Lula Lake Land Trust Announces Epic Capture The Flag Tournament

Friday, January 24, 2020

Lula Lake Land Trust announced Friday a new signature event taking place at the LLLT Core Preserve. Capture the Flag at Lula Lake is a brand-new experience nature lovers can enjoy. Styled as a tournament, this event will see two teams battle for victory in four rounds with the top two teams going head to head for prizes and glory. 
 
"Capture the Flag at Lula Lake is built around the prophecy of four kingdoms awaiting warriors to rise to the calling," organizers said. "Time-honored flags of celebration have been stolen. Do you have what it takes to bring home the glory? Those who are brave of heart belong to the Ruby Kingdom of the North, but cunning soldiers take hold of the Emerald South. While those eastern loyalists abiding the Amber Kingdom put up a fair fight, warriors of the Sapphire West are more clever than most. To whomever your allegiance is pledged, capture your kingdom’s flag and score a victory."
 
“Capture the Flag came about after discussions on how LLLT can engage audiences in unique recreational opportunities,” says Matthew Hubbard, LLLT director of development. “Our Executive Director Cody Roney brought this idea to the table, and our staff is not only excited to see the recreation aspect of the event come to life, but also partake in the battles.” 

Tickets are $10 per player and include one beer/soda ticket. This event is for players ages 16+. Spectator tickets are $5 (children under 12 are free), and the main trail to the lake and falls will be open for hiking. Ticket purchasing and more information can be found online at www.LulaLake.org/Events

Capture the Flag at Lula Lake is presented by Southeastern Salvage, Audi Chattanooga, Village Volkswagen of Chattanooga, First Horizon Bank, Elley, Chattanooga Whiskey and Bell’s Brewery.
