Review: As I'm re-reading previous reviews and now writting this one, I tend to wonder if this is really the same paintball field.

Our usual home field had a huge tournament, so we decided to give DGS a try. It was over an hour away for our group, and we were not impressed when we got there. BYOP is a huge draw for us since the paint we use is around ~$25/cs (yes that's 2000 ct and it's quite decent paint).

When we got there, we were informed that there was NO BYOP policy except for team scrimmages. There were only two air ball fields (no more than 30-40 bunkers on the larger one) PERIOD. No X-Ball field (as I understood it, they never actually owned those bunkers anyway?) no hyberball field, no speedball fields beyond the two air balls.

There was no designated chrono area besides the deadbox's of the two fields, so people would walk on during a game to chrono. There were maybe 2 or 3 long tables, and a couple square tables to set up on, and i think 2 chairs at best. And very very dusty. We happened to go while there was a college tourny going on (ran way late apparently), and I wont fault them for that, but competition otherwise was non-existant. Virtually NO experienced players beyond the refs and us.

Other than that, their pricing is quite fair, and they do offer reasonably cheap draxxus heat, and there was little or no interaction with the staff to really score there. So I leave you with one suggestion: Call ahead and ASK about what fields, events, and pricing they have before you make the trip, as I expect many changes in the near future.

As for our group, we're sticking to Ultimate.

Sorry you had a bad time, guys. Not sure what you heard, but as our website says, we have two fields at present, the 120 x 180 and the 70 X 140. . We have 4 field kits, however, and rotate those. Did you see where all the trees are cut down? Those will be more fields by Fall.

As for competition, our 5 home teams were all competing in the CFOA - ironically where you came from!

Nope, we didn't have the chrono area set up, since you probably notice we were in the process of digging out stumps for the field expansions. We apologize for that.

Just to clear this up, the BYOP policy did change when the landlords building started getting stained from other brands of paint. But, as you kindly stated, we keep the paint price low to make up for that.

So, check our website message board for the next team scrimmage, and I promise you'll have some good competition! Hey, say hello to Ted at Ultimate for me! George
