This is the first and last time I visit this field. We get there and Clint starts the safety speech. So once he gets done, we start to put our guns together and Clint comes over and starts giving me crap for not having a barrel plug in my gun. Oh by the way, there wasn't a tank or hopper on it yet. Then my wife walks over to me and Ratman starts giving her crap about the 1st rule on paintball. She wasn't even touching a gun. My wife and kids lasted 1 game because of Ratman, they ended up going to Santa Cruz because of him. Thanks Clint, They left because of your attitude and your Big Mouth!
Today there was 2 private groups at this field. My group had about 7 people and another had about 20 people.
One of my friends shows up early and Ratman walks up to him and says "I don't think you belong here today there are 2 private groups. My friend explained to him he was with one of the groups. So Ratman walked away. Hey Ratman do you like our business coming to your field? If so try saying Good Morning to people. Before you act like a jerk.
So we play a couple games, and Ratman starts following us around the field. Now we play alot my group and the other group was all noob's except for about 5 of them. And we have the same amount of noob's and so the teams were pretty even. Right off the bat Ratman has a chip on his shoulder for us. Telling us where we can and can't shoot our guns during a game. I shoot one guy, but because I shot him over the out of bounds line he starts yelling at me. Don't you see the O of B tape? In the heat of a game I'm not looking for O of B tape covered by a fallen tree. So we continue to play and my friends gun has ramp mode on it and Ratman almost craps his pants and starts yelling at him. Hey Ratman ramp mode is not full auto.
So we finish that game and we are starting a new game. My son is chronoing his gun ( Who is 12 years old by the way) when I wasn't at the station yet and can't figure how to turn down his to 270 when it was shooting 272,because the gun was new to him. Ratman wouldn't help him. That's what your there for to help the KIDS. So they can learn.And have FUN.
I can keep going all day about Ratman.
He dosen't like Electronic guns or people who know how to play.
All day long smart ass comments keep coming out of that mouth.
Ratman anytime you want to play and teach us a lesson. Let me know, I would really like to shoot that stuffed animal off your head.
Enough about people wearing stuffed animals on there head.
The rest of the staff B+.
The field C-.
I was really disappointed with this facility. It was along drive and a waste of time. My family and I were looking to have a good time, and it didn't happen.

Dispute: Firstly, Clint's the man, and your complaints on him were all about safety. Second, I've played there and the O of B tape is VERY clearly marked. Thirdly, Ramping is an effin cheater mode, it might as well be full auto.
Lastly, this is a RECball field, where people go to have fun. if you're going to lay out on all the noobs, the refs are, and should, get mad at you, because they're responsible for ensuring that all players have a good time.
When I played there, I took it easy on the noobs and let my teammates do a lot of the tagging. To me it sounds like you guys were being plain jackasses.
dude the O of B tape is clearly marked. second, chronoing the gun is simple for most guns, and you should ALWAYS READ THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL BEFORE FIRING THE MARKER. I did that when I was 11. It's not difficult. Also, when there is no barrel plug in your gun *even if you have no hopper or tank*, noobs might see it and say, "Oh, that pro(cough) over there doesn't need one, why should I?
The refs don't give you that much crap. My bro's gun broke down, JR let him use his ion. It broke, JR let him use another Ion.
Ramp, full auto, whatever. These are a bunch of noobs here, who are not shooting 15 bps. They're shooting like 1-5. I do, and I still get more eliminations than all of you "pros".
