none, simply because there are not very many fields in my area.
Many people have bagged on this field for the wrong reasons. Number one, the people who said that its not safe have obviously not visted lately. they have a large yellow sign that says "barrel plugs in during staging". they will even provide you with a barrel plug if you need it. I`ve also read that people dont like the "underaged staff". Yes, many of them are young ,but,there experience has been seriously overlooked. They know what there doing. What is true,though,is that starting the games can be a little long sometimes but can be solved by simply getting the refs attention.
Moving on to description, these fields are very well laid out. I will try describe them all the best I can
1. the junk yard
the field with most activity, it has a fairly simple layout. inside the boundary, there is a declene from one end to the other with a starting sandbag bunker at each end. The "top" or higher end of the field has the obvious advantage so usaully the bottom gets one extra man. As its name implies, there are small bits of junk like old car parts, barrels,and wood pallets lying around for cover.
probably the coolest field on the whole property, It has a more "scanario" feel to it.
There is one attack team and one defense team. The defending team stays in a dug-out pit about 15x15. There is a sniper tower in the center about 10 feet tall (you are actually only about 4 feet off the ground but ad your height and you`ve got a pretty high view). It is dug in such a way that the dirt that originally filled the whole has formed its own "wall" around the whole pit. The attacking team has to attack the base until all occupants are out. As you probably guessed, there are more attackers than defenders
A field just like junk yard,excepct thicker woods and less man made cover. Its also a smaller field. Not a real eye opener
Another interesting scenario game is snipers trail. 1/5 of the present group goes and hides along a trail cut out of a thick patch of woods. The rest of the group has to succesfully escort a designated player (the "president") to the end of the trail without him being eliminated by the snipers.
On certain weekends during the month, they set up inflated bunkers in a big open area
I hope this article is helpful to all who read it

I have not played the field in a while but when I did safety was still a problem. As a ref I would just like to say that the "big yellow sign" telling people to put in their plug is useless. People don't pay attention to the signs. What you need is active referees that will watch and keep everyone in line, safety is #1 in paintball.
