Myrtle Beach Players, Petition

Ok. A few have thrown around the idea of opening a field in Myrtle. What I basically need to know, how many tournament players and scenario players in or around Myrtle Beach would be interested in a new field. One with the potential of hosting CFOA, PSP, NPPL, and UWL events. How many people actually play in Myrtle on a regular basis? If you know anyone in or around Myrtle that does play, please vote. This is for you guys.

From my count over the years, I came to counting around 50-75 tournament players over time, from all three of the fields that have existed. Currently in the myrtle beach area I can only count around 10, excluding coastal kids, which is probably a lot more.

It's honestly no debate you'd be successful if you're experienced in the sport, and you understand the demographic of the beach. Mike Jenkins prior to closing had it going.

But he closed, and that's the issue. Was business bad, or did he just quit?

From what I heard his lease ran up and he didn't want to keep shop open. Could be wrong, just a rumor.

The more people who post on here, definitely helps. Because I know everyone will say Yes in the poll.

right now we have a 5 team "beach bumz" bluedreams, myself and some others we travel to Tabor city or fayetteville every weekend to play. It has been years since we've had a field we are all dedicated and loving players of the game and crave to be able to do drills and train and be on the field as often as possible currently we do drills in our backyard and travel way to far to play. It would be great if you opened up a field, and i can't speak for anyone but myself but you would have my full support and i would provide ANY help you need. I used to work at the store Paintball USA and I loved it, it was really such a sad thing to see it go the business did die toward the end due to a mixture of things.

Myrtle Beach hasn't had a field in years, in my opinion i think people would enjoy and love to see another field in the area.

let me say this a field can be done in myrtle beach.There are great people that will help you and still love the sport.Make sure to lock a affordable lease down and stay out of city due to zoning and laws that are in place that will tangle you up when trying to start.Put store and field in place not annexed by city.Civic you are right that was main reason.SCBallin36 it wasnt the advertising for a small store i spent alot on advertising tv,radio,newspaper,you name it in advertising and i did it.I even marketed outside sc using my relationship i developed with the city of mb thanks to thom v trying to get more tourist in to play.The field started going down once i gave up fighting with landlords and people trashing store for no reason.I truly care for the sport but had enough and called it quits.Just giving free info.Again it can be done and you can ask me what ever you would like including finances what i made,grossed and spent on advertising ect.I look forward to seeing a new field and a cfoa or psp event @the beach

Hey Mayberry. I can't send you a PM. If you're the guy who had the field before, PM me. I'd like to chat with you over the phone.
