Ottawa PSI closed??

Hey gang, a local baller friend of mine went to PSI tonight and apparently PSI is closed? Something about the lease not getting renewed? Does anyone have any info?

I hope this isn't true, otherwise winter is gonna be long and boring

Bailiff did a lockout after landlord distrained... Assets will be held by landlord who will sell to satisfy rental arrears.

Sad day... I hope John is o.k...

Oh no... I'm so sorry to hear this! I've been reading how the paintball economy was dwindling down and I guess I was hoping this didn't affect us in our area, but it looks like not even the great O-Town is safe from it.

Hopefully this won't affect the folks at PSP or the other Proshops in their network, such as Brian

So he didn't pay his rent and got booted?
I'm wondering what the actual cost was to run it, minus personal wages.
I just don't see paintball anywhere being a good business decision.
unless you have free rent/land and don't pay your "employees" you can't make a living off of it especially in our small demographic

well, I don't know this for a fact, but for a landlord to distrain they need a cause, and non-payment of rent is usually the cause. I believe the note may have even said something to that effect?

Well that just blows! I got to play there only once. Wasn't PSI the only indoor field in the ottawa area?

CJ, guess you'll be coming by MTL more often this year?

Do those individuals holding memberships have any recourse? I'm asking on behalf of Elmo and his friends.

well, in a perfect world some generous folks could just rent it and make it into the Canadian MCB embassy

Seriously though, what are you guys going to do for the winter season? I was under the impression PSI was the only indoors field in the area?
