Review: Let me just preface what I am about to say by telling you that I have been playing paintball for 15 years. I am in my 30's and have played at hundreds of fields through out the U.S.

I just recently played at this field for the first time and in the beginning, I was impressed. Mario's wife (sorry, didnt catch her name) is an excellent hostess. The prices are excellent and BYOP allows everyone to save $. They even had paint for sale for $50 a case. Not a bad deal.

After my buddies and I made our way down the hill to the staging area, we realized that we didnt want to make the trip back up to often. Wow....what a climb when your old and exhausted.

The netted staging area is nicely set up with doors leading to the fields. Chrono and air are right there when you need it and dont have to walk back to the store like at other fields.

I was impressed with the fields they have at this place. If your strickly into playing tourney ball, you probably wont enjoy the woods fields. There is a speedball field and western town could be considered a style of speedball. All of the other props and fields are nice and big. If you plan on playing sneeky paintball, make sure you wear long sleeve because of the thorn bushes. Sturdy boots are also recommended because of the creek bottom.

Now to the only 2 complaints that I have about this field....

1) The woods are your bathroom if you dont want to hike up the steep hill.

2) The most important thing about paintball is safety. I have seen plenty of injuries and almost injuries in my time to know that if your safety is relaxed, something is bound to happen. My buddy mentioned to me that one of the reasons he like this place was how relaxed the barrel plug/mask rule is. I looked at him like he was an idiot. I dont know how many times someone was firing their gun when people had their mask off. I have played at other fields that dont allow you to remove your mask until you are in the netted area and I have played at places that only allow you to remove your mask when the ref's tell you to, after everyone has their barrel plug in. Most of the people that were playing were regulars, but that doesnt excuse this lack on concern. Something serious is going to happen at this field unless they start to strickly enforce a mask/barrel plug rule. I will never be on the field without my mask on, regardless if everyone else has theirs off. It is up to the owner, Mario, to set a good example and this is not one.

Overall, I was pleased and I will return for a 2nd time, but I will be very cautious. I did mention to a ref about my issue and will bring it up to Mario if the ref didnt.
