Just waiting to see what they have to say about it at this point.
I've also been checking out information about insurance for a field. Lawfully is this required even if you are just running a private operation? The few people I know locally who would be attending with me are all trustworthy friends so we've got no fears of sueing each other or anything like that. As a LAN event organizer I've looked at event insurance before, but I have a feeling that's going to be rather different compared to an insurance policy for an airsoft field.
Bottom line, I've got two potential locations I'm working on right now. If the owner(s) are ok with their use I want to make sure that I'm also taking care of any legal requirements while it's a private field. One day in the future provided the field owner is OK with it and that the cost of insurance isn't astronomical I'd definately be interested in openning up something for local use by people from the ASC community too (got a lot to learn before that's going to be possible though).
For now though it looks like I've got to "bite the steering wheel" so to speak and make a 2 hour drive to the closest nearby fields if I want to do anything seriously. Hopefully I'll be able to get my feet wet this coming weekend at TTAC3, then I was thinking about checking out the games at FR on the August 5th/6th weekend.
We've got places to play out your way.
