I'm not sure what games you are talking about. I'm quite new to this whole Airsoft thing but love the game and pretty much eveything that goes with it so I am doing something about the indoor game by opening what is a huge venue for CQB.

I have thought about doing what you mentioned but don't think I ever talked to anyone about it. If it's possible, I'll do it.

Do you remember who mentioned doing those large scale games?

I have 180 acres right now that I am dedicating 100% to an awesome Airsoft field.

It goes back a bit, I wouldn't say it drew too much attention because of the remote locations. I do recall another attempt to try to host something in an abandoned BC town.

Regardless, there are these 'abandoned' towns in the province of Sask., primarily in the South West area of Saskatoon - as such some of the Airsoft community at the time suggested using these for a large game. Best I could find was this article from the Washington Post - http://www.hartford-hwp.com/archives/44/278.html - fact is there are towns with many structures that are, basically, left to rot.

"...its hot as hell in here...yeah man it's the dry heat!...")

Seeing how you have 180+ acres, an abandoned town 200km or more away from a local large town seems a moot point...may as well build a town instead. Anything's possible. Add to the fact you likely have facilities like running water, electricity - abandoned is sort of just that - cut off.

I don't remember the specifics, and given the way some of the ideas are presented to this 'particular audience of characters', I don't think that person renewed his or her account here as a result, if you catch my drift.

Thank you for that, I'll have to read it.

I have been on that (abandoned towns) site in the past few months looking for towns as well.

Yes, on the land I have there is power as well as running water. It should be good when I'm finished building it.

These are wicked games. Wicked spots.
I've been to Mission on the ferry and CQB in Calgary, and have played the school, but I'm willing to bet that this Hospital is going to take the cake.

Everyone should try and make the summer OP. Even you guys out East.
I imagine it will probably limited but nevertheless it will be another CalCity event to be remembered.

If I could get in on a road trip I'd be there in a ... well... however long it takes to drive out there... or fly.

Looks good man. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get out there and see it in person. I've been wanting to get out that way and see what the job/living situation is like that ways anyway, this seems like the perfect "excuse"

These looked so good I had to post em. I was going to work my way through sask. as well, but there were just too many!! And if you're hosting a Canadian Irene, I'd be ready to put together a convoy from Ontario for that...whenever that happens

And yeah, I know I'm dreaming with regards to playing on an abandoned CF base...but come on...you gotta admit it'd be pretty cool.

This is a four floor building, that picture was taken in the basement so it looks rough because no one has been down there for years and the paint is peeling off the walls. I am in the middle of preping the main floor for this weekends game. The top two floors are done and ready at this point. In fact the RCMP from *across Canada* are here all week using the facility. I had a great talk with Mark (RCMP) from Ottawa yesterday about the building and he thought it was absolutley great. Other officers said the only way it could be better was if they could actually stay on-site overnight.

The building is not rotting, it is made of cement, however when there is no heat in a building for years, the paint does peel.

There will be lots of pics up on all forums after this weekend so you will see what it looks like after I have made it playable.



Thanks Beazer, looking forward to it.


Gunk, you should check out the July game. I will be posting details not to long from now. All four floors will be playable, 60,000 sq ft.
