Review: I love this field. First when you get there your immediately greated by a Great staff. If on your waiver you decide to check it off for one year you get a picture ID alot like how Splattag used to do there Season Pass customers.

The Atmosphere: is great you can watch paintball from the comfort of your table while fixing your gear. There Proshop is really really nice could compare to Northsides. This place is really big for indoor (not the field but the whole place in general). Heck they even got a plasma screen TV to watch paintball DVDs how cool is that. Not to mention you'll see regulars practice out there and coach like Aaron Tholey and Vintage great to play with even just a few of there players.

Air Fill: BEST AIR FILL IN MINNESOTA I love there air fill easy, simple strait to the point, Push and go and you never hear the compressor and seperate ones for 3000 and 4500 and they actually fill to that pressure.

The Paint: Okay this was bad and I'm not talking just bad I'm talking really really bad. You go there pay 75 per 2000 and (I shoot a Angel Speed) before I never had a problem with chopping but every other game you would get a full shell chop. And it wasnt just me Dark Timmy, PM6, Alot of version of the Shocker, DM4s, and 5s not to mention LCD Matrixs as well were all chopping the paint as if they were shooting brass eagle ) $40 gun (thats just my experience and what everyone was telling) and I forgot a G7 as well. And while this wasnt enough to deter any hardcore ballers it still made you mad enough to hate the place. While they have said there taking care of the problem last week my buddy was up there on try outs playing with a ION and when I asked him about it, the paint was his first point and only complaint.

The Field: NPPL Super 7 bunkers are meh good. I would perfer X-Ball but hey it works and they alway manage to keep the bunker setup new and challenging. The turf is nice while people complain about it taring there pants me with my JT 04s didnt really have a problem. The only real complaint I have is that because people chop so much it sprays the field down with an oily coating making it extemely difficult to run and take me for example I slid from back dorito to Snake without hardly having to crawl. (Hint: off break put your foot on the post and use it as leverage.) But really this didnt really matter to me because it was a hell of a fun time either way.

The Refs: Jes what do I say me being a ref to I know a little bit about how it all goes down. But at times the refs seem to be blindly arrogent dont get me wrong these are the nicest guys in the world they talk to you and are buddy buddy with you most of the day which really makes you like the place even more. But I mean I face moed this 12 or somehting year old in the face as he shot at me from the pyramid myan thing about 10 feet away I'm like okay thats the most obvious hit in the world he'll walk off I mean for christ sake how can he even see. So I go back posting on this guy in snake and my ass gets lit up after he shoot me up and the refs realize that I wasnt even looking at him and hes got a obvious hit there like look you got hit in the gogs well thank you it could have been more helpful had you called him out 30 seconds ago. But hey there learning give um a few more weeks and they'll have that place watched like a hawk. You know it just takes a while for them to get used to it exspecially if there going from being a player to being a Ref/Player. All and all it wasnt really bad and because at times some people might have been blatenly playing on it was a experience never to be forgotten any time soon.

Overall: As this field grows I'm sure with time they'll get the paint problem hammered out or they will start to loose business. The refs will get better it's a given and you will become a better player if you go here. Period.
