Review: I played in the scrimage league this thursday, and i'm just gonna give you a pros/cons list for you because there were many good and bad things about the field. Well we'll go with the bad news first

CONS
Long lines for signing in, paint, and air(and no offense but i took the ladies a while to fill tanks, and by my 2nd game they only would fill to 3000psi.)

Bad reffing, (didn't do checks when you called them, and some just stood around)

Bad lighting, in one of my games one of the bulbs burnt out and lighting was only on one side of the field and the other u could barely see with clear lenses on, my buddies on DE had all tented lenses and could not see a thing so if you have tented lenses bring clear ones or buy some

not a very safe area of chrono because a couple people let them fly over their heads into the parking lot

the woods ball field is right next to the entrance with nothing to stop the shots from hitting your car or truck I advise that you roll your windows up before entering.

PROS
Although lines were long paint was great not a single shot in either of my guns

They had an actual pro shop on site where you could buy gear, guns, tanks, basically everything u need, now they didn't have as much as an actual store but still seeing a field that has a store is good

The dead box alows you to see what is going on without being lit up with the other teams paint.

They were strict on plugs, and masks

Had a strict chrono rule

Things went prettys smothely the only thing I really didn't like where the reffs, but we'll see how they change in the next couple of months, I'll have more after a few weeks

I give this field a 6 out of 10 from the fields that I've played

*UPDATE*
OK this thurs june/1/06, was by far much better, the reffs still weren't checking very hard but at least were watchin the players very close and were pullin people instead of letting them have to call themselves out, the lighting was much better but i suggested to stan the put 4 big lights on the corners of the fields to further light the field up. but still i could see a lot better, also we got to play on both fields instead of just one. There wasn't as much controversy excluding one game where i played a 3 on 1(me being the one) shot two of the guys and the reffs didn't check there packs clearly enough and let them play on. All is good though and tommarrow is a better day, an update will be to come this friday. Good job Stan

Thank you for your review. We would like to take this opportunity to respond to your list of cons. We will continue to make improvements to our facility. We appreciate every comment. We are a facility that has been open only 6 months. Our mission is to introduce paintball to as many people as we can in a safe and well managed environment. In order to do that you need a certain ability of awareness. We chose to have this league to give players at all levels another time and place to play and have fun. You never know what to expect until you step out and try something new. We knew that the first night would be difficult and we would learn a great deal from stepping out and trying. We also knew that we would be entertaining people like yourself that need to have more information so that when they make a decision they have the facts. I hope your visit since that night has seen improvements in all areas if not please let us know. PAINTBALL ROCKS IN MISSOURI KEEP ON PLAYING!!!!

well thank you for being professional about my comment i was again there last thursday, and the only problem i had was the reffs were not checkin but they have improved, i wish the best for you guys and can't wait till tommarrow to play again, I must say you guys have a nice field(although very small) nice people, great paint(thanks to bob at tps), your reffs just could use a lil more work keep it up and the field will be very great. What also suprises me even though you have only been open that long your the first field to successfully make a scrimage league that works. I up you guys to a 8 out of 10 b/c of the reffs, but i understand that they will get better over time
