to offset this increase slightly however we are to now include lunch with the game fee, also the hire package price will remain the same & also include lunch.
the new prices are as follows.
Members £20 (Incl Lunch)
Non Members £25 (Incl Lunch)
Hire Package £45 (Incl Lunch)
Cans & Chocolate £0.60p Each (due to our suppliers increasing the cost)
However the consumables ie BB's, Pyro and Gas prices will remain unchanged as we are to take on the increase in price for these items.
This increase will not take place until the 1st April 2012!
While I can fully understand if people may be a little upset and surprised about the price increase, nobody likes it when something goes up in price.
But I do feel the need to try and put this in some sort of context.
I started playing this little sport of ours a very long time ago (and I'm still crap before you say it stevg, craig, justin and everyone else).
But when I started playing there was only one site to go to, and that cost £25 for non members and £20 if you was a member (can't remeber the cost of membership), you didn't get lunch or drinks. This was the 2000 twelve years ago for people like craig (just thought I'd do my bit help you with those maths gremlins)
Twelve years on a site can still charge those prices and then give you free lunch and hot drinks. Who said inflation was spirraling out of control.
Knowing the costs of running an airsoft site and and the margins in which a company has to work by, if it was my company and site, I would have put the price up last year.
All I can say is from all of us who understand a MASSIVE and I mean MASSIVE thank you to Mick and Justin for holding back as long as they could.
