its an okay woods feild now, but really its no better than playing in other wwods that haveopen sand pits, which there are many around this area. paint is overpriced, air is over proced on tanks over 9oz, feild is $10 pluse you need and $30 mebership, so your looking at $30 on your once an year mebership, 10 bucks for the day to play pluse at least $15 for paint because you must buy thiers and if you get air they only have co2 which some is over priced, and 5 bucks for an arm band which you can get the money back at the end of the day, so every time you go you have to at least spend 25 bucks, so if you can get a lot of ppl to play in your local pit/woods then i sugest you do that because its an hole in your wallet, but its still an oaky feild if you have nowere els to play, and if they get a speedball course then maybe its worth the money, but w/e
As a PAL Volunteer/Ref, I respectfully submit the following comments to this reviewer:
1) The $30 annual membership is an "investment" in the Program. Money was spent by this non-profit org. to start the program. In order to grow the program, make improvements, add speed ball, etc., and give people a sense of ownership, we established an annual fee.
2) Have you played elsewhere? How about PBX? They charge $25 a day plus $45 for paint. How about Paintball Invasion? They charge $60/case for paint. We charge the annual fee, which requires a registration form. That way, nobody will come once, trash the place and be gone, first off. Then, each time you come, we are only charging a $10 daily fee, small compared to our competitors. Yes, we require you to buy our paint. Any profit goes back into the program. Can the competition claim that? Also, this prevents altered paint for any unfair advantage/cheating/ill-will .Our paint is comparably priced to elsewhere, and of good quality. For C02, our fees are less than local stores and other places. (A couple dollars/fill).
We will be doing compressed air as soon as the money is available to make the investment.
Speed ball is coming soon as well. Again, it comes down to $$. If you want a place to play locally (EHT and area residents), then help us to make this program work! Your membership fee assures a safe, well supervised place to play and will allow us to grow and improve the program. Everyone else is pocketing your paintball $$. We are going to put it back into the program. This is YOUR program!!
well, i'm not really complaining on much here, but you say you charge the same price, or even less on paint, when the same brand of balls can be purchesed for $12 a bag of 500 at shore xtreme, what do you guys sell for, $15, not that i really care about the two $$ diffrence, i'm just makeing a point that on you website there is a case of FALSE ADVERTISMENT. Second is, not to name names, but my friend who is a volunteer Ref. does not purches new balls every time he comes to play, he buys paint, and if he doesn't finish useing what he bought he saves them for next time, which means, not only are you not doing a good job seeing if ppl are bringing there own balls in, but your own volunteers aren't even respecting your ruls, which means, i'm sure othert people that go there have ball that were not purchesed, which means, well i think you should no. other than taht i have no problem with the feild, and i will happly play there agein.
