GALLERY: Laser skirmish blasts into Roma State College

YOU could be mistaken that there was a war going on at Roma State College middle campus on Saturday night, with cries of victory and gun fire.

This wasn’t a war as such, but the Roma Laser Skirmish Challenge.

Around 20 children turned out on the night, testing their skills against one another and completing missions.

Karl Radford, the owner of Roma Laser Games, has provided kids and adults the high octane rush of Laser skirmish for eight years.

Mr Radford said he has entertained kids from Yuleba, Surat, Injune and Wallumbilla.

“The kids really enjoy it, it gets them off the couch having fun, and they don’t realise they’re getting active in the process,” he said.

“The video game industry has a major impact on the business, we use terms such as domination and king of the hill so it’s like high tech tag.”

Mr Radford said the locals support had helped the concept thrive.

“The locals support us wherever we are,” he said.

“We hire local referees to help us run the game, its excitement and thrill for both kids and adults.”

Keen laser skirmish enthusiast Alex Ahern said he loved the competitive nature of laser skirmish and keeping active.

“I love running around with my friends and shooting,” he said.

“This is my third time playing laser skirmish it’s a lot of fun, my favourite weapon is the machine gun” he said.

The event was part of the Maranoa Regional Council’s School Holidays Program.
