12 January 2012 / Sin City Shootout

The FGG is pleased to share a message from our friends at the Sin City Shootout, an event supported by several FGG member organizations:

A winter sports festival for LGBT athletes is taking place this January 12-15, 2012 in Las Vegas Nevada.

The 5th annual Sin City Shootout, which began in 2007 as just a softball tournament, has
grown into a multi-sport event offering softball, tennis, wrestling and bodybuilding competitions.

Over 3,000 athletes will be traveling from across North America to participate in this weekend-long event.

We expect 2,250 players softball players, with an additional 750 athletes from the other sports on the program, and of course many friends and fans being a part of the event.

The event is coordinated by the Greater Los Angeles Softball Association, with tournament director Eric Ryan saying their number one goal is the athletes: “Everything we do is with the athlete in mind” Ryan said. “This includes great deals on travel, a central host hotel and discounted restaurants throughout the event that participants can take advantage of. They are traveling from across North America and we need to make them feel as welcomed as we can.”

With a central host hotel having over 1,000 rooms reserved for the event, nightly parties and social events throughout the weekend, this is sure to be a hit for all those involved.

The vision according to Ryan is to slowly add 1 or 2 sports each year to make it a true winter sports festival.
