Dead field

As a Land surveyor I travel all over the state of Connecticut, today brought me to East Hampton surveying a large piece of land adjacent to the old Strategy field. So I walked around it for a bit and saw a bunch of the old bunkers and such we all used for years. It's all falling down and just a mess now. Thankfully the last event I Played there was one of Slims awesome stock class games. RIP

I had gone to the field after the last owners tried to take over and reopen it. I will tell you that I'm not surprised that it didn't work out after talking to them. It only took about 5 minutes of conversation to figure that out.

Yes it seemed to only be run well when Slim had events there and he ran the show on those days.

Strategy Plus

Back in the day Slim and I were field managers. We had no say in what went on as far as owner management of the field. James Iulo senior aged on and passed leasing the Strategy Plus namesake to folks that could not make it work in the long run. It's a shame when the field you started off in, and for me 1984 dies because of failure to promote correctly the sport of paintball. When the original land owner passed on we hoped his son would embrace the original dream. That failed to materialize.
