New CQC Facility

Hey everyone, I just wanted to ask you all a question about my CQC facility in Saskatchewan.

At this point I am now aware that I have one of the only multi-level CQC facilities in Canada. When I opened it I thought there would be many more like it across the country but in talking with players from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, I now know different. It has three floors and approx 7000 sqft of space on those three floors.

I am now in the initial stages of opening a much much bigger CQC facility. This building that I am looking at now has four floors, and somewhere between 55,000, and 70,000 sqft. It's big.

Here's my question, If I open this new big facility would anyone from eastern Canada play here if there were big events taking place here? Would you make the trip?

Thank you.

While I applaud your ambition in this endeavor, are there really enough players in your surrounding area to sustain such a large indoor facility? There are several cqc facilities in eastern/central Ontario and Western Quebec, that would probably stop most of us from driving 18 hours to play inside.

Yeah true that.

Toronto needs a dedicated airsoft field.

If you are planning to buy property, you gotta do it soon though a lot of companies are buying land to build condos.

CamoGames runs a an awesome operation. Having been there recently I have to say hes a great guy and an amazing host. It will be a pleasure to play in Melville again. I look forward to the next trip.
You can always count on the Saskatoon guys to make the trip.

Yeah, definitely a good time. Nice arena, nice people... what more could you ask for? The multiple levels really add to the whole experience. I highly recommend anyone interested in this place to go check it out

Thank you TokyoSeven and Maverick0 for the kind words, it was a pleasure having all the players from Winnipeg, Saskatoon, and Regina play here. And I also thank the rest of you for your thoughts on this as well.

ex-royal, as I've mentioned, players from Regina (1 1/2 hours) Saskatoon (4 hours) and Winnipeg ( 5+ hours) have already played here. There is also a group from Calgary (8-9 hours) playing on the 1st and 2nd of March, so it is not only the surrounding area that is playing here. Don't get me wrong, I know what you're saying, it is a very long way from eastern Canada to play here, that's why I posed the question..."would you make the trip"

To address some of the other comments. First off, the playing area that TokyoSeven and Mavcerick0 are talking about is the building I have now. It is three floors with 7000 sqft of playing area. Secondly, I am not building a play area. I am thinking very hard about buying a retired Hospital that is approx 60,000 sqft of space on four floors. This is why I asked the question. "If I build it, who will come" I would like to know how far people would drive, or fly to play here if there were large events (100 - 150 players)
put on here.

I am also going to be using this facility for RCMP, Fire Fighting, and possible SWAT training as well. Some of those contracts are already in place with the city.

testtube, can you tell me a little about the Mill or is there a website I can look at? is it three, four, five floors?

Thank you all for your replys.

testtube, I just read about the Mill on here and watched a video. It looks like a great place and the video was pretty cool too. Is there mutiple floors there, or just one, and how many sqft in there?
