Where around town should I check for free stuff that could be used to build a paintball course?

Anywhere that deals in wooden pallets.

Go to an old train yard if there is one around you, most times they give away old railroad ties for free. You might also be able to get your hands on some pallets for free or dirt cheap.

Pro tip on the railroad ties, they are very heavy, dirty, and a pain in the ass to deal with. But free is free.

People love to give away old spools, water tower type stuff, etc.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

Pallets, spools, old signs, scrap wood. Pretty much anywhere that looks like they use pallets will give them to you.

Not necessarily. Some places get them on a deposit from the company that supplies what comes in on the skid, or they reuse them or sell them to recoup some costs of running the business. It is very possible to get them for free, but not every place will just give them away en masse.

Definitely check places like power companies for spools, or even the Free section of craigslist. There are so many things you can get for free on there.

anything that is being remodeled or being built new, can usually find pallets, 2X4's or even partially cut pieces of plywood (can use the small pieces to fill holes in the pallets)
pain forces us to make bad decisions... fear of pain is almost as big of a motivator

Go to the industrial district and find people who make food/fertilizer/etc... they often get supplies in 55 gallon drums and International Bulk Containers (IBCs)

Also, try posting your own craigslist ad with pictures of what you want.

Tires are free at the dump in a lot of places. You can make quite an amazing field with a couple hundred tires. Just place bottom row of bunker, fill them with dirt, pound the tire sides a with rubber hammer for compression, then place the next row.....

Not really movable once your done so get it right the first time.

We already have a few tires, but we're looking to expand the field so I haven't put too many permanent bunkers yet. They are definitely on the list though, I found some pictures with stuff like you're saying that were pretty sweet!
