Silver Spur Splat, Treehugger's Paintball, Paintball Valley
Directions to the Field:
East on Vann road past Castle Highschool until left on Prospect Drive.
I will start off by saying that this by far one of the worst places to play on the face of this planet. I am a tourny player, and I have played many fields across the US, but this makes the woods look like the Taj Mahal (no offense recballers). Here are my points:
*Safety* This is the ONLY reason I give this field a two, is because it is by far one of the most safe fields I have ever played on. The netting system is top of the line, and fresh. They are good about regulations too. Maybe a little too strict, but still safe none the less.
*Courses* The courses are horrifying. The layout of the bunkers makes it seem like they were layed out by a 3 year old. In the barrel field there are way too many bunkers, and it's hella loud when they take paint. Plus , there is sand behind everybunker so it either messes up your gun, or makes it difficult to slide. The concrete field is... different. The "alamo" field could be better. There aren't enough bunkers though. The hyperball field was my favorite, but it still lacked in the fact that there is NO 50 bunker whatsoever. There is also (on occasion) an xball field. It's hardly ever put up because the owners are too lazy to set it up. And when it is, the layout is always a nightmare as usual. Which really goes to show that the people there don't know what they're doing.
*Hours* This place opens at 9am, and closes at 4pm. Pathetic... Need I say more?!?!
*Prices* The prices are out of control!!!! The entry fee alone is $10!!! Plus they charge $1.25 for a 14oz bottle of gatorade. The only reasonable price is all day air for $5. Everything else is at least $10 over MRSP.
*Services* Don't even ask. If you have gun troubles, then you are on your own. The owners don't know $hi7 about markers or pneumatics of any kind. No one there is certified for anything. They aren't even certified airsmiths!
*Proshop* Again the prices. But their idea of a proshop is paint, tippmans, ions, masks etc. No gun parts of any kind. I went there once, and the owner tried to sell me 500 rounds or the "best paint". Which was basically every brand of paintball you can think of in one bag. He showed me the bag, and there was paint condensation everywhere, not to mention cracked shells, and demples out the wazzoo. I laughed in his face and walked away...
*Staff and REFS ( if you wanna call em that)* This was the worst part of it all. NO ONE at this field knows anything about paintball. The owners have got to be the most ignorant people I've ever met. And the refs...WOW....The refs don't do anything. They just stand around the sidelines with their fingers in their butts and watch. Whenever you call for a paintcheck, they look at you like your retarded. They have no idea how to ref. They don't use signals, nor calls. They don't even get out in the action. The refs watch people whipe and don't even do anything about it, which totally bring the whole aura of the place down.
To sum it all up, this place is a waste of money. Safe, but a waste of money. It's full of a bunch of rich little snobby cheating kids. Its the kind of place where you'll see a 12yo with an Ego, who gets mad when his gun won't shoot, and then tells his parents (who are standing on the sidelines watching) he wants a G7 now. The onwer's son bryce gives paintball a bad name. Last time I was there he was dry firing a DM6 in the crono area with his ramping on, and was telling everybody that he was walking, not ramping. So I grabbed the gun from him, shut off the ramping and then told him to walk it. Needless to say, he couldn't walk a trigger to save his life.
By the way, we played the "Paradise Pimps" saturday. Yeah they were pimps alright; because they were being raped by our balls all day long. They are a joke. They're a bunch of cheating, whiping noobs. One of my front men bunkered one of their men in the back of his head, only to have him turn around and shoot my front guy in the back 10 times. The ref called my man out ( instead of calling a 1 for 1) and let the other kid play on ( knowing that he just got shot in the back of the head). Guess we know what side the "refs" are on.
Maybe its just me, but I can't stand cheaters. I'll never go back to this field again...
