Ejam outdoors (recballers dream)
ABC (not even worth mentioning)
Place is what I'd consider an ideal paintball/speedball field should be:
turf is excellent, beautiful green grass (used to be a golf driving range )they rotate the fields so allow the grass to recover, so you you're not running on bad terrain with a chance of injury. allows players to dive all day, the ground is like a cushion, esp. like last weekend when it was still somewhat soft due to recent rain.
bunkers are maintained all the time, if a field is not mirrored or if it needs inflating, just bring it to the staffs attention, and they'll fix it. your choice of not one but sometimes two regulation sized x ball field or a reg. sized 7 man field. depending on what your team prefers. or if you're in it for some recball action they have a wooded field with pallet bunkers complete with an abandoned truck in the middle.
prices are VERY good. =$20 all day entry, AND BYOP. if you need paint its sold inside at competitive prices.
staff is pretty friendly and laid back, a lot of the regular players know each other, so everyones for the most part pretty cool, and if you're new to the scene most folks (from what I've seen) will take the time to help you out
finally the competition, on any given weekend, there's always tournament teams, many with national experience, there to play against. so if you're looking to scrimmage or practice this is the place.
cons: (no field is perfect)
its kinda of a long haul (for me) but its well worth it. theres a lot of players that come out of New York (hour and half, at least) and they're there almost every weekend, so what does that tell you?
air station is quite a walk from the back field, but they've recently alleviated that by putting it near one of the x ball fields, although one in the back field would still be nice.
on a busy weekend, with a lot of players playing (esp. on the x ball field), things get heated up, I've seen several altercations, but nothing too serious. I guess its the nature of the game when you have a lot of very serious competitive players going at it with ramping guns things are bound to get ugly.
