Checked out the website last night. I am looking forward to getting out there soon.
As a player, it would be cool if you offered all styles of play. As someone with a business background, I don't think it's wise to offer it all in the beginning because it's going to take more capital and pull your focus away from your true appeal: ATV's + Paintball.
Since you're starting with a niche market (Milsim Paintball) and doing something like no one else offers (ATV's + Paintball), I would stick with developing that niche market to its fullest before considering another part of the market (airball). Besides, the airball market here is mainly held by PCOC. You would want to meet or beat what they offer if you were going to take on the airball segment of the market. Right now you're really competing with the other fields in the area. I would mainly be asking myself (1) how am I going to get part of their share of the remaining market and (2) how do I create more market?
I would consult with the Oklahoma Small Business Development Center and Ryan Grey or John Hubbard from Avid (if you haven't already). Good luck and I can't wait to try out your field.
