GUNUP.COM To Sponsor Geek Shootouts Nationwide

A while back I got the chance to attend the first Geek Shootout, sponsored by GUNUP.COM. It was at an indoor range in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue. T%his first event was in the evening, starting with some quality range time, and then followed by some socializing at a local watering hole. Unfortunately I wasn't able to stick around for the socializing as I had a fair ways to drive plus a ferry ride to get home. None the less, everyone seemed to have a great time, and now GUNUP has decided to take the Geek Shootouts nation-wide. Here's the email I got from Dan Hall, the head honcho at GUNUP:
 As always, we send out our news to our bloggers first. So in that tradition, we are pleased to announce our nationwide expansion of the popular Seattle Geek Shootout.

We are a proud sponsor of the Seattle Geek Shootout which has been a tremendous success and we are excited to announce that we, along with our friends at Girl's Guide to Guns, are bringing the Geek Shootout to Los Angeles, the first of many Geek Shootout Tour venues. We are going to let the community decide where we take the Geek Shootout next and enthusiasts can go to GeekShootout.com (launching February 21st) and tell us why the Geek Shootout Tour should come to their city.

For all the Geek Shootouts, GunUp provides lane fees, targets, and GunUp T-Shirts. We feel that it is paramount to reach demographics not normally associated with the Shooting Sports Industry.  There is actually tremendous interest from those in the gaming and technology community to see what shooting is all about, these events provide a opportunity for people to experience the fun of shooting in a safe and supportive environment.
Thank you for your continued support.

Dan Hall
CEO, GunUp
