For starters,the guy who got this organized and booked for us to spend a day at QFA deserves a big THANK YOU!
Now on with the review,with our group of 14 people for a private party and prices quoted as to what costs would be for renters and marker owners a month and a half prior to game day,as we drove into quest, the place looked like something from way out in the sticks.
As the group got their gear together,8 of us including the organizer had our own markers,6 others had to rent.
First off,the prices that were quoted to the group 1 1/2 months before game day at booking time had changed.
Marker owners were qouted a $15 field fee and $100 for a case of paint,they ended up paying the same $40 fee as the renters did and 7 marker owners decided to share a half case with each other except for 1 marker owner who paid for a full case plus the $ 40 fee.
The entire group was a bit upset at the price change and you could see the emotions on their faces.
The hoppers were filled and it was time to get trigger happy.
As the first game was about to begin in some bush like scenery which didn't have much cover to hide in,the ref,some army dude stayed with the group til the game was done,game 2 started at the same location with the ref in hand.
As everybody went back to refill with ammo,the ref explained to the group about the town and what games to play,the group headed off for the town and waited for the ref to show up,ref wasn't comin so 2 guys went back to see what was goin on,they came back saying the ref told them to go ahead and play without a ref,we all looked at each like wtf,we went on and played the town many times which was very good,its the best town we've seen yet!
We stopped for lunch,although it was a bit drizzly throuhout the morning,somehow some of the guys got the fire goin to cook some lunch.
After lunch we were told to go ahead and play what ever we wanted,we were only limited to 3 fields as the others were claimed to be flooded out.
We played the town several more times and played gettysburg a few times which was an ok field.
After being tired out,most ofthe group decided to call it quits,packed our stuff up and paid our fees with most of the marker owners complaining about the price change and the organizer was overheard stating the we markers owners were quoted X dollars and the ref saying everbody pays the same price no matter what!
To date,nothing has been done to rectify the problem with the price change,the staff that day totally sucked.
The town gets a 10 out of 10.
More can be done with this place to make it look alot better as you first come in and the surroundings at the staging areas could look alot nicer too ,looks more like a garbage dump.
Again,thanks to the organizer of our group for the outing,but it doesn't look like we'll be coming back to this place again!
