or put up good high fences with locked gates, that solves the problem of people accidentally wandering into a game and will deter people from taking refuge in your buildings.

EDIT : it would cost more but it would solve a few problems, so it may be worth it.

ya, I was thinking electrified fences with razer wire on top of them, but both of those are illegal as far as I am aware.

ya, that is barbed wire, razerwire is much more vicious.
does anyone know the legalities on how high you can make a fence, if you can put barbed wire onto it, and what the legalities about being electrified are?

and how is that relevant to this thread? Take your pointless jabbering elsewhere.

I'm sorry, I was making a suggestion to how another feild could be improved to make protection of the public easier and got somewhat off the main topic.
I agree with what venture said, go to the city and state that this will disrupt the ability of your business to run, and you would like to get an exemption if possible.

Location: my field mostly. seems that way at least.
pretty sure under halton bylaw you need a fixed, freestanding building on the property to classify as a buisiness. dont think brian has one at the field.

And I dont see how he could state that as a source of income either. Isn't that the point of being a "business"? Then he would have to keep the paperwork involved, then include that in his taxes. I dont really see that as a viable option.

And can't build one due to green belt restrictions...

I'm pooched .. land was never zoned for commercial use, it's recreational/ agricultural..

Technically I could never run a business on it ... but I would be the only one breaking the bylaw... if I did... with the firearm prohibition .. every player is at risk.. so i'ts just not worth it.

No I claim income from Games .. and from training I do as business income.. and write off the expense of all my guns ans gear as a business expense

most years I break even... last year I had a small loss .. this year .. with all the stuff I have "invested in" for my business ... it may be a loss this year again

What a great run, Brian - some really excellent games over the many years there. Thank you for all your efforts in providing this. Certainly all good things come to an end - fortunately most of us all have souveniers of a good thing.

End of an era. I've only attended a couple games at FTF, back when it was EOTEC, but enjoyed them tremendously. Thanks so much for the field and dedication to the game, and Canadian community Brian. I take solace in the fact that the closing of the field will leave you with more free time, less debt and fewer nights on the couch...until you find another one.

I second the statements of loss and sadness. I made it out to Z4, and I'll be there for FTF, but I wish I could go back again. It's a great field, and the wild turkey things that live in trees will be missed.

Hey, what's going to happen to all the displaced Ewoks from the village? Oh won't someone think of the Ewoks?!
