Unhappy

Sad news. Diablo Venture Paintball field located in WalnutCreek/Concord has been shut down by the county due to a neighbor complaining. This was one of the best rec-woods ball fields around.
It makes me mad that this place has been around over 10years and now a new neighbor moves in and complains. Really upset:kaioken: The person(lady) knew that a paintball field was next door but decided to move in anyways. Than she gets the county to shut it down.

Hmmm, I'm gonna move in next to a wrecking yard thats been around for 20years. It is so loud around here that I can't sleep, i'm gonna complain and get that place shutdown.

Why are some people such *****s?

Good bye Venture Games. I enjoyed playing on your field. Maybe some day you will re-open.

I hope Mike re-opens the field. Thats one of the best woodsball around here. I think the reason I like that field so much is because it's the first field I played at and Mike is a great guy.

Mike is a really good guy, I remember when he also ran a shop in Concord and sold my my first marker (the first in many). He took care of all his cusotmers back then and made you feel at home in his shop. Mike is a real class act it sux to see his field go
