Sin City ShootOut
Since 2007, las vegas has been the host to this growing gay and lesbian sports competition. It is widely known to be the largest annual LGBT sports festival in the world.
Tournament Director Eric Ryan states “we plan this event from the view point of the athlete. We take into consideration that they are traveling to las vegas to compete against the best of the best and to go along with that, make sure we provide the best venues Las Vegas has to offer, as well as the best hotels and clubs to let loose in”.
Each night there are official host venues to give the athletes a meeting place off the field, as well as a central host hotel. The official host hotel for 2013 is the new Tropicana Las Vegas.
This event is open to the public and they are encouraged to attend the competitions as well as enjoy the nightly venues crowded with 1,000’s of LGBT athletes.
In 2007 tournament director Eric Ryan, from the Greater Los Angeles Softball Association, came to las vegas to plan a softball tournament and In just 6 short years, the event has morphed into a true lgbt winter sports festival. Each year they plan to add more sports as this event continues to grow every year, calling las vegas its home.
