    Hey I'm looking to set up a small invite only (20 people) indoor event within a disused building in my area. It's my first time organising it. I plan to have liability waivers signed for insurance reasons etc. I was going to try contact the building owner and maybe speak to the Gardaí about any restrictions etc.

    Has anyone ever had any luck with such a venture.

    To be above board, you are going to need (in approximate order)
    • The permission of the building owner.
    • Written permission from the local Garda super to be legal.
    • Actual insurance - as liability waivers aren't worth anything.
    • A good check on the building that it is safe.

    Different people along the way should ask you to confirm you have some experience/know what your are doing, the players running around the site with guns will not be visible to the public, and you have plans for what happens if anyone is injured.

    Those are just a few things off the top of my head. Actual site owners can probably add a few more.

    Cheers sliabh. I appreciate the reply. I guess the best thing for me to do is to write up a list and get things sorted in a specific order to get the ball rolling.

    Where are you situated? I've me and a friend who'd be up for a small event like this.
    How big is the compound you plan on holding this in? Room for sniping? Or close combat?
