none, because it phrases it "in the area". This field is a 4 minute drive from my house, the next nearest is a 1 hour drive.
Review: I have played paintball for a little longer than three years, and i never even knew this field exsisted until recently. It is about a 4 minute drive from where i live.
I found there website, and found when the next game was (only open for walk on play once a month), and i got all excited about going. After that i was so busy getting ready for castle conquest, i forgot about it.The morning of the game (the date i put on it is probably inaccurate), i was just sitting around looking at some wny paintball forums and i saw that open play was that day. I really wanted to play, but i had already missed 3 hours of play, so i just packed up my mask, and went to look around.
I got there and found out that to get to the field you have to drive up this dirt trail on a hill to get to the staging area. Near as i can tell this would not be an issue on a nice day, but it was raining, and i had a new car that was white. I got my goggles and decided it would be worth a little bit of a hike. I am used to hiking because i am i guess what you would call an "outdoorsman" (i hike, and camp often), so i didn't mind. After about a 1/8th mile walk, i came apon a shooting range, chrono station, a tent, and a small cabin. I was dripping wet, and the field owner invited me into the cabin. The rain had picked up on my walk, so there where 8-10 players chilling out waiting for it to let up enough to play again. The field owner ,"Tater", is a cool guy. He showed me the field, and we talked about markers, scenarios, local players, etc.. He happend to be a member of the scenario team i was thinking about joining, so he gave me the team captain's phone # and card.
The field was a couple acres of natural bunkers, and the land had a lot of elevation changes, and naturaly ocuring cover (small hills). The field had different "sections" created by a dense forest that fades to a field (dense,less dense, slightly wide open). It is setup with a large center bunker with four walls, and a roof. The center bunker is also a natural bunker, so the stick walls have small openings, it makes it more challenging.
The rental markers are very well taken care of, like new condition 98s.
Paint prices, field fees, and CO2 fills are all very reasonably priced. Most events are field paint only, but the field paint is a great price, and is well taken care of.
I have not played there yet, but the next open game is the 9th, and you can bet i will be there, and i will bring some friends from work, and some family members that want to try paintball out. If you live within a reasonable driving distance you should come out and play. Even if you aren't really deep into paintball, and don't play that often. Come on down its going to be a great day of play.
I give it a 9 because it is a few minutes from where i live, and the field owner really knows what hes doing, and hes a real nice guy. Its great to get off the field, into my car, and not have to worry about a 1 hour drive home.
