Bongo Ball, one of VSU’s newest events, will take place Sept., 18 on the 3rd floor of the Student Union from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.
The event, sponsored by Campus Activity Board, is a combination of laser tag and paintball.
This will be the first event coordinated by new CAB member, Shaheen Gilani.
“It gives you tag without lasers and ammo without paint,” Gilani, a senior communications major, said. “I wanted to do something thrilling, risk taking and full of action that would grab the attention of the VSU students to make them see how great CAB is.”
Students will use Nerf ammo along with Nerf guns for weapons.
According to Gilani, not only is it free, but it’s for everyone.
“If you’re a girly girl, Bongo Ball will allow you to get some action without getting bruised by hard hitting paint balls or getting sweaty or dirty,” she said. “Guys–you can shoot someone without hurting them. “
Students should expect an ever changing- course and a terrain full of surprises. Vendors will be able to change the event to match your skill level.
So, if you’re a beginner do not be afraid to try. You can watch from the sidelines to get a feel for it before you join the course.
Get a group of friends together and have a great time. You can even set up different teams to see who will come out victorious.
“I am excited for people to come out and experience something new and thrilling,” Gilani said. “It might even be a new continuous event for VSU.”
It’s free. No sweat. No pain– just plenty to gain.
