Fancy yourself a Robin Hood… or Katniss Everdeen?
Dodgebow could be your next obsession.
The outdoor sport – a hybrid of laser tag, ball games and traditional archery – has taken the world by storm.
In Brisbane, Jay Rowe organizes regular Friday night games at Beenleigh and absolute beginners are welcome.
It’s fun and safe – with supplied face-masks and special blunt-edged arrows used in play.
For a $25 fee, you get full tuition; all the gear (bow, arrow, safety goggles, arm protection) and a rousing game of this fast-energy, lots-of-fun sport.
You must be over 10 years of age to play in the weekly games – but younger players don’t miss out. Jay can organize Dodgebow events for special occasions, including birthday parties.
Jay’s also the catalyst behind a post-apocalyptic live-action game called PostShock – which happens 4 times a year at Pimpama.
Around 200 people attend – dressed in costume and armed with nerf guns and gel guns. The weekend-long game is set in a village with old buildings, tanks, trucks and other paraphernalia meant to represent a community from the dystopian future.
