Thread: New England AO Days Consolidation Discussion

  1. #1

    Lightbulb UPDATE!

    This top message will remain in flux to bring you changes in information regarding the NE AO Day.

    All of this information will remain flexible until the official announcement thread.

    Place: Cape Cod Paintball (Pending discussion with Field Owner)
    Date: September 28th or October 12th VOTE HERE

    We are currently working on ideas for events and prizes. The idea of a PIF raffle has been proposed, and we are pursuing other avenues to get prizes donated. The only event which has been discussed so far is a 3-Man state based tourney.

    Event ideas are welcome. Prize donations are very welcome. Please contribute any of your thoughts to this thread.

    Check back at this header from time to time for updates.

    I'd go to a CT AO meet. I missed NJ AO II b/c of prior engagements.

    i won't speak for NH and vermont, but I consider us in maine to be quite normal


    ME or NH would work for me (and i could probably bring a bunch of friends and convert them)

    Big NJ turnout for you?

    Hey Patron,
    Get us the details as soon as you can. Since a whole bunch of you came down to NJ AO II day, maybe we can return the favor and road trip up to support you guys.

    Why not have it in Florida!

    Come on guys, NH or MA please. It IS a New England AO Day after all. I am all for having everyone come, but you have to remember ALL of NE, and try for a central location that is fair for everyone.

    Important points to consider:

    1. Central location: (Eastern Mass seems most convenient to majority of players from Mass, RI, Southern NH and ME coast)
    2. Fields: A mix of woods and concept fields would be nice for all players (Adventure Games is a great field, but almost exclusively woods, Don't know about Cape Cod)
    3. Price: BYOP would be best, any fields allow this?

    Did the NJ day play at an organized field or was is an organized outlaw place, just curious?

    yes me and Patron god of pirates took those into account and are currently searching in northern MA, Southern NH and areas we think would work. Cape Cod has both woods and speedball but is a little out of the way. we are working on a desicion, hopefull yby next week.

    I'll probably be able to go to the NE AO Day if it's on a Sunday some time in the fall. Cape Cod Paintball would be an awesome place to have it as they have tons of fields there. If you are looking for a BYOP field in Mass, the only one I know of is Friendly Fire in Upton. I was waiting for one of these to pop up - I just wouldn't be able to make a couple hundred mile trip this summer. cwuchu@hotmail.com - you can email me more about it if you'd like or if you'd like to find out more about FF or CC. I'd say you could put my name down for attending one if it's remotely close (somewhere in mass or RI - NH is pushing it a little but probably)

    I vote Cape Cod. It's WAAAY far away from me but it's a great field and southern NH already had TK visit us and AG last year, so we should spread the love. Sundays are best because sometimes I have XC races on Saturdays in the fall.

    My vote is eastern Mass. I'm not from that area, so I can't recommend any good fields though. That's not to say that if the NE AO Day ends up in NH, I won't be there (I've traveled up to NH for a single day of paintball). I think Cape Cod sounds good, but it'd just be difficult for a lot of people, as it's out of the way.
    There are three kinds of people in the world: Those who can count, and those who can't.

    The more I keep hearing, Cape Cod seems the best place factoring all members, conditions, etc.

    As for what day…. I don’t care.

    Now for the NH already had TK visit thing…. That was not an AO thing, sorry. That was done by Adventure Games and took much planning and prep work…. It was not an AO Day, it was an AGD thing.

    If AGP was the most logical place for an AO day for New England (which it appears it is not) I would not care how many times Tom went there, or how many AO Days were held there…. We all share by GOING and having it at a place that is fair for all.

    well i would have to aim for central-eastern mass then because that way i wouldnt have to have my mom drive so far(and we wouldnt have to wake up at 2 instead of 4)

    and then i could have my mom stop by boston paintball in boston and haggle off my tippmann and such


    hehe ill bring my cocker with me too...

    Detailiods

    Cape Cod Paintball is definitely one of the front runners at this point. The slightly out of the way location is he only thing it has going against it.

    I'd like to here from some Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont people about the location.

    Every field we've looked into so far has it's ups and downs. BYOP, but no speedball fields. Cheep paint, but no all day air. I intend to talk to the field owners about group rates etc., but we are going to have to make a compromise on something.

    1stDeadeye, we are working very quickly so we can get details up. I know from experience, the further away you are the more notice you need. I would love to see allot of the Jersey peeps here at NE AO Day.

    So let us know if you have any good locals to consider, and also how you feel about Cape Cod, or any other recommended locations. Also, chime in on the types of activities you'd like to see. I've been milling over the idea of a state based 3-man tourney and some other things.

    I'm good for cape cod and i can bring 4 other people, 3 of us shooting mags. I just started a 5 man team for a local feild League. we havent started yet and this would be a great practice for us.

    Team practice? Interesting concept... I thought AO Days were for fun and camaraderie for fellow mag owners and AO members.......

    I was only razzing you.....

    This is going against the whole planning of this thread...but Rogue in Maine would make an excelent feild for this...2 speedball and a piss load of woods. I do think this would be worth the extra time driving for other people (Actually, more like less for me lol )

    But no really..Sounds great. I will most likely be in, espesially if it is BYOP.

    Dansim is right about this. It is the best place in MA. $65 for a 2000 case of team colors plus the ability to do 4500 fills. Early October would be good.
