Paint­ball! Are you ready to play?

Serve Daily - - BUILDING COMMUNITY - By Chris Baird

We are blessed to live here in Utah County where paint­ball is pick­ing up again in pop­u­lar­ity! Thank you to Rob Scott and fam­ily for bring­ing a great paint­ball field to Amer­i­can Fork, All­stars Paint­ball. “I started the paint­ball field be­cause it is one of my pas­sions. I am com­mit­ted to grow­ing the sport in Utah and wanted to show­case how I think a field should be run,” Scott said. For those just want­ing to find a fun ac­tiv­ity for fam­ily or date nights, the field uses low im­pact .50 cal­iber paint­balls. Scott men­tioned that its “all of the fun with­out get­ting the huge welts.”

All-Stars hosted its first three-man team tour­na­ment on April 30 for rookie tour­na­ment play­ers. Play­ers could have no pre­vi­ous tour­na­ment ex­pe­ri­ence. The tour­na­ment had 10 par­tic­i­pat­ing teams. Team Utah Up­ris­ing were the vic­tors and placed first. Team Cap­tain Wallys Vil­lar said, “Paint­ball to us is more than a sport. It brought us to­gether. We are a team that feels like fam­ily. It is great to see peo­ple of all ages get to­gether to play and com­pete. The com­mu­nity is al­ways work­ing on grow­ing the sport and get­ting bet­ter.

Off the field, we all care about each team im­prov­ing. Guys like Rob Scott at All-Stars, Bernie Bringhurst at Mon­stah and the team at UXP need recog­ni­tion for all they do to make it great for vet­er­ans and new­bies to play. It was a plea­sure for us to com­pete with all th­ese great peo­ple and feel blessed to have taken first!”
