Village faux/Fake village

I had this idea, even passed it by Drake, would anyone be in support of having say a "village" for airsoft? When I was talking to Drake, we arrived at a conclusion: it'd be nice, but we need the land for it. This is just something I want to ask the Quebecois crowd; but would you play in that if it existed?


By "village," I mean simple structures such as 10'x6'x7' cobbled together by 2x4s and ply wood, maybe be two levels high (some of them) spaced apart with windows, maybe add a defense or two.


I know of course it'll take land and the whole 10 yards, but I'm just curious: quoi vous poncé de ça?



*disclaimer* im not saying i have access to the land or the materials

Maybe you should put this in Quebec section, or Ontario section, or wherever you are.
I don't understand why people post location-specific stuff in the general sections.

There's no question to ask. Of course we'd all love to play in such place.

Hell I was in Disney World this summer and saying "holy fuck that'd be awesome to play here!" (there's a section in Epcot with recreations of various places in the world, including Morocco which would be awesome).

*Disclaimer: I don't own Disney World

Well just for example I build a new deck last summer its 17' by 15'. Mostly 2x4's for braces and 1x6 for planks. The deck cost $1700 in lumber. Does not include harware. Lumber is god awful expensive. You will need pressure treated to survice QC weather.

Plywood's cost mostly depends on the thickness and if it is veneered or not. Assume about $15 per sheet at least. If all you want to so is build a barricade that stands it could be done for a lowish price. But as soon as you want to inside the structures you have to over build and have them inspected and what not.

There's a few already, but in paintball places...

Mirabel Paintball (quite nice, but small, linear, and @#"/$%? staff who ended the games about 2 hours early),
Vodoo Paintball (never personally played there, but apparently it's great),
Xtream Paintball (small, linear, decent for small skirmishes, service is ok but if paintballers are coming expect to be pushed away),
Maxpaintball (never personally played there, but apparently it's ok for small skirmishes and that's it)

Unfortunately building such setup (for airsoft only) would cost too much versus potential revenue. Unless someone can convince Peladeau to give us 1M$ (that is after the Nordiques are back, obviously). Unless someone has contacts to get the equipement at cost price, but even then it'd be a fair amount.

The british got this:

If anyone can get such facility for us, I promise I'll be your slave till the end of times.

Laisse Péladeau ramener une équipe de hockey a Québec first off all !

Thats it, what we need to do is run a Quebec lottory pool. Unless millions are won proceeds go to building "dream" (depending on amount won) airsoft field.
