Review: My first time experience with Orbital was not a very good one. With a group of 17 persons for this trip the overall consensus was very unfavorable for a return trip.

Here is our groups thoughts:
Pros
-Large property with lots of dense growth - great for woodsballers
-Good amount of cover - both natural and man made
-Good prices on paint and supplies

CONS
-Difficult to locate - directions are clear but property is poorly (or more accurately) not marked at all.
-Field opens at 9am but first game didn't start until 10:50 due to staff being very unorganized with field setup and game preparation.
-Even with a reservation for our group there was not enough staff to ref the games properly - we were advised that we would have our own ref's for our party, this never happened.
-Air setup was good for equipment - but only one person to fill tanks for the entire field was poor - also working on markers at the air station caused several missed games due to wait in line
-Refs were not paying attention to several incidents, fights, wiping, blatant cheating, all occurring in front of the refs were left unchecked - a ref even inserted his friend into a game in progress BEHIND the opposing team after they walked down the entire length of the field - when asked about it the 12-13 year old ref didn't respond just walked away and left the game he was supposed to be overseeing.
-Field entrance setup was poor - had to walk through games in progress to access most of the fields
-Field maintenance is poor - protective netting has enough holes in it to be ineffective in some areas, also not tacked down to ground allowing several instances where speedball games were shooting rounds into parking lot onto cars and persons without protective gear


When field was under different ownership (Weekend Warrior) they seemed to have their act together and knew how to please their customers. Without a definate staffing change to persons who want to ref and really run the games I doubt a return thip will occur anytime soon.
