I used to play at picasso often, but took a break for 2 years, at my new job I worked both saturday and sunday, but now I get to have sundays off and the last time I went I didnt have the type of experance I rembered. Dont get me wrong it wasn't the refs fault, or the feild owners. The fault relies on the people who played that day. Don't get me wrong I met some really cool people there and made some friend, but some of the people were inexperanced. For beginners its not a bad place to start but what I didnt like were the people who would sit behind a bunker with a box of paint on their back, and stick their barrel through a hole in a board and look through another hole and just lay it on the feild. The only way to get them out would be to either, thread a ball though a hole in the board or make them surrender, which would be the equlivant of storming omaha beach in normandy.
Over all I give the feild a 7, its a great rec ball place, its the other customers that gave me a negitive experance.
So what exactly was so bad about the people? Besides your statement about the players having a lot of paint. It's a BYOP field, so one would expect lots of paint flying. I usually shoot 1500 for the entire day, usually from 10am-closing time. I consider that to be a good amount to shoot, but my buddies always out-do me in paint used.
So again, I don't see this as much of a negative aspect of the field, or the players. The great thing about Picasso Lake is that it's BYOP, and the many many strategic ways to storm a field. My team and I have never let a good bunker stop us from advancing, even the players behind the nets.
