Cousins Paintball Being Shut Down/Forced to Leave

Brookhaven sets crosshairs on Coram paintball field

For 27 years, Long Island paintball lovers have come to Cousins Paintball in Coram to spread out and play on 88 heavily-wooded acres.

Those acres became part of the Overton Nature Preserve several years ago, when the Town of Brookhaven purchased the land. Now, Cousins says it is being forced to leave.

Brookhaven officials say the land is a wildlife sanctuary that is necessary for groundwater regeneration. Town Supervisor Mark Lesko says that the playing field backs up to residential neighborhoods, which he says could be potentially hazardous.

Town officials say they tried to work with Cousins to find another town property to move to, but they say it just didn\'t work out.

The owners of Cousins say that finding a private parcel of land won\'t be easy, but say they\'ll take their best shot. They say some 50 people will be out of work if they have to close.

The video can be downloaded here:

Video ends saying Cousins will be in court tomorrow to fight the eviction.

It'll be sad to see that place go. A lot of history there.

This is sad, Cousins has had that field for a long time. The argument the town is using is similar to the one used against PEV's (Aldie, VA.). Luckily he was able to disprove their bs sciene, hopefully someone at Cousins will take a look at the PEV's case and maybe that can help them.

If there is a contract in place between Cousins and and the city, how can the city refuse the rent? That smells of a lawsuit....

I think I know the guy that used to run the one in New Jersey. He helped us build a house not that far from where I live. I actually sold a lot of his old stock on here a while back for him.

Anyone know his name? I wonder If I've got the right guy.

Cousins Paintball is the same people who were Generation-E Sports (Gen-E), responsible for a huge portion of the US distribution of the Matrix before Dye purchased it. Not only did they popularize the regular guns, but also distributed the Toxic, NYX, and Ironmen editions. Support Paul Sattler and Toxic Dave!
