My wife received the following from, I guess, a Ft. Hood news letter. I thought posting it here would be beneficial to some people and myself.

"Make a Splat at BLORA's Paintball Course

Get your game on at BLORA's paintball course, now under new management. The course features diverse terrain and gaming fields and is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday.

Rent equipment from the field and play for only $30 for the day. The fee includes the course fee, air, rental gear and 500 rounds of paint. If you own your own equipment the cost is only $25.

The paintball course is available during the week for 10 to 50 people from groups and units wishing to have fun or do some training. Just make a reservation at least one week in advance. A $5 per person deposit is required. For more information, call 702-4146 or 681-6409."

I'm not to certain about the price, but I wonder if they would let airsoft onto the course?
