Is it the price? Are Canadian players just too damn cheap?

Is it the travel location? Are Canadian players just too damn lazy to make the effort to get there, or rent a vehicle to get there?

Is it the season of the event? Are Canadian players, plainly put, just too damn Pussy..fair weather fighters only, if you will?

Does a large event require an urban component?

At 500 acres .. that'd comfortably fit 500 players .. 1 per acre.. think of it.

I suspect that Canadian players generally just aren't ready for OP Irene calibre games. Period. Not in the quantities and quality that are required.

The issue with Triglave is that the organizers are not known by the community, people won't take a chance with a new host till they have proven they can put on a solid game. It's a characteristic of the Ontario community that is tough to overcome. Start small and build is the way to do it.

Force recon has followed this path, and built a solid following for their events.

If Triglave, as small as it will be goes off well this year, it will build
