         Earlier this month students from Kirkwood Community College went to war on the Astroturf battlefield with paint guns loaded.

         On Tuesday March 12, 30 students from Kirkwood headed to the Adventure Park Paintball facility to participate in the college's second time offering paintball as an intramural. Brett Baumgart, Rec Center coordinator and intramural coordinator said he decided to offer paintball a second time due to the good turnout last year.

         Mitchell Jacobi, business emphasis, said he participated in the activity both years and won a free pass to a paintball facility last year for being on the winning team. Jacobi said he has played paintball his whole life and decided to sign up for the intramural because it is fun and it is something he can do with his golf buddies. Jacobi described his experience as a good one, saying it was fun and that it got his adrenaline running. When asked if he had any suggestions for intramurals Kirkwood could offer Jacobi stated the college has about everything covered.

         Flag football, basketball, pickle ball, laser tag, table tennis, Texas Hold 'Em and rock, paper, sissors are just some of the many intramurals Kirkwood offers. Baumgart said people should sign up for intramurals to have fun, meet new people, play games, exercise, and enjoy themselves.
