Bailey's Battlefield is shut(ting) down?

I was reminded of a very short-lived bunker system called BallWall (or something like that) and was looking for info or pictures on them when I ran across this sale page stating Bill is shutting down Bailey's Battlefield.

Quote:
Below is a list of iteams for sale. I will be closing my field this summer for good. No more Panzer Attack. No more open play or private groups. I will be selling all my gear including, guns, goggles, tanks, bulk co2 and n2 fill stations, self service n2 fill stations,Props for big games, gp medium military tents with poles, radar chronies, 55 gallon barrels, plastic pallets, big artillary propany cannons, a 69 piece ball wall field. and more. below is a list and some pictures
I guess this is old news, since he says he'll be closing it "this summer", and we're in November. To me, it's a sad revelation. I've only managed a few games at Bill's over the years, but I had fun every time I went. And it's just sad to see someone who's been such a figure in southern Missouri paintball get out of the sport like this.




On a side note, what started this all was thinking of those Ball Wall bunkers. If I had any inkling of wanting to start a field, or even stock an outlaw field, I'd so pick up those Ball Wall bunkers he's got up for sale. They're thicker wall than chemical barrels and nigh indestructible. They'd last you forever.

I had a friend who's since moved to Arizona that always loved the SmakZone scenarios. I'd like to go, but as always, real life > paintball, so I make no promises.

Hey, what fields are there in Springfield these days? I come down that way for work every once in a while.

Can do, bud. Do any of those fields have handy-dandy websites? I know where SmakZone's is at (the link for Operation Eminent Storm is here, btw), but feeling lazy and don't want to Google them.

Welcome! | Paintball Outpost

For the one in Springfield. Shamoo, who are you going to OES with? I'll have a group headed there from Springfield if you want to tag along.

Yes, I was on one of the Army teams that won it all. If you'd like to play with my group, make sure you sign up for the Contra team at OES.
