That's one of the reasons we like airsoft and not paintball, operating costs are WAY lower

Obviously i meant Calgary Players.

I dont. Im talking about new airsofters getting ripped off. If the price wouldnt dissuade them from the sport, his attitude most certainly would.

EDIT: The second facility that i mentioned earlier is owned by the same people (I just found out). That facility is for paintball whereas Larry's facility is for Laser Tag and Airsoft. So maybe we could go to the other facility and ask who owns that business and see if we can file a complaint with the owner. I would HATE to find out that the owner is Larry.

thanks for clearing this up.

but if some fat guy gives me bad advice i would end up correcting him. I think you guys in calgary should all aproach him and discuss field costs let say a membership and get him down to 15$-10$ a game. You can also discuss prices on AEG's and also set up a deal where (members) get good prices. I say you guys are lucky for having an indoor cqb where you live

but, once a fat man gets spoon feed $ all hes going to say is "more!"

Been done before, he has no interest in it whatsoever.

As a long time Admin for the Calgary clubs I do agree that Lasertrek/Larrys advice has always been lackluster/incorrect. However he does provide the only indoor facility in Calgary that we can play at.
For the most part we are running self sufficiently without him. When we run the nights we run the nights. We arrive, pay him and do our own thing.

While his buisness practices sometimes are a little odd, don't anyone kid themselves if they owned there own facility, your in it to make a buck. We've tried to talk to him about it before but it's fallen on deaf ears.

And yes Boot, the second facility is also owned by the same group Larry @ Harry of CTF (Last I heard) Before Lasertrek (Pre 2001) we used to play indoor airsoft on the dirt paintball field.

Local paintball field where we play during winter raised their price from 10$ to 25$ over a few years, honestly I don't have a problem with that.

If we ever got the same attitude as described in the thread however...

sounds good- but who pays for all the wood and lumber to make the buildings? dont get me wrong we have plenty of 'free' fields too, great for bush battles and such, but a CQB field has to be more than dirt mounds and pallets in my books We have ruins, shacks, towers and bunkers and those aint cheap

That paintball field hasnt ever been cleaned since it opened. There's dried paint and paintballs there that look like they came out of jesus's paintball marker. Theres more paint and paintballs in the dirt than soil. And that ungodly mixture sticks to anything that touches it. I would never play airsoft there, though ive played paintball there a few times. That place is filthy but the staff attitude is a little better than Larry's.

Actually all but 2 fields in NB are owned by our players, and the ones not owned by our players are not PB fields either.
