IRENE occurs at the Fort Knox MOUT facility, known as Zussman KY. I agree with the idea of ghost towns as lots of provinces have them. The issue would be whether they are in fact 100% vacated, and then approaching the municipal government and the local constabulary to ensure everything is cleared and approved. Not an impossible plan, just not a very easy one either.

Quality not quantity in essence...
I'm not sure I would consider Oklahoma "exotic", but it ties in with your point about like-minded players. When the idea of EAST WIND got suggested to myself and a few others, we fell in love with it. This was exactly the type/style of play we preferred. On average the event draws about 100 people (or less), but they are devoted people. The style of game play is one I have yet to see reproduced here in Canada, but that's not to say it can't or won't be.

Admittedly, this is the first I've heard of TRIGLAV. I don't normally look at the out-of-province games on ASC, so I guess I'm at fault for that one I am unable to attend as it is a time/money issue for me, but it does look interesting, so I'd definitely be interested in attending if it happens again in the future.

I would love to see something akin to any of the LC events happen here in Canada. I would love to see a decently-sized urban environment be used, but anyone who had the kind of cash needed to create such a field would have to have more than just the airsoft community to rely on for income. If it were possible to purchase something like a ghost town, slowly make repairs, and offer it to different agencies as a training facility, then it could be a possibility. But that's looking a *long* way into the future in a hypothetical situation.

Just a little food for thought....
