I've been playing with Big Pearl long before it was called Big Pearl. I played with the company when they were trying to come up with a name. I know many of the staff very well, and I definitely know how the organization operates during games or an event. I will not be bias in my review. Although, I've been restricted in my paintball playing as of lately due to my job, I enjoyed going to a Big Pearl Paintball event because of the atmosphere. This field is very fun because of the many different playing areas at the field. The refs are young, but they improve every event I go to, and I know how hard it is to be a woods-ball ref. I say they do a great job. The big scenario events seem to be well organized every time I or my Dad attends. Yes, he is in his mid-40s and he kicks tail. He has bragged to me after every event he goes to and he tells me how much the field improves every time he goes there. Sometimes, especially at big events or scenarios they sell snacks and drinks. I'll be honest, the safety wasn't the greatest at first; there were rules, and an area for you to test your gun, but to many kids played around. Now, the safety is strictly enforced and I was impressed myself at how much they improved on safety procedures. They usually recommend you read the rules on their website. Also, they do something most fields don't usually do. One, they let you get into high rising forts, and they film most events and post them on the web site. They also take stats, which sometimes people take advantage of, but you can usually tell by the stats whose telling the truth and who really is doing pretty awesome. BUT THE BIGGEST REASON TO PLAY AT BIG PEARL IS THE PRICES. You can't play anywhere else that I know of for so cheap, and sometimes, depending on the event, you can get free air, sometimes if you help out the company by volunteering to build forts, you don't need to pay an entry fee. It's just a great field to play at that continues to improve. I give the field an 8.5 because there is still some room to improve in, but that's expected because they still are a growing company. Highly Recommend!!!
