"Outlaw" doesn't refer to breaking the law so much as it refers to playing a non sanctioned /regulated field..with use of your own rules that don't follow the normal insurance policy guidelines legit fields hae to follow... You can have permission to use land/property and still be playing "outlaw" ball..

I live around New Orleans and I would love to be able to play at the abandoned six flags theme park. It's been empty since Katrina but all of the rides are still just like they were beforehand. There's tons of videos of the abandoned park on YouTube

Another factor that never seems to be considered when it comes to outlaw is liability. If someone gets hurt, the game organizer isn't the only one whose going to be standing in front of a judge. Depending on the circumstances, it could be all the participants.
If you're going to roll the dice and play on property without permission or proper insurance, then be prepared for consequences far beyond a fine and confiscated equipment.

We're still taking about this? Wow. Cool
Doc's example is exactly what I had in mind when I thought of this thread. Clearing it with the owner of the property and making sure who you have playing respects the place for what it is, even if it is going to be torn down.
When I first started playing, there was an abandoned sewage treatment plant we had found. Many games were played there. We were young and the town was small so we were able to bend the rules a bit. I think someone got a warning from the police there once and that was it. No charges.
Slim is right however. This is risky business. We don't need any bad press for this sport. The intention was never to encourage trespassing or vandalism, but instead encourage "outlaw" style games with permission of the property owner. There's much more than that to consider when trying to organize something like this.
I met a guy recently who had inherited a piece of property with some abandoned buildings on it and was going to have a party and play there with his friends. I found myself being nostalgic and being a little jealous as well. That can't really be done much anymore unless you own it.
Urban exploring implies a non-organized aspect though. It was just the best description I could think of when trying to find and play some of these places.
Still, the stories here are a good read and fun to think about

To add to the topic though, I once played at a different abandoned mental hospital area in central MA with 4-5 small buildings over a half mile stretch of closed road. It was a blast, with two teams starting at either end of the road, we played capture the flag with the flags being in the two buildings furthest apart. It was always exciting walking down the road not knowing whether the opposition was defending their base or stalking along the sides of the road. I must admit the buildings were a bit sketchy and dangerous though. I believe the area is a wildlife sanctuary now, haven't been there in years.

Found this old thread today and thought of an additional idea...
Has anyone ever considered playing in a building that is scheduled for demolition? In Huntsville, we had a huge mall that was still in use (not abandoned) but the land was bought by a big developer i think, and they tore the entire mall down to build e new somethingorother (still under construction). I'm kicking myself now at the missed opportunity, because the entire mall was in use up until a few months prior to demolition, so there wouldn't have been the concern of structural safety of the building or broken glass, etc.
Anyway, i bet there are other places around the country where perfectly good buildings are being torn down. One could try to talk the owner of such a property into allowing one big game before it gets torn down. One that came to mind is I think the Georgia Dome in Atlanta is scheduled for demolition...
