Other Fields in the Area:
I went to the Real Time Scenario, "U.S.S.R. vs. U.S.A.. It was a huge area that covered over 300 acres. There were all kinds of objectives that had to be taken. I was disappointed by the fact that play stopped at about 10:15 PM on September 24, 2005, and resumed at 8:30 AM on September 25, 2005. There was not much night play, because we (U.S.A.) did not have adequate night vision capabilities. We set up camp for the night and the action started in the morning. There was only one porta potty for over 150 people. Earlybird admission was $45, I paid the $50 admission and the walk on admission was $60. CO2 refills were $14 for the complete scenario, paintballs were $60 for a case of 2000, which had to be purchased through the establishment.
I got to see a lot of awesome paintball rigs, rifles, pistols, bazookas, and Buzz-Kill was an armor vehicle that packed a big punch.
Conclussion: I enjoyed the experience, it came at a cost that exceeded $360. The venders offered good deals towards the end of the scenario. If the range was open more often, I think it would produce more revenue that would make the establishment more popular and competitive with pricing. It was fun ... not something I could afford to do every weekend.
Dispute: I too was at this event (and all the others they have hosted). Seems some of the facts were off quite a bit...
1. Air was 10$ (and that was the only time they ever charged for air at an event)
2. Spot-a-pots there were 6 spread all over the facility & they offer indoor men & wemon bathrooms (the only place I know of that does that).
3. Cost of the event if you paid 50$ reg, 60$ for a case & 10$ air.. Where did you get $360 total cost? You would have had to buy 4 cases of paint? I don't know about anyone else buy I play at EMR & Skirmish all the time & prices of their paint runs $80-$100 per case of paint with the same registration fees...
Seems to me you gave the field a few undeserved black marks. The guys down there do what they can to keep the prices lower than any other major facility I know of...
FYI ... "CO2 refills" were $14 and I spent a total of $360 ... The places I've been to since writing the comment usually provide air with admission. My son and I played at the scenario, which is why the total came to $360. The comparisons used in the dispute are irrelevant and mute. I enjoyed it anyways and will be at the June 10th and 11th, NJ Nam Scenario.
