Badlands (RangerBall Event) Saint George, Utah 11/17/07 Rangerball may not be for everyone – games that include lots of hiking through unfriendly terrain, over many miles and can involve very little shooting. But for those that are up to it, come out to this scenario event where forces trek through the ungoverned Waziristan region between Afghanistan and Pakistan. This desolate, rugged desert terrain has become a safe haven for Al-Qaida. It’s the Ranger’s responsibility to find the Al-Qaida operatives. The event will consist of two phases; the first phase will begin at daybreak and go till around 11 a.m. Players participating in the first phase need to be ready for a five-mile hike. Players not wanting to hike that much or are incapable of hiking that much should not participate. The second phase will be a three team capture the flag type game. Those wanting to participate need to contact Rangerball Regiment Commander Ajax at (435) 703-9892.

Paintball is putting on this event and it will be officiated by Team Suppressor. Registration is $25 plus $55 for each case of paint.
