Less than a month to go before the standard-setting epic Battle Royale transforms Eagle River Town Square Park into a friendly war zone featuring darts flying from behind barricades and Nerf warriors battling it out in the midst of various obstacles for bragging rights as the distinctive champions of this first-ever local event.
Date: April 8
Time: 11 a.m.
Better get your spot on the battlefield reserved before enlistment is full.
Okay, a bit dramatic there, but yes, if you want in on this tournament that will set the standard for fun in April’s snow in Eagle River, now is the time to take action.
Get registered at the Battle Royale page and support the efforts of the Eagle River Area Rotary Club to give back to our local park. Create a full team of six or just let us know you are coming so we can assign you to a team.
Either way, shake the dust off your Nerf guns sitting in the closet or upgrade to today’s modern tactical Nerf and get ready to have some serious fun while doing good things for our local community.
We all love the Eagle River Town Square and its adjacent green space. But love isn’t enough to help keep our park what we want for ourselves and our children to enjoy. The reality is that shrinking government budgets equate less money to take care of the park. Add to that the unfortunate activities of vandals causing damage that only takes away from additional amenities and maintenance and we come to a place where our dear park needs our help.
The Rotary folks have stepped up to make that happen. They have committees meeting and plans being formalized to cover every detail of this event. There isn’t an item they’ve overlooked in the effort to make this a first class event sure to be the talk of local coffee shops well past tax day.
This is a spectator-friendly event: Food trucks will be on hand to handle your hunger, game booths for the kids to keep them entertained and radio to emcee the event keeping you informed of action on the field.
But, you don’t want to miss out. That’s why the ECHO News encourages you to sign up today. Be a part of local history in the making.
