Point is, a majority of the people who play aren't exactly financially well off. And for the people who are.... Why would they want to invest their money in a failing industry unless there was "guaranteed" success?

Exactly. In the spirit of this, any money I put into it I wouldn't expect to see back in cash. Maybe in discounts on gear and paint or free play, but I personally don't want to put any more of a drain on a business that would be making marginal profit at best to begin with. Dunno how the rest of you would feel though.

I think we have a group of people willing to put in time and man hours

but nobody with the startoff cash

this goes for myself, I have a business degree and I would be willing to work and ref for free
but we need someone with startup cash

Tommorrow I am having lunch with the guy who owns the building (planned before this thread got started). I am going to ask if he would want to invest in this (he has plenty of $$$ to finance this).

If everyone can, get with your teams, friends, etc... and see if any of them would be willing to donate money. In exchange we could offer them free field fees, etc... Also, if we got sponsors to donate gear we could then raffle the stuff off to raise even more money.

Looking forward if my guy is up to fronting some money, we could then purchase used items from a field that may have shut down and looking to unload their stuff just to get the place started. Once the doors open then we advertise, advertise, and advertise in addtion to flying banners of companies willing to pay us in either advertising dollars and/or free gear (which we would sell in the pro shop).

The goals would be to build up a nest egg for the facility, then buy new equipment and then pay back any debts.

I realize that this thread is just wishful thinking and my guy may not pan out but you never know.

Your probably not gonna be able to get much donation because the majority of use only have enough cash to play. You can get labor help from all of us and if you want a good price on a set of bunkers, netting and turf PM T-rex, He has all kinds of stuff for sale.

If y'all can get this started I'd take a loss on all my field gear & give y'all a good price... I can come help clear out the building if it needs it & set up fields & all that when I can get off work

This sounds like a great idea. Id be willing to help out. But just like everyone else I cant really put THAT much money into it. Just manual labor. Keep us updated!

this may have something going, if he already owns the building he dosent have to front the cost to buy it or rent it.

if you can "sell" the idea that for little investment you may be able to turn a profit this could get started.

That and the fact that he wouldnt have to pay any of us to work the field for him is in his advantage.
Im down to work at least a couple weekends a month

Lol it just sucks so bad driving so far to get to a field man. If you dont have a license talking parents into spending their day taking us to Louisville and back ****ing sucks haha that's why i cant play much. If there was a field in Lexington i could play so much more.

With that being said, I will keep everyone posted.

Also, I would really hate for this space to go to waste and I have always strongly felt that an indoor/outdoor facility like this would do great in Lexington. It would be nice to get a group of people to throw their money into a pot and do this.
sorry bro ive been busy with insane kids and work. but i met with my partner yesterday and we went oveer a few things for the field and we are going to try and set up a meeting with the owner of the warehouse for next Friday when he comes back up to Lex. i just sent you an email also bro.

Good deal.

Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I am meeting with him today and I will see what I can work out with him.
