New Paintball Field in Huntington Beach?

Ok so I've been working on making this happen for quite some time now, and opportunities are presenting themselves. The field is going to be indoor, speedball only (as of now). I plan on having two fields, one regulation sized and another smaler one for smaller groups. It WILL be FPO, sorry guys.

I've been playing the sport since... middle school? I've been around long enough to know what players want and dont want. Hopefully that will show when the field is finished.

What I want is to know what you guys think. Bash the idea, love the idea?

Do it. It would probably be the "home field" if it was nice.

hmmm field paint will probabaly make people not want to go. i know its a source of profit but a lot of fields over price the paint. a decent case of paint should only be like $25. just saying. if you have some days where its byop you will get a lot more customers. im sure you know what youre doing but we will see

All you have to do is make field paint about 5-7 bucks cheaper than everywhere else. I know on a large scale that's probably thousands of dollars, but it would bring in more customers. and some of us would be willing to pay a few extra bucks for field paint if it saved us money on gas from driving to gecko/compound, or having to put up with HSP. Do it bro. Just remember, if you fail, you will be hated in the paintball world..... NO PRESSURE.

yeah. no offense to leon or anything but when splat was going on and the field paint was 45 a case. that was rediculous. i played once and never came back. just dont charge a lot for paint.

Yup. Went something like this:

OP: "Yo, guys...I'm gonna open a pb field in xxxxx location...cater to tourney players...blah blah...what do you think?"

2-4 pages of everyone saying: "YEAH!!! GREAT IDEA!!! I'M DOWN FOR SURE!!! ANY UPDATES!!!"

Then nothing.

Me thinks that this will be the same.

If you keep paint at 30 a case or below I personally would have no problem paying for fp personally.

Make sure its very well lit too nothing worse than crappy/bad lighting

Where the he'll in hb are you going to find room for an indoor paintball field??? There was another thread like this but the guy wanted to build a field on the el toro marine base in irvine... That never happened... So make sure your positive this is going to happen...
