The Student Activ­ities Board will host a battle-royale style paintball com­pe­tition at Michindoh Con­ference Center this Friday at 3 p.m. 

Teams of ten stu­dents will have 30 minutes to overtake another team on the Michindoh paintball course. Weapons and pro­tective gear will be pro­vided. The event is free to stu­dents, but par­tic­i­pants are respon­sible for finding their own transportation.

Stu­dents can choose between 4 time slots to play. Each team will be expected to be there 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time for equipment and safety briefings. 

Director of Student Activ­ities Zane Mabry ’20 said he is excited for this year’s paintball games. SAB has hosted the com­pe­tition before, but it was can­celed last fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“I really like this event because it is a little dif­ferent than a lot of other SAB events,” he said. 

Freshman Jack Walker said he is eager to participate.

“This is a great oppor­tunity for bonding with your friends and sounds just plain fun,” he said.
