Overall, not a bad group. They are located at the end of a long dirt road in Tewksbury, semi-deep back in the woods. They have four fields and a base area that you can get your gun cleaned up at, get paint, or take some shots on a small target range. The four flelds set up are; three in the woods and one open speedball field. The three in the woods have well marked boundaries. One has a fortification towards the back and has some plywood bunkers and tires and is probably about a half mile in diameter. One is actually on the road you drive in on where they setup capture the flag or center flag games with some plywood obstalces, and fortifications, as well as some large spools and tires and some corrigated aluminum bunkers. The smallest of the wooded fields is about an 1/8th mile end to end with some corrugated aluminum bunkers. The speedball field has alot of blue barrels and some tires.
The folks running the show there started out the day grumpy as heck but warmed up as the day went on. The games were pretty well reffed but with a twelve on twleve on a fairly good size field there was a lot of room for people to ignore getting hit or just wiping off paint. A few people consistenly crawled outside the boundaries unnoticed until we'd told the ref. They keep the games moving and there isn't a lot of downtime in between games. 5 - 15 min's depending on how long the last games were. They do a pretty good lunch of burgers, dogs, and wings and supplied water and soda all day via a couple coolers. The water did run out around 11:30 and wasn't refilled so I would definitly suggest bringing water especially in summer. I enjoy woodball over speedball so I liked the courses and thought the folks running the show were fine, but my biggest knock is the prices. $30 gets you a gun(not bad at all for a rental and well maintained), mask and goggles(pretty chewed up), 50 rounds(for those new to this game, 50 rounds is like an 1/8th of a tank of gas; yeah it'll get your car running but you ain't gonna drive for too long), free CO2 refills(a tank lasts almost all day. about 1500 rounds depending on outside air temperature), and lunch. Most first timers will probably need a coat($5) and a case of paint was $100 or a bag of 500 will run you $30. Overall though. Not a bad place.
