Initially conceived of in 1987 as a way for an avid paintball player and his friends to acquire discounted merchandise, Lone Wolf Paintball swiftly evolved into a multi-location business throughout Michigan. One year after opening, Bristol Apple Orchard in Almont accommodated the budding business with its first playing field. These days, Mount Clemens' Lone Wolf East locale serves as home to six fields spread across more than 40 acres of varied terrain. The field's designers make it possible for players to blast at opponents hiding behind inflatables, dive behind barrels or wooden spools to escape enemy fire, or find shelter atop a two-level structure deep in the woods. Referees ensure that each player competes safely in scenarios such as Capture the Flag and Return the Flag to Avoid Library Fines.
