we did talk to Jeb William, the person that is in charge of the NDGFD right now, and there are a lot of reasons why. 1) we do not pay to play on the land 2) we disturb hunters when they are hunting 3) we leave trash behind whenever we play 4) we paint up all of the signs whenever we play. First of all, he is generlizing for all of the paintballers. The people that I go with NEVER leave trash and we NEVER paint up any of the signs. I just don't like it how he is generlizing for all paintballers, i know that people do it but he is saying that everyone does it. As for how many people do come, we usually have at least 15 people.

Its just a place for people to relax. Paintballers started playing down there about 10 years ago and for the most part have been very courteous of the other patrons of the area. There were a few incidents here and there of it getting out of hand but far fewer than the problems they have had with the ATV and off roader crowd.
I don't think Assassin is mad about being kicked off the land but more that its just the PB crowd which is being singled out. All in all they took up a very small area within the desert.
That is just my knowledge of the situation and I hope it does get resolved because its really the only known outlaw field in the Bismarck area.

No matter how you slice it, what reasons you give that you should be allowed, it's NOT your land to do with as you please.
Like JKLNHYD said, be glad all they did was kick you out.
Again, instead of sitting in this thread whining about how your group should have special privileges stand up and do something about it. If you talk to Jeb and he allocates a chunk of land for your use it may end up that you and your group are the ONLY ONES keeping it clean and open for use while every other player leaves their trash behind. If you and your guys were using the "It's not my garbage, I'm not picking it up" attitude and only cleaned up your trash, you didn't help yourselves.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.
