Introducing the newest section of Iconic Paintball, The Field Owner Chronicles! This will be done in partnership with GG Sports Park, a new paintball facility being built from the ground up in St Louis. Working directly with Dustin Loeffler, the owner of the field, we will help give an inside look at the highs and lows of building a World Class facility and all the work that goes into it. I will preface this new section with a piece from an article I wrote nearly a decade ago:
"The Local Operator, Paintball's Champion; When put as cut and dry as possible, the life-blood of this industry is the local field operator. No matter what way you try to look at it or word it, it is these champions of paintball that make it all possible. The industry lives and dies through the efforts of the local field owner."
Dustin will be writing the majority of the content in this section as he works through all the trials and tribulations of building an elite paintball facility and gives an exclusive look behind the process. From building permits and storm-water management, all the way to the final staked air bunker, he will tell it all. So without further delay, welcome to the Field Owner Chronicles.
