This was the worst field I have ever played at. Let me tell you why. First of all it took about 3 hours to set up and start playing. We had to fit almost 30 people on 2 table because the feild was over booked. The paint was so expensive it was crazy. I asked for a 1000 balls and when he asked for 120 dollars my jaw hit the floor. But i had to buy it because i love to send strings of paint. So when we first started playing it was all right i had gotten shot in the but pack and had called for a paint check and the ref would not come i had called again and he still wouldnt come. So that was another thing that ticked me off. Then after that i lifted my mask to spit and the ref went nuts and then there was this stupid rule if u take off yyour mask befor you get to the safe zone about 10 people open up on you, or theyll kick you off the feild. So i went along with it. The ref had told me to put my gun in front of me(my brand new ton ton imp). As they lit me up my gun was shot about 4 times and broke. Itrook it to the pro shop and the manager had no idea what he was doing when he was opening it up. So that had messed up my day. I was left there with no gun and to only use a cheap tippmann that they supplyed. Tjis is all i have to say about this feild do not go play there.
They speak Both English and French Oficially, I was with a predominantly Anglophone group and we were well-served. I vivist Bigfoot at least once a year for an experience with no parallel in the area.
Paintballs are insanely expensive and you HAVE to BUY THERE, keep this in mind, figure 120$ for 1000 or about 38$ for 300 taxes in. No significant volume deals. Not enough paintballs included with their packages to make playing the day possible without additional (I paid 37$ for field access and basic gear, 19$ for a sniper kit to get better gun, gloves, etc. and 44$ for 300 additional paintballs (competition). Thus 400 Paintballs total (100 normal included with 37$ day fee). for about 100$ for the day total cost.
5$ discount only if you bring your own gun, woo-hoo!
FINAL NOTE: It's worth it for the fields, but not an everyday place. Membership deals are interesting and can make it worthwhile.
That stupid rule is well explained several times during the day. If you leave the "Safe zone" with your mask off, you get the firing squad. If you enter the "safe zone" without the cork in your gun, same thing. The former is to protect you and probably so their insurance won't kil them, the latter is to protect people in the "safe zones". In either case, the firing squad has been a great part of my trip whenever I've been and I've been the target a couple of times myself. If you really want to have fun, they offer a free pitcher of beer to anyone willing to take 5 shots bare-chested from 10 feet away.
One last thing. If your PAINTBALL gun was BROKEN by Paintball fire, I would return it and not cry about how their pro-shop couldn't fix it. Aren't they supposed to take what they give? The ref suggested you put it in front of you to take those shots rather than yourself, he was thinking of helping you.
Also word of advice, learn to service your own equipment. I would not let a "pro-shop" employee touch my gun, theirs are fine, but my gun gets serviced by my hands only. (other than inspection)
Transfrmr: Pro-Shop are paid employees that are supposed to know how to service guns. Impulses are relatively simple guns to fix. It was his new gun, how can you learn how to fix your gun within a couple of days... :-|
