Snake Pit Postponed till further notice!

Troops,

As of this afternoon, I've decided to postpone OPSP till we find an AO whose ownership is not trying to extort money from me nor my sponsors.

Bainbridge Development Coprs., LLC, made myself and my Chief of Staff, Tyler Graybeal sign a contract, only to come up with additional demands as of yesterday morning (Mon. Apr. 23rd) indicating the following:

Good Morning John and Tyler,

A snag in the signing of the agreement for your event in June. On Monday the agreement was presented to the Chair for signature, and after the board as a whole discussed, here is what the board has asked me to present to you as their additional conditions.

1. No more than two people at anytime in any building
2. No one above 1st floor of any building
3. No snipers on the roof of any building
4. No discharge of arms inside buildings
5. No martial activities in any building, treasure seeking only


This is after their legal council who works for the State Prosecutor's Office (as he made a point to let me know that) had initially demanded that we "re-seed grass" after we're done with the event (which we argued and reformulated it to "No use of ATM nor Tracked vehicles allowed in order to preserve the integrity of the terrain). This latest round of drama, in my opinion, maybe the legal council trying to prove his worth to the board by adding these unacceptable demands. At this point, we've decided that they have demonstrated sufficient ill-will that we rather walk away than risk any potential extortion later.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may have cause, and will continue to keep you posted as we search for a reasonable AO.

We'll begin processing Paypal refunds right away.

Re: Snake Pit Postponed till further notice!

I totally agree with you John.
It's better to walk away than deal with people that go back on a deal and try to change it.
Out of the 11 years of amazing airsoft events that you have put together, has their ever been an issue with any of these things???? ....
Nope, didn't think so.
That is why we sign waivers. If their legal team was worth anything they would have spent the time making sure the waiver was in order; not ruining the event for the host, OLCMSS and participants

So disappointing. This was going to be my first Lions Claw event. Hopefully they can work it out or reschedule at another place on the East Coast.

Re: Snake Pit Postponed till further notice!

I would suggest trying to reorganize just down in Northern VA, we're much more liberal with gun laws here, besides, terrain is about the same and I am sure there has to be SOMEwhere that is good.

Do refunds include your initial 60 dollar payment?
Thanks

You guys should try and find a AO in NJ or NY, that'd make me a very happy man! Sorry to hear about these troubles

I was hoping this would be my first lion claws event. I was poking around Wikipedia today for no reason and I came across this place with development at a standstill the township may be receptive to a game.

Re: Snake Pit Postponed till further notice!

Those demands are completely ridiculous, the buildings here are huge so why should only 2 people be aloud inside. also, half of the fun in airsoft is cqb so the no discharge of arms inside is bs as well. disappointing day for Maryland. :x
