The NEW Ruins Airsoft Field Coming Soon!!!

GOOD NEWS!!!


(The picture is 3 years old)


We just got back from scouting out our new fields. Yes, I did say fields. Plural. The property belongs to the family of one of our members who also lives there and he has gotten the go ahead/permission to play on the property. We need to run our plans thru the property owner to get the green light on structures and modifications. We do not anticipate anything holding us back.

We are going to offer 2 fields of different types and terrains. The field in red is about 10 acres and it will feature a town located in the center of the field with paths radiating from it that snake thru the thick brush and grasses. It will have bunkers and foxholes at the various path intersections plus other features still on the drawing board. The terrain is mostly flat with 6' tall weeds and patches of trees. The only elevation difference is the woods in the southeast corner which is about 4-6' lower than the field and a low flat creek bed that runs from the southeast corner to the center of the field. That SE woodline extends most of the south and westerly boundaries. From google earth it seems like a plain ol' field but we walked it today and it will offer some dynamic play for 60+ players. We are going to mow some preliminary paths tomorrow and we plan to play it this weekend.


This is a preliminary plan for the red section of the map.



The field in blue was going to be our primary field but after scouting it its damn steep and the woods are thick. We will probably plan a Hamburger Hill scenario or something of the like for it.

The orange area will be parking and the green area will be the staging area.

ALSO, I would like to inform everyone that we will feature a "proshop". Part of our group will be starting an airsoft store, Athens Airsoft, here in Athens and they will vend at our events. Athens Airsoft will have ammo, guns, parts and all the other things one would need to play plus an onsite gun tech.

The Ruins Raiders are taking the new field to the next level. We love this sport and we love hosting events. Once we get the field finished we plan to offer night games atleast once a month if not every other weekend. Also, we will have major theme type events (like Bioshock2), possibly some milsims and 2 day event/campouts.

SWEET! Cant wait for the new field. When I saw it I was like, "Its just an old field". But after walking it, there is a lot of potential and should be some excellent game play.

THANK YOU JESUS!!!!!!! I was afraid we wouldn't have anymore games until 2010 by the ruins raiders. This new field sounds like it will just as good, if not better than the old school. Hoooo-rah!

When you say that you are going to play there this weekend do you mean like an openplay ruins event or just for the raiders.

Yes but I want to remind you, there are no buildings yet. This game is going to fund our construction program. So the more people show up and the more events we hold, the bigger and better the field will be. We can't do this without the airsoft community and with your help we will make one of the most kick a$$ fields in Ohio!

I'll definitely have to make some trips down from Columbus!! Wish you guys all the very best luck.

Sure this is already done, but I definitely recommend consulting a lawyer (preferably one that'll do it pro bono for you ). That way you can be sure you have all your ducks in a row, so to speak.

You better believe that D.E.L.T.A. will be coming out and playing in the future! Glad to see you have a field again and I look forward to seeing the Raiders make it into something awesome. Good luck!

Athens is a far drive, but if you can back up half of what you are saying you are going to do... Then I am in. I am all for 2 day MILSIM events.

I'm happy to see you guys found a place. Athens is the closest place for me to play and it's good that the area will have a well run site. Also good to hear you are going to offer a little "pro shop" for players. I'll be out to join you this fall.

Yeah we want to start to build the village as soon as possible to make the game play as good as possible. I can honestly say that it will be as good as if not better than the Ruins.
Yes the Ruins was a great CQB environment, but we were never able to build it up to the level that we wanted. Also with the field fees that we were charging were going straight to the owners pocket. Now those funds are going to the field (where they should have been going all along). The Raiders and I appreciate the Airsoft community's continued support as we transition to our new home. I personally cant wait to trade BBs and war stories with you guys.
