Review: Those that don't consider themselves advanced players may want to ignore this post.

I played this field in the middle of a road trip and absolutly had a blast. I had contacted some of the regulars there about the best time for me to show up. I showed up on sunday for the advanced group and was not dissapointed at all.

My first thought as I pulled in was that they had gone to alot of trouble to set up very nice fields with nets seperating all of them. I then noticed that all the fields were covered with very fine gravel which I didn't think very highly of. The day kind of started off slow because the reffing there is alittle on the relaxed side and most of the players were taking their time getting ready. When I say on the relaxed side what I really mean is that all the ref really does is start the games, oh well, what can you expect from unpaid volunteers. The gravel proved not to be a problem somehow, I wear redz pants and they held up just fine except for the raspberry I got on my hip. I do suggest wearing gloves though, I did a handplant sliding into a snake and it kinda got cut up but I was having enough fun there that I didn't care. The gravel is fine enough that you don't need to worry about your knees when kneeling. I think the rules are that as soon as you step into the netted area you have mask down, this rule was ignored alot and I would have preffered to see it enforced more. I am a person that values my eyesight so I followed the rule, it's kinda up to you. They also provide paper towels and a water bottle for mask cleaning, it's do it yourself but it's definitly clean and effective.

They had two full size X ball fields set up and they were awesome to play They had a couple Hyperball fields and we only played one of them, it was fun and I wasn't dissapointed becuase the airball fields were good. I did get to play with one Femme Fatale and one guy from Trauma which was very cool. I highly recommend playing here, the competition was fun and the feilds were great. It is field paint only but the stuff they were selling was great paint, it was customized Draxxus and shot straight and broke easy and bright. If you do go just remember that you may have to "convince" someone that they're out if you know what I'm saying, but I loved it anyway.

there are no unpaid refs at pbc. anyone who volunteers is paid.

when you reach an advanced level, you do not wait for refs to escort you to a field, the group of advanced players play as they wish.

just like in the cfoa, masks do not have to go right down until all barrel sleeves are off, and you are asked to put them down. advanced players know better than to begin shooting until asked to have all masks down, and they dont, a few shots to the corner, but there has never been an incident, and dangerous play has been immediately stopped and taken care of.

in pbc open walk on play, you arent allowed onto a field period without a mask down.
