Located in central New York, just off New York State Thruway exit 40, midway between Rochester and Syracuse, sonorous moos and sloshing tins of milk once echoed across this idyllic nine-hole course, which James and Dee Ball converted from their family dairy farm in 1968. Since then, Meadowbrook Golf Club has seen a slew of proprietors, each of whom have added their own distinct touch by installing automatic watering, improving the drainage system, or building a 40’x80’ pole barn to house equipment and botched Dorf clones.
In May 2008, PGA golf professional Trey Walewski and his wife, Tina, took over the Meadowbrook. The golf club remains a family owned and operated business with Trey and Tina, and their daughters, Taylor and Sydney, taking on the operations of the course, practice facilities, pro shop, and bar and grill.

Soldiers dart across Combat Zone Paintball Park’s grassy outdoor field, fighting for a single, noble purpose: to splatter their opponents with brightly colored paint. To prepare for play, participants can rent gear from an onsite shop, which doles out paintball guns, masks, and CO2 canisters, or bring their own paintballs produced by their malfunctioning bouncy-ball factory.
In their inaugural year as the Short-Season A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, the Doubledays swing lumber, flash leather, and fling heaters under the lights of Falcon Park from June 18 until September 2. From the camaraderie-packed confines of general-admission seats, fans join cheering spectators at any of the Doubledays' 2011 games, including promotional dates and events such as post-game fireworks, $1 Thursdays, and Take Your Catcher to Work Day. Replete with a new roster and skipper, the club gears up to emulate the champagne-showered success of the 2007 squad, which captured the New York–Penn League championship after winning its division for the sixth straight year.
The sounds of skates gliding across wooden floorboards and top 40 hits echoing from loudspeakers constantly fill the air at Reva Rollerdrome. Skaters flock to the rink during open skate and themed events, such as the rink's annual "School's Out" party, where skaters can win contests and practice for next school year when teachers finally allow skates in the hallways. Other times, the rink is cleared for high-energy fitness classes or to make room for inflatable play structures, such as a bounce house or air-filled obstacle course. The attentive staff monitors safety during party rentals by recreating what it's like to live on a cloud.
