Red Dawn, our original and BIGGEST event that we hold every year, returns to Badlandz Paintball in Crete IL!

The Story:
During the height of the cold war, NATO members withdrew their membership leaving America to stand on their own against the Warsaw Pact who is quickly expanding their influence across the globe. On a bleary September morning, the small town of Calumet, Colorado, became the drop zone for elite Soviet paratroopers. The Soviets quickly overran the town and seized control of all civil activities. We come to learn that along with the Soviet paratroopers, Cuban forces have aligned themselves with the USSR for an all-out invasion of America. A small group of teenagers, who were still in high school, decide to retreat to the mountains surrounding their small town and hide out for as long as they can. But, peace does not last forever. After a month of hiding out; they accidentally provoke the invading forces. Once this happens, the rest of the now occupied town catches wind of the group and all hell breaks loose. The teens, who call themselves "Wolverines" to pay homage to their high school mascot, who are led by a former student and quarterback, are now wanted as terrorists. They now have no choice but to fight back to survive against the wave of red consuming their small town by any means necessary. Soon, though, the group learns something important: they are very good at fighting…
