Review: Overall, a great field to play at. Close in location and nice terrain, however there were some safety concerns.

I noticed a sponsored player leaving his marker in the staging area without a barrel sleeve on, still aired up and loaded with paint. The sign on the wall not 10 feet away said "barrel sleeves are mandatory" outside of the field. In place of a barrel sleeve, I saw a squeegie shoved in the barrel. I asked the field staff about their policy, and they simply said all players must have barrel sleeves. When they heard it was their sponsored player, they merely shrugged it off and did nothing.

Later, I had a disassembled marker in hand (no barrel, no hopper, no tank on, etc.) without a barrel sleeve for repairs. The field staff promptly informed me that I needed a barrel sleeve on the disassembled marker. I do not know if this double standard was enforced because I brought it to the ref's attention earlier, or if they just always give different treatment of the rules to their sponsored players.

Overall, good building and field, but I question the field when safety rules are ignored for some. Perhaps other rules are also allowed to be broken?

Nice review-- For everyone else out there;

I've also noticed some of the safety issues. The field also does nothing in the way of informing noobs on safety precautions. This is, in my opinion, the most dangerous thing about the field.

can you bring your own paint? also can you rent just a compressed air tank?

No. Field Paint Only.

As for the compressed air tank, it wouldn't surprise me if you could if you asked. I have one so I don't worry about it, but you probably could
