Paintball tourney on tap in Ash Flat

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Practical Nursing students at Ozarka College-Ash Flat are holding a paintball tournament Nov. 15, beginning at 10 a.m., at the Ash Flat City Park.

The park is between the ball fields and the American Veteran's Memorial on Nix Ridge Road.

Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Ozarka College Foundation and earmarked for scholarship endowments.

Ozarka student Cedric Morley is organizing the event to help other students benefit from scholarships in the same manner that he has benefitted.

"After being named as the recipient of the Harold Crawford Scholarship and realizing that the money came from people making donations in Judge Crawford's honor, I decided I could help out in some way by putting together a fundraiser," Morley said.

Morley has planned the event with the help of his classmates who will be holding a bake sale during the tournament as well as assisting him in conducting the games.

Entry fee for the speedball, single-elimination tournament is $30 per two-man team, which includes CO2 but no HPA.

Equipment must be stock class, non-fully automatic guns with no response triggers. There will be equipment available for rental and paint available for $40 per case.

Any paint brought to the tournament will be subject to inspection.

Participants will be required to sign a waiver and release of liability.

For more information, or to register for the games, contact Cedric Morley at 870-307-3157 or e-mail ozarkapaintball@gmail.com.
