Review: This field has been progressivly getting worse over the years. Where it used to be staffed by ref's that cared quite a bit about enforcing rules it is now staffed by younger kids that allow their friends and teammates to get a way with nearly every rule that they "enforce" upon others. Earlier this year they started a field paint only rule whch would be fine if they sold better quality, nothing is wrong with the brands but the fact that the paint sits in this guy's van baking and getting severely dimpled just takes the fun out of the game. Paying $45 for his "better" paint that is supposed to be .684 but kept rolling out of a .679 sizer (due to sever dimples) is just frustrating.

On the up-side, I love the field, always have. The air-field and hyperball field are great, the mountain field is kind of dangerous but still fun. It is also much closer to my home than my prefered field, and with the price of gas in hawaii that makes a big difference sometimes.

Conclusion:

While it is a good field, it's poor staffing and double standards really remove from the experience. Paintball is suppossed to be a fun, competitive sport, not a game where you can get away with "wiping" because you know the refs. The owner is a great guy but he needs to find some more reliable people.

The entire ref staff that you are referring to during that time period was fired for failure to meet ref standards, some for blatant dishonesty. They were replaced by a much more mature crew which takes their work seriously, some of these refs being members from the University of Hawaii Paintball Team. I acknowledge that the field was going through some trying times with the old crew and by this post, please accept my apology and that the problems have been dealt with. Thank you for your observations!

Dispute:
If you have been to the field recently then you would know that many of the things recently have changed. I can't personally say that people who know the refs can cheat. However I can say that I'm sure that the refs don't knowingly allow people to cheat.
