Aw man, I had really hoped to hit FTF once I got my full license. Well that'll never happen. Brian, any hopes of finding another similar haunt? I keep hearing about how awesome your outdoor games are.

Sorry to hear about the news. The field has served a lot of good memories to the GTA players.

I am sure that there will be a venue for us to hit in the future.

Remember that the venue is only half of a good game, but it is also the Organizer(s) and the players that makes the game.

Not worried one bit...

Good Luck!

Cheers,
Stryker

This action is not against me or FTF .. it is simply an expansion of the municipality borders for controlled activities. When I started FTF I was warned by the By-law officer that this would happen eventually ..

I just hoped that I would get another season before it did.

So Brian are you going to sell the land, and buy somewhere else?

Not so easy... the land has been for sale for a long time... but being in the Green belt but outside of Acton proper... no development is permitted, at this time

The land is locked up... for now... but in time .. it will be very valuable.. current price 12 million... wanna buy?

halton region has had these plans on the books for a while. if i remember correctly its quite large and covers a far spread of what is predominantly farmland around acton. its supposed to be part of the greenbelt program. dont get me started on the greenbelt.

still shitty to hear.

guess i need to pick up the slack next year

Can't fight progress ... you've got to build bypasses!!

They had public consultation.. which I did not attend... my ability to continue to play silly bugger on the land I'm sure would not put a crack in the "public safety" argument.

anyway I'm on the lookout for a new place... I have access to 170 acres of trailed bushland .. but.. the land is located near Brockville a bit of a hike..

You'd have to go in with a shotgun every other week and clear out the hobos and hippy communes that would pop up.
