions were also donated by Sparta Trophies.  The winning team, called Bob Lung's Ironmen, from the London area, generously donated their prizes back to the event.  Donations were also made by players and
spectators as well as a cheque from Express Paintball Supply in London who were unable to make it to the event.
        "It has been a hard year for me.  I want to thank all these people for
doing this for Jeff", said an emotional Dave Stillin.  The spirit of giving
is alive and well.
