This is rough. If it wasn't for Cousins and tankers like TJ Allcot, my passion for paintball certainly wouldn't have burned as bright for as long as it did.

I really hope they have a legal team that can battle this.

I posted on her facebook, and like many others had my comment deleted. Hopefully with enough community support this gets resolved!

How can you afford playing at Cousin's regularly? Their quotes were atrocious last time I checked. Don't know about Coram, but the Staten Island field became terrible - loose on safety and with overpriced paint.

It's bad for paintball when a field closes - I just don't see why the owners are revered.

It's about the field more than the business, and this lady sounds like a witch with a capital B, with some ulterior motive.

Staten island itself has some personal issuEs to look at before we even begin talking about the field there. Close to the city costs are higher, land is at a premium and when no headway can be made against that then people tend to lose interest and motivation.

80 a case at the field is 20% lower than their nearest competition, the safety record was fine from what I understand, and 25 for entry and 10 for all day air isn't unreasonable considering what it costs just to pay taxes on a field that size on Long island.
And the cousins crew has helped to bring paintball to where it is today.

An update From facebook


http://www.facebook.com/pages/Paintb...87315184681902



OK. Here is the latest update from the court case today. I am extremely pleased to let you guys know, the politicians are starting to listen. The case was adjourned by the town until next week. We have had several productive conversations and it looks like we are making progress. We will use the next couple of days to sit with the town and determine if there is a way to satisfy all parties.
Please know that this progress is a direct result of your efforts, your passion for our game, and your standing up for what is right. Continue to build support for our page. We want to continue this momentum while at the same time, leaving a space for a constructive solution.
We are overwhelmed with the support we have received locally, nationally, and even globally. I speak for the entire Cousins family when I say we are blessed to call each and every one of you a friend.

Since the nice lady stated that they have not payed rent on the site since 2007 the township should probably pay back the 400,000 in non-rent checks they mistakenly cashed.

Connie made a statement on her Facebook page:

To the Supporters of Cousins Paint Ball:

I have worked with Cousins Paint Ball since early 2007 when the Town of
... Brookhaven first preserved the property. When land is designated a
preserve it can only be used for passive recreational pursuits, that’s
the law.

That is why I worked with the owners to find an alternative location. I
not only sat down at the table with them many, many times but personally
went out in the field looking for viable Town owned land for them to
relocate. I am a big supporter of paintball, my sons play. I would
like to see them remain in the Town. However, as was clear to everyone
but Dean, they cannot stay where they are. It is simply against the
law.

... The Town has given Dean extension, after extension to provide him with
ample opportunity to find another location. It has been 5 years, and
Dean has failed to act, until yesterday the day before his day in court,
when he asked those who enjoy the sport to contact me. Perhaps a better course of action would have been to locate his facility, which provides so much joy to so many people, on a site that is not a preserve.
Dean has failed to act in a responsible way, failed all the people who love to play, and failed to pay the town for running a business on its land. He now owes the Town $96,000 for use and occupancy.

For the sake of those who enjoy playing paintball I will continue to work with Cousins Paint Ball to help find them a location on which they can legally operate.
