That sux...maybe we can do in Fairbanks what we have set up in Safford: one guy owns a compressor and bulk tanks, I sell paint from APX, and the city actually gave the paintballers some land to use as a field out in its recreational area.
Any shot at the city letting us use some unused land? Has anyone tried it yet? Heck, I've spent probably a month's time in man hours working on the field here and wouldn't mind doing it there, even if it was seasonal, as long as I still got to play. That is, assuming that it would be more than my wife and I doing ALL the work as it pretty much ended up being here. I've had the odd random friend help out maybe 3 times in...6 years. So yeah... if there's a will, there's a way.
I'm a year or two from getting a compressor (and even further from an airball setup) because I'm either getting laid off or getting pushed into quitting my current job here in a week and have to start life over and put my wife through school, but if others have the money right away, I certainly have the time.
I've been apart of paintball here for the last 10 years, built/rebuilt fields, held/put together/reffed tournaments both in AZ and New Mexico.
I'll post on here when I finally get up there (gotta drive from AZ. Yippee) and if anyone wants to do it, I'll help where I can. Otherwise, I guess I'll take up hiking or soemthing...lol.
