Lots of money upfront involved in creating a field.

Lots of work, and time.

actually the field owners don't make much money for a good long while simply because start up cost and then there is getting your name out there which requires money usually too

I would never want to operate a field. If I had the room I would put one up and just invite people to come play but I wouldn't charge or supply paint or anything.

Most waivers are useless in a courtroom.

I wouldn't make anyone sign anything because quite frankly I don't give a ****. It's like playing out in the woods behind your house with your friends. who signs waivers? Nobody. **** it.

That's how I feel with my backyard field. I told one sketchy kid who asked what would happen if he broke something and sued me:

Me: bullets are cheap, see that sink hole right over there....

Him: yeah, your point....

Me: do you see a body in it....

Him: no....

Me: didn't think so, it only took 2 days for it to disappear

He never came back lol

Hear me out. I think I have a super rare opportunity here.

First. I have always been the entrepreneur type and planned on taking my life in that direction. I enjoy Long hours and the challenge of taking on a task. I'm already married so social like is non existent.

Next- The university was going to Build a field on campus. They purchased a brand new Bauer compressor 6 bulk tanks and fill stations. 2 rolls of 20x300 netting. All the steel cable to hang the netting and all that.

While leveling out the ground for our field, a grave stone was uncovered. This put the whole project on hold and ultimately canceled. I asked about the compressor and netting. I was told they no longer needed and would sell it, a couple hundred dollars would take all of it.

Finally- a family member owns several large warehouses in the suburbs of the Lexington. This is a huge market for players. Closest field is almost 2 hours fr here. Lots of players in the area. One of these warehouses is empty and unused. Interior dimensions are 150x220. No poles. Great lighting. The rent would be free, and electric bill is covered just because it's family owned.

If you don't do it, let me get that compressor. Filling off scubas sucks balls

Then what the **** are you waiting for? Get some turf and bunkers and set it up for team play then when you start making some cash pick up a stock of rental equipment.

Looked up Bauer compressors. if you can get one for "hundreds" not "thousands" I'd be on that so fast.

I'm with jim, what the **** are you waiting for. If you can do all day 45 fills, ****, 3000 even, do that **** bro.

Really the only major considerations left, are turf, staff, bunkers, and security. Those are smaller game compared to netting, air, location.

even if 3000 fills it would be worth it. plus that compressor will do 45 fills more then likely 6 bulk tanks that is excessive the netting will need more probably depending on what you wanna do.. if you can put 2 fields in the space and divide them in the middle


jim i didn't pm about the dm i was all about a different marker you have haha
