Period of
Field Use:
1 year
Last There: N/A
1 year
Other Fields
in the Area:
Gateway: Better fields, but no on-site shop
Review: Safety: 9/10

+Refs always check for plugs/condoms when in the rest area
+Owner/Refs will brief new players on where not to shoot, etc.
-Chrono is mostly voluntary but sometimes the station is not out

Reffing: 7/10

+They will tell people to go out when they see them
+Tells people to stay inbounds
+Will give tips during play on where to move, when, etc. to newer/unexperienced players
+Just good guys, nice, friendly, etc.
-This is a HUGE negative in my opinion: Open play teams can get REALLY one sided. For instance, this past Saturday: One team (mine...) was made up of mostly kids who weren't even teens. Same Saturday: During closing hours, teams were, at one time, 6 vrs. 20+. As one might have expected, the my team lost...

Prices/Rent/Private/Open: 8.5/10

+Private play is cheap if you consider in the entry fee, a case will end up costing around $40 if I remember right
+Good paint, not cheapos
+/- Prices listed on their website was not the same I paid (-), but it actually ended up cheaper than I expected (+)
- Every once and a while, you'll get a bad gun
-Teams can get unfair (as said above)

Fields: 8/10

+Good woodsball
+Variety of bunkers (oil cans, wooden bunker, towers)
+The creeks (in my opinion) add to the fun
-The fields are best played with around 20 people per team, any more can get really crowded
-The new field has gravel? Not good if you like to slide.


+You can order pizza from the nearby Dominoe's
+They do sell snacks
+They got a new air system, allowing it to get filled up 4x as fast (if I remember right)
+/- Nice rest area but sometimes it can get crowded

Overall: 8/10

well as far as the gravel on the x-ball field we were faced with sorta a dilemma. Didn't want to keep it dirt cause obviously with it all out it the open their would be alot of mud and well mud sucks. We were afraid to sod it because it would take too long for the sod to settle in and we were afraid the grass might get torn up with all the usage. So we went with gravel, it wont get too torn up, it will keep things from getn too muddy and lets face it, its financially friendly. Alot of people like the gravel some don't I would say somewhere around 80/20 in favor of it. I can see both sides of the argument but I think its the right choice.

Would it be possible to tarp down the field? You have a good point on the grass though.

That is our plan eventually, to tarp down each bunker.

That's what happens when you hire an ogre for an open play ref (that would be me)

I'm 99% sure you are being sarcastic... But one could apply a design similar to a tent. Four stakes, two sheats of tarp (one cut in half to serve as the "door). Sorry if this isn't making sense.

Your review is fair and balanced. Nice.
