I also was at the scenerio slam on Oct. 1-2. the games were fun (even though the insertions were run a little sloppy) and challenging. I met some of the funnest guys ever and together we had a good time. The entry fee was a little steep for someone who deosnt have a job but it made up for it with a few free meals (subs and pizza) and a extrodanary D-Day war in the infamous junk yard.
After playing here more i feel the need to update my review. I have played every three man tourny this year there and it is the funnest one that we play in the area. Rivalries and good natured ribbing are the best and the atmosphere is very friendly, with the competition ranging from 8th graders playing the young gunz to old man todd who gets the senior citizens discount at your local supermarket (wink wink). They have now divided the upper classes into a local pro and a ameuter league. The compressor always can fill your tank full and there is always CO2. Jared (the owner) is a very friendly and personable guy and does his best to keep everything fare and fun and to provide a personable person to work with. The field is pretty flat and very green, although i eyed up were they are putting there new speed ball field and it will be the greenest and flattest feild anywhere. With 10 or 15 foot netting it keeps spectators (which its free to come and watch) safe but it leaves the cars vulnerable, something that the regulars have picked up on, but it gives you a good laugh and we always try and see who has the most splats on there car. As mentioned above the junkyard is simply superb and once you play on it you will easily want more as it gives the adrenaline rush for both speed and woods ballers, as it is big enough to seek around in but small enough to be able to charge right up the middle.
How about another update? I recently attended the DDay, and let me tell you, this is the funnest event in the whole tri-state area! The Americans attacked from the junkyard and the Germans defended from what seemed like an un-takable hill, but it proved a challenge to defend it. My team was the only one that lasted the whole 3 hours during the last battle. I was there for the night game and it was pretty insane, between the amazing fireworks show and the red parachutes (that simulated the landing perfectly) there was a ton of paint flying and smoke grenades everywhere! There is plenty of space to camp, and they gave away 20 or 30 cases right at the beginning, amazing especially because its only a $20 preregistration fee, and you can bring your own paint! The hill has a intricate little trench that was dug out with a back hoe, and the ridge at its highest is around 40 or 50 feet! We have supplies at both bases and everybody who comes says they love it. Combat made a DVD and part of it was the paintball DDay and there is some good footage, i just picked mine up from the first run!
Every time I leave this field i am smiling. Two thumbs up! i give it a ten and with cheap prices you wont be disappoint either! After going back there many times i have not been disappointed, as i have played at many, many fields around here and Combat always seems to have me leaving happier than any.
