Thumbs up Indoor field fund

Alright we need to get a field thats indoor around the carlsbad area because im tierd of:

1. driving pretty far
2.swimming while paintballing
3. having my fingers cold enough that i cant hit 10 if my life depended on it

so i thought of a idea if we could find a person to open a indoor field that has turf and airball and free from puddlies

we could have a players fund to help the guy out and make the field

we wont have to put in alot of money if alot of people do it.

anyone with me?

Why would you need a permit from the city? I understand having a liquor license and that cost lots of money. But would you need a permit that would cost crazy cash if you opened a say a candle shop? As long as you so proper insurance coverage I just dont see how it would be any different from say a bowling alley?

Good luck with that plan! Just forget about it and come to our very own indoor in santa clarita. Better yet check out our website Theprovinggroundz.com and then you'll decide to visit us.

So the APL will insure an outdoor field but no way in hell an indoor field. The APL is the number one insurance provider for paintball parks. So Why would someone look for a local based SD insurance provider whey they probably would have very minimal knowledge of paintball itself, Thus think its a huge risk, Thus have gigantic premiums that no ower would want to pay cause he would know it would not make his business profitable.

UMMM'? ANderson?

I think Velocity pay .25 cents per head Based of the waver forms they hand in at the end of the month to there insurance provider. Or maybe 30 cents per head. That is still stupid cheap. I also know that you can get a 1 million dollar blanket policy for 1400 buck annualy.

We'll I'm 28 so since we are both on the same Level, I believe that its fair for me to say this to you.

#1. why not get one in la. so all the vatos/blacks/asians/kkk's/gangs can go into war into paintballing and not in the streets.

(that was a pretty retarded statment bro)

#2. I heard your into the drug scene now. Quit while you are ahead.

Drugs probably explain your assinine post. LOL

Wow! Id sure like to have that insurance policy. I find $14,000 closer to the actual figure, not $1400

Yes. APL will insure Indoor fields. There one of two or three that will insure paintball. It is way more than .25 cents per head.

Yes, a paintball field requires a permit called a Major Use permit because there is no commercial zoning for paintball fields. It cost us $14,000 just to file the application in 1998. Expect to spend between $85,000 and $175,000 for a permit assuming everything goes your way, which from experience I can tell you it will not. Then, even if you get that far, the best commercial prices expect to pay between $9,000 - $15,000 a month for rent on a building no larger than our x-ball field. Current Industrial space (the cheapest) is running .45 cents a square foot. Our x-ball field is 20,250 sq ft.. That works out to $9112 per month. You will also be required to get a 1,000,000 insurance policy on the building itself in addition to paintball insurance.

Don't forget field maintinence, purchase of the bunkers themselves, payroll, employee insurance, phone, electricity (a very big expense in indoor fields), water, trash, city sewar fees and common area maintinence such as parking lot etc. etc.

In my opinion an Indoor field would be a financial disaster with the current cost of real estate at this time. Maybe in the future, but I just don't see it happening right now.

Not looking to shoot down your dream but I do have some real world experience here. Good luck!

proving grounds just MAY BE expanding their horizons to the LA area. but don't get hopes up. there's a thread up "friendly fire might reopen" friendly fire's owner is discussing w/ proving grounds' owner about a way to get another indoor field goin.
