Review: Field is located in what was once a desolate area but now housing is popping up all over the place. There are 3-4 speedball fields that are varied in size to accomodate teams that are small or large in size. Obstacles include large tires, plastic tubing, and concrete pipes. These fields are well thought out and balanced. After several plays on each of these fields from both sides, I was not able to perceive any bias from starting positions. There is one larger field (I believe they call it "the jungle") that is spread on a square of roughly 2-3 acres of size. Obstalces are plywood reinforced by pallets and more concrete piping. There is an incline in the field creating an elevation differential however the flags are positioned laterally so both sides can use the hill. The field consists of hard dry dirt and scrub brush.

Sniper and bi-pod guns could be used for the larger field, but not recommended for the tournament fields. Camouflage recommendation: Desert or Digital.

The only trees on the field are used for the picnic and rest area. Good coverage from the sun is needed in the hot valley. Plenty of tables allow players to work on their equipment as needed. There are several work benches with rags and water bottles to clean up your gun next to the field entraces.

Each field has a dedicated referee (or two) and will run games on all field simultaneously if the population warrants it. I have to compliment the staff in running games efficiently and at regular intervals. The referees were professional but also did a good job answering all of the newb questions as well.

The girls in the rental station were quick and well mannered, handled paperwork to get the anxious players into the field. A roach coach was on site to give food to the minions of paintball. I opted to head to Tommy's which was roughly 2 miles away. Mmmm, Tommy's.

Conclusion: The field was a little dry for my taste, however the effient, well mannered referees made this possibly the most pleasant paintball experience I have had (and I have been around the block). I played well over a dozen games which I cannot say I have done at many other fields. I am excited to hear the owners recently purchased some land nearby and have plans to develop an additional field. I will definately visit again to see how things are progressing.

Keep up the good work. You help the paintball cause.
