I've never played down by detroit before.
Review: I played here in a tourney today, and I had a good time. I'll list stuff as pros and cons that I saw.

Pros: VERY good location, friendly people, filling your own tanks saves time and is just pretty much cool, there is a lot more talent here than there is back where I live. (around saginaw) they bought each team a pizza, which was pretty cool. for the tourny, they had 2 choices of paint. blaze and premies. I've never shot blaze, so I shot premies. They were really fresh, and I only broke a few, but I'm not really sure why. field has decent lighting.

Cons: I think they put wood under the carpet, and some boards are coming up, because there were a few lumpy and wobbly spots that I noticed. The lighting is decent, but it's nowhere near as good as the lighting that you see in the pictures on their site. the flash just makes it look sweet. The setup I played on was VERY open, only 6 bunkers on each side. 3 on one side, 1 in the middle, and 2 on the other. the middle on was in the very back. the side with 2 had one at about the 15 or 20, and the other bunker was up by the 50 (the ONLY bunker on the field that even remotley had an angle on anything) the side with 3 was pretty much worthless, I could never get an angle, so I just played the other side. a couple spots of the carpet were coming up, but I guess that isn't a very big deal, I hear they're getting a new places pretty soon. this may sound wierd, but I didn't care for the smell. It smelled like any other indoor field (paint and stuff) but the main lobby thing when you walked in smelled heavily of cigarette smoke. but maybe it was just me. The refs were decent. We only had one bad call, but it really ticked me off. I shot a kid in the head and then advanced up, but a ref from the other side of the field ran up, mumbled something, (still not really sure what it was) then he wiped off my hopper and ran off to clean off the guy's head. after he did that, I assumed that he had called me out, so I get up to start walking off, and the ref that should have made a call (he was right next to me the whole time, and saw that it was CLEARLY bunker rub) says. "where are ya goin? that was rub he was just wiping it off..." and I was like OOOO! so I turned around (out in the complete open) and start shooting at the guy again. the ref that "called me out" in the first places yells at me, then the other ref comes over and all 3 of us get confused. (the refs got lit up, and I laughed) anyway, they couldn't decided what to do, so the head ref came over and asked me if the ref called me out and if I heard him call me out. I told him that I heard it mumble something, but I wasn't really sure what it was. The head ref decided I was out. (my team won either way) but we didn't get full points because I was out. The refs need to be able to communicate a little better IMO, and they need to speak up, lol The other problem we had was, they would just put the scores up at random (it seemed to me at least) so you could never tell who was winning. This also backfired when they never put the score from one of our game up, and it ended up just getting filled in as a 0 instead of 20 (25 points was max) we told the tourny director, and he said if it detirmined whether we got into the finals, he would look into it. I don't see why he wouldn't look into it right away. scoring errors can hurt in the long run. we went from tied for 3rd to 8th because of this, and it was never corrected.

Just funny stuff: all this talk about lunchbox and rusty in these reviews interested me. within 15 minutes of being there, I realized who lunchbox was, and it was pretty funny. one person working there said the boss was going to hire a guy just to make fun of lunchbox, but I don't know if that's true or not.

The walk to the bathroom is kinda scary. the hallway is all dark and stuff.

chrono area is kinda squirrley, there was a bunch of water in the bottom... (I'm guess it's where semis used to load/unload, and it just filled up or something) but it was kinda wierd nonetheless. They said they are getting a new place in mid april (I think, wasn't erally listening) so I'm not really going to hold their facility against them,, just the reffing and the scoring errors that were never fixed.

besides the scoring error and halfass reffing, it was a nice place. I'd go there again if it wasn't 2.5 hours away... lol
