ASG Annual Christmas Toy Drive Tournament
Action Star Games in Colton held its annual toy drive tournament earlier this month. With over 15 teams having pre registered, it turned out to be a fantastic event. It was "Open Class" bringing players of all calibers from beginner to pro players like Andy Horvath of Chicago Aftershock and Tyler Harmon of San Dan Diego Dynasty.
Even though it was a tournament, people were more out to have fun and help those in need by bringing toys to donate than to win the event, but that doesn't stop things from getting competitive. Planet Eclipse team, MVP Sandbaggers, was out with Tyler Harmon and some of the crew from Mountain View Paintball in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, a warranty center for the Planet Eclipse family of markers. With a disappointing start, MVP Sandbaggers were able to rally to win every game going in to finals, where they were later knocked out.
It was not a total loss as the MVP Sandbaggers, along with the rest of the teams participating in the event, were able to bring toys that were later distributed by The City of Colton's Community Services and Crestmore Elementary School in Bloomington to those who may not of had Christmas gift other wise. It is alway great to see the paintball community come together for a cause and the Toy Drive Tournament at Action Star Games was no different, Wayne and Karen from ASG truly care about the sport, and the community.
