Directions are on their website. For us it was only 2 turns off of 95 south. Very easy to find.
Review: We got there at about 10:20. It was pretty easy to spot. There is a huge sign off the main road and then you see all the netting for the fields. You can't miss it. The parking lot was decent sized, so no problem there. There were only a few players when we got there. We had to wait until more arrived. We started playing at about 11:00. Most people we had all day was maybe 20 total. Not sure why more didn't show up. I can only think that it is because it's a new field or because it was supposed to be cold that day so some players might have decided to stay at home.

The prices were decent. About the same I'm used to. The one thing I didn't like is that they charge you $10 per person to use your own paint. But that is still better than being Field Paint Only like more and more places are starting to move towards. Maybe I'm spoiled because Hogbacks lets you use your own paint as does Pevs as long as you are not renting equipment. I understand though since fields make most of their money off of the paint.

So we finally started playing. One word - WOW. The fields there are AWESOME. There were only about 4 of them, but what they did have were well designed and built. They have real bunkers made of logs, concrete, sandbags, etc. and not simply a pickett fence someone threw together and said 'pretend this is a castle'. The realism of the fields is better than any I've been to so far. All the fields they have are woodsball. But it's the type where it is easy to get into the middle of the action and not where you're spending most of your time looking for the enemy. One field has this awesome bridge with a guard station and a concrete bunker. Another one had a well designed fort that had thousands of sandbags used to fortify it. A third was the woodsball version of speedball because you could almost hit each other from the starting points and there were only small bunkers to hide behind. This was my favorite field since it was pure action.

Also, the setup of the games is different here than what I'm used to. The object of most of the games is capture the flag. One team defends and the other attacks. The games are 25 minutes long (unless the attacking team captures the flag before then) and then you switch sides/objectives. If you get shot out, you can respawn after a certain amount of time (determined by how many players are in that game - usually between 2-5 minutes). This is good, because you're never out long. But it is bad because you will use up more paint than you would with a single elimination style like I'm used to. After each 25 minute game, you go back to the staging area and get to fill up on air, paint, etc.

Let me say that the owner and the refs were all really nice and stressed safety. They have 5 refs on the field at one time. One at each teams spawning area, and 3 refs on the field (one of which was the owner himself). The owner was especially personable and you could tell he really cares about making this field and your time there as good as it can be. I really do hope this place does well because I loved playing there. He said he just bought another 18 acres and is planning on expanding. He was describing one of the new fields he will be building and something about it having 3 concrete bunkers and a 20 foot tall rocket thingy that you will have to destroy. I didn't understand all of it since I'm not a military nut like my friend is, but if the current fields are any indication . . . I can't wait to see what they come up with.

The fields are the best I've played at. If you like action, this place is for you. I will definitely be back soon.
