Review: I went to this field with 4 of my buddies on April 9th which was a Saturday.

First off, the staging area and store: The staging area was great. It was inside a building with tons of picnic tables and areas to set up. The pro-shop he had was decent and the service for filling your tanks and buying balls was great. i could top off my air tank after every game in a matter of minutes. The building to set you stuff up in was great because it kept you out of the sun and wind - very nice set-up.

Now the fields: The hyper ball field was well set and very fun. The trench warfare field was also very fun, a lot of full sized trenches and bunkers. The fort they had set up was also fun, however very lopsided when one team was in the fort. But still very fun The maze field was very fun as well, but very intense since the bunkers were so big it was tough not to get shot point blank. But overall the field were greatly set up, very well maintained and free of debris.

Now the competition: This field is very recreationally geared. The competition howvere was a very wide range which was great. It had everything from first time players all the way to a few tournament players. The markers used were very assorted as well. A few rentals and a lot of gun owners as well. I was very pleased with the way the teams were split up as well. Our 5 guys were always allowed to play on the same team, which really helped us get used to playing with each other. Very fair refs as well.

Now my only suggestion: Lower the paint prices slightly. I spent 75 on one case of paint and admission. To me, that is a little steep. Many other fields in the area are now allowing you to bring your own paint or at least get a little better deal on the paint. Everyone is smart enough to know that usually field owners have a deal with the paint companies to buy the paint in bulk and for a MUCH MUCH cheaper price. I don't mind paying 50 dollars for a case because I know fields have to make money, however 65 bucks is a little expensive for pmi paint. Nowadays you can buy a case of marbilizer for 60 bucks. At any rate, I feel I would be likely to spend more time at a field that I could bring my own paint to and everyone know the best type of business is REPEAT BUSINESS. I would even pay 25 bucks for entry if I could bring my own paint.

Overall, this field was fun and I will definitely return and play it again, and of course cringe as I pay 75 bucks for one case and admission. I'l give it an 8 out of 10 strictly for the price of paint. Everything else was a 10.

The only reason its $65 a case is because thats the only way they can make a profit. Therefore they can keep the field goin and update the fields and etc...nice review though
