Review: The following are facts on my experience at this field:

~Presentation~
When I got there the first thing I noticed was how ragged out the place looked. I went into their trailer to gain entry and encountered a girl who had a very bad attitude about her job...I don't think she smiles much at work. Their staging area had picnic tables where you could set-up your equipment. I went to go fill my HPA tank and recieved whispered ridicule about my attire (tourney pants and blk t-shirt). Later I found out that the ones making jokes were the staff.

~Chronographing~
There was a referee who seemed to come out of no where (because he dressed the same as the players) to see us chronograph. He explained that ramping (very high rates of fire) was not allowed...even though the players he was joking with after chronographing us were in ramping mode.

~Playing~
The entire paintball establishment must have been on a 2 to 3 acre lot (not confirmed). They sub-divided that into 3 to 4 actual playing fields. The fields were so small that when our game began 2 of my teammates were shot immeadiatley.

Their was NO saftey briefing concerning goggles or barrel sleeves...which I thought was crazy because there were a few 13 year-olds there. There was no way to distinguish who the referees and staff were.

During a few of the games I was hit in places I could not see...so I was unsure of breakage. When I called for a paint-check the referees looked at me from a distance and kept on conversing about things not pertaining to their jobs it seemed. I think (not confirmed) that because of the rate of fire that they allowed...that they were afraid to get hit multiple times while doing paint checks. I called for paint-checks in later games to no avail.

I was told by one of the referees that the guys we were playing were going semi-pro which seemed strange because they seemed burned out from paintball. There was no comradery, laughing, smiling, cheering, etc. Even though I shouted "Good game." to them...it was never returned.

~Pricing~
21.65 was all I paid to bring my own paint...but even though it was cheap I'd much rather spend another 20 bucks at xtreme and have things like fun, saftey, and service.

~Overall experience~
This field gives paintball a bad name. Anyone willing to drop their under aged kid off their should have CPS called on them. I gave this field a 2 out of 10 because of the location.

As far as quality goes I'd rather play laser tag then at this place again.
