AG Paintball - Under new ownership
 
Stopped in at AG Paintball's open house. Snow on the ground and no playing going on right now, but wow... A lot of things are happening over there.

The house is gone! The fields are changed and there is a major logging operation going on over there to open up and rebuild all the fields.

So we hung out (Luke and I) for a while, chatted with the new owner, had a look around, etc.

For those not completely in the loop, Alex, the prior owner, was stuck between a rock and a hard place. He owned the company, but not the land. So any field improvements he made, he did at his own peril knowing that the lease could have been canceled or not renewed any time. So the fields suffered due to that conflict in interest.

The new owner has purchased the land and owns everything outright. Lots and lots of improvements are being made as we speak!

The new sport shop looks great.

I even bought a new season pass for myself. Hope to play a few more weekends this year there. Maybe we can even hold an "old school" paintball event for those that want to show up.

Just thought I'd give folks a heads up on what I saw and that I'm excited to see the changes.

Hey, me too.....by airplane:ROTFL:

It’s exciting to see fields being revamped instead of closing like a lot of others;)

I can do that day trip a few times, maybe even drag the wife. She says she is playing again this year.

Really liked the old field - would definitely travel for MCB games there.

That explains a lot. Maintenance had gone way down the last couple of years. And with it, a lot of the regular player base...

Hope Aric can bring back the glory days.

Awesome! My folks live in Concord so I'll have to do an OSG/AG visit in the spring.

Yes that's the place. I still have pics of that somewhere (Holy crap! That was 10 years ago now?!)

Glad to see good things happening there. I haven't been there in at least a year or more. Always liked it, and it's where I attended my first ever MCB get together at one of the annual big games around '04/'05.
