Review: Just played out here for the first time since it's close to a buddy of mine. We'll be playing here alot, if not exclusively, from now on. Well worth the drive. I really like the personal attention I received. My gun needed some parts, and they hooked me up with whatever they had around to keep me going the rest of the day. Afterwards I went down to the associated Cherokee Paintball store and they fixed everything for free (just paid for parts). The folks who run Nitro seem to remember the people who play at the field and try to get to know them on a more personal basis. That goes a long way with me.

The second best thing about this place is the reasonable prices. This makes it worth the drive by itself. Play all day without having to conserve paint for fear of breaking your budget. My office organizes paintball outings twice a year, and I'm suggesting we use Nitro next time.

We played alot of woods ball when we were there (four straight hours of it). Would like to have seen a little more variety, but perhaps they had been playing the speed ball and air ball before we got there. The woods ball was fun.... I just like to mix it up a little more. They did mix up the style (capture the flag, ellimination, scenario style games - take over a fort, etc), which was good.

Also, I don't have much to compare it with, because I've always played in organized groups who rent out the feilds, but I wish the pace was kept up a little more. Like... set a 5 min timer between games. Seems like there was alot of sitting around, which is especially more evident when you are elliminated early. I don't get the impression it was any slower than at most fields though.

Safety wasn't bad, but I did have to remind a couple people walking around with their barrell bags/plugs off to put them on. Goggle On zones weren't strictly adhered to, although people kept their barrell bags on until the masks were put on just before starting the games. I guess I like the structure/bright line of requiring masks whenever you are on the field. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't wild west out there, but I've seen more strict fields when it comes to safety.

The fields themselves were great. As someone else mentioned, there are quite a few sticker bushes, etc. But I view that as "part of the game". There are plenty of more civilized, not brushy areas for a more open game. If you are willing to risk getting shredded by some sticker bushes, you can get into the thickets of dense cover. The woods fields have a creek running through them and a variety of other interesting topographical features.

Try Nitro. You won't be dissapointed.
