Bob Gurnsey Scholarship Fund Update

The Bob Gurnsey Paintball Scholarship is pleased to announce ongoing efforts to build the fund continue to meet with resounding successes. Recent big games to include the Tippmann World Challenge at Hell’s Survivors in Pinckney, Michigan and Fall Castle Conquest at EMR Paintball in New Milford, Pennsylvania have seen fundraising activities at both. Fully $350 and $381 respectively were raised at the games which go a long way towards an ongoing continuation of building the fund.

“Once again the EMR Family shows that even in these hard times, they have the heart to give to help others, especially within our sport. They never cease to make me proud.” mentioned Blue Hanse of EMR regarding the fund raising there. Very special thanks to both Dave Massey of Hell’s Survivors and Blue Hanse of EMR and the paintball communities attending the games for their support.

Once again the scholarship not only supports youth and education all in the name of paintball, it will serve as a lasting legacy for the father of paintball Mr. Bob Gurnsey. Both paintball manufacturers and the paintball community itself continue to amaze with generous contributions from across North America. Every little bit helps and as more time passes, it will be the responsibility of the committee and the paintball community at large to insure the fund is both maintained and built to sustain many generations wanting a post secondary education to come.

The Bob Gurnsey Paintball Scholarship Fund executive committee is particularly thankful for such companies as Tippmann Sports, Valken Sports, paintballgear.ca, NPPL, CIA and Planet Eclipse for their ongoing support of this initiative.
