The NPPL regrets to announce the cancellation of the entire Houston tournament and tradeshow.

In light of the destruction and devastation caused by Hurricane Ike and the uncertain outlook for Houston and the surrounding areas we believe this is the correct decision.

NPPL officials have been in constant contact with officials at Reliant Stadium, the hotels, airport and other key stakeholders related to our event; their assessment is that it could take several weeks before basic services will be fully and reliably restored.

With this uncertainty and the long planning and execution needed for an exceptional NPPL event, we have also decided there will be no make-up date replacing the Houston event.

We hope you join us in sending our thoughts and prayers to Houston and the region as they stabilize and rebuild.

We invite all parties to join us at the upcoming San Diego event at Qualcomm Stadium November 14-16.

Please check back to NPPL.com for updates and additional information.



Apparently along with all the hurricane stuff the city took away there permit b/c FEMA has taken over the parking outside reliant park.




Well this really sucks for me:
1. It was 30 min drive from my house
2. I had a full access media pass for the event and was covering pump division for paintballphotography.com
