Not the reason at all. Paintball in this area (speedball that is) died around 2007. Pro-action had reasonable prices for their field when it existed, yet only about 10 regulars would be there for speedball on a consistent basis. He packed that place with Woodsball players though.
Delmarva Paintball started out heavy in 2004-2007, then when speedball died in this area he moved outside and relied on woodsball to support his business.
I've been playing paintball since 1988 and I even used to run my own field for about 5 years in this area. Speedball is dead in this area, simply put. Its unfortunate but its the truth.
Again I wish you the best of luck and it would be awesome to see 4-6 speedball teams show up at your field on a consistent basis but its not going to happen. However I seriously hope I'm proved wrong because in the end it would be a good thing to have the Eastern Shore represented by more than 1 speedball team.
