This field is a good 20 minutes farther away from me than the other two, and considering it was my first time visiting here, I was nervous about it. I shouldn't have been. This is my new home field, and will go here before any other. Here's some of the reasons why.
The Reffing Staff:
These refs are not kids (unlike at another field, which shall remain nameless) They will paintcheck quickly, and will take a hit or two to get you out of a hot zone quickly. They all carry microfiber rags for cleaning off old hits, and it is the jobs of two specific refs to stand at each dead zone and make sure you're clean before you next insertion. Yes that's right, next insertion. (More on that later) They also check to make sure you're barrel bags are on before you enter the dead zone, and safety seems to be their top concern, along with everyone having a good time.
Most diverse I have ever seen. From an actual concrete bridge that you have to cross, to a two story tree house that must be breached, every game is fun and unique. The way the field is layed out, communication is required for either side to succeed, which the blue team learned late on in the day.
The Style of Play:
Play is Fast and Furious; Tor and Gunny, both former Marines, have set up a great experience for both the Die Hard woodsballer, and the whaling tourney player. Because respawns (usually) happen about every four minutes for either team, play gets more intense, with players making more drastic moves than they would knowing that they would have to sit out. Team work is more essential than at most fields. Each side MUST communicate, shoot and move to win. Don't believe me? Ask someone from the blue team. After we learned to communicate across the field, we kicked some serious arse.
Everyone at the field was very nice and helpful. All day air was included in admission, and you get actual food for your money. No $2 hotdogs here! Lunch consisted of A turkey or ham sandwitch, soda and chips. The entire staff seemed to be set on us having a good time, and even gave us a sneak prieview of their new "mortar", "30 cal" tippmann 98 custom, and are preparing to set up what looks to be a promising scenario game.
If you are in tha area, this is the place to go. I put Hogback in a close second.
~Overall, a 9.5, Because I hear Tor is putting in a 600 foot long concrete wall, and landing craft, so I gotta leave some room for that.
I will never go to Pev's again.

yeah too many gung-ho people were on the blue team that day, they didn't listen to anyone else and tried to win the game themselves... they learned by the end though so i guess it didn't all go to waste, good day though.
