My Freedom Could Be In Your Hands - Up and Coming Court Case (re: specarms)
It's Will Wong from the old days of Specarms Airsoft. It's been literally over 2 years since I've seen most of you guys in the local airsoft community (in Vancouver BC that is). I hope you guys are all doing well!! It's great to see that the community here is still going strong after all these years
As you all may or may not know, after my business was shut down late 2006, Canada Customs had laid charges against me in regards to my business. Due to financial strain and personal issues, I was not able to afford to fight the long battle in court and had to plea guilty to several charges.
I am due for sentencing on December 1st and 2nd 2008 (Monday & Tuesday), in about 2 weeks time.
I am posting this thread in hope that the airsoft community that I was a part of, from late 2002 till late 2006, is still around on this board. I'm looking for OP-FOR AIRSOFT CLUB members that were around during that time.
I am looking to get in contact with any Admins, field marshalls, and Players that I shared my airsoft experiences with during that time. My lawyer has requested me to have at least 2 key witnesses that were also a part of our Club that can attest to my contributions as an Airsoft Player, Retailer to our Community locally in Vancouver BC and across Canada, and also as a Field Marshall during our games out at Panther Paintball and NV Paintball.
The reason for this is because I need to show that I was an airsoft player & retailer to the Airsoft Community, and not just some Joe Smoe selling airsoft items to criminals, people that were going to use it for criminal activities. As far as Crown/Prosecution is concerned, that is what they think people use airsoft for, they don't know that it is a sport and that there is an ever growing community of players out there.
I need to show that I was a hobbiest, and any of you guys that were around at that time can really help my case, and really potentially keep me from serving time in prison.
I realize that this plea to the community is on very short notice, so I beg of you all, if you still do keep in contact with any of the 'old school' players out there from OP-FOR Airsoft, please let them know that I am in dire need of your help.
If you are able to be one of the key witnesses in my case, and can attend court with me on December 1st, please get in contact with me as soon as you can. You can make a big difference in my future.
The court date is December 1st and 2nd, but you most likely will only need to be there for December 1st.
Please spread the word if possible.
