alright, i recently moved to guelph for school and have been checking out any paiontball fields in the area. my residence put together this paintball thing and it was at the arena, so i went. in all honesty, on that night i just had an OK time. i mean everything was good, prices were about average, field was really clean, refs were ok. but i didnt have that great of a time, but i still enjoyed it. i went back to give it another shot this friday for their cheap night, and let me tell you, wow was i wrong...this place is awsome. im pretty sure anything i didnt enjoy about the first time was due to the fact that there was a lot of first timers in the res group. the refs first off were awsome. always in the thick of things doing paint-checks and everything a ref should do. the games were incredably diverse, i dont think we played anything more than once (except maybe speedball) the players there (with the odd exception) were great, skilled, honest players who were just there for the love of the game. the prices on this night were really good. 25 bucks for 500 balls. the one thing i felt put this field over the top, oher than the refs, was the cleanlyness of the field. the walls werent too grimy, and you could easily get tracktion on the floor. it was carpet i think. they did have a mercy rule, which i dont particularly like, but its good for beginners. i dont know a whole lot about the hours, on friday it was 6 until midnight. rules are standard. people behind the counter were fast and helpful. facilities are pretty nice, the field is great, staging area is large and has a bunch of tables. proshop, from what i saw was pretty small, just a few things here and there.
overall i gave this field an 8/10 (based on their scale of 5 being average) and while it wasnt perfect, it was close. i had a great time (mind you it was on a 'hardcore friday') and will definitly be returning on many fridays in the future
