Well it is a big state and there are not as many fields compared to 7 years ago. That being said, more places to play, tournaments, and spreading the word like gospel are my suggestions!

Billings is one of the only places in Montana that the "if you build it they will come" mentality would actually work. So frustrating to see that it hasn't happened yet.

Well I'd like to see more people interested in it. I was thinking about posting some things at the colleges and schools to see if we can get that interest.

Be careful posting at the schools. If you are at a public school you can catch some hell for it.

This. And plus with the large oil boom in eastern Montana, people who move there for short quick money are looking to burn it someplace. They just need a reason! Also with some radio or possibly billboard ads around Billings, you could spread the word pretty good!

Some kind of law. I'm not 100% on why, but I know you couldn't roll up into shepherd high and start hanging flyers. College campus' should be good.

That's a very good point.

The interest is there already. I get calls every week. During the summer wild rose stays well booked and he is hardly known.

We need land, plain and simple. I already have the funds and the equipment to set up a field, I just don't have a place that makes business sense.

Any land in between Laurel and Billings? Might be a good spot. Or south of town, or alkali creep valley area (good terrain).

It's there, I've never been able to get somebody to lease it to me. The land between Laurel and Billings would be awesome, but it's expensive because that's the direction Billings is expanding. Hardest part is leasing land. Most people don't want to lease to a paintball field.
