Contact Horton's Heros on ASC or go to the NIA forums listed in the BC Communtites section. He is not that far away from you guys (relatively speaking) and he may be able to help you out.

Talk to him then, best bet.
I had close to 200 photos just of the ferry when JOC went down there this year. Problem was I accidentally deleted ALL of them.
I have around 40 minutes of video of our spectacular debacle and i should get them posted somewhere soon.

If you can get this set up and scoped out that would be amazing.

omg... MOUT event. I'd be pretty willing to do it.

An even greater incentive for out of province players (especially coming from eastern Canada) is subsidized entry fees... awwwwwww yeah.

Ok so I went down to the ghost town today during the rain and snapped some pics. I will be creating a website along with a map for people to see what the area generally looks like. Some of the buildings obviously cannot be entered due to dangers of collapse but those would be marked off with red ribbon. There is also a single piece of private property (unoccupied) which is sort of almost in the middle of the play area which would be ribboned off as well.

Road Down 1 - Single Lane and Kind of steep


Entrance to the gravel pit - This on one side, the ghost town on the other


Looking left in Gravel Pit - Overgrown with trees


Looking right in Gravel Pit - I was standing on the dirt pile at the entrance


One of the many fallen old buildings - Unsafe ones will be ribboned off


One of the many standing buildings - Some still have glass which must be covered for safety reasons - This building is all off by itself next to the one above


Roads are good - Road infront of the building above are like this all throughout the park - to the left is an old cemetary which will be ribboned off as well


Grandstand - just past the cemetary if someone wants a band or show off


Another standing cabin with glass and a locked door


Another collapsed cabin off in the trees - many hidden old buildings and most are not safe to enter though


What is left of the ghost town - just past the grandstand


Close to the river - some of the cabins are within 7 feet of the river bank so players will need to be careful in areas like this


One of the other standing/rebuilt cabins - this is the one closest to the river


Inside the cabin above - cant go into the loft but two of the windows are open for good firing positions - window overlooking the river (not shown) has glass


Another of the many collapsed cabins - must be careful not to push the walls over lol


Another of the rebuilt/standing buildings - Lots of windows and entry points


Inside the cabin above


Another rebuilt/standing building - warning low ceiling lol


Inside cabin above


Another standing building - this one might be off limits though


The Private Property - about 100 feet from the entrance into the gravel pit, between it and the ghost town. Property is only as large as you see in the pic with the lawn. No one lives there.

I've left out many pics of the trees (THICK!) and the various roads that criss cross the area and I forgot to take pics of the 11 campsites although they are really close to the playing area.

Hortons Here,

If everything is as you say with the owners of the area being for us playing on there then count us in. We would love to see something official in writing saying that we have permission to play there though.

Can you post a link to where it is exactly on google maps?

We can help with any area but sounds like registration and game judging would be the big ones. We'll talk more but if it really is a go then we can make a section on the NIA site and start to give out specific jobs and form a sort of committee that would be dedicated to helping with the event. We have a few ex military guys that are fantastic at making long running and milsim (not just lots of games) scenarios.

I work for a kids camp so I am busy for the summer but when were you thinking of running this?

right now there is no set date and it is not 100% official yet as there is only one person left to get permission from. My uncle runs the society to restore and look after the ghost town and it was even his idea. He is also creating a map of the playing area as well.

The last person wants me to create a webpage and try to get signatures for people who will go and at least get 50 or so. The money raised through registration fees and such will mostly be going to the Quesnel Forks Society to help restore it and also clean up afterwards.

As for a time holding this I was thinking the first weekend in June but I'm open to a better suggestion. Towards the middle and end of June it gets pretty rainy and in May it is way too cold at nights and there is even snow.

Plan for a late July or mid-late August if you wan to have a game there this year.

I can say that a number of guys from my area would go for a unique experience like this. And many more form Alberta and farther east are likely to go as well.

I would be more than willing to help, but my distance from the site is not ideal (I'm about 9+ hours away).

Yes it would be open camos.

And this would be taking place NEXT year not this one. If there is a certain time of next year then let me know.

So far I have heard July....

I'd be in for coming, be expensive but with enough of us it wouldn't be too bad.
