30 April 2010 - 10:10 PMBattlecreek paintball opens today! New owner, new field! www.battlecreekpaintball.com
19 October 2008 - 06:24 PMAn Email I received from Perry...
I wanted to let everyone know that I am planning to reopen Battle Creek or another paintball facility in Mid-Missouri. However, I am looking for another location. One reason for the closing was that the owners of the property (I just had a lease purchase agreement) had some serious tax issues. The Dept. Of Revenue was about to send the matter to the prosecuting attorney to begin seizing property. I thought since business was so bad due to the economy that it would be best for me to cut and run with what money I did have. This also allowed the bank to make their move so DOR could not seize the property if the bank owns it. The bank is very happy that I informed them and I am on very good terms with the vice president of commercial loans. He and others complimented me on my efforts in cleaning the place up. The bank has even asked if I was interested in reopening it this spring. But to be honest, I would prefer to reopen paintball by itself somewhere else and not have to deal !
with the campground so I could concentrate on paintball.
I could use your help in locating a possible new location. If anyone knows of primarily wooded property (50 - 100 acres) with good access that is for sale or would be interested in a long term lease, I would greatly appreciate you letting me know. You can get in touch with me either through the BC forum or email me: email@example.com
Lastly, I am for the time being leaving the forum up to facilitate the paintballers of Mid-Missouri to have a venue to communicate.
Let us know if you are going to play somewhere so we can possibly join you.
Thanks for everything,

QuoteI have been too busy trying to figure a way to save Battle Creek. Unfortunately, it is true. September 20 and 21 will be our last official weekend. The Game is cancelled and BC is closing. I can't see continuing to beat a dead horse. Trust me when I say that this hurts me more than you'll ever know but more is going out than coming in. People just don't have the money to spend. You can thank Bush and the other oil cronies.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of you that have came out and supported us through the years. It has been a pleasure knowing all of you.
