APRIL BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
Doug Petroskey, the owner of Shoot House Paintball,
came up with the idea while in the Army.
He served for 9 years and through those experiences,
he had the opportunity to learn a great deal of
military tactics and wanted to be able to pass that
knowledge on. He was inspired to build a safe and
comfortable place for people to play paintball and
liked the idea of creating an environment that encouraged exercise in a fun way that would appeal to kids.
He feels that in a world where social media and video games tend to rule; that it’s great to see kids outside with their family and friends, engaging with one another and learning something new. Shoot House Paintball prides itself on team building, communication, and sportsmanship. With a game like paintball, it allows for a different set of skills to be developed, as it’s not always the fastest or strongest who ends up being the top player in the game.
They’ve been working hard to create a new division of the field. The new portion will be set up for scenario style self-defense and/or law enforcement trainings. By using mag fed paintball guns, one can safely train for real world scenarios. Doug anticipates that section of the field to be open by late Spring 2019.
This will be the first full year Shoot House Paintball has been open. They are open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. until the last check in at 5:00 p.m. The cost ranges between $15-$25 per player; depending on the size of the group and that gets you the field for 2 1/2 hours, all the safety equipment, paintball guns, 250 paintballs, and unlimited air.
