This is my first time to the field, more then likely it will also be my last. I must concur with other posters that this field has some issues. When we arrived, the staff had to break in to the trailer to get things going. Apparantly nobody had a key. There was only a cpl of people working and since there wasnt a huge turnout it was ok....however if lots of people showed up I could see it being problematic. The fields are basically on the side of a mountain the problem is that the lower fields are very muddy/swampy and stink a bit. This includes the SpeedBall field as well as another field that I didnt get the name of. In order to get to the majority of the fields you had to hike a bit...uphill. The fields were a MESS! I understand woodsball is...in the woods but the fields should still be maintained. They should clear the fallen branches, even if just to make a bunker with it or somthing. The terrain is rocky, I recommend boots or somthing with ankle support since it is very easy to roll or twist your ankle while playing on these fields. The other problem that we had was the fields where not marked off in many places. My squad at one point ended up on a different field and then had to work our way back. We where told that the ropes had not been put up since the last big game, but that is hardely an acceptable excuse and could lead to a dangerous situation. Last but not least I found the reffs to be condescending and amatuerish, prefering to shout at players instead of clearly explaining themselves. Nobody enforced any chrono and judging by some of the welts I saw, atleast a couple of guns where running hot.
I wasnt very impressed to say the least with this fields operation. Unless I hear about massive changes to this field, I doubt I will return.
