The German American Friendship Society of Pinellas brings together locals with a connection to Germany whether that connection is being of German descent or having served in Germany in the military. Whatever their background, all society members have one important thing in common: they love German culture. The society runs Saturday-night dances with rotating themes and a live band, and also participates in a number of folk festivals across the state. Members can also look forward to a number of events to celebrate German heritage including the always popular Oktoberfest. The festival showers participants in authentic German food and beer, live Oompah music and dancing, and a beer-mug-holding contest to see who can go the longest without snorkeling in their glass.
The sounds of crunching leaves break the otherwise still air, causing a pair of laser-tag teammates to slow their breathing and crouch down low. One of them puts a finger to her lips and peers over a fallen log, catching sight of an opponent before carefully aiming her laser gun in his direction. The sensors strapped to his head detect the hit, disengaging his gear for up to three seconds and rendering him unable to retaliate. This is a common scene at Mission Quest Adventures, where players cavort in an outdoor arena while clutching weapons loaded with laser beams. Adrenaline levels spike as warriors dive under bushes and dodge behind trees, aiming for victory in organized games such as capture the flag, last person standing, and pantomimed bowling.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
The ladies -nly Power Punch and Cross Fusion Fitness classes were created by a professional MMA Fighter to give all women the ability to train like a pro and look like a pro, without getting punched, kicked, or taken down. The workouts we do are the same workouts professional fighters and athletes use in their every day training routines.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
A girlfriend came to me for help with post baby weight loss, and after seeing results so soon, convinced me to extend my training to other women.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
