Stride, The Ridiculously Long Lasting Gum Announces

$25,000 Save the Arcades 2 Winner!

Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade of Portland, Oreg. Was One of Three

Arcade Finalists

Parsippany, N.J. (June 17, 2010) – Stride, The Ridiculously Long

Lasting Gum is excited to

announce that Ground Kontrol Classic Arcade of Portland, Oreg. is the

winner of Stride's Save

the Arcades 2 program. Save the Arcades 2 followed in the footsteps of

the first Save the

Arcades program in 2009, which invited gamers to play an arcade-style

game online and donate

points to one of three gamer-nominated arcades competing for $25,000.

Ground Kontrol was founded in 1999 and was later purchased by five

lifelong pinball and video

game fans. The arcade keeps the classic arcade alive, both for those

nostalgic for days gone

by, as well as for those who have never experienced a real arcade.

Ground Kontrol plans to

use the money to add space to their second floor, and more classic

games for everyone to


Gamers were invited to visit www.savethearcades.com from April 20 –

June 15 to play Cowbots

2010, an outrageous shooter game developed especially for Stride Gum

that pits man against

“moochine.” After completing the game, players then donated their

points to one of three gamernominated

arcade finalists from across the country. With 624,871,000 points,

Ground Kontrol

racked up the most points at the end of the competition and will be

awarded the $25,000

winning prize.

“Stride is excited to award Ground Kontrol with $25,000 and help

support this classic American

pastime,” said Nipa Shah, Stride marketing manager. “As many arcades

have closed their

doors, we are trying to help support this pastime while allowing true

gamers to keep playing and

ensuring these great games won't be forgotten.”

The Save the Arcade 2 participants included Ground Kontrol Classic

Arcade in Portland, Oreg.,

Rocky's Replay in Winter Park, Fla. and Arcade Infinity in Rowland

Heights, Calif.
