Have previously played at Paintball Ridge (Joplin, MO) and The Bunker (Seneca, MO).
No Hard Feelings (NHF) was very safe the whole time we played. All guns were chronied before playing. Also, strict adherence to barrel plug and mask rules was required; no one was allowed into the playing field without having masks on and barrel plugs were always required before entering the staging area.
There is a speed ball field and a woods field. There may be another field, but I didn't see it. Our group played on the main woods field the whole day. It has quite a bit of diverse terrain (dry creek bed, hill on one side, tall/overgrown grass in another area) as well as strategically placed natural and artificial bunkers. In the middle of the field is a two story, 1-2 person tower.
Hours of Operation:
Not sure. We played on a Saturday from 9:30 - 3:30. No matter when you are planning to play, I would strongly suggest that you email or call the field and let them know that you are coming so that they will be expecting you.
Here is what we paid....
Field fee and air for the day - $10
Field fee, air, and gun rental - $15
Case of 2000 rounds - $55
Cold Soda - $0.50
Pretty much the standard stuff. One thing to note, gun hits were NOT out.
NHF had all the services we needed. They offered rental equipment, soda, free water, and CO2 refills. Beyond purchasing paintballs, our group never required any additional services.
Hard to tell the extent of what they sold. Again, our group just needed to rent and didn't need to purchase anything beyond paint and air. Store front is walk-up, not walk-in.
EXCELLENT! I have never played at a field that had better staff. The owners were great. We played on a cold day and they brought out extra gloves for those of us that didn't have any. They also had rags and solution for cleaning goggles. Additionally, they put out a big container of water (with styrofoam cups) for anyone that wanted it. Finally, they were great about letting us play any scenario we wanted, as well as suggesting some fun scenarios based on the number of players and the field.
On the ball. Never had a problem with the refs. Also, ref was always ready to go as soon as we were ready to play.
We got lucky and had the field to ourselves. Like I said, it was cold.
Facilities were meager but adequate. No indoor bathroom, but there was a portable toiled (porta potty) not far from the staging area. Facilities got the job done.
Price list of snacks was listed, but I didn't pay attention to what was specifically offered. I do know that sodas were $0.50.
Everyone in our group enjoyed the day at NHF. If you like to play woods, you will love their main field. Most importantly, the staff is really nice, regardless of paintball experience.
