The Albury (Australian) Pre-Nationals Competition #1 was held on the Queen’s Birthday weekend during June, 2017, and it was an absolute blast!

19 teams came from all over Australia and New Zealand to test their mettle and display a huge range of experience and skills, and it definitely presented an awesome spectacle. With 19 teams, Albury has set a new record for Pre-Nationals competitions, and the Albury ZLTAC (Zone Laser Tag Australasian Championships) is looking like it will be the largest laser tag competition in history, with possibly more than 33 teams (a record which was set last year in Adelaide).

Albury Pre-Nationals Competition #1 was run over 3 days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), and finished up with a very hard final series of 3 games, after which the rightful winners Adelaide Wolfpack, made up of players from Adelaide and Brisbane received their trophies and accolades.

I think everyone made their presence here a joy to others. That’s our goal here in Albury, to come along with a real respectful attitude so everyone wants to see you come along, because you’re fun to be with and compete against”. – Barry Elliot

Their daughter Emily Elliott organised and co-ordinated all of the Competition’s events, keeping the family business running excellently – with a huge level of professionalism and organisation, which ensured the entire competition ran smoothly. With 19 teams, Albury pre-nats had a higher number of players than any other manufacturer gets for their main competition—and this was only a side-competition!
