August 12th Review;
Getting very good. Our team had a great time and I only heard one other team complain. There were some refs that...well...I don't think they had ever even seen a paintball marker before-but it was still cool. The refs that didn't know what they were doing were outdone by the ones who did, so it was just funny to watch the "newbie" refs :-) Sorry ladies :-)

It was an amazing day, everything ran smooth as butter. The refs, games, updates, and "problems" were all taken care of quickly. Paint was excellent, air fills were all the way up to 45. Good stuff, can't wait for next time.

Again, God bless!

April Review;
Ok, time to update this. We came back, and had a blast. We had a misunderstanding with the FPS rules which got our team a deduction, but that was our fault.

We had a great time, the reffing was near perfect, field set up was awesome. The games went through quickly, and teams were still given a little time if they weren't ready (gun malfunction, guy in the bathroom, whatever) which is really cool.

Also, the brackets/game list and points were posted-which was great! BIG plus.

We've heard rumors of a new 5 man airball-if that happens we'll be glad to jump in!

Only one suggestion, it would probably make things much easier would be to break the tourneys up...5 man one week, 3 the next. I doubt that is possible with work schedules and such, but it would give you more ref availability and a lot less stress...

I'll be glad to see you guys on the 13th, hope you have a good time and we had a blast this time. Thanks Victory Hill for all the hard work in making this a good field. God Bless!

Old Review (to show how far this field has come since last year):
Overall it's fun to play here, but the rules and reffing need to be worked on. They work off of a backyard rule system instead of the NPPL standard that most fields go by.

The reffing is terrible, last time I went there were 2-3 teams that pulled out of the tourney because of the bad ref calls, wiping rules not being enforced, ramping was allowed(stupid) and sideline coaching was not being stopped. Also whoever arranges things needs to put this together a lot better-there wasn't a bracket list of "who played who next" or anything-they just seemed like they were putting random teams together. My team was in the Novice category and we were supposed to play another Novice team, instead they changed it and we played an Expert team "by mistake" putting us from 4th to 7th (throwing us out of the finals) in the tourney. It sucked.

I'm giving a pretty poor review on this, but I go to another tourney on Oct. 15th and if rules/management have improved I'll change my review.

The people here are great, and the field set up is perfect but the people in charge need more experience before taking on a tourney this big. I personally know several people at this church (I'm from the Rutland Church of God) and I'm amazed at how well this has taken off, just try to work on the bugs and help Team Captains out when they have problems with the rules or reffing. We've played paintball for years and have a lot of experience and our suggestions were ignored.

*Edit* Oct. 15th - It was just as bad as last time. Even when the field boss said "No Automatic" he didn't enforce it. I reffed a game to help out and saw a Tippmann 98E on full auto and told him about it. He said "it's response-it's allowed". I know the difference between and E98 and a 98 with response-I don't think he does. The kid with full auto ripped 3 players on a younger newbie team. The feild boss was also very rude to captains and players *again*. (This is not only my opinion, but that of many others at the field.) We'll stick with other tournaments for a while.

thx alot for the update man. all our refs are volunteers and we still had some complaints about the refs this last tourney. so we are planning a work shop day just for reffing b4 our next tourney to really sit down and go over basics of being close to the action and not being afraid of being shot. while no one is perfect and there probably will still be bad calls we want to minimize them as much as possible and make our tourneys as fun and efficient as possible. we started out just a group of us going out and having real fun. no bs with competition. but once we introduced the tourneys people started taking paintball at our field way to seriusly. so we are trying to accomidate both, the people there for fun and to get some exp. and those out there just to win. while there is no way to make everyone happy we want to our best. i hope to see you guys out there alot more and become friends with your team as we are with so many other teams........

on another note. good luck today at the tourney at team stainless's field. i work night shift and havent slept in awhile so this should be interesting. lol nothing a few yellow jackets wont fix lol. well peace out and see you at the tourney
