Other Fields
in the Area:
Haven't played at a VA field before. Mostly down in NC.
Review: I've only played at 1 field here in VA, and I'm glad that this one is only 20 minutes away.

I'm gonna start with the bad stuff so that I can take some edge off at the end.

-I was a little worried because the refs looked so young. One of them couldn't be much older than 13 or 14.
-A LITTLE... run down... JUST A LITTLE though.
-Kinda muddy
-Not a whole lot in the way of proshop stuff


The good stuff offsets this though.

-The field owner (I called him DigiCams) Tommy is a pretty nice guy. Really informative and seems like he's anxious to help you with whatever.
-While the refs ARE young for the most part, they communicate really well and get on each other about checking people and are good about getting a hustle on to check hits and prevent wiping or cheating. Also enforce safety really hard.
-Good family environment. A couple older couples came with their kids and seemed like they had a really good time. No one's up there making fun of anyone for not wearing spiffy uniforms or rocking a 1,500 dollar gun. And everyone I saw there (only been once mind you) seemed like they were there to help.
-It rained that week for awhile, and a little that day. So the mud is a no brain-er.
-Really nifty concept field that the owner said they were constantly adding on to.

All in all, I had a blast here. It beat my experience at Freedom down in fayetteville by a good bit, the refs were on it and seemed motivated (whether or not they were who knows) There's a good selection of paint and plenty of it laying around. .. if you're using tournament grade paint on a walkon field to play concept and scenario games you might need to take your intensity down a notch and have some fun. The field seems like it's doing well and from the way DigiCams was talking you can tell that the guys there are motivated to keep making it better. I plan on becoming a regular up there during 2006.
