DMZ - Still think the owner has some serious personality issues but I hear their field is improving. If only the owner could improve his attitude....
NTAG - Still the fan favourite.
Wasaga Beach - Awesome. Playing Operation Halo this Saturday!
Went out with a couple buddies this weekend. We’re typically woodsball players and haven’t had too much exposure to speedball. We had been out there the weekend before for a quick tour but hadn’t had a chance to play until yesterday. We were impressed.
It had been raining all day and we were uncertain about the condition of the fields. Upon our arrival, we found many people had braved the elements and were already playing. The fields were in great shape. There wasn’t any standing water or giant puddles. The mud is fun, but giant puddles get old quick. Thankfully this wasn’t an issue.
The paint was a great deal. NPG is sponsored for one Sunday a month and paint is super cheap ($15/500). I had a pod full of another field’s paint and asked for a plastic bag so I wouldn’t be playing on their field with off-field paint. April, the owner, said not to worry and just go ahead and play. I thought this was a pretty cool gesture.
We never got a chance to play their airball fields but had a blast playing on the urban setup. Extremely tight obstacle placements made for some great bunkering and firefights. The refs are quick to call players out and watch the games closely. The dead zones are fantastic, with no fear of a stray ball taking out your eye. Tight mesh surrounds all waiting areas.
While woodsball will always be my game of choice, NPG will definitely see repeat business from my buddies and I. We’re playing in their urban Tippman game and plan to be at Halloween Havoc. See you out there.
