It's not played in secret, smoke-filled, back rooms anymore. Poker is mainstream America, whether it is a friendly game in the home, or in a world championship tournament. And now, with the NPA, players can enjoy the benefits they deserve.
Franklin, TN (PRWEB) June 7, 2005
The NPAÂ, National Poker Association, is a new organization designed for the 50 million poker players nationwide of all skill levels. Representing everyone who plays, the NPA's mission is to offer services and benefits to anyone who enjoys playing poker, to promote enthusiasm for the game, to give players a way to show their pride, to lobby for improved poker legislation and to offer discounts on travel and entertainment.
With the World Series of Poker beginning on June 2, and the World Championship Event beginning on July 7, poker is once again in the spotlight. As a special promotion, and to introduce NPA to the world, if the WSOP World Championship Event winner is a member of the NPA, he or she will also receive a Super Bowl-style NPA World Champion ring.
"With the popularity of poker rising, people everywhere are realizing what fun the game really is," said Wes Parker, NPA President. "It's not played in secret, smoke-filled, back rooms anymore. Poker is mainstream America, whether it is a friendly game in the home, or in a world championship tournament. And now, with the NPA, players can enjoy the benefits they deserve."
By offering all players the opportunity to become part of a large group, the NPA can then use that collective voice to promote the sport. They have partnered with many companies to offer members a variety of discounts and benefits. Members can also purchase NPA logo apparel, access the land-based poker room locator, casino information and locator, view tournament schedules, read the newsletter, get a legislative update, and much more, all included with membership and available at http://www.myNPA.org.
The NPA is like other organizations that cater to people with specific interests or hobbies. Members will benefit from the many services and resources offered through the Web site with a 1-year membership for only $25. The NPA will increase members' enjoyment of poker and take the game to a higher level.
