Review: overall i consider this field average overall and above average for the island.

This field is excellent for the novice and family based players. levels of expectation are not as high from family based clients compared to seasoned paintballers. The day of the week you go determins the type of players at the field. The seasoned and advance players tend to play more on sundays then saturdays.

PRO:
Normally someone there to help you with tech issues.
lots of parking covered area's and seating
lunch is served via a catering truck at noon so bring lunch money.
3 fields(soft air, lego style, and what i like to call a woods field without the trees)
family style enviroment
clean
was impressed that the hydrostatic test date on my bottle was actually checked this a plus score for safety.
seperate skill levels.

CONS:
The owner is excellent but i think he is limited in quality of staff. Most of the referees are kids that tend to show favoritism to their friends and frequent players. They seem to get a little snotty when questioned. Im 32 yrs old so i guess i tend to notice things like that a little more.
My biggest complaint is more of a safety issue. There is no velocity enforcement on this field what so ever. They have an excellent crono station but no one check to see if people were running hot . I almost never see anyone adjusting there gun just checking and shooting targets. I got shot by someone with a hot gun and when i asked him to check it was running at 315 fps when field requires 285 max. Thank goodness the player was a honest person who turned it down and apologized in an excellent sportsmanship manner. As i am licking the nasty wound i got i thought it would be nice to not have to worry about it happening in the future. I did get annoyed however that when i mentioned it to the ref he blew me off.
What i found also interesting is that the field paint (you have to use) is supplied by brothers paintball in the back of a van. This supplier is new however, the lower grade balls($45) had dimples in it. This issue could be resolved by not stacking on pallets so high and to rotate the boxes which i think is not done after seeing it stored at their store. Also i guess i have old man mentality, they kids that are there selling the balls are more concerned about having a bs session with their friends then doing their job.

CONCLUSION:
For the family this is an excellent field since family style players don't have as high demands from a field. Next time i go to the field im going to bring up the issues to both managers. Im giving this place a 9 out of 10
I did list a lot of negatives but im a harder grader and i don't want to detour people due to my high levels of expectation. I just want others to know so that if they have the same expectations they will know what to expect
