Review: --GENERAL INFO

I'm a noob, and I've only been there twice. Sorry, but I felt I should write a review anyway. I've gone paint-balling only twice, both times to this field, and both times I made a group of new friends. They are helpful, kind, and sell paint/air/co2 at prices that must be wholesale. The organizer's name is John, he's a really great guy, with a lot of really great markers. The rental equipment is plentiful, and of good quality. They rent mostly 98Cs, and vforce Armour masks. The staging area is a medium-wide dirt road, and occasionally you get dirt-bikers, or people on quads that go through, but they wave, and smile. The personal motorists have a big course at the end of the road. I've never been there, but it's where they all go.

Once in a while, someone goes racing past, and ends up splashing water a few feet from us, they probably think they're going to get lit-up, but we'd never do that.

Sadly, there isn't a lot of turn-around room, there are no tables, and no porta-potties, but there is a lot of heavily wooded area on the other side of the road where you're safe to do your business, and someone ALWAYS has toilet paper. John's car is a makeshift table, it's a little scratched, so he doesn't mind at all. Other people have pickups, and leave the gate open for people to sit on, or use to strip their guns. Squeegees get passed around quite a bit, everyone shares.

John enforces safety, and rules, but not to an extreme. Taking off your mask is not allowed, and I doubt autos are, either. But you guys with .40, and .43 caliber paint could play here if you told them so when you arrived. We play every sunday, rain or shine. In the summer, they have occasional air-soft meets. It's all un-proffessional. This doesn't mean that it's bad, or of low quality, it means that the people there are friends. Nobody is a client, or a customer. No employees tell you that they can't do this, or that, because it's not a business. Just show up and play.

--DIRECTIONS (Sorry, if they're a little hard to follow.)

-Go out of campbellton, past the archery range, and past a wooden sign.

-The big wood sign should be on your right as you pass. I'm not really sure what's written on it, but it's a rich, dark brown.

-Continue on the paved road, until you reach a large sandpit.

-The sandpit should have a sign with a large red, cartoon warthog head on it.

-Just after it, you'll see a dirt road, on the same side of you as the warthog, the right. Be careful not to miss it, the road is almost attached to the end of the sandpit.

-Go down the road a long way, don't turn off, just go straight. (The road is very rough, chock with holes, and puddles five feet in diameter, even small cars can make it, but they will take a few minutes.)

-You'll come to a group of cars, one grey, with J+J paintball written on the side. There may, or may not be people standing there, but there's usually a few 5 foot compressed tanks behind the car.

--TIMES

Meets start at 10 AM, every sunday. They usually end at 2-4 PM. No entry fee, Bring Your Own Paint.

--COURSE

The main field is a mix between speed-ball, and woods-ball. One side is more heavily wooded than the other, but both sides provide ample cover, and good angles for both defense, and offense. Two bases are built, one is a little lower than the other, and it has a raised, walled platform for sniping. The higher base has a pillbox, and a raised platform.

Off behind the course, is a 10x10 foot 3-wall bunker on the top of a 45 degree hill. It looks like it's really poor quality as you approach it, but once you get inside, you can see that it's quite sturdy, and gives off an incredible vibe. Just a little way down from that, is a small pillbox, just big enough for one person to hide in. It's hard to defend from there, but I can imagine it's a real hoot. Plenty of sniping spots, and very dynamic bunkers make for a fun, challenging game.

SIDE NOTE: This might be a Vancouver island forest, but it's a new-growth patch of trees. This means that at one time, it was logged, or burned down, or otherwise cleared. So the trees don't usually exceed a few feet in diameter. There are a lot of VERY large stumps, though.
