Review: This was the second field I ever played at, and it was a pretty good field, especially if you like rec-ball and such. The main fields are very nicely made, and they have some good game modes too. Now I'm pretty much a speedball player, and they have a quite small speedball course there, but they only let you go to it between certain times, and since I don't play much rec-ball anymore, I thought I'd check it out.

The Speedball Field
The field was pretty cool, but it wasn't perfect, but no field is perfect. The bunkers were trash cans and boxes and stuff, no airball or anything. It is a pretty small field and to get to some of the bunkers you sometimes have to squeeze through a small spot, but that's fine. One of the things that I didn't like about the course was the ground. It was dirt with plenty of rocks, so you couldn't slide when going to a bunker unless you wanted to get some rocks in your leg and rip your pants up. The refs were cool and didn't call bad calls so that was cool. One of the only problems was that there was no netting or anything around the course, which was pretty bad if you were waiting to play. You might get hit while you were waiting, but they wouldn't start the game until everyone that was waiting to play had their masks on so that was also good.

The Main Fields
These fields are excellent in my opinion. They have 1 field that has defenders in a village-type place, with small wooden houses, giving it a kind of urban feel. The attackers start off in front of a castle-type thing. The attackers get a hill too, and it's actually quite cool to watch one of these games, to watch the team members help each other to complete the objective.
The other main field that they have is just plain cool. It has a wooden tank that one side can go in, they have tunnels, its just plain incredible. Like the other field, its cool to just watch games on this field too.

There's only one thing that has lead me to not go back there, which is some of the people at the admission/air refill booth don't seem to have much enthusiasm. Last time I was there, they displaced the pin in my nitro tank, making every time it was field it would just let all of the air out and wouldn't work or shoot my gun. Upon asking them what I could do, they didn't seem to know much, they just said that the tank was doing what it was supposed to do, letting the air into the gun, but when I asked why the gun wasn't shooting, they just said that my bolt was upside-down, which it was not. I asked one of the refs there about it, he told me to not to refill it because it could blow up, so I ended up not being able to play, and just payed to get paint and everything but I didn't get to play at all. I'm not saying this will happen to everybody, because my friend goes there alot and it hasn't happened to him, but I just don't want to take chances.

The prices they have a FOF are pretty decent, but I HAVE seen better prices for paint, but other than that their prices are okay. I would go back there again and overall I'd say it's a good field, with good courses, decent prices, good refs, decent staff.
