Paintball And Halloween Collide At Redneck Zombie Massacre

Friday, October 12, 2012

Guthrie Pumpkin Farm in Riceville, Tn. has added two new haunted attractions.  Shocktober Nights includes Redneck Zombie Paintball and gives visitors a chance to interact with real live “zombies.“ 

Josh Guthrie, event organizer, says “You don’t have to be a spectator anymore.  Now you have the chance to create your own adventure and actually participate in the experience.”  Participants are loaded onto a wagon and venture into the pitch black darkness where “zombies” are lurking.  However,  each participant is armed with a loaded paintball gun and has the opportunity to stop the zombies in their tracks.  

Shocktober Night events also include the Field Of Screams, a haunted corn maze with over a mile of "bone chilling terror."  Creatures of all kinds will be lying in wait in the darkness while guests attempt to navigate their way through the corn.  

Shocktober Nights will run each Friday and Saturday night through the month of October.  Hours of operation are  from 7-11 p.m. It is recommended to attend earlier in the month to avoid long lines which are expected closer to Halloween.  Admission is $10 for the Field of Screams and $15 for Redneck Zombie Paintball.  Both events are available for a package price of $19, sales tax included.

Walking Among Memories, The USS LST-325

I have walked among the head stones at Flanders Fields and have seen the entrenchment of soldiers with only bayonet tips sticking out of the earth. Later I traveled to Normandy where I stood on the sand and made scuff marks with my shoes on Omaha Beach and climbed the hill to the magnificent American Cemetery there. I again walked among the many, many tomb stones so neatly and ... (click for more)
