to the Field:
It is best to google maps it, it is pretty easy once you have been there, Waatch the turn at the top of the hill it is easy to miss. Field is right outside of Linglestown it self on the outskirts of Harrisburg
Review: Understand the the field was once known as the Foxhole. A field that once had a great reputation, That business was sold and ran into the ground, the fields neglected, debt and was abandoned by most original staff and players, Hense some bad reviews. I have seen The field in its glory and its fall an now its resurrection as the original owners are back and the core of its original REFs are slowly filtering back in. I expect lots of positive changes in the future. Currently here is my review.

SAFETY, STAFF, RULES
This field is better than average in enforcement of common safety rules. It is barrel sock only for a barrel blocking device as well as field paint only. Field paint is alittle more expensive here but Not as expensive as some others locally either. Tourney attitude is NOT TOLERATED on this field. The penalty chair is a good idea, in my opinion, a little public humilation for risking safety builds character. Very family new player oriented. The REFing is a mixture of old school woods ball and new players. They are mature and safety conscious, and dedicated. The chaff is now gone. newer refs (and players) are taken under wing and shown how to improve. Privately owned markers are asked to be chronographed. teams are well marked and kept even. A 10 foot safety rule is always in effect. Standard paintball and airsoft rules apply.

HOURS of OPERATION,
The field starts very early in the morning for most people, IT is not uncommon to be at the fields at 7:00 am usually runs as long as there are players or dusk.

PROSHOP
I can not comment on the proshop as I have not been there personally but has a good rep on the field. Services include a HOT FOOD counter with refreshments. CO2 and very soon HPA (estimates are end of APRIL) Staff can usually do minor field repairs to gear.

FACILITIES
5-6 woods ball fields 1 airsoft field (C3 Air soft is building this)
Overflow parking is kind of far away so if you are not out to the fields early prepare to walk. The road in is torn up but work is being done to improve it.

Due to the interms owner neglect some fields are not yet on par with what they could be. work is rapidly improving the fields, a differance is seen from week to week. by the REFs (did I mention dedicated) Do not be put off by the run down appearance positive changes are in motion. Bring your cammies because this is a woodsball oriented field,
This field does NOT cater to the speed ball crowd, nor does it want to.

Rentals are available but I am not familiar with them on this field.

PLAYERS
I have not had a problem with any player on this field since the old staff has returned. problems are headed off and rules are enforced reasonably and with aplome. Everyone is on the same page with the goal of everyone having a good time.

I rated a 7 it will soon be a 10 again
