Gents, swing a club, shoot a hopper of paintballs ... there are plenty of ways to burn some adrenaline, chill out, and bond. Consider These: - Rent an ATV and burn up the Spearhead Trails - Bang around at Thunderbolt Indoor Karting or American Indoor Karting - Find your nearest shooting range and fire off a few rounds - Strategize on the paintball field as you pick sides and pick off one another - Hire a fishing guide and explore the local streams for cold biters - Tee off at a Virginia golf course or work on your swing at a driving range
