Thank you to the community for the warm welcome we received for
the Grand Opening of the Ketchikan Hot Shots Paintball League
field on Revilla Road...and thank you to all of those who have
stopped using the field area as a target shooting range. Unfortunately
I found two broken bottles and two oil drums shot up yesterday.
This creates a hazard for people who use the field for paintball
games so we hope in the future the shooting enthusiasts will
make use of the Gun Club that is available to them at no charge.

Dream Of Establishing Paintball Club
Comes True By Marie
L. Monyak - At 19 years of age, local resident Ty Rettke had

teenagers and young adults in the Ketchikan area. He had no lofty
goals of finding a cure for cancer or establishing world peace,

a club. - More...
