Well... I dont really know where to start...
My team and I first played airball at Annandale Paintball this year, I believe it was in April. We reserved the field one saturday morning for 3-hours for our first private practice, which was the first time any of us stepped on a field OTHER then wooden and hyperball bunkers. We woke up at 5:00 and drove about an hour and half to Annandale. At the end of the day, everyone was extreemly impressed and loved our first expierence.
Hence forth, we were hooked. We played our first tourament (2nd time on Airball) a few weeks later at Tommy Guns Paint Wars and surprized ourselfs and other expeirenced teams, playing very well.
Since then, we have attended at least 7+ open plays and 4 Tournaments at Annandale Paintball. And through all that, NEVER have had a negitive expierence. Not once.
Thier staff is amazing, very friendly and knowledgable expierenced players themselves. With 2 SupAir Fields, one being an official 7-Man NPPL field and the other a 5-man PMI, and then a hyperball field, you basically are set with any style of play. (Expect woodsball...).
The reffs are some of the best in Minnesota, officially certified NPPL reffs, always on task and doing the best they can on the field to give the best call.
The customer service and proshop is also amazing. Basically free customer service on anything. The proshop is as best as it comes, all the prices coming as low as they get (beating out 98% of online stores) and products from some of the best brands out there.
Playing prices and paint is the lowest I've seen or heard for any Field in Minnesota.
The environment is the thing that impresses me most.
Everyone, wether the refs/players/spectators/teams/people behind the desk, is extreemly friendly and easy to talk to. Everyone is very relaxed and willing to help anyone in anyway they can. Everything is clean and organised and you are comfortable asking questions consirning gear or how to work on your play.
Annandale Paintball is one of the most rounded, awsomely sweet, fields in Minnesota. Providing everything you can imaging. From what I hear, there are alot of new things coming to Annandale PB 2006 and they are going all-out, so I would keep your eyes peeled for something to blow your mind.
