Skirmish, Poco Loco, Del Hobbs, County Paintball....
Directions
to the Field:
Go to mapquest or yahoo: 170 Dilworthtown Road, Thornton, PA 19373 (Close to West Chester, PA to give you an idea of its location).

The field does not have a sign, just look for the house with lots of cars parked by it.
Review: The field is great for what it is a free field in the suburbs of Philadelphia. It is a single field. There are a two fairly small forts made with plywood and wood stacked up. Public games have no entrance fee and field paint is $14 or $16 for 500. The cheaper was Nelson Precision and the more expensive is Diable Heat. I think CO2 is $5 per fill, I use HPA, so I don't know. No HPA fills. If you want pizza, everyone chips in $3 and they get cheese pizza delivered. It is run by two brothers (Jeff and Steve). They have a red chronograph ; 280 FPS field limit. There are no refs, so it is the honor system on hits. It is a woodsball field, camo helps a little because there are trees, wood piles that camo can help conceal you. Water is provided. They take a bunch of pictures that are posted on their website: http://www.thorntonpaintball.com/

Most of the people who play there regularly on public games are locals, so they know the field well.

Pros: Price (no entrance fee)
Cons: They don't have that many public games...most are private games reserved for parties. Field paint could be a little cheaper (volume discount if you buy a case)

I'm giving it a 10 because it is the type of field that i am looking for... wooded, casual and affordable.

Just to clarify -- CO2 fills range in price from $3 for 9-12oz tanks to $5 for 20-24oz tanks. Additional prices can be found at: http://www.thorntonpaintball.com/about/prices/
