Northland Airsoft was formed early in 2008 by combining several airsoft groups from around North Dakota and Minnesota. We hope that by consolidating our resources we will become a more cohesive airsoft presence as well as get more players, bigger and more frequent and improved events. Events are held almost every weekend and rotate between fields. Larger operations are held during the spring, summer, and fall.
Northland Airsoft is home of the Operation Overlord series which is a recreation of the June 6, 1944 D-Day landings at Normandy, France. This event averages 50 players and is the largest airsoft event in North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota, and parts of Minnesota.
Northland Airsoft has fields near Bismarck/Mandan, ND; Fargo, ND/Moorhead, MN; Grand Forks, ND; Duluth, MN just to name a few.
Storm clouds brewing over JCPenney
I believe the JCPenney store to be the most architecturally interesting building in town. And the storm clouds, hands down, were the most interesting sight in all of Fargo.
If you don't believe my assertions about the lack of interesting things to do in Fargo--check out the town's website for yourself: http://www.ci.fargo.nd.us/visitor.htm. The first item under things to do is "the mall".
Worst then the movie, very industrial and rude
"One word: Rude and Ugly"
Fargo is a complete dump, thats why almost the whole town goes to Winnipeg and Minnesota every weekend. The town itself has drivers going double the speed limit.
The people here are very snooty despite the fact Main Avenue the cities main street has overgrown weeds and trash all over the place. The town is full of bidge drinkers because its such a depressing up-tight place to live. In fact, its the most drunk town in the Nation and usually on Sunday's they have puke piles when you walk down the street which the town never cleans up. Oh and it has a river that stinks and is very ugly.
Fargo - We used to shop there
We used to shop in Fargo all the time. At one point, everything was cheaper in the States. Now that the situation is reversed, we do not visit as often, but we went back recently to buy shoes (I bought size 14's and my son 4 pairs of 15's). Spent our duty-free limit!!
Fargo has the West Acres Mall, and a number of box stores in the same area (Target, Walmart, etc.). Fargo is still a better place to find shoes for taller people than Winnipeg.
I have heard people say that the people in Fargo talk just like they do in the movie Fargo. I don't agree. Perhaps in rural ND, but not in the city.
Fargo has lived though a flooding Red River a few times. We were quite worried in 1997 when it literally flooded most of Fargo and Grand Forks (and a huge amount of Southern Manitoba north of them). I believe they have added better flood protection since then.
