BROOKFIELD, QLD., March 20th: Owners of the local LaserTag.com.au outfit threw themselves behind this year's Teddy Bears' Picnic to help raise funds for Camp Quality, the ACT for Kids, and CareFlight last weekend.

Owners, Peter and Nicole Lander, together with their children Zabrynn and Benjamin, worked as a team issuing game briefings, running laser games, and raising money.

This year was the first time LaserTag.com.au was one of the feature attractions of the picnic. LaserTag.com.au is just like a video game; it is the red team versus the green team.

"It's all about the kids," said LaserTag.com.au Marketing C.O, Nicole Lander.

"We are glad we could contribute to Camp Quality, the Abused Child Trust and RACQ Careflight," said Nicole. "And what better way to raise funds than to have fun?" she said.

"We ran lots and lots of fast and fun games," she said.

The equipment uses a harmless infrared beam, like your TV remote, that tags sensors worn by players. This new style of ride is exciting for both the participant and the spectator.

"It was a really successful event, with more than 2,000 people enjoying the day and raising more than $10,000 for the charities," she said.

"It is important to us to give back to the community, running fundraising events for worthy causes, like these kids' charities," said Nicole.

"My favourite game was the Mega Battle where all participants play the entire 5 minutes, no matter how many times they get shot!" she said.

Games are usually $5 for 5 minutes, but Nicole and her family volunteered their time and equipment and offered games for a simple gold coin donation.

"We were glad to participate in Brookfield Show Grounds' Teddy Bears' Picnic, Sharon and Franzwa from Brisbane West Real Estate did a great job organising the day, and we hope that next year is even bigger," she said.
