Thanks for making Ketchikan better! even at the Rock Pit...
By Bobbie McCreary


April 21, 2007

We are with you, Jerry! And we thank members of our community for NOT stopping at the paintball park on Revilla Road to shoot at the barriers (like the empty drums)or burn tires and cable reels. And there are many to thank because the vandalism has dropped markedly in the last year since we occupied the property. (Thank you Cape Fox Corporation for making this possible.)

Aren't you all proud of the Ketchikan Hot Shots Paintball League for keeping that property cleaned up? Do you remember what the rock pit used to look like?

Please pass the word, this property serves a youth-led and operated non profit venture. We are building new youth leaders and providing a healthy drug-free activity for young people 12 and up (no upper limit age of players.)

We have plans to keep the park open all summer...those plans revolve around having a presence at the field 24/7 (a security guard presence) so we can leave the netted wall in place and make it possible to put on games with only a little prep work. Do you know someone who would like to stay out there? Call 617-2939 if you do.

And come out to visit or play (we have equipment to rent) is a beautiful location and we have some great players involved. Call 617-0102 if you need more information.
